Learning to blog

book coverToday I have learned about blogging, something I never thought I would do.  But then I didn’t think I would ever use a mobile phone to text. Now I sit happily in bed at night texting flat out. I have found friends and family find it more convenient and I get quite a surprise when I find out how many texts I have sent each month.

I ask myself if it will be the same with blogging. I wonder if in the night I will be suddenly inspired and instead of just writing in my head I will leap out of bed, go directly to my laptop and start writing my blog.

Time will tell…..I hope that some of my blogs might be of interest and not just some rant.  Certainly a lot to be said about saving the draft and perusing the next morning!

I found a book about blogging called Creative blogging that looked useful however it is an e-book which is a whole other story!

Just one question where did the word blog come from?

    weB LOG!
    It’s a great hobby and I hope you enjoy it. It’s time consuming but a wonderful way to record feelings and ideas and to communicate with others.

    Congratulations; blogging is such fun. A blog is a web-log as I understand it, later shortened to blog. The book sounds worth looking at; I’ll check it out at my library; thanks.

      Thanks Gallivanta,
      I fully expect I will be doing exactly that. Trouble is if I leave it to the morning to record I don’t have very good recall! So notes or up in the night it shall be!
      cheers

    No leaping out of bed for me, but I do head blogs at 2am and then creak out of bed in the morning and dash the whole thing off!

    Hi Ruby2shoes
    I might have to join the queue for that book. I don’t leap out of bed at 2am and whip up a blog either. I think blog in the wee small hours, then roll over and go back to sleep. In the mornings I wonder “Now what was that great blog idea I had?”

      Hi Valerie
      I will have to keep my notebook on my bedside table me thinks, or leap out of bed… maybe time to buy a IPad; but then I might wake the great Johnny Rocket !! My recall in the morning is not that great. lol
      cheers
