What is blogging like? What do I do every day? If I could describe blogging, I would say that it is like throwing your fishing pole into the ocean and waiting. You’re going to be constantly waiting. And this waiting process is the best part. You never know what’s going to happen. The excitement is always there, but your waiting time is there too.
I try to blog every day and it is difficult to do. I don’t always have a catchy blog post idea in my mind. And sometimes, I find myself not writing anything that day. I think it’s better to wait until a good idea comes along.
When I do have a good idea, I start writing. And I write furiously because I don’t want to lose my creative thought. The writing process takes about 20 minutes to 1 hour of writing. Whew… that’s a long time. And it is. I also go through and add additional information if needed. Pictures and miscellaneous items are added last. The last thing I do is proofread. If the post is 1000+ words, I still proofread every single word.
I never thought I would become a writer. My life is unconventional in some ways because I’ve been working on my own hours for about five years now. And I love it. I think that’s why blogging came naturally for me. Working at a desk for eight to nine hours straight would be like a prison for me. I need to be able to work freely on my own time. And that’s why blogging is so fun for me. I can blog anywhere and anytime I want. I’m thankful that I’ve found blogging and that God has brought this into my life. I’m also thankful that he has put me on this path.
