Blogging….. I find it uncomfortable. I don’t like it. It’s putting myself out there a little farther than I prefer. It feels a bit like talking politics or religion at the Thanksgiving dinner table while in the company of my in-laws. There is this underlying concern that I may offend someone with my opinion or perspective on a topic. To say that these assignments will stretch me is an understatement.
While researching what makes a good blog and how to write a successful blog, I came across a blog with some suggestions. It’s called the minimalist. (http://www.theminimalists.com/blog/) They give 20 different suggestions for writing a successful blog. Among many useful tips, they suggest to be transparent, honest, and to find your voice. I can work on all three of these areas. Who knows maybe it will become second nature. At least I can feel confident that I will have 15 followers. I look forward to hearing from you Stockton cohort. Let the blogging begin!
