There is no way I am in a position to give blogging tips (I use my phone to blog and have often written posts upside down for the love of Pete!) but there are certain things I have noticed about blogging and WordPress since I began nearly a year ago. Things that have made me happy, sad, irritated, confused, amused, emotional…basically, all the feelings a woman experiences in a ten minute time frame.
I decided to compile a list of the most obvious things I’ve noticed about this wonderful blogging world of ours:
1. WordPress is a really nice place
I have never met anyone here who has been unkind to me. I have never received a nasty comment either…which is a shame in a way because I have some killer comebacks.
“I’m sorry, I can’t hear you over all my awesomeness.”
“You’re pretty arrogant for someone whose wearing a tutu. At least, in my imagination you’re wearing one.”
2. Some of you guys are reeeeally talented
Did I say some? Because I meant all. *Backs slowly out of room*
But really, some of you guys are so talented that I get really intimidated, panic and then post pictures of owls.
Luckily, this owl thinks I’m *hilaaarious*
3. Sometimes people magically like my posts without actually reading them
Because my posts are JUST THAT AMAZING! You don’t even have to read them. You just know.
I could actually write the word “badger” over and over here and I bet I would still get likes.
I know most of you do read my posts (right, RIGHT?) so I’ll continue.
Hey, ever notice badgers look like a mixture of a dog and a pig? I’m cool, I swear.
4. It gets hard to keep up with everyone’s blogs…
…but you guys are worth it. Especially you. And on a completely unrelated side note, here’s a picture of Kurt Cobain dressed as a cheerleader because…why not?
5. You can get alone just fine with someone whose opinions you don’t entirely agree with
Firstly, I’m not going to tell you how long it took me to spell opinions correctly there. Let’s just say, I was so
off that even autocorrect didn’t know what the heck I was saying….
Anyway, I have a lot of followers/people I follow whose opinions on certain topics don’t necessarily correlate with my own (oh sure brain, you can spell correlate but not opinion?) and I still get on fine and dandy with them. Why? Because if you’re fundamentally a good person, with an open mind, I will be your friend. Especially if you like owls (this is getting owl of hand…har har har).
On a completely unrelated note, this:
6. It’s probably not advisable to get hammered and get post happy
…not that I’d know *awkward face*
7. Accidentally deleting a draft is the most infuriating thing ever
I can’t even talk about this, let’s just say:
8. Getting a new follower feels like:
Er, I mean (be cool Jane…) it’s more like…
Who am I kidding? It’s the first one. I love you guys.
9. Sometimes comments go to spam which means I don’t reply
This makes me sad.
Okay, so this picture is totally not appropriate for what I’m trying to say but…Ryan Gosling
10. Your comments are my favourite thing in the world and make me feel like…
Wait, your comments make me feel like I’ve just participated in a laborious yet ingenious prison break after I’ve been falsely accused of my wife and her lover’s murder and I’m standing topless in the rain?
What have you noticed about blogging since you began?
