Second weekend with this blog in place. Still learning the ropes, particularly with my About page placement and tagline. Other than that, I’m pretty satisfied with my experience so far. Things will likely be tweaked as my information pool grows, naturally.
First few posts were tests, iffy but they got me started (https://animatedroseblog.wordpress.com/2016/01/14/test-post-numero-uno/ and https://animatedroseblog.wordpress.com/2016/01/15/test-post-2/ ). You got to learn a bit about me while I flailed and struggled to adapt to this new portion of internet life. I’m still flailing and struggling, don’t get me wrong, but not as much as I was last week. Having a Twitter doesn’t help (still have to remember to use that thing).
In my efforts to find topics to talk about in my daily posts (dates on this thing are messed up, I noticed), I’ve babbled about many things that most may find pointless. I’ve complained about the weather, talked about what colors my mom has dyed my hair with lately, and questioned the positioning of knives in a drying rack at my house. Again, rather pointless things but they’re my things. Nobody said everything I had to post had to be entertaining…
I’ve done class stuff for assignments, naturally. I actually had to do research! Spooky, right? Just kidding.
I’ve referred to the Missing Manual a lot to figure some things out. That thing is my current lifeline here. Without it, I’d likely be totally lost. I’m so glad that thing is free online. Phew!
Still scrabbling for topics but I’ve got one thing I’ll be okay talking about–my original story ideas. That will probably be a big topic among the many boring things I decide to post about daily, because writing is a big part of my life.
Overall, I still have a lot to learn about this blogging thing. I’m willing to keep learning because this seems interesting and fun. We’ll see what happens with it in the future.
