A Month of Blogging

A Month of Blogging

Well it’s been a month of blogging for me. I started this blog on May 27th, 2008. I was totally new to the world of blogging. Just like with my weight loss, I wish I had before and after pictures of my blog. I am generally pleased with my blog progress. It was helpful to keep reminding myself from time to time with what I wrote in my blog post titled “How do you create a BLOG?“, and that is to keep working on it a little at a time every day.

I have been impatient at times with different aspects of my blogging ever since I started JB’s Weblog. At times I have been impatient with developing blog traffic. Though I have made good progress in bringing more visitors to my blog. At times I have been impatient with learning the “how to” in designing a blog. Though in hindsight I guess I did pretty well in designing my blog. At times I have also been impatient with deciding what direction to take my blog, including the last couple of days. Thankfully I read an article yesterday that has helped me put “things” in perspective. This article “Patience is a Virtue” was written by fellow blogger Jenny Mannion. So in regards to my blog’s direction, I guess I did fairly well, and I will be patient in “finding” which path to take it on.

I believe I need to do the following in order to continue good blog growth. I need to continue to have fun with learning blog design and writing good blog posts. I need to continue and expand trusting my judgment with blog design and writing. I need to understand that it is o.k. if I don’t have all the blogging answers.

All in all I have enjoyed my blogging experience, and I have enjoyed using this free hosted blog software from WordPress.com. Obviously I am not a blog expert, but if I can, I would be glad to try to help new WordPress.com bloggers. Drop me a line, and I will see what I can do.

Kool-Software/PicLens

There is a lot of great free software out there. These software programs enrich our computer work and play from the barely noticeable widget, to the ahhhhh-amazing gizmo, to the workhorse software program,

I learned about PicLens from watching a video on the Thirty Day Challenge. PicLens is a full screen 3D viewing experience for photos and videos. You really have to see it to believe it. It works with Google images, Yahoo images, Photobucket, Flickr, Facebook, MySpace, and more. PicLens is not a must have software tool. It is an ahhhhh-amazing gizmo. Give PicLens a try – it’s free, and we all need to experience the”ahhhhh-amazing” from time to time.

Beginner Blogger Tip

Beginner Blogger Tip

I am new to blogging, so I learn as I go, learn and do, learn and do. Listed below is a process that I started doing lately. It was a natural evolution with finding an easier, less time-consuming way of doing something. To save time in putting tags in my blog posts, I have started to save tags for different topics. I write, organize, and save my tags in a text editor(you can also use a word processor). Then I copy a line of tags, paste them in the tag box, hit the add button, and repeat the process. It is simple, it works, and it saves time. Below is a snapshot of my tagging for this article – keep on blogging.
