Chris sometimes wonders what I DO all day while I am at home by myself…not in school, not working.
It doesn’t sound very *productive* to say I was blogging. The thing is that I put a lot of research and reading into some of my blogs. There is finding statistics and, what I consider to be, relevant or important information regarding the topic.
Sometimes I have to find appropriate pictures, or take pictures (sometimes a LOT of pictures because I am not that great of a photographer). Then I have to upload and organize them.
After that there is the actual writing part! I love to write. I hope you enjoy my writing. I tend to write like I speak, but sometimes a bit more formally than I speak, but Chris says he can definitely “hear” my voice as he reads the blogs. (No, I am not reading TO him.) But the writing part can sometimes be tricky.
What ususally happens is something inspires me, a quote or picture, or something we have done, or a recipe. Then I take that inspiration and I just sit down and start writing about it. Telling the story. Some people may think my posts are too long, but personally, I like to read blogs that have a bit of meat to them, and that is just how I write.
Once I get it all written I have to proofread it and preview it and make adjustments as needed. Now, this blog does NOT get proofread with a fine tooth comb. It is a personal blog. I do attempt to use proper spelling and grammar and punctuation, and I do review it for errors, but I am human and sometimes an error gets through. I hope you will all understand.
So, while it doesn’t *sound* productive, there is actually quite a bit that goes into getting my blog posts published. I love it. I am so happy I started doing this. I hope you all enjoy the little tidbits and slices of life I put out here. I love your comments and would be thrilled if you felt this blog was worthy of sharing with your friends or other bloggers. I did start a facebook page for this and my other blog, Inspire The Light, so you can find both of them and like them on facebook if you want.
Blogging is MY creative outlet. Some people do art, paint, sing, dance, or craft…but for me: writing is my THING.
So, blogging is one answer to what I do all day.
I also do stuff like this:
|Meal planning and recipe research, including grocery and meal plan lists!|
|Follow other blogs, and right now am working on a photo labeling and organizing project.|
This is, of course, in addition to all the really thrilling stuff like laundry, dishes, floors and generally keeping the house clean and picked up. I’ll tell you what though, if I did not have THIS furball, my house would stay much cleaner.
|Looks so innocent, doesn’t she?|
Plus I do stuff like bring the garbage cans back in, get the mail, and I actually do the grocery shopping. I run other errands and whatnot, too.
