5 Things I Learned About Blogging

It’s My Anniversary!

I have been blogging for a year. What have I learned?

1. Using a blog to practice writing has encouraged me to take risks in other areas of my writing life.

2. Blogging helps me to pay more attention to what’s going on around me and to what I’m trying to do as a parent, a teacher, and a writer.

3. Blogging can be lonely.

4. It is hard to write well enough to get people interested enough to actually comment.

5. When people do read my blog and comment, I enjoy the conversation and value their thoughts.
