To handle today’s SOCS and the Word of the Day challenge, and get in my JusJoJan post, I’ll give you the ground rules and a warning.
Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sky’s the limit.” Write about something that has or seems to have no end. Enjoy!
THE SKY IS THE LIMIT WITH BLOGGING
Blogging could go on forever! There are endless topics to blog about, and millions of bloggers eager for the chance to write about them. It’s a very competitive market, unless you do it for the pure passion of writing. Lots of people try to monetize their blogs and some are successful. Some people just use it as a sort of daily diary or journal.
Some blogs inform, others tell fabulous stories, and others use prompts like this one to get us in the habit of daily writing and using our old noggins. I feel like you have to talk about something interesting, you also have to know your audience, or your blog isn’t going to have much success. On the other hand, it’s a great community of like minded people (whom I feel are my friends) that support and encourage each other.
My warning is just that if you want to start a blog, go for it, but realize it’s not only fun and educational, it’s addicting and you may never get enough of it. It’s your baby, it needs to be nurtured and cared for, just like plants in the garden. Mine needs many improvements, I need to clean house and get rid of or update old posts and pictures to make room for new posts. The “happiness engineers” at WP can help with this chore, as well as other bloggers who are just as passionate about the technical side of things. I may need to reach out to them and get my questions answered. How do you delete posts and should you to make more room? How do you know which ones to delete?
While I’m off figuring all of that out, y’all have a productive, safe, Saturday! We are supposed to get snow tomorrow, but here in Texas, we take a “I’ll believe it when I see it” attitude about such forecasts. 😘
