It’s wonderful that nowadays you have the cyber space to log in and share your views and opinions with the rest of the world. At the time, there was nothing of the sort. Yeah, I wish there was, maybe I wouldn’t have stopped writing in the first place, or maybe I would have, who knows…
But I really feel lucky that, at least I had a screen and a keyboard. In case technology had never been involved in my writing process, there would have never been a writing process in the first place.
What’s more important? (to bloggers in general I mean) Content? (words, pictures) Fresh, new, creative, original thoughts? Ideas? What about views? Traffic? Visitors? Comments? Likes? You are probably listing other names, right? Yeah, we could go on for hours.
We want to write awesome stuff, that’s our common goal. We read each other’s work, get amazed, inspired, captivated and all hooked up in our fellow bloggers’ posts, besides our own lives, friends and peers, families, memories, experience and background.
Sometimes I wonder: “Wow, this was so good, what a beautiful, bright mind!” “What a wonderful, brilliant mindset!” “What strength and determination!”
Blogging is socializing (I should really stop stating the obvious I know), so besides the content we share, including words and graphic display, audio and video, what we try to do is build a bridge for communication. Possibly a High Speed Way Bridge! We can frame and shape reality, fiction or concepts as we see fit. In this cyber space we are free to write all sorts of things, then it’s the reader who will evaluate to like us or hate us, to come back or not, to be a regular reader, thus following and so on.
But blogging is not mere fresh material sharing (hahah probably lots of us wish it could be “easy” as that), blogging also requires a whole set of skills enveloped in one being:
I have read a good share of blog posts, by other fellow bloggers, how they manage the blog space with their busy real life schedules. I have read lots of useful tips, how to make it work and at the same time avoid falling behind with the post sharing here in the blogosphere.
It’s been two months of blogging to me, and for sure I am no expert, I have still a lot more to learn, but I am sharing how I cope with blogging and how I am keeping the whole activity organized, according to my standards of course ;p. I confess, sometimes I find it hard to keep up and I have my slack off moments, but I manage to recover pretty quickly 🙂 (for now).
