lastnight I took sometime out to navigate thru this system.. (it’s like another whole world in here) wordpress .. finally . this was mentioned in all the books I’ve been reading on blogging, to go through the menus.. I was all up in my Dashboard 🙂 I tried to make a side column not sure if it worked. I clicked on all option boxes and there drop down menus.. this helped with a few things, I feel as if I can give these blogging books a break.. Yeah !!
another thing I did was I started to read other blogs.. I mean really read them, comment and read other bloggers comments. At first I felt as if I was invading someone’s privacy lol as if I was the third person in a conversation which started without me.. gotta tell you it was a little weird.. but the more I read, the more I seen how people take their time to hook up their page also the money they invest to have it personalize it felt welcomed. After a few blogs it felt good that I stopped by their blogging page and read their post.. I started to follow more people, I changes some settings, I clicked on links.. I must of lasted 3 hours doing this over and over.. I seen some post that is quick to their point and well written. then I seen post that it’s almost as long as a book -those I noticed I just skim thru (sorry)
I’m just trying to figure out what’s my taste in reading and who do I want to follow.. also this will help me decide what kind of writing I do.. how to make me a better blogger.. eventually I would even want my 2 oldest children blogging.. this really is a great experience ..and writing about experience lol I want to leave this post (gotta go back to work) with this quote
experience is something that happens to you, not something you achieve
I want to make this work for me..a achievement/accomplishment.
as long as I have fun,connect sometimes with people,maybe even find people with similar ideas, can write creative,help people (help myself lol), write a lot, comment, read, learn and most important to me is to be passionate and comfortable when speaking my mind.. I believe this blogging will work out..
