Back to blogging

If there’s one thing I deal with on a mammoth scale, it’s words. So I’ve been tempted back to blogging.

Let’s see if I can keep this up and make better use of my words than I have before.

  1. Good to hear. I like reading determined-sounding posts like this.

    What’s the plan? What are you doing differently this time round?

    1. At work I’ve been learning about the backend of WordPress and search engines etc. I’ve been a little discouraged because I don’t have original content, only what I weave with my words, but I plan to take small steps by aggregating my favourites and making sure I publish more regularly.

  2. “I don’t have original content, only what I weave with my words…”

    Isn’t that what original content is? Your words are the absolute most original content you could make. 🙂

    How about setting yourself a challenge with them? Say, a 500-word post, twice a week, one of which is teaching something, one of which is giving your opinion on something you really care about?

    I can’t stand the whole “you have to publish x times a day in your blog” advice that’s so popular out there. In my experience, it’s nonsense. (This blog has only published once this year – – and it’s one of the most popular blogs on the internet.) But having some kind of publishing target is good for the brain, and you never feel the guilt of falling behind, if you’re following your plan and can see you’re on track.

    1. I got sidetracked into setting up my own website instead and including the blog as part of it.
      Plus I’m wary of writing my personal blog during working hours. I’m going to try and set some sort of schedule for each of the balls I juggle daily.
