Do you even blog, bro?
Once I made the decision that I wanted to take my writing to the next step, I created this site. I didn’t really know what I was doing so it began as a place to post my short stories and poetry. These were little writing experiments that were initially designed to jog my writing brain before I jumped back into my novels. You know little steps.
It has since grown into a bit of a blog. It now holds stories about my daily travails during my effort to become a serious writer (well… serious about writing anyway). Hence the name, Adventures in the Written Form. Be it fictional stories of adventure or my adventures in writing, the title covered the bill.
It has been an interesting journey. There have been times where I posted a few things a week to posting a couple things a month. I think the word I’m searching for is sporadic. While I have been studying the blogging process on and off, I have come to realize that I need a more in-depth understanding of the process.
So, thank goodness for Art of Blogging!
I’ve been following this blog for a long time now and it has always proven to be immensely helpful. He released an intro class into the very thing I have been looking to get better at. (It’s like he can read my mind or something).
I’m going to go through it all again because I know I missed some stuff the first go through. But the big question he posits is “Why do you want to blog?” It’s a good question and I’m still thinking about the answer, the real to my core answer.
I mean, I think I know why I’m doing this but maybe that surface answer is wrong or incomplete. Maybe there’s more to it than I thought, maybe it’s staring me right in the face. Maybe you guys know why.
If you do, let me in on the secret.
