10 Things Thursday
10 things I know and don’t know about blogging
I’m really new at this blogging thing. I started, really, back in May. I’ve learned a lot, need to learn a whole lot more, and still I know so little. About every other day I will read the web, blogs, web sites, anything to help me learn. I read until I get overwhelmed. That takes about ten minutes. Occasionally I might try something. Mostly I don’t.
So, here’s some of what I know and don’t know.
1. I know I really like having a blog. I like to write and I like to examine things that run through my head; makes it less scary in there.
2. I don’t know what “blog-rolling” is. Do you?
3. I don’t know how some bloggers keep up with their contests and their daily or weekly themes. I try to do “wordless Wednesday” and one day I posted on a Tuesday and yesterday I got so excited about my blueberry parfait that I forgot it was Wednesday.
4. I know that blogging has brought out the photographer in me. Photography is always something I have loved to do but my mind wasn’t in gear with it. Now it is. I find myself always grabbing my camera for something. I never take one or two shots; I always take 20 or 30. You gotta love digital!
5. I know that Shabby Blogs and Cutest Blog on the Block have the best backgrounds and stuff. Love them!
6. I don’t know how an RSS feed works or why you want it. I’ve tried subscribing to other blogs and the feed goes to my Yahoo page and never updates so I then I delete it.
7. I know if my readers looked at my live traffic feed they would probably think I am constantly checking my blog. Well, sometimes I am and sometimes I’m using my “Blogs I follow” list to click through. Update ~ I figured out that I can ignore myself. So now it doesn't look like I have a stalker from Guthrie.
8. I know that I have read some really good blogs and that I am getting to know some really neat people that I would have never known exisited.
9. I don’t know how in the world I will find time to manage two blogs once school starts. But I will…because I have come to really like it.
10. Shoot….I don’t know if I am doing any of this blogging thing right at all!
Oh well! Have a great day!
