When I decided to start this project, I decided to treat it just like a job. To get up, get dressed, and spend a specific amount of time to my creative writing.
That was good for the first day.
I would have fired me by now, if I wasn’t my employer.
My second day had little value, as I wallowed in self-pity when a fellow blogger spurned my efforts to value her work. I realize I should not have taken it personal, but who of us is perfect aside from Christ Jesus?
Having a bipolar condition, I have to watch out for grandiosity of my beliefs and actions. I am still determined to do something towards this blog everyday, with a couple of days off like regular employment. So today I read the articles from WordPress that help beginning bloggers.
I still do not understand a lot of the technical jargon. I want to find out how to create the links, and to use the shortcut provided to “embed” a video I find interesting, like the showcased blogs I read today.
A video from a featured blog “I Love Typography” had me mesmerized. It was of a man creating beautiful fonts on canvas. I am having trouble finding it again. If I understood the direction, you would be able to see that same video.
Since I am my boss, I know my heart, and intend to “keep me on” as it is my heart to learn how to do better. It will be neat to look back on my chronicling my progress, to see how fast I can get to the place where my blog looks good, and reads well like those that are more professional with their work.
At least I have found the spell check.
