It wasn’t that difficult, was it?

writing tipsIt’s always gratifying to hear when other bloggers have come out of being underground and started blogging again.

One example was a writer who knew she really ought to start up again, but had lost the desire along with the verve and excitement she once had. She had a blog ready and waiting, just that it was bare (like Old Mother Hubbard’s cupboard) and unloved and desperately needed something to fill it.

But it was my blogathon that started her off again (or so she says) – the fact that I’m forcing myself to post every day for a year inspired her to try to write just one. And so she did…

And it wasn’t as bad as she thought it was going to be. I’ve just received an excited and exhilarated email exploding onto my screen with her elation, so I had to go in and take a look.

It was an excellent post. She had taken on board my advice about just letting her fingers do the talking, pouring out her conversation through the keyboard, allowing herself to express what she wanted in a natural and free-flowing form. The result was easy and quick to read, I immediately understood the topic and really wanted to finish it to find out what happened at the end. It certainly deserved a ‘like’ and a comment to help boost its ratings.

And of course it was accompanied by a first class photograph suitable enough to be the topping on the cake!

Now any other disgruntled or reluctant bloggers teetering on the edge of starting up again, why not give it a go. It certainly will create a release of endorphins that beats anything else – apart from going for a jolly good run in the snow.
