How did you get into blogging?
I started to compile my poems together from notebook to computer years ago, on a poetry site (poetrypoem,.com), but then it felt outdated so I joined blogger.com. I started my first blog “My Tug of War” and posted all kinds of random stuff. Outings with my mom, (anecdotes) spa outings with my friends ( hilarious) and poems. I got a good following there but then I became a victim of identity theft and some fucker literally took my identity, changed my address, used my gmail….you heard the drill before I’m sure. Anyhoot, I got so angry I deleted everything, my blog my emails…lost all my data. Felt good though. Erased. Deleted parts of me and started fresh.
then I found wordpress. Gave it a try and loved it. Half the time I don’t really know what I’m doing. I have to go on those youtube guides to add a category I’m so bad. Blogging gets my words out instead of being stuck in a tiny notebook in my red chest. I feel better and breathe easier when I blog.
What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?
Talk to an expert! The only thing I tell my writer friends is “write even when you have nothing to say” for blogging though you should basically have plenty to say. The best thing to do is follow your gut and be unique. I tend to not listen to advice anyway. And take long breaks. Log off. Read Rumi.
What would be your dream campaign?
My dream campaign would be to stop working, and devote my life to promote the Arts, Music and Literature. When I teach my pre-k class art about Fine Arts or read Neruda to my kids it’s the best feeling in the world because I feel as if I am actually passing down this knowledge and love I have. It’s not easy to get through to kids these days, and promote the arts let alone literature. This question has me baffled a bit.
Do you have a plan for your blog?
No plans. I just write. Not sure how to even know how to navigate. Changing my picture is quite the event for me. I wish I knew more of how to promote myself like some other professionals, but I’m an amateur and I tend to not think in long term projections. I’d probably need some professional help to come in and revamp my look to get more subscribers but there never seems to be enough time to even write lately. My plan for my blog would be to eventually organize it better. In my eyes, it sucks. I’m my own worst critic.
What do you think about ranking?
I think it’s overrated.
I need whiskey now.
