There is nothing more Humbling and Humiliating than blogging. I heard that in a podcast. I think it might have been Mitch Joel that said it. It is so true. When you blog, you put your ideas and thoughts out … Continue reading
I was talking with a friend of mine who is also a blogger – you have to check out his ideas at thechristiannerd.com. We were watching a performance, and there was a random comment made by one of the announcers. … Continue reading
….can be so scary. At one point, blogging was scary, but this will be my 993rd post. You get used to it. I got used to it. I recorded a video podcast today. It was scary. I have made videos … Continue reading
I was listening to Mitch Joel’s podcast, and he made a comment about finding your voice. It’s a line that you hear bloggers say. People blog to “find their voice,” and it’s suppose to be this process of figuring out … Continue reading
Inherent with blogging is asking questions. Typically, the questions are unanswerable. It’s a place to process and think through things. We write about whatever is bothering us. We write through what we’re processing through. A blog is a great place … Continue reading
Whenever I log on to the dashboard of my blog, I many times will have a spam comment. I’ll check it to make sure there are no false positives, and I am always amazed when I check to see how … Continue reading
There was a time when spreading ideas wasn’t so easy. Books had to be written by hand. Ideas traveled slowly. It’s difficult for me to imagine a world without books or newspapers. Guttenberg changed all of that. With his printing … Continue reading
I have met so many people just by blogging. I can’t tell you how many great people that I have met and interacted with – on my blog, in the comments, on Facebook, on their blogs, on Twitter. It’s been fun to meet people from all over the world – from different faiths with different ideas. It’s great to have the ability to create content and share it with people. I am making tons of new friends, and I am glad to have many new friends.
I am learning so much from you. A few of you have really taught me some deep things about education and teaching. Some of you have taught me about myself and the way that I think. I try and keep my posts short, and many times the interaction is much longer – but always much sweeter.
….the stuff that I read on blogs is complaining and kinda negative. There’s something about this form of media that is conducive for writers and bloggers to easily complain about stuff. It’s crazy that I have no idea who is … Continue reading
I was listening to the last Media Hacks podcast (and I already posted once about it. click on the link to check out the original media hacks) again today. They made a comment about how blogging is better than a … Continue reading
I saw this tweet on Twitter from @TheBeanCast. Here’s the tweet:
Blogging is emotionally draining when you actually put effort in it. Should just start posting links and snarky comments like everyone else.
Of course I retweeted it, but I wanted to blog it as well. Blogging is not just a cognitive exercise. It could be, but typically it is an emotional experience. It’s emotional in that most people don’t want to even start doing it. You’ve got to want to blog in order to. Then once you start, the more passion and emotion that you have in your blogs, the better it is – because people connect with that. The ideas can be good, but it can also be emotionally draining.
Check out some of my posts that represent this.
I checked out my stats today, and there’s a section where it lists the phrases that people used to find my blog. One of the phrases that someone searched for was “dumb people poetry.” I wrote a little 4 line poem about dumb people – check it out here.
Now, the only thing more pathetic than someone doing a search for “dumb people poetry” is the fact that I wrote a poem about dumb people. How dumb is that? Don’t answer that last question.
