Yesterday I read this post by Meghan, about where dreams and reality collide,
and this morning while I was driving around I thought a bit about it.
Here's what I would say to anyone who whats to blog...
1. Make writing a habit. Make it part of your everyday life. Schedule it into your routine.
Aim to do it every day, then it will happen 3-4 times a week.
I write my post mostly after after dinner,
but the words are already in my head when I sit down to write.
2. Be real. Write in real time - right here, right now.
Don't try and be someone you are not.
Don't whinge, but package reality with grace and hope.
3. Don't be afraid to change what you write about,
just because it's how you did it, doesn't mean you have to keep doing that.
Allow yourself room to grow and change.
4. Reality doesn't mean you can't follow your dreams.
Reality is still doing what you love despite the circumstances.
Reality is the best writing comes from the hard times.
If you can blog through these busy busy times,
if you can find words to make sense of your world as you are living it,
you will be writing a blog that is interesting for people to read.
Well that's what I think anyhow!!
What do you think??
