I read/heard somewhere that reading your own work is a form of narcissism. I would much rather call it self-evaluation or self-assessment.
How old is your current blog/website?
I started my blog on 6th September 2018. Though I had a WordPress account six months prior to that I didn’t use it for blogging, just reading blogs.
Do you ever look back at your site i.e. read through your old posts?
I didn’t use to do it. But then Fandango started his Friday Flashback series and since I had crossed my one year mark, I decided to join in. It was a very interesting experience. I found many of my previous posts very interesting and some I didn’t even remember writing. The reason, I think is twofold;
a) I write most of my posts at the time of posting. That is, there is not a long time spent thinking or writing. So it’s a spur of the moment thing.
b) I write 4-5 blog posts every day and so it’s no wonder that I forget that I even wrote a few of them.
The pleasant surprise was that I found them quite good!!
How long ago did you update your about page?
I never made an “About me“ page till I think six months into blogging. And at that point, it was Renard who in one of his posts stressed upon the importance of an About me page. So I created mine. So far it is relevant to what I am writing on my blog so I have no plans to change it.
If you were to start a new blog today, what would you do differently?
Nopes! I am happy with the way my blog is developing. It is growing as am I. I am learning new skills and experimenting with new genres. I have recently started out I should say, re-started Helen’s Prompt, What do you see. It has been well received. And I am thinking of making it a regular feature.
Besides, I have this philosophy in life that whatever we do we do for a reason. So good or bad, right or wrong, it all has a purpose. I think when I have made mistakes, I have learned from them. So it’s all to a good end.
