A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
I’m doing a new Blogging 101 course and this is the first post. I know I’ve got another one like this on my blog, but I’m not going to look at it. I’m just going to write again and look for the differences later 😉
Here are responses to the questions I was asked:
Why do I write?
I write because I HAVE to. I am DRIVEN to write. I must get it down. I must get it out. It doesn’t matter what time of day or night. I have to write……
Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
I kept a personal journal for many years. I have BOOKS of them. I would like to post some of that at some point to make into my book (I’ve started the book, but I get bogged down. I need direction and focus).
I think the aim is to get all of my current writing into an online format so that I no longer have this problem of offline storage and can just copy, paste and edit into “book” form directly from my computer. The aim is also to develop a readership, if possible, before ever getting a book out there, whether the book becomes a life story or a devotional of sorts.
I’ve been told people are often blessed by my writing, so I also want to widen the reach of that aspect of my writing.
What topics do you think you’ll write about?
I write about my faith, my life, things that amuse me or frustrate me, news I find interesting, new technology that interests me, and some health matters. As I say in my introduction, I hope to bring a little sunshine into some dark corners.
Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
Anyone and everyone is welcome and free to connect!
If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?
To be perfectly honest, one of my immediate goals is to improve my stats and to increase readership. On the way, I hope to improve writing skills and also to be a blessing to anyone who reads my blog.
There! I hope to be able to discipline myself to at least one post a day in blogging 101, since I seem to be a little sporadic, posting in spurts even though I write a little something every day in many different venues.
Thanks for reading!
PS. Here is the link to my previous response in the January course, for those who want to know a little more about me.
