Here’s a thing ………
A few months ago, a blogger said they couldn’t share another blogger’s post to their blog because it would make their blog look messy. I couldn’t figure it at the time, l figured well why not share another person’s work, is that not a communicable thing to do?
Two weeks ago, someone said that they found my own blog messy because l didn’t write on just one thing, that l shared others posts and my site was all over the place, and they then asked did l NOT think my blog looked messy?
Well two weeks ago, l was also in the process of tidying up my navigation, l wanted things to be somewhat smoother. I am still learning about WP and blogging as l go along and happy with the process of the learning curve itself.
I don’t know how other bloggers read blog posts? For me, l rarely use the ‘reader’, l have moments in my day and l think, ‘Oh l know, let’s see what so and so is doing?’ Then l will read perhaps half a dozen posts of that person and like what l like, and then l perform that a few times a day. But l read from their actual blog. I think that is what everyone does isn’t it?
I don’t write on just one topic and l do openly admit that l write in a frenetic fashion, because that is how my own mind works. I might write on environmental as easily one day as l might write on mental health, or like now a topical question in miscellaneous, or a Dear Blog episode. I might choose to write some new poetry or reblog existing poetry, or l might write a new tale or story. I like to have a lot of mental stimulation so will sit back and think what l would like to see on a blog and set about doing something similiar or new. I love music and films and l love reading. I like to be entertained and stimulated by a mixture of all three and think nothing of the goofy stuff, or the challenges l set or the jokes ot the riddles or the greetings both nightly and morning – it is just my way of saying hello to everyone.
So l find it really hard to only concentrate on one solid subject – however maybe my blog is messy, l don’t know – it’s not messy to me, it makes perfect sense to me.
However to a comment l received today and when you read this – you will know l mean you and my hearty thanks to you for the compliment .. “I pray nothing happens to you that would take you away from WP. Your light hearted mess would be missed!” Well that means a great deal to me, because that is exactly what my blog is about ‘a light hearted mess,’ so again my thanks, because that makes my day wholesome.
………….. and another thing!
Does anyone know how to manage our favourite bloggers? Is there some secret to it that l am missing? Is it some kind of App? I ask, because sometimes [and this is not a dig, just a landmark comparison] some bloggers will like 10/12 posts all at once when they log on – as to whether they read those who knows, maybe they do, and maybe they don’t – it doesn’t matter. What does matter is how do they do it?
I mean is it because l am in a favourited list or something and they all just show up at once? Because l would like to see all my favourite bloggers in one area that helps me visit my faves daily instead of me just relying upon my memory and raising questions of ‘Oh l wonder, what they have done?’ Then seek them out.
Do y’all know what l mean? How do l manage my favourite bloggers please?
