I’m new at blogging… so when I came across the article How To Write A Better Blog I thought, all right, sign me up. I’m willing to learn from the blogging experts. So I blew the dust off the laptop screen, wrote a note reminding myself to dust tomorrow and continued to read.
I found a series of interview answers from other bloggers. First up was a gal named Kheidee… and I quote, “Success is getting what you want. Once you are happy with what that, then your blog is successful.” (In case you are wondering, this is not a miss-quote.) I pondered this statement for quite some time. I still can’t make sense of it, but evidently it’s working for Kheidee.
From here I’ll just paraphrase (and clean up a little of the) other advice given.
“Blog by the rules” Jess said. Then in the next breath she said to do what I want and blog what I want. Huh? Jessie girl, have you been hanging around with Kheidee?
I also gleaned from the article that I am to “express what they are interested in”. I believe “they” are you and since I don’t know what you are interested in I’m going to assume its the same stuff I’m interested in cause that’s what I’m going to write about anyway. (<– award-winning run on sentence.)
Next I’m to “use my passion to teach others”. I’m passionate about having fun. Don’t think I can teach ‘fun’… but you never know. Just in case, I will try to put into practice what I’ve just learned…
So, here’s to you Jess… I’m about to blog by the rules which seems to mean I get to do what I want. Here is one of my favorite musical groups. I think they are fun. They are The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. Possibly I’ve taught you about a new musical group? I hope you find them inspiring.
Oh my stars… blogging was much easier before I read that article.
