This week Tanya has asked us to opine about this quote;
“Nothing worth doing is ever easy”
We, the human species seldom appreciate what is easy. I look at my grandson who likes to play games on his X-box. He gets bored easily of games he can beat in the first or second try. He, like the rest of the species, likes a challenge.
The same holds true when it comes to blogging. In our part of the blogosphere, many bloggers are of an older age group. Some had already been using computers while others learned to use WordPress on their devices when they started to blog. And that is not easy, as Dr. Tanya said in her post.
And the difficulty lies not only in the technical aspect of blogging but in the writing and organizing of the posts as well. Like Tanya, I learned both the technical part and the actual writing of blogging as I went along. And it wasn’t easy. The writing and formatting of the earlier posts was a process full of frustration and agony. I was lucky that when I started my blog, Tanya was there to guide me.
And when we talk of difficult, how can we forget what the introduction of the dreaded “ Block editor” did to our confidence. Many seasoned bloggers refused to use it till it was forced upon us. Now most of us even prefer it to the classic editor.
In short, I would say that this blogging journey though fraught with difficulties was something that has enriched my life. I’ve learned a lot from it. Blogging has broadened my mind and outlook, has improved my skill of writing and I have gained countless good friends all over the globe.
