I like this whole blogging thing and I think maybe blogging kind of likes me back. We have the relationship of friends that just met each other but think it could maybe lead into something more, ohh Blogging, you make my heart flutter.
But also a lot of the time I feel like me and the blog are in a relationship where we’ve been together for a while, things are getting a little old, you know a bit stale.
Which got me to thinking, is there a right way and a wrong way to blogging?
Should every post be different, new or exciting? Should I have weekly features or just be spontaneous? And what about how I write? Is my life really interesting to write in diary form?
So my brain is a bit confused, and I’m one of those terrible people where I look at somebody’s layout or formatting and I lust after it. Yes lust. And then I have this hour of trying to get my broken iPad to comply with a very incompatible WordPress app in order to create a new shiny layout. Well it doesn’t work.
But does it really matter? Lots of people say ‘let your work speak for itself’ which to me is a very valid point. But still I think we’ll all admit we’re like babies that recognise bright colours and attractive layouts and ooo a search bar and ooh top posts.
And as to writing a diary like blog, people don’t need to hear about going to the shop to buy €1.79 wine and Jaffa cakes, haha, or do they? How do people do that and make it sound so bloody interesting?!
So now I realise that maybe a misguided stumble through blogging isn’t so bad after all.
Anyway that was my morning ramble, now I’ve mentioned Jaffa cakes, I quite fancy a packet or 2,
