Donna put it so well when she said that blogging is a "creative outlet." Just like playing music is a creative outlet for the musician and picking up the paintbrush is a creative outlet for the painter, so it is with blogging for the writer.
It is also an opportunity to share what we feel and share what we think, through this creative outlet.
A popular tweet by Janel, talking about finding that "slant" for the article, and publishing it before someone else does! So true, Janel!
As Da Vinci pointed out, it is pretty clear that one of the issues that bloggers face is time and time management. That is also something that will be covered in The Blog Workshop, as well as many of the other topics mentioned in today's twitter chat. (Check out the slideshow, above, to see the full chat).
Gotta love Lydia's reference to, "If you write it, they will come" and her suggestion that bloggers be true to themselves. Good advice, Lydia.
And, as Juan points out, "Don't Give Up!" Can't tell you the number of times that I have seen people give up right when they are on the verge of success. Keep on keepin' on!
There are many things to learn, from the basics of blogging to the technical aspect of blogging, as Curls and Mo pointed out in discussion.
There are so many things that we wish we could have, would have, might have done, from domain names, to blog designs, to promotions... The nice thing, with the internet, is that it isn't set in stone and it isn't too late to learn better ways of doing things. The Blog Workshop is a great place to go to find it all-in-one-place.
In closing, two great tweets of encouragement. Lydia encouraging us that we keep believing in ourselves and eventually others will "get it," too, and Donna summing it up with the simplicity of attracting people and then you got it baby. Hey all, you got my attention! Must be working :)
