One of my worst blogging habits (and something I aim to improve next year, after all 2015 was about productivity!) is not reading enough of other’s work or leaving comments and likes. I’m a terrible blogger.
To rectify that I’ve been reading some of the posts from the last few days and picked out a few on my reader list that I really think are great (not that if you are not here you are not great, this is why I hate including blogs here because of the amazing ones I have to miss out.)
In no particular order, a couple of posts you may have missed today:
The Overkill of a Golden Oldie – Chronicles of an Anglo Swiss
After many golden oldie years of cyber warfare armed with my keyboard and various mouse developments, I have realised that I have to adapt, because you never know what is coming next.
It’s nice to have someone with my same technological outlook, rather than shouting and getting angry because Facebook has changed the way your NewsFeed works just accept the change and work with it. AngloSwiss is also one of my most prolific commentees so I think she deserves a shout-out!
Ode to Nursery Rhymes – Kathy’s Blog
Today’s prompt for Writing 101: Poetry is Fallacy. The prompt says “Today, let’s write poems that are wholly illogical.” To me the nursery rhymes I know by heart are illogical, although cute and funny.
One of my big aims for 2015 was to write more so I think anyone who is tackling the WordPress writing challenges deserves some encouragement! Plus with my own two year old I am starting to run out of nursery rhymes I remember.
My first one star review – AnaSpoke
I’m feeling pretty philosophical about it – I guess you can’t expect everyone to love a book, any book, it’s a matter of personal preference. Wish I could make sense of it, though – the main complaint from someone who loves screwball comedy seems to be that it’s “improbable” and has “too many screwballs”.
As someone who lives with an aspiring writer I know the fear that comes with publishing your work. For all those that enjoy your book there will be those that just don’t like it. As a writer you have to learn to cope with rejection (because as any author will tell you there will be plenty) but I do admire and respect all those that put themselves out there.
Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved in the past week, and tell us why they’re worth reading.
