Things I Would Do Differently

Differently

This week for the writers workshop I wanted to write about things I would do differently if I started blogging again.

  • I think the first things I would have to do differently is not care about numbers.  As I look back now I see how much time I spent worrying about numbers and followers.  I spent a lot of time when I started blogging worrying about how many followers I had and the number of comments I would get on posts.  I have since learned that for me watching and worrying about numbers took the fun out of blogging for me so I try not to focus on those things anymore.
  • I also would have picked a name and tagline for my blog in the beginning instead of waiting a few years before I picked one.
  • I wish I would have done more research before I started  blogging.  When I started I had no idea about how big the blogging world was and things like that.  It took me a couple of years before I realized just how big blogging was and where I wanted to go with my own blogs.
  • I also wish I would have spent less time worrying about offending people and more time being true to me and who I am.  I am at a place now with blogging where I try not to offend anyone but I also am not going to not write about something in fear that it will offend someone.

Those are the only things I can think of that I would change if I could start again.

What would you change?
