Sunday Five Blogging
Once a year or so I do a blog post about blogging. So here we go.
1: How long have you been blogging or reading blogs?
2: How many posts did you post last year?
3: Do you have a formula for posts?
4: Do you create posts ahead of time or plan them out, or use regular themes?
5: Why do we do this?
1: How long have you been blogging or reading blogs? I started reading blogs in 2005, guest blogged for a friend that August, then put up my first post on September 3, 2005, 13.5 years ago.
2: How many posts did you post last year? 374
3: Do you have a formula for posts? I always start with a photo. About 97% of the photos I have taken (the way we were Wednesdays has lowered this percentage.) The image gives me an idea or an inspiration, or sometimes I just think it is an interesting image.
4: Do you create posts ahead of time or plan them out, or use regular themes? Most of mine are created ahead of time, and scheduled. I have done Sunday five for a couple of years, and started The Way We Were Wednesdays this past year. I have done 12 on 12 a few times.
5: Why do we do this? Blogging gives me a place to share photos, I have been taking pictures for 50 years and love sharing my favorites. By limiting myself to one or two a day, hopefully I am not boring anyone. Blogging gives me a place to vent and share my views. Blogging everyday, has brought discipline to my writing. Despite the typos, my writing has improved, despite the strange sentence constructions, my writing is better than it was. To be a better writer, read, write, edit and repeat endlessly.
