Typing classes in my school were taught using these old Royal or Remington typewriters and yet we still communicated with the world. We got jobs, found mates, had children and even educated them. We went through college doing our papers on those old things, but today we have computers and what is more we have blogs. Ah, yes, blogs.
The calendar is something I am not quite ready to set up because so many ideas for the future of this blog are circling in my brain right now. This has been my first experience with community classes, with Blogging 101 being more like a University class for me. The assignments have been difficult but not without hope to master them, and the wonderful commons area gave us all the classroom feeling with its give-and-take for all the topics. Our mentors were helpful and complimentary—very directive too. I have a storehouse of ideas and links to browse later.
Do you find it difficult to imagine that newbie bloggers have actually created these beautiful blogs? I knew I was a novice at blogging, but I am not actually a newbie. Yet, comparing my work with theirs is very humbling. Per the assignment, I have spent the day going back and forth to read from various blogs and commenting on new fun posts. I have really grown to appreciate so many for diverse reasons.
One of the most fascinating photo blogs I have ever seen is http://yonaphoto.com. I hope this researcher knows how many times I go back to read and just drool over the fantastic photography.
And though Diana is not new to blogging, she is my mentor. Just check one example and you might follow her too (http://holisticwayfarer.com/?s=I+would+gather+words).
I can’t seem to say farewell without mentioning a few others.
I like the full photo header in http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/10/06/community-pool-84/ and the option of going there for help. What a comfort to know there will be someone who is sympathetic to questions we ask.
What is my plan? Hang around and see if the rubber hits the road.
