While I understand that this saying is meant to be about life in general, I love it for the blog. I know that I have never been able to write every single day on the blog, it comes and goes at times, sometimes flooding, with more than one post per day, other times, very steady.. one post a day for a month, and at other times, it slows down due to time demands.
the desire to write, to share, it’s always there.. even when I do not get word on the paper, er blog, I runs in my head.. My hubby is by far the better writer, and I do not just mean a better writer because he gets published.. (by the way, he has a new short story in the coming in Superhero Universe: Tesseracts Nineteen Available for pre-order) but because he follows all the rules, and his spelling and grammar is outstanding..
Me.. not so much, in fact I am just going to come out and say.. thank you for those that stick around, because I know that you must at times read some things I put out and go huh.
I often despite reading my first writing, will fill in the blanks in my head on what is missing on the writing.. I truly feel for those that get the posts by email, that means you get the very first version, at least those that read from the blog a day later, gets the first edit round from me as I can then see some of my mistakes.. those that read popular back posts have the best chance at a well done post as at times I have can edit two to five times as I go back and read something and correct it yet again.
So here is my request to you.. If something is not clear, and the subject interests you, if you have a moment, pop me a note in the comments and I will do my best to answer and clear up the area that is poorly worded or explain it more 🙂
The other thing I wanted to touch on was what is the blog about.. when I started 5 years ago, it was ok to jump all over the place but the blog world has become much more tailored.. and I have not and do not expect to follow on that path..
So what does hold the blog together.. the farm of course..
The farm is the very heart of the Blog, be it the land, the critters, the plants, the season’s themselves all play a part.. If you join the blog at a certain time of the year, when its heavy on recipes or gardening or ?? it will shift with the seasons of the year.. it will flex and move when I take on small challenges, but it will always come back around to things that flow on the farm with the seasons.
I hope you will enjoy what gets put down on the pages in 2016, its exciting to think that at the end of the year that book will be full, where today its wide open!
Cheers to your wide open clean book, may you write an awesome story of your own in 2016!
