One week ago I took on this challenge of blogging daily for one month. I had never blogged before so I decided to “Keep It Simple Stupid”. First because I am a newbie to this and wanted to pick a simple and easy subject which is my grand-daughter as she brings me joy each day. Also I am not a super genius on any one subject to be able to write tons of interesting material. Plus I would have to fit this in on a work schedule that can change weekly.
This first week I realized I still am not a genius even on my grand-daughter as I couldn’t find entertaining and fun stuff to write each day. I will have to learn a way to hobnob with famous grand-mothers to establish myself as an authority at being a pro MEEMaw!Royal Grand Mum!
I also heard that writing for a blog is not the same as the essays you wrote for school. As quoted from http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/writing-a-good-blog.html
“Professional writers often look down on bloggers, because their informal online writing rarely benefits from a good editor. Blogs are known for their casual writing and unpredictable subject material, but the best blogs have proven that — regardless of punctuation and spelling — even “novice” writers can be entertaining enough to attract a broad audience.”
So I guess I got the informal writing part just have to work on the entertaining part. There is hope.
I dream of the day when I have a blog that can be more serious, which I do want to achieve but only until I have this blogging thing down. I have to admit I am feeling very inferior to the other blogs. So am I writing this as an excuse……maybe but I think I am going to try to test myself to be better because when you are at the bottom you have nowhere to go but up.
Okay there is one thing I have that the other blogs don’t ….damn cute photo of my grand-daughter!
