Writing Blog Posts Tip: Do what you want!

So month of April kind of slipped by me! Yikes! I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks {sorry!}!  One thing after another popped up. I’ve been reminded that sometimes things get in the way of the best of intentions and that’s okay! You just find a way to deal with it and move on!

I decided that today I will do what I want! And it just so happens that I want to write a blog post!  I didn’t really have any topic planned;  I’m just thankful for the few minutes that I have this morning to do what I want!  Looking through comments that I need to respond to, one comment in particular needs a whole blog post to it self:

“Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.”

First, THANK YOU! I love your sweet comment! It really encourages me to keep writing!

Second, Tips? Well, please know that I truly consider  myself an inexperienced blogger and am new to this too.  I started my blog last summer, July I think!  I’m still learning through this process, but I guess that will always be true no matter what time passes!

I don’t know if I can give “tips” but I can let you know some of the things that have worked for me:

1. Do what you want!

That’s the theme of this post and the first thing that has worked for me. Write about what YOU want to write about. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about the style of writing, topics, or anything relating to your blog.  When you do that, it doesn’t matter how many readers you have or the topic, it just matters that the blog is important to you and is helping YOU.  Your blog will blossom because it is yours and what you are passionate about!  More than likely, as an added benefit, your blog will probably gain readers because if you are sharing what you are passionate about, then it will probably be important to others too!

The purpose of my blog writing is professional growth, so I try my best to write about what I do in my classroom and reflections.  I want to grow as a teacher and professional in the education field so that is what I write about, but I choose to write about personal stuff sometimes too- like my dogs.  I do what I want and reflecting on my teaching makes me happy, but also reflecting on my personal life makes me happy!  You must have a balance between work and personal or you WILL get burnt out!

Think about this: Would you write your blog if no one read it? I would! Don’t get me wrong, I am VERY thankful for readers and those of you who share. I want to keep writing things that I am passionate about so I can share it with you! It makes my heart smile every time my phone dings with a comment notification!  But if I didn’t have readers, I would still write. That’s how much it means to me.

2. Connect with other bloggers

I have so enjoyed writing back and forth with other like-minded bloggers. I enjoy it and have learned it lots from those I connect with!  Follow other’s blog, comment, etc… do the things you want people to do on your blog. Interact!

 

I’m not a professional blogger or expert writer, but those two things are I think are good places to start! I hope that has helped!

Make today and every day ridiculously amazing!
