I read a lot of nonfiction. Any subject from nutrition and fitness to intelligence, birth order, addiction and so much more. I find these topics fascinating. Sometimes I find it difficult to “just” read. I want to share, I want to discuss.
In January of 2013 I made the decision to blog. My assumption was, I write, people read, discussion follows. Quickly I realized that I had to put some work in to it if I wanted people to look at my posts. Within a couple of months, I had over 100 fellow bloggers following me. The next realization I had was that, like Facebook, people collect people, friends, and followers. The majority of these people do not comment and I assume do not even read most posts. There is a small percentage who “like” and a handful who comment.
I never considered myself a writer or a photographer but I do both on my blog. I struggle with the writing more than the photography. I will continue to post and enjoy that handful of people I interact with as they make it worth it. Thank you to them!
This is for day 3 of Blogging 101. Penny for your thoughts.
When you first thought about blogging, you had a post idea; something you wanted to say, a photo to share, a story on the tip of your brain. Maybe you just wanted to cultivate a writing habit — but you probably had an idea for a post, no matter how nascent. Today, you’ll write it.
