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.

How do you create a BLOG?

How do you create a BLOG?

Step by step, day by day, week by week,

I am not being flip. I surf through the blogs at wordpress.com, and I see a lot of blogs that are stuck in the beginning stages. I also see a lot of blogs that look the same – little or no changes from the template.

My point is – it is not that hard to develop your own blog. Just by experimenting with the different buttons in the different sections of your blog, fifteen to thirty minutes at a time, once or twice a day – you will have a blog that you can be proud of in a short time. Then you can concentrate on your content. Just by doing a little at a time, I have made a lot of progress, and so can you!

Don’t give up on that Blog.
