The Blogging poem!


BloggingEDIT
As I entered the world of blogging

It took my breath away,

It felt so good that someone out there read

The mess I wrote

Then there were flashy tags and bright headlines

Trying to teach me something I already knew,

How do you get everyone’s attention on you?

They told me try that and this,

To try and give out gifts,

Do that so people are loyal to me,

Not that there is any guarantee,

They showed a certain way to write

But that took away the joy

They played with words like toys,

Made me want to resign

Someone then told me how

Many already read what I wrote

And that’s all I ever wanted,

I realized likes and comments, matter not

If someone actually reads what I thought

So I took the bits I want

and let the rest clog,

Made my brain change its lane,

Promised to not think of follows again

Cause if I did I wont fight as much

As much as I might if I wrote for what is mine,

If my blog needs some fame,

It will through my words untamed,

Through my rules and my ways.

Nothing more

Nothing less.

Cause the world of blogging

Always takes my breath away.


Hey 1nsaniacs!

So this is my third work for This month’s TTT – AN Encounter With an Advice! What? You still haven’t submitted your work for it? Do it now! Go check out what it is HEREE 

Love ya ll!

Pst We hit 900 😉

Psst Get to writing writers! April is about to end!

Pssst What do you think of this? I had written it when I first started blogging, and even though the online marketing websites are REALLLY helpful they do get over whelming when you first start out. I thought about deleting this blog sooo many time because of the overwhelming feeling but if I did that.. How would we be here today huh? I am really glad I din’t and I din’t because of you all! Whenever I even think about that I read the amazing comments you leave here! And get right back to work. Thank you so so much guys!

  1. I can tell you that I’ve had many blogs since Summer 2011, and the best way to “succeed”, and more importantly achieve personal satisfaction, is to just forget about Stats!!! My latest blog hasn’t been up long, and people are showing up with no effort on my part. Just write from your heart, and “they will come”. Best wishes!!

    1. Same! I ve had a good number of unsuccessful blogs myself, so many that when I told my family I made another blog they were like…one more? Again? *sigh* hahaha Anyways none of them were about writing though! So I am glad to have this! Oii and thanks for stopping by! Really appreciate it!

  2. Kudos for 900. Yes – the feeling of someone reading what we write is satisfying, the realization that we are touching their souls from a far far distance is calming and fulfilling. All the best for a speedy 1K 🙂

  3. Hi!

    I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy your blog. I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award – given to bloggers, from bloggers. Check out my latest blog post for more information 🙂

    (I know it’s usually to nominate blogs with less than 1000 followers, but you’re just over and I didn’t want to leave you off when I’ve loved your posts so much)

  4. Great poem! I started blogging with no interest of likes, followers or shares. I just find it very therapeutic blogging crap that goes on in my life. It’s for me to look back on in years to come and be able to remember stuff and have a laugh.
    Keep blogging, forget about the readers and just enjoy letting your mind run free with your thoughts.

    1. That is a great use of it. I know a lot of writers who do that! One if my blogger friend says he blogs cause it’s cheaper than therapy xD Anyways I do want to take the blog forward but not by losing into numbers! Thank you!

  5. Wonderful work as always and I think the theme is very relevant to lots of bloggers. I think blogging is tangled with this idea of fame, when we should really just be enjoying what we’re doing and then seeing what happens. By the way, I subscribed to you by email 🙂

  6. Precisely captures what it is to blog. I am glad there are others who are interested in the “psychology” of blogging as they do it! You have a very well-presented blog too. Makes it easy to navigate and reader-friendly. Keep up the good work!

  8. I really love this! Perfectly summarises the struggles us new bloggers may face. Pretty much summed up my blogging experience so far! 😛 I made my blog a few months ago but was too focused on trying to write stuff to please the readers, which sucked the fun out of it. I came back to it 2 days ago with the intention of not pleasing anyone, but myself (& hoping maybe someone might relate to me somewhere down the line! :-P)

  9. I agree with you, if we keep thinking about follows, likes and comments we’ll feel let down, so I guess it’s enough joy knowing that someone somewhere read your post

  10. ‘It took my breath away’… a pretty apt description of when I first started blogging. I still remember the high when I got viewers from exotic places like Azerbaijan or Russia or Venezuela. If nothing else, blogging has done wonders for my knowledge of world geography 😀

    While getting constructive feedback from fellow bloggers can be of great help, at the end of the day we write for ourselves. If we write to please others, then it’s just another day job without pay 😉 Enjoy your creative spark and let the words flow 🙂

    1. Hahaha i know right! Each and ever view feels so huge! I snickered reading this in public at the geography one (got the weird looks) hahaha. Oh well its information that matter right? Yes constructive feedback feel like blessings. That is so on point! It would be like a job! Thank you so much for reading through and commenting! It means alot to me! Cheers! 🙂

  11. I really enjoyed your poem. And in reading through your feedback I had my own “Aha” moment. I’m struggling with just getting people to view my site. I shouldn’t care how many followers I should have. I should just write what’s in my heart and the rest will follow.

      1. Hi Jade. Thanks so much for checking out my blog. I really appreciate it. If I may ask, how many posts do you try to post a week? Do you write everyday or just when the mood strikes? I am struggling with the whole regimented schedule. That’s just sooo not me! What’s your opinion on the whole 😠”You need to follow a schedule and post at the right times,” etc…

      2. With me i just get to post once a week. So i chose friday. Every friday there is a post. There are weeks when i have more time than others so i sneak in a post then! Its pretty flexible you dont have to have to, have it on a specific time. Just chose a day that suits youm or finish a post whever in the week. Like i have random post ideas that i just draft and later then edit them. You need to find what suits you really. Your welcome! And thank you 😉

  13. I totally agree with your poem, we are here to express ourselves and not market ourselves,if we start behaving as per some rules and how others tell us to be,we will lose our originality,our uniqueness. some one who read what we wrote and share their ideas is more than the word ‘ satisfaction’ could mean. A big applause for your lovely poem and being so truthful .
