It’s funny this morning, as I sat on a commuter train into work, I said to myself, its time to up the ante for my blog. I need new material, something inspiring, more informative, an opinion perhaps, thoughts on world news and more to capture a new level of followers. I mean don’t get me wrong, my blog was originally intended to practice writing, develop the creative aspect of my inner being, since I’ve always been in the corporate world – career wise – I had lost my ability to write creatively. The funny thing is, my English teachers throughout my schooling, have always suggested I pursue writing, always giving me high marks on all my written material, encouraging me. I shrugged it off at the time, as a young student who had no idea what she wanted to do in life – actually that’s a lie – I knew what I really wanted to do, but never pursued it for one reason and another and another.
Fast forward to the early 21st century and blogging was introduced and I was one of the first to sign up for the craze, through blogger.com first and then WordPress and I haven’t stopped since – that was eight years ago. So, back to this morning, when I considered changing up the blog, perhaps shying away from all the fashion and glamour and focusing more on philosophy, analysis, and more serious insights and then I received a congratulatory notice from WordPress – reminding me how solid my blog was and how my ‘stats were booming’ – making me smile. I guess I am on the right track – although on occasion I will add some thoughts on deeper subjects.
What say you?
