July Blogger Challenge– #18: Share your blogging tips.
When I decided to join the blogging realm, I knew absolutely nothing. Now, I know a little more than that. (The noise you just heard? That’s me squeaking by.) The biggest reason (excuse) for me: words. I haven’t focused on the need to improve the blog, yet I’ve tried hard to improve my writing. I’m finally realizing that the two go hand in hand. If my blog looks nice, and it’s aesthetically pleasing, people will want to come back to it, and if it’s downright ugly, well… the words get lost. Improvements are on the horizon. In just a little over two weeks, I’ve learned a lot more than I have in the two years I’ve been blogging.
If I had to offer up a suggestion for those of you entering the blogging realm, it would be this: enjoy what you write. Don’t feel you have to stick within the confines of one genre or another. Example: If you feel compelled to blog about your family, yet your blog is fitness-themed (speaking from experience), so be it. Your readers might appreciate a change in the view. This is your chance to share yourself with the world. Embrace that!
Workout for today: Got back on the marathon training schedule, completing 6 miles in 60 minutes, give or take a few seconds. 🙂
