  2. Howdy terrific website! Does running a blog similar to
    this take a great deal of work? I’ve absolutely no knowledge of computer programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you
    have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject nevertheless I just wanted to ask.

    Kudos!

    1. Hi Susanne, thanks 🙂 I am not a computer programmer. However, I found setting up the blog relatively easy with WordPress as they have excellent supports and tutorials in place. It took me quite a while to get it to the stage I was comfortable launching it – that’s my perfectionist streak coming out. A couple of weeks of pretty full on work. And ongoing tweaking as I learnt more. I am no expert by any means!
      I do post almost every day so yes, it can be as time consuming as you choose to make it.
      Good luck 🙂

  6. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    But imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips,
    this site could definitely be one of the very best in its niche.
    Great blog!

  7. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how
    you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any recommendations or
    tips? Thank you!

    1. Thank you for your kind feedback. It’s always so good to know that people enjoy what I put out there! I don’t mind your question at all. First of all, I have been writing on and off most of my life – poetry, journals, and now of course, my blog. I think one of the things that helps me a lot is I meditate. One of the first things I do is to ground and centre myself so it sort of comes automatically for me to do that when I sit down to write. I have a quite a few posts about meditation on my blog if it interests you. If I am really in the ‘flow’ the words just emerge without conscious thought on my part. I know that probably sounds weird but I don’t know how else to describe it. And when that happens I often don’;t even know what it is I will be writing from one sentence to the next. Of course it’s not always like that. Sometimes I struggle. I think everyone does. It’s good to have a routine – like a regular time for writing. For some it’s mornings. For me it tends to be evenings. Some people also set about very methodically planning their posts. Again, that is not my style.There are lots of online and other courses you can do to learn more. Local libraries here even offer course and there are writing groups you can join where people bounce ideas around and support each other. Hope this helps a bit. Good luck !
