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.

A Way

“A Way” in My Life

It is funny how sometimes we need other people to remind us of our beliefs. Oneonta Taekwon-Do recently put on an excellent seminar. My Taekwon-Do instructor Mr. Raymond Mannion, 2nd Dan brought up an excellent point in which he learned from his instructor Grandmaster Suk Jun Kim, 9th Dan. That Taekwon-Do is “a way” of thinking and living – it is not “the way”. Meaning there is more than “one way” in given areas of life. I believed in this principle before this seminar, but sometimes we need reminders to apply this principle to all areas of our lives, and for this, I am grateful.
