I barely knew what a blog was when I first started blogging. I had no concept of what good content was and what may be uh, a little boring. So I stumbled through some awkward posts and tried to find my rhythm. For a while, I thought I had to say something, all the time, which led to some embarrassing fluff.
So in the spirit of sharing the bad with the good, here are a few of my more clueless and cringe-worthy posts, taken from my first year of blogging:
The Idiot: thought-provoking with an excellent plot – 8/20/13 – Not sure why I thought I could analyze a book by Dostoyevsky in 262 words or why I didn’t mention the author in my post title. I wonder if Dostoyevsky would be pleased that I thought he was good at plots?
I’m looking for answers! – 1/27/14 – If you dare click on this one, shield your eyes from some very large type. I think I was looking for attention, not answers!
How to make “Dirt” for 30 hungry lacrosse players – 3/25/14 – I don’t remember thinking I would turn my blog into a recipe how-to, but here it is. Fortunately it was a one and done. The recipe’s a good one though!
I often think about removing these posts, but looking back on them reminds me that for all bloggers, finding your way in the blogging world is a gradual process and it never stops. Your blog is always evolving, so go with that flow, move on from the less popular posts and trust your new ideas!
Thanks for visiting – come back soon!
