Tagged by a Whirling Dervish

Thanks to Whirling Dervish at Stoney Moss for the tag. This blogging thing is starting to change for me. I never expected anyone to read my blog, let alone be interested in what I have to say. Likewise, I didn't ever think anyone would be interested in any comment I had to make on what they had written.

Just lately I've come to realise that people do actually read my posts, and that people DO want to hear from me. It's taken forever for me to develop a sense of being part of a community, and of wanting to contribute. I'm still slack at posting comments and responding to comments posted here. I will try to get better. In the meantime:

-Start Copy-

It’s very simple. When this is passed on to you, copy the whole thing, skim the list and put a * star beside those that you like. (Check out especially the * starred ones.)
Add the next number (1. 2. 3. 4. 5., etc.) and write your own blogging tip for other bloggers. Try to make your tip general.

After that, tag 10 other people. Link love some friends!

Just think- if 10 people start this, the 10 people pass it onto another 10 people, you have 100 links already!

1. Look, read, and learn. ******

2. Be, EXCELLENT to each other. *****

3. Don’t let money change ya! *

4. Always reply to your comments. *******

5. Link liberally — it keeps you and your friends afloat in the Sea of Technorati. ****

6. Don’t give up - persistence is fertile. *****

7. Give link credit where credit is due. *******

8. Pictures say a thousand words and can usually add to any post.******

9. Participating in ‘memes’ is a destructive habit and should be avoided at all costs. **

10. Don’t hold back.**

11. Short Fiction is the bomb!*

12. Redesign your site often. Visual boredom breeds textual complacency. *

13. Labels--not too many, not too few--help your readers browse.**

14. Get involved in a blog community like Poetry Thursday- this adds creative inspiration to your blog and adds instant visitors- as well as connects you with other bloggers with similar interests.*

15. Don't write anything about anyone that you wouldn't want them to read. You never know who has Googled their way to your blog.

-End Copy-

Despite finding my way into a community, I'm still not that good at imposing any kind of obligation on anyone. So if you want to get involved, please feel free to steal this meme and let me know!

I know what you mean, about still learning the ropes of the whole blogging thing- it is pretty amazing that people all over the world are reading our writing, and are interested and engaging with us!

I would love to hear about the experience you mentioned on my blog. It's really, really difficult to write about those types of experiences- I think poetry is among the best mediums in which to try, but even so, it seems near to impossible.

If it's a spiritual experience, though, you could try writing a poem and getting it over to Tiel Aisha's poetry carnival on August 11th- the theme is spiritual poetry, and that was a good excuse for me to try to work on this one.

Good luck!

Yes, it is very much a spiritual experience. I think I will check out Tiel Aisha's poetry carnival. Thanks for the encouragement!
