How can we blog effectively in this social media driven world we live in? Do we need a bunch of new apps on our phone? Not really!
Be who you are, and continue to create the wonderful poetry, fiction, quotes, photographs, and art you do every day so beautifully!
And here are a few tips that I’ve learned:
One of the most important things we can do to improve the health of our blogs is to visit other bloggers. If all you are doing is posting, that will not work out very well. Think of blogging as a community and we need to visit one another.
I had a college professor once that said 90% of life is just showing up. It’s that way with the blogging community as well.
Practice your craft.
Whatever you do in an excellent way…..give it your best! Write your best possible article or reach for that camera or drawing pencils and paints. Work on your projects and then don’t hold back!
You not only have a gift to share – you are the gift!
Yes, we all get down (even me!) but don’t live there. Offer hope and encouragement in your posts. Tell the world about the beauty and power of love.
This also includes leaving some comments to encourage others.
After all these years I’m still here blogging! Thank you everyone for reading and for your wonderful comments! I’m truly grateful.
If you’re new here, all are welcome regardless of your background, race, country of origin, your identity, your preferences or your faith. If you have no faith, I hope you will feel welcome here too! We all have a lot in common.
For those of you that are new here, I have just a few notes to share. My wife and I are older. Notice I did not say old! Just older.
As much as I love writing and blogging, the love of my life, the one I call “My Love” is the most amazing person on the planet and she is the one I want to be with. Due to the pandemic we like to go to the park together. And we pick up food and go outside to eat.
And because of our age we unfortunately need to go to the doctor sometimes. For example, I recently took her for her chemo treatment. And I get treatments for chronic pain.
So, I said all this because I do not blog from my phone anymore. I needed to “unhook” that part of technology. And I might be busy at the doctor’s or being in love or both. So please be patient with me in responding to your messages, seeing your posts, and visiting your site you asked me to check out for the first time.
