This week Dr. Tanya has asked our opinion about this quote in regards to Blogging.
To thrive in life you need three bones. A wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone.
I think to thrive in life we do need a strong backbone. And of course, having a good sense of humor can save us in many situations in life. And we do need a bit of luck now and then to make things click together.
Same is true for blogging.
Not everyone needs these qualities because we all blog for different reasons. If a person blogs to randomly record their thoughts, work through their issues or just to get a bit of writing practice, they don’t need any of the three qualities.
But for a serious blogger, all these are a requirement, perhaps luck not that much, but determination and humor are necessary to make something of their blog.
Starting a blog is easy, anyone can do it. To persevere in blogging you need determination. I think it’s the most needed quality one needs to have. To succeed, you have to be consistent in your posting schedule. Putting aside some time to create a post and publishing it according to the schedule you have set for yourself is important.
A sense of humor is needed when problems raise their heads. Problems like glitches in the platform you’re using, or the technical difficulties that are a part and parcel of blogging process. Sometimes you also need a sense of humor to rescue you from unpleasant comments people can leave on your posts.
And to find your place in the blogging community, you need a bit of luck. If your posts are being read by like-minded people, you’ll generate more interaction regarding your blog.
To sum it up, determination is what gets your blog going, a sense of humor will help you stay here and luck will have you connecting with your sort of people.
Thanks, Tanya for this thought provoking quote.
