I’ve been getting some pretty helpful links/emails from wordpress about proper blogging/stages on improving your blog which I found pretty interesting. They definitely have their help guides down to a science. There was one thing that was annoying me like crazy when I did my last post yesterday, which was not being able to put spaces into my paragraphs without the text turning small. It really annoyed the crap out of me, but luckily it’s not happening again at the moment, so maybe it was just a glitch. I’m still learning the features of this interface, but I didn’t realize you could actually edit the html yourself, so my HTML/CSS class was put to decent use.
Anyhow, I took some thought into what wordpress recommended to develop your blog, which was to keep to a theme/topics (like books/technology), to specialize on a subject and keep it at that. I think that’s something that might intrigue me down the road, and I got kind of carried away with the idea of doing that for my writing now, and had to scale back to why I wanted to write in the first place, which was to just have an outlet, and not to appease any future readers. Hypothetically, if I’d group together all of my hobbies together and make a blog name to tie them together somehow, along with school/self help relating things, and introspective one in general. Sounds time consuming, the worst part is that’s how immersed I can get into a task and i’m planning way ahead of time when I should be focusing on the task at hand.
As for my goal for this blog(even though it’s more like a diary with easier to read text than my handwriting), one of my reasons is to see if i can keep at something consistently, which has been my downfall for most of my life. I usually get into intense spurts of concentrated effort towards whatever interest i’d be into and then leave it for some other subject. I’ve been pretty helpless to my ways, and it’s something I’ve always had to battle, but lately I’ve been winning my share of the struggle.
I’m hoping with this long, long journey ahead that i’ll be able to extract some ideas to put towards a more clearer website. (full disclosure, I just wanted to pass out, but barely opened my eyes enough to type this out, so exhausted from lugging my lard in basketball)
I’ll be pretty stoked if i can keep this up for a week or two without flubbing. In the mean time, bed I go.
