With the arrival of spring I've been revisiting my own blogging journey so Strawberry Singh's Blogging Journey Challenge is very timely indeed. What a wonderful opportunity to reflect on my travels, ponder the paths taken by other Second Life bloggers and make some corrections to my current course. Thank you, Berry for launching another excellent adventure!
Which electronic devices do you use to blog with? Tatiana, Duchesse de Provence Coeur, would say she uses only the finest quill pen and perhaps some oil paints. I keep it almost as basic and stick to my computer.
Do you have a mission statement for your blog, if so, what is it? Connect; Create; Entertain; Inform; Have Fun; Do no Harm; (not necessarily in that order).
How do you feel about blogs that use their platforms to spread negativity? If that's their only goal I'm not interested in them. Though I appreciate all sides of a discussion, relentless negativity will just suck the soul right out of you.
Are you a grammar junkie? Do you thoroughly check your blog for errors before posting and/or do you judge other people’s posts if they contain errors? I do make an effort to act as my own editor (it's not easy) with the goal of communicating clearly. As for judging other people's posts; I firmly believe that people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones :)
If you could switch blogs with another blogger who would it be? He's not a SL blogger but I would switch with Philippe Joubert Lussac of Gris-bleu, consistently one of the most beautiful blogs I've ever seen. I also love Jamie Adair and her History Behind Game of Thrones. Dang! Why didn't I think of doing that!
Has your blog/blogging style evolved over the year(s)? How? My first post, Just Arrived, was published January 1, 2009. The whole blogging process was exciting & a tad overwhelming. Not only did I have to begin writing again but I had to figure out all the technical aspects as well as the whole blog design thing. At least now I can leverage my basic knowledge and concentrate on improving. Honestly, I continue to find the whole process fascinating.
