As an inveterate supporter of authors who pen "how to" books on writing, this made me laugh out loud. That's all the advice you really need in a nutshell. After you've actually written something, then you can worry about how sensible it is, how artistic, how insightful. I have a blog, obviously and as I said in a previous post, it is mostly to entertain me. However, I have to admit to checking the blog site frequently to see how my "stats" are for the week and the month. I don't really believe them but I do get a little charge when they go up. A suspicion that resides in the back of my mind is that NO ONE actually reads the blog and that the program makes random changes to the "stats" to keep you interested. After I share a post, sure enough, the numbers go up. Occasionally, I have comments from readers (you know who you are and o, thank you.) One post about my mother was read by her godchild who lives in northern England. I have never met this goddaughter but she remembered my mum well and it was a nice contact I would never have known about. (I likely did know but had forgotten.)
The above tip is the first of five . I stole the picture from a Grammarly blog post and the ideas made sense but being obstinate, I'll likely continue as I've begun- hit and miss. Chances are, I'm not in my (sigh) golden years going to become a world-famous blogger whose work is gathered into a best-selling book. (We all have our fantasies.) On the other hand it's kind of fun, I'm hoping it helps me stave off dementia and I intend to keep writing it.
I've been married a long time and often write about everyday events.
