Can I help inspire people in their blog writing? I’ve been mulling this over for a while, unable to make up my mind.
One of the things I love about blogging is that there aren’t any rules. It’s your space, to do what you like with. Hurrah! On the other hand, I’m aware that I have a lot of experience in publishing, have authored several books and am pleasantly surprised to find that I’ve been writing a sewing and knitting blog for five years now. Surely, I’ve learnt something in that time!
If you’re looking for a guide to such things as SEO, this probably won’t be the place for you. It’s good to be aware of Search Engine Optimisation, but I’m no expert. It’s also worth being reassured that I’m not a huge stickler for grammar. I come from the school of thought that language is a living, breathing animal and I’m all for enabling over ticking off. Apart from the obvious rules of check your spelling every now and then, I don’t care so much, as long as you entertain me.
If you are looking for essays on the importance of empathy, how a single word can make or break a blog post, ways to engage your readers, what to blog about when life is uber busy, general ramblings on the topic of blog writing … maybe I can write a few posts?
At its best, blog writing is the 21st century’s answer to the short story. It doesn’t take much to learn how to compose your own miniature narratives. All you need is a camera and a keyboard. Maybe the help of a friend?
Let me know what you think, and if there’s anything you’d particularly like me to cover.
