I have read a number of blogs about blogging over the past month and I have learned a few tips on blogging. Some ideas that I have used include writing at least twice a week, and tagging my posts. I have also started reading more and more blogs, and I will hit the like button and comment when I feel so inclined. Bloggers appreciate that, and it sometimes leads to a follow, which I appreciate.
The reason that I started blogging was that I enjoy writing. I like to make people laugh by sharing some ridiculous stories. And I hope that people enjoy some of the random topics. I have noticed that a lot of people like to hear about my elderly parents. Other popular posts have been lists of things that I like. People like lists for some reason.
My husband and son get annoyed by my time spent writing. It’s not like I would be doing anything else to fill my time, especially not something that they would benefit from. My husband usually thinks my ideas are really bad, until he sees an idea come to fruition, and then he usually thinks the idea was really good.
When I am just making conversation casually with friends and telling them about my blog, my husband will pipe up “quit talking about your stupid blog…..nobody cares about your blog.” But then, when he reads one of my posts he will say “what I like about your stories is that they are always positive and they aren’t too long.”
I guess he likes my stupid blog afterall!
