This week Tanya has given us this quote to consider in regard to blogging;
“The expert in everything was once a beginner.”
Our learning process starts when we are born. As we grow older, we start learning. Gradually we chose a field that interests us and try to be good at it.
Not everyone reaches the level of an expert but with effort, we can become very good at what we like to do. Blogging is the same.
Before I started blogging, my experience of writing and formatting on a computer was practically non-existent. I learned the intricacies of the technical aspect of blogging as I went along. How to select a theme, how to place a header, how to make a logo for my blog, all these took tedious and frustrating eons of time. I’m still not very tech-savvy and once I have selected my theme etc with the help of a very good blogging friend of mine, Dr Tanya, I haven’t messed with it.
The writing part wasn’t very difficult for me, though it was a new experience too. It may be that I’m not writing research-oriented posts, but mostly poems and topics that I know about.
I don’t claim to be an expert in blogging, perhaps a mid-level skill would be an accurate description. I have learned a lot about how to write clearly and concisely so that the reader gets my meaning on the first read.
One of my posts that deals with this is;
Another post dealing with the writing process;
Learning to use the block editor was a challenge but due to the kind guidance of expert bloggers, I am now comfortable with it too. In fact I have found a lot of advantages in its use.
Thanks Dr. Tanya for this prompt.
