What shape is that? 😆

Transformation… happens all the while everywhere, in every medium and more often than not you have to “see” it before you even start, else your’e just hacking away at a block… in hope!  A bit like blogging and facing a blank screen really, you ought to know what your aim is or where your’e going to get there.

So, I wonder why it is I all to often struggle to get started on alot of post I do… I don’t really know for certain, I just write whatever half the time, which means I just expect the unexpected, which is also in one way how I hope readers see things here, not quite knowing what to expect when they get here, from post to post.

Is that a bad thing?

I don’t know, in two minds really about it, everything has pluses and negatives, all different for everyone…

No doubt you as I do, read blogs where you know half the time to expect a certain topic of theme because let’s face it, that’s their niche, topic. You know to expect marketing of some sort reading Seth Godin’s blog, or something like that, some people blog about the same sort of thing day in day out.

Done that, been there, didn’t really fit me!

So I looked in the mirror and told it straight…

moiWhich had to be done really. 🙂

Sort it out and get cracking on making it fit me, even if I am unsure how, but by cracking on with it, I find out soon enough where my groove is… that is, I should always be blogging but not always posting.

I get the urge to write something at odd times so in that case I should just do that, doesn’t mean I gotta publish it. 😉

So, I have started a few post and saved as drafts, none of which I am ready to publish, but that’s why I’ve not posted in a few days… 😉

This should get creativity flowing, hopefully.

I am changing as I go along just like anyone else, what interest me is changing, so to that end I can’t honestly say right now what I will be sharing on here.

Roll with it… 😆

One thing I am certain of is I need to learn alot more about what this WPress is capable of then utilise what I like, what you will like, there is so much more to this platform than I realised… 🙂

I am starting to realise a few new things SEO wise too.

I just added the facebook like button, for those of you who come from facebook I hope you use it. 🙂

    I can totally relate to that. I think sometimes you just need a few days not worrying about the next post… and then the ideas come pouring in. I guess the brain needs a little rest occasionally. 🙂

      Hi Melinda…

      “brain needs a little rest occasionally” 😛 Especially at my age. 😛

      I have also spent a few days sorting other crap I no longer want to even bother with, getting more organised is key for me now. 🙂

    I started blogging 5 years ago writing about parenting and home life in general to do paid posts. I blogged everyday and was pretty excited to get comments then. Now, the blog is still there but I have lost the enthusiasm to write daily. But neither do I want to close it down.

    Because I too have the urge to write now and then and leave the posts there to “simmer”. When I have the mood, I go back to edit before publishing. It’s one way to keep the blog updated and still attracts visitors.

      Hi Audrey,

      I have a few blogs like that, I took a few down, left a few up, the ones I left up I may just post once every 6 weeks or something, just to keep it “alive” and maybe sometime they will pick up again. 😉

      The others, I just deleted, sod it, I have no urge to write for them at all.

      Less is more.. 😉

    that’s a smart move Rob. well, I actually have done that too before I launched my personal blog, I made sure to have advance posts/drafts ready (about 10 posts) in case I get busy with work in the future.

    Liked your picture there, just shows how time really change us all, good thing I haven’t checked my old photos yet 🙂 I can use that emotion (in seeing them) to write for future purposes. I definitely agree with what you said “always be blogging but not always posting”. there are still a lot of work needed to be done besides posting, there’s promotion stuffs of course.

    Nice FB like 🙂 by the way, I followed you on twitter few days ago.

    Regards,
    Jason

      Hi Jason.

      Thanks, I followed ya back on twitter too. 😉

      Glad I added the facebook like thing, it will help in getting spread across facebooks via my friends and others who I don’t know… 😉 the only downside to it is not being able to see ALL of the people who liked it, that would be a good stat to know.

      Maybe they will sort it out sometime along the line. 😀

      Thanks for the comment, no idea why but yours went to the spam folder, may wanna get over to askimet and sort that out, but on here you should be ok now. 😉

        Thanks Rob 🙂 I may have to use a different email from now on. I do feel that some arrogant kid blogger marked my remarks as spam (in akismet) while on a debate. I appreciate that you believe that I don’t give/share bs around here 🙂 Touching LOL.

        By the way, that would be great if it was possible to track who’s pressing those fb like buttons. I think it’s only possible to be tracked if you are friends with them, since it shows on the facebook’s homepage.

        Regards,

          Looks like you will, this comment you just did needed approving, which is daft, after you already posted one here and obviously that means I approve… 😆

          Best get onto askimet too though, nothing to lose, all to gain. 🙂

          I agree, it would be good to have some sort of idea who is “liking” things… it’s just daft not having any stats, or even just knowing who they are.
