Blog It With A Post
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”Thomas Edison
The plan was to post regularly on this blog. I started back in June 2020. You do the math. Won’t be hard there are a total of 2 post. Good Lord, my first post is a bunch of mumbo jumbo. It’s still up and there are no plans to take it down. I’d like to save you from reading it with a quick summary.
“For over 20 years I’ve earned my living as a legal secretary. My new career path is web/UX designer. It’s a path I’ve been on since 2013 and will be blogging about.”
We Do Re-Do
Today is the re-start of the June start. Time to get back to blogging my career transition, even if it kills me. My first foray into blogging was a flop. This new attempt doesn’t have to be. I’ve come up with a few ground rules. Now I detest the 5 of this and 2 of that blog posts. You know the ones, where these are the 10 best or the 10 greatest or the top 10 don’t dos. It’s puzzling how one narrows a list of don’ts down to 10?
I guess I’ve lived so long, I can tell you, if your “don’t do list” is shorter than your ”do do list”, you’re doing it wrong. However, that’s a topic for a future post. Which winds me back to where I need to be – ground rules. Regardless of my aversion to list, the rules are being listed. However, this isn’t my opinion on the greatest, tops or best way to build a blog. This is my list. To keep me on track. I’m sharing it with you. Creating accountability for myself. Here goes it.
The Non-List List
- Proof read, proof read again, read out loud – post.
- Be concise.
- Be consistent (2 post per week).
- Stay on topic.
- It’s my blog. I can make you cry if I want to.
It’s a short list. No need to write a handbook. Can I promise you 2 post every week? No. Will every post be mistake free. Don’t kid yourself. Will I post hurtful, mean spirited post to make folks cry? No. However, I plan on being honest and the truth hurts sometimes. If you get hurt, it’s not intentional. Besides, you are welcome to leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you. Here’s to new beginnings.
