For me weekends are, and always have been, about catching up. Whether it was homework during my school career, catching up with friends and family or, like today, with assignments. As a part of Blogging University’s ‘Blogging 101’ course I have already written about why I blog, changed my blog title and added a tagline, yet, after only one week, I am terribly behind. Luckily, weekends are off and allow us busy blogging newbies to go back and see what we missed out.
Let’s see. I left out Friday’s “Love Your Theme”, but I’ve been through the process of the preview binge when I started the blog back in October and feel no need to repeat this experience. Why change something that works perfectly well for me?
So, next. Oh, I missed out on Thursday’s assignment, too.This is an interesting one: “Write To Your Dream Reader” (and include a new-to-you element, don’t like this part…). So, here we go.
You, my dear reader, probably know yourself best. You have your own opinions and convictions, but you love to learn about other people’s views. After all, isn’t it fascinating how different and yet similar all or our lives are? You’ve found yourself relate to someone with a life If you are part of Blogging 101, you are most likely familiar with the sensation of marveling at how diverse the blogs of participants are – from heavy metal aficionados to fiction-writing housewives. But what most impresses you is the amount of passion that each devotes to their life. You probably have your own blog or are toying with the idea, admit it. You have something to say, anything, and you like a good challenge (especially if it involves ticking things off a list!!).
But most importantly, you have an everyday life that has its unrecognized pit-falls and difficulties, difficulties that are rarely talked about and seem trivial but actually have quite an impact. And you know that the pleasure is in the little things – the two minutes that you stay in bed longer than you should and the teaspoon of honey that you add to your tea.
Ideally, of course, you enjoy reading this blog.
