So, I have been working on some blog research for the past few days and plan to continue doing so. I have discovered a lot of great tips and advice on how to create and keep an enticing blog. I plan to put a lot of these into practice in the next following weeks.
One of the things I have to find out though, which I will ask a person whose blog I encountered, is when I read something I find interesting in a person’s blog and decide to mention it in my own I will obviously credit and link to the post/blog, but do I need to ask permission of the blog owner every time to credit them or can I just credit them and that will suffice? Big question of the week.
Part of my research includes how to structure my blog. There are plenty of things I would love to write about and I don’t plan on limiting myself to one subject, but I do want to have some sort of format that will designate – most of the time anyways- when I discuss a certain subject or not. All of this and more is in the works as I work towards my goal of a consistent and enjoyable blog. I’m also dealing with other things such as life: hubby, family & friends, school, my jobs, little side projects here and there and most importantly trying to become a better Christian by making God a priority in my life. Little by little I’m figuring out there are some things way more important than others in life. As I write this I’m thinking about how I should be working on an essay (I’m helping a friend with tweaking it), but then when I start to think about all the things I should be doing, I would never to get to what I want to and love doing.
And this is an important point:
There needs to be a balance between what you need to do and what you want to do.
For if you do too much of one or the other you may reach a stand still, a place where you are not necessarily going back, but neither are you advancing – and this is never a good thing.
So make a mental or physical list of what you should be and want to be doing and figure out what comes first, next, and so on.
Until the next post of blog discovery!
