Spring! is almost here and with it comes so many ways in which we unfurl our winter coats, shake the grey skies from our souls and listen more to our earth and the brown in our gardens calling to be greened.
the best blogging bootcamp advice for beginners is...
...follow your heart, follow your soul, let who you are guide you.
Know the blogs you love, and know the blogs you don't like...try NOT to emulate any of them. just Be.Your.Self.
listen to small things.
Sometimes you need to just close your eyes & step away from the screen.
Remember to laugh as often as you can...sometimes this is all very silly & not so serious.
Be prepared, be more organized, learn how to swim. even then, nothing prepares you for tornadoes and earthquakes...you just have to blog through them.
it will excuse you from having to stare at the screen for inspiration.
if you mess up, don't get the wording right, or blunder a post, remember to apologize(mostly to yourself), take note, then let it go.
Read. Read often and evermore. However, don't let the only thing you read be blogs. Really. You will start to sound like one when you talk.
Disregard the trolls out there. but remember the kinfolk, always remember the kinfolk.
so remember to organize, edit & create ...but also to live as much as you can and LOVE a whole lot. This goes for life in general, not just blogging.
happiest of monday thoughts to all.
