Going With The Flow

compact-computer-keyboard-clip-artThese days, I don’t even hurt my brain to think up of a subject to write about; I merely go with the flow; I write about what is on my mind (And, it is easier that way and it saves a lot of time too).

There is no need for me to succumb to my perfectionist tendencies to produce an award-winning post; I write from the heart.

Although brainstorming is good at times, it can literally give you a headache if you do it too often; which is another reason why I am always eager to go with the flow.

Do you go with the flow where blogging is concerned? Or, do you plan out everything?

Will They Ever Start Cracking Down On Bloggers?

Wow! There Are So Many Newcomers To WordPress!

wordpress.jpgMost of the times when I am browsing through WordPress, I would come across short articles from those people mentioning to the world that it is their first time on WordPress.

I have always wondered: how did they find out about WordPress? Did they hear about it from a friend? Or, did it show up in their search engine results?

I clearly remembered, many years ago, when I was searching for a place to blog for free, Google Blogger was the first option that was presented to me by the search engine and I ran with it (Oh, silly me. I had used Google to do the query and Google recommended the blog site that was under their wing).

WordPress  came to my attention later on when I noticed that my favourite spiritual blog at the time was on WordPress.

Anyway, I truly doubt that there are other blog sites out there that are as much fun as WordPress.

A few years ago, I too was a newcomer to WordPress and I was blown away by its sophistication and its friendly community; which was something that I had never really experienced over at Google Blogger (So, I have an idea as to how those newcomers feel).

One thing that I know is: that the majority of the newcomers are going to enjoy themselves on WordPress.

I Have Noticed A New Look In My WordPress Reader

wordpress.jpgYesterday evening, while I was perusing WordPress on my laptop, I noticed that there was a slight change of design of my WordPress Reader; what was on the right-hand side of the page, is now located on the left-hand side of the page; is this supposed to make a difference? Is this the best that the Happy Engineers can come up with?

I am fully aware that the Happy Engineers are always trying their best to make WordPress user-friendly and visually appealing.

What are your views on this? Do you like the change? Or, you couldn’t care much about the change?

Where Would You Prefer To Blog?

Do You Think That Your Blog Has Staying Power?

BlogSome people’s tastes in blogs can be quite tricky; one moment they like it and the other moment, they want nothing to do with it.

A lot of bloggers have chosen popular niches with the sole purpose of capturing readers (Now, although this works, it is not mandatory to fall within a popular niche in order to acquire a ton load of views; take myself for example; I haven’t chosen a niche and I have a large traffic flow to my blog on a regular basis).

I genuinely believe that once people like what you have to offer, they will definitely come back for more; which adds to that Staying Power.

Also, I recommend that your blog always reflects your personality; that way, your viewers would know what type of person they are dealing with.

Great content is also an important factor (And, once you are known for churning out great content, there is a strong chance of your blog surviving the proverbial test of time).

And, the most important factor of all: always treat your fellow bloggers with respect. It would be an unwise move to insult them via the comments section of your blog (or, their blog); the last thing that you want to do is to create a sour note where Human Relations is concerned, because that would be utter suicide in the blogosphere.

Once you have made up your mind to do your best pertaining to blogging (and to LOVE what you do and the people within the blogging community), there is a great chance that your blog is going to have that magical Staying Power — the kind of longevity that would have some bloggers rather envious of you.

How To Survive The Writer’s Block

Hello and welcome to another post on TechnoTom!

Today, I’m going to be talking about the Writer’s Block, which is something that all bloggers suffer from (unfortunately). In fact, I’m suffering from it as I write this post!

I mean, all of us bloggers have suffered from Writer’s Block in sometime of our blogging life. And that’s why I’m here writing this post today.

I have decided that I’m going to write this post to go through the common causes of the dreaded writer’s block. At the end, I’m going to give you some tips on avoiding suffering from this feared condition.

According to Wikipedia, the Writer’s Block is mainly caused by a lack of inspiration and because of distraction. Let’s take a look into how us bloggers can inspire ourselves…

How to inspire yourself

  • Take a look at some other blogs - You can take a look at blogs such as the Daily Post, which publishes Daily Prompts and writing challenges, as well as blogging tips. Why don’t you visit the blogs you look up to and see what’s being written there as well? There’s bound to be some inspiration you can get from them.
  • Join a writing group - There are many writing groups that you can join for post ideas as well. Ask other bloggers for ideas and maybe even write with them.
  • Search social media - You can also take a look at what’s being posted on social media and see if anything interests you. This is especially good if you write about current news affairs and the latest events.
  • Just write - If you really don’t know what to write about, just write about what’s on your mind. Your thoughts could be very interesting to others.

How to avoid distractions

As I said a little earlier, another common cause of the Writer’s Block is distraction. This can be an easy and hard problem to solve. If you suffer from distraction when writing, you might want to take a few of these tips:

  • Find out what you’re going to write about first - It’s always a good idea to find out what you’re going to write about and do your research before you start writing when possible. Doing this stops you from moving away from your writing and doing something else.
  • Turn off your phone - The chances are that if someone calls you when you’re writing, you’re going to totally forget what you were writing about and become distracted. You can prevent this by, of course, turning off your phone and any notifications before you start writing.
  • Go on full screen mode - If your blogging service offers a full screen mode, use it. This prevents you from being distracted by the side of the screen. Worry about tags, categories and all of that when you’ve finished writing.
  • Close other programs - If you have other programs running in the background, close them. If another program disturbs you when you’re in the middle of writing a new post, you’re probably going to be tempted to open it.
  • Create a schedule - Create a posting schedule and stick to it. If you do this, the chances are that you’ll get into the habit of writing at a certain time quite quickly.

And they’re my tips on surviving the Writer’s Block, I hope you have found them useful!

Enjoy Blogging,

Tom
