My biggest regret at the moment is that I don’t have enough time to trawl through more of the amazing blogs that are out there. I know this is true of all of us and we have to make a decision of who we follow and who we simply can’t, at least for the moment.
But, this also got me thinking [very dangerous!] about how we go about posting on our blogs.
Do you carefully plan your post/page, or do you sit down bring up the page and get to work?
No prizes for guessing what type of blogger I am. Yep, I arrive at my heap of a desk, or locate my sexy, red phone and type away. That’s not to say that I don’t have a rough idea of what I want to say, [I will have been mulling over various ideas in my fuzzy head] but as for a draft…no way! That’s how I work and I find that the words, even silly ones flow better if I haven’t planned them.
I write articles for magazines and even then I find that if I plan them too much, they are stilted and boring. So I type away, see what I’ve got and edit and edit, until I’m happyish with the end result. Sometimes you have to know when to stop don’t you? You can overdo a good thing…less is more and all of that! Of course a pre-determined word count and strict brief mean that I have to behave myself, but I can still be creative.
That’s why I enjoy blogging. We get to say what we like, in however many words we choose and in whatever style we like. And an added bonus is that we get people actually reading our words. That still surprises me. I’m totally bowled over by the comments I’ve received and the views that my blog has had, and I will continue to thank every single one of you at regular intervals.
THANK YOU again!
So, do you plan your blog, or wing it? Why not share your secret? I don’t bite…much!
Thanks for calling by and enjoy your evening.
Until the next time.
