It was the beginning of 2015 when I started this blog, Staying the Course. I was unemployed at the time and already keeping a film photography blog. I started this blog to practice writing, to put my thoughts into words and not just keep them in my head. Also just to blog about my experience of searching for employment with little work experience. Maybe to connect with others who have similar experience in searching for employment. That goal is accomplish, am working full-time.
Fast forward till today, I have learned that I enjoy blogging. My blog isn’t a hit when it come to followers, just about 245 followers. Just the small cyber-interaction you can have with people you never met, even if it just 2 people, who live in another state, city or on the other side of the global is satisfying. As for content and writing, am sure I could do better. I don’t know if my writing has improve since I first started blog, but I do my best that am writing to the highest standard possible. Re-reading what I write and re-reading it again and again before hitting the publish button. Sometimes I wonder if am making any sense with my words, but so far no one who has visiting my blog has mention that my writing sucks or somewhere along those lines. Content, coming up with new content is a struggle sometime which am sure it is for most bloggers. There are time I just don’t know what to write about. So far my only solution to this is writing a book review or posting my progress in drawing.
How long have you been blogging and why do you blog?
