Just thought I’d pose the question to the people who were so kind in following me and who also asked for advice in getting their blogging endeavors up and running.
Is there anything I can help with? Would you like a topic or two about which to write?
Here’s a fun idea… Over the past few years I have been blessed to be able to post as a guest contributor on the blogs of other people. Who’d be interested in starting an informal post exchange? Just a thought.
Either way, you’re still here two weeks into the new year and that’s a good sign. You might have stopped going to your gym, crashed your diet, or pick up another pack of smokes but I suspect you started blogging (like me) because you enjoy writing. So don’t let lack of time, lack of feedback in the form of comments and likes, or lack of hope keep you from doing what you love to do.
- No time? Really? Wordpress is beyond simple to use. Just commit to posting something short like, say, a picture and a caption.
- No feedback? Do you know how many months I’ve gone sometimes without a single comment or like on a post? I know people are reading and if they’re not I’m still writing.
- No hope? Well, I think only the Holy Spirit can help you there; but perhaps the encouragement of other bloggers will give you a boost.
The beauty in writing is that human beings use it to express all of the above notions.
One final note… You may notice that I used a bit of very simple formatting above in the ordered list. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your formatting. It can sometimes make the difference between a story well told and one that’s just cold.
Keep with it, friends! I’ll keep reading.
