Yes, I’ve changed my posting day to Mondays. In my learning curve I found that Sundays were not the best days to make a post. As you know I’ve been learning about blogs and trying to improve mine. There is a lot of information on the web about it. I hardly know where to start and stop. I guess it has to do with how much time one wants to spend on it. I have a lot of other interests and don’t want to give these up.I could lose myself on the web easily and while surfing came across a blog by Katie Tallo called ‘Momentum Gathering’, “ A Simple Guide to Remembering Who You Are”. http://momentumgathering.com/a-simple-guide-to-remembering-who-you-are/
It was just what I needed to hear after feeling so much pressure to make my blog perfect. I had been spending way too much time on the computer, trying templates for my blog and learning how to put my photo in the sidebar, (still not mastered), and researching how to write a better blog.
In my research I found and subscribed to a mini course on blogging called the ‘Well Fed Blogger’ by Linda Fulkerson. http://onbloggingwell.com/. One of the things she advocates is that your blog needs to have a theme that one writes about each post. This is also one of the tenants in a blog by Ollin Moralis called ‘Courage to Create’, a top best blog as per writers digest, in “75 ways to become A top Ten Blogger”. http://olinmorales.wordpress.com./ .
Lately I’ve been writing about my learning curve but I don’t think that qualifies as a ‘theme’ to write about. I think most bloggers do that in private. So as you can see I haven’t found my ‘theme’ yet. I’ve just been busy learning the fundamentals of blogging. And I’ve “skipped around in all kinds of voices”.
Maybe you can help me and tell me what you’d like more of:
- more of my struggles as I work on creating a good blog, like this one is;
- stories of my past, in creative nonfiction, like the Sinterklaas blog of Dec 5th ;
- more of dealing with the writer side of my life.
- more real-time struggles as a student of ACIM (A Course In Miracles)
I invite you to leave a comment telling me what you would like to read in this blog, our blog, yours and mine.
You are the light of the world. Take care, Clar
