Blogging Insights – What am I learning

Tanya is the host of Blogging Insights

TODAY’S QUESTION 

What are you learning (or are you still learning) from your blogging experience?

♾♾♾♾

When I started blogging, it was something totally new for me. So, yes, I’m still learning.

The things that I have learned about writing;

Keep it short

Keep it simple

Always double check your facts

Check your spellings and grammar at least twice

Always be respectful of others in your writing and comments

Don’t start a controversy if you cannot handle it. If you are the one who thrives on controversy, go for it.

Always be true to yourself. State your opinions and say what you mean, not what you think you should say.

DO NOT worry about the stats. They will grow with time as all good things do.

Blogging, and writing are much like life itself. We learn more the more we do. I have learned how to write short stories and poems.

As for the technical side of blogging, I haven’t learned much so there is still a lot to learn. I just know enough to get by. I even have learned to use the block editor but just enough to write simple posts. Nothing fancy here.

These are my views about learning about blogging.

Thank you so much Tanya for continuing this very helpful series.

  1. Wonderful points you make Sadje! So true for all of us I think! Even though I have a bit of experience with the technical side of things (to a degree), I still find new things that a more tech-savvy person might share! Plus I’ve found over the years that simply using the software will lend one greater experience and knowledge!

    1. Thank you so much Melanie. I used to think I was pretty good with tech but the way new things are coming up, I feel like a dinosaur 🦕

  2. The only one that still mystifies me is #1. I have written short posts that 10 people like and much longer posts that 50 people like.

    The one that should always be #1 (in my opinion) is this: “Always be true to yourself. State your opinions and say what you mean, not what you think you should say.”

    Being true to myself has lost readers, but I’ve gained many, also.

  3. I totally agree. Stats don’t really matter. What matters is that you have content that is engaging enough to keep readers interested. And of course, it’s great to stay in contact touch with so many bloggers all around the world!

  4. Wow! What a learning experience blogging is! You’re leaps and bounds beyond me. I just wanted a way to journal my life a bit. I try not to be controversial as those thoughts go in a paper diary. Mostly, the results are meeting brave blogger friends like you. Something simple and daily, became so much more! And the education continues. 💜

  6. Blogging is an adventure, of sorts. There is always something new to learn. We start by wandering around, then one day, we realize we have found where we belong and what we are meant to write.
