Blogging Insights # 14- Blogging an Art or Science

Dr. Tanya is the host of Blogging Insights

The Nature of BloggingQuestions ;

1. Is blogging an art or science?

I think that depends upon what sort of blog you have. A technical blog can be called scientific. And some of the aspects of blogging are related to technology too. The actual setting up of a blog and its writing on a laptop or any other electronic device also calls for some basic scientific knowledge.

Another important factor in blogging is time management and that is to my mind purely scientific. Divide your time judicially between real life and blogging in a way that you don’t suffer from its stress.

The rest, the creative, the imaginative part of actual writing is an art form. The more artistic you are, the better blogger you will be.

2. Can people without a “natural talent” for writing become bloggers?

They can and they do. You must have seen some bloggers who post pictures or drawings or recipes on their blogs. They do very well. In fact, there are some who even make lots of money from these blogs. Then there are those who mostly reblog. They just select the best content from the blogosphere and share it with their readers! Viola!!! No talent for writing required at all. ( I am sure that they would be a very talented writer on their own ).

3. Have you ever taken or taught a blogging course?

No, the thought of taking a course did occur to me initially but I was lazy and thought I would learn by doing it. And I did learn a lot from the bloggers I follow. As for teaching, well I am not qualified enough to teach but I do share any tips about blogging when I feel that they will be helpful to others.




Moonfire Goddess [fiction 118]

Sharing Paula’s take on the Prompt,
What do you see;

Light Motifs II

“Imagine feeling so alive that you’re both tantalized with the flicker of warm golden flames while at the same time soothed with the caress of cool midnight breezes.”

Tucker nodded. “Okay. Good, but why do you have her in that cowgirl getup? I was thinking something more… ethereal.”

“Ethereal?” Alice frowned. “But you said a strong woman. We didn’t want to put her in a nightie.”

“Fine, whatever.” Tucker checked his list. “What are those stone looking blobs supposed to represent?”

“I’m not sure, but the creatives felt strongly about it. New territory, I guess.”

“Mm, adventurousness perhaps?”

Alice nodded. “Yes, I think so.”

“Let’s shoot it as is then,” Tucker said. “Hopefully it’ll sell some Moonfire mouthwash.”

Daily Prompts- Birds At play

Red-breasted Robin tries to play hide and seek

The green leaves of the tree cannot camouflage

Its beautiful colors and hues in the spring

As I look through the glass pane, I see

The antics of these brilliantly colored birds in nature

And I am entranced with their tricks and tactics

I can spend hours watching them twittering and chirping

No movie has held my attention as these feathered friends do

No need for any validation to sit here and watch

( This poem is inspired by Marilyn and her beautiful pictures of birds)

In response to the following prompts;


Glass, Leaf, Robin

Where do you get your news?

Sometimes, friends and family share tidbits of news with me. Otherwise no TV, no papers or any other form of news for me as it gets me either very sad or very very angry.

What ‘old person’ thing do you do?

Try to go to sleep at 9 in the evening. Avoid noise and places with too many people. Try to set people straight regarding behavior and language.

When was the coldest you’ve ever been?   The warmest?

With my memory, I don’t recall what the temperature was like last month so I really can’t remember when I was too hot or too cold!

Do you eat food that’s past its expiration date if it still smells and looks fine?

If it looks alright and smells okay, I will eat it myself. But I won’t ask my family to eat it. But in case of meds, I would toss them out as soon as they expire.


Gratitude (not mandatory to participate in)

If you’d like to, please share some gratitude from your life.   

Though it’s a simple thing I am grateful that I am sticking to my diet and have lost around 25 pounds and all my tests were normal at my B last doctor’s visit.
