Senseless Sunday Sarcasm : How not to make mistakes as a blogger?
This entire post could be summed up as follows:
The only way to avoid making mistakes as a blogger is NOT to write ANYTHING.
You can just sit at your desk, admire your site and never publish.
If, like me, you have a blog with the word RANT in it, you’re not going to be writing about the stock market…
Unless you had a dental student who was once a stock broker.
Yes, I wrote a rant about that. He had the misfortune to replace a dental student who was excellent. If his stock brokering was at the level of his dental skills, I now know why the market crashed in 2008.
If you insist on having the courage to step outside the NO MISTAKES ZONE, here’s my advice:
Number 1. Write out your pain — the good, bad, and ugly of it. Let it sit in draft for a day. If you wait too long, you could lose the passion in your writing.
However, if you’re writing about your in-laws, ensure they still use a manual typewriter, don’t own a computer and have a flip phone. Otherwise, this will be your fate:
2. Not everyone is going to like what you write. Live with it. Someone seeking love poems is not going to be content with this:
3. If you have spell check on your blogsite, try to use it — especially if you’re dyslexic.
4. Ignore the stats — they go up and down faster than a wave in a hurricane. Remember one important fact:
5. If you insist on offending no one then please, continue staring at a blog with no posts.
That’s all the advice I have in me for
this second the day.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to stare at my stats and perseverative over the fact that I just lost one reader.
