savedinddrafts raised some interesting questions in her post http://savedindrafts.wordpress.com/2013/01/09/getting-to-grips-with-this-blogging-malarkey/ so here´s what I think, feel free to assist, too 🙂
THE READER: well, I´ve been blogging for some time and I´m still not quite sure why some post seem to “disappear” out of my sight but what I have noticed is that once I follow a blog, I go onto “blogs I follow”, “edit list” and then click on “get new post by e-mail” – instantly. Sometimes it is already on this setting, sometimes, like with savedindrafts just now, it was set to never, God only knows why 😉
YOUR BLOG: my family does not know that I blog or should I say, they probably pretend not to know since I have merely omitted to tell them that I have my own blog, they see me reading other blogs all the time. So, posting a blog is difficult sometimes, like savedindrafts I blog the whole time – in my head – actually writing a blog post can take up to 3 or 4 attempts with interruptions of a few days in between but I would love to have the time and sometimes the guts to post more and more honestly (although, I must admit I am getting bolder and bolder, God only knows what happens if people find out who I am 😉
AWARDS: oh, is there such as thing as nominations for blogs with less than 200 followers only – oops- who cares, I have nominated the blogs I like to read and the ones I interact with. I have, however, tried to nominated each blog for one award at a time only, as it took me 3 days to complete https://crazybunny66.wordpress.com/2013/01/08/and-the-nominees-are/ and it was quite a bit of work to inform all of you about the nominations afterwards. Personally, I think these awards are a lovely idea and I for one enjoy looking at other blogs which have been nominated so it is a nice way of coming across new and interesting blogs. But for obvious reasons I would not want to have to go through all the work multiple times a week 😉
GUEST BLOGS: never tried it, are there rules and if so, which ones?
REBLOGGING: I do it sometimes, like with this post https://crazybunny66.wordpress.com/2013/01/02/1201/ which, incidentally, is http://savedindrafts.wordpress.com/ post again, I seem to be coming back to you all the time at the moment 🙂 I reblogged it because I thought it was absolutely hilarious, so funny, everyone should get to read and enjoy it but the credit is obviously yours, hence the reblogging.
FRESHLY PRESSED: no idea – anyone have any input on this?
PHOTO CREDITS: I do this most of the time, although I have been known to forget but this is a tricky subject, the pictures are not ours so we have to give credit to the rightful owners – if you don´t and you come across a
tw….. not so nice person then you´ve had it 😉 .
WORDPRESS APP: I beg to differ 🙂 are we talking about the iPhone app here?? I just love it!
Right, there you go, that´s my take on things, what´s yours?
