Well (Lucky for you!) if you have never written one but perhaps you have entertained the thought. Because hopefully, todays’ lesson on “How to Write a Blog” will surely encourage you to become a Blogger. So, please allow me to tell you a few things about myself that uniquely qualifies me to get you started on your Blogging career.
I guess the easiest thing for me to do is make you aware of the fact that one of my special gifts from my Loving God is (the ability to make complicated things simple). So, relax and enjoy this Blog (Don’t run through it 90 miles an hour.) And as you read, your subconscious mind will start to absorb the “Blogging Process”. And while stimulating your subconscious mind it will also help you gain a little more confidence. You can also visit my website and have a look at some of my other Blogs, and eBooks and if you like them, you, should continue reading this Blog. However, if you don’t like them, I would suggest that you certainly are wasting your valuable time and you should probably move on to Greener Pastures, wherever they might be?
(Lucky for me!) I am in The Woodlands, Texas, visiting my daughter, Mindy, who is recovering from her shoulder surgery. And I would be amiss if I didn’t state that The Woodlands Texas surely must be (The Rescue Dog Capital of the World). Throughout the day you are sure to witness a parade of lovely people (Walking their Lucky Rescued Dogs). Believe me, I have never seen so many Happy Dogs!
Just a couple of day ago I was on my way to my favorite coffee shop to do a little Blogging. While driving past a woman walking her 6 Rescue Dogs, which (if you don’t mind) I would like to call them her Six Pack. I was totally amazed! I had never seen anything like it! As I continued my journey the thought of a Blog immediately entered my creative little brain and I couldn’t help but say to myself: “Shucks, I wish I could have taken a photograph of that missed opportunity!”
Well, (Lucky for me!) I saw her again a couple of days later. As I very slowly rode by, I rolled down the window of my car, introduced myself, and told her that I was an Author Blogger and would love to write a Blog about her walking her 6 Rescue Dogs. And (Lucky for me!) she happily agreed. So, I parked my car on the side of the road and took the above photo and thanked her for her willingness to be of help. She was such a Lovely Lady. As I reintroduced myself, she told me her name was Molly. And as I drove off, I was so happy, I belted out a little of the Christmas song: “Oh, by Gosh by Golly, it’s time for Mistletoe and Molly!”
When I stopped at the Stop Sign, a guy on the side of the road, rudely yelled at me saying “You should have sung, it’s time for Mistletoe and Holly not Mistletoe and Molly!”
I rudely yelled back at him: “The nerve of you! Just who do think you are? Telling me I should have sung Its’ time for Mistletoe and Holly not Mistletoe and Molly. I went on yelling to him that I said Mistletoe and Molly because I was so grateful that Molly allowed me to Write a Blog about Walking her “Six Pack”. And speaking of Mistletoe: There is a wonderful tradition that allows you (of course not you, you, nasty man) the opportunity to give a little kiss on the cheek to someone you like when both of you are standing under some Mistletoe. And if Molly had been standing under some Mistletoe, there is no doubt in my mind I would have given Molly and each of her Six Pack a little kiss on the cheek.” Well, enough of that rude guy on the side of the road, I’m not going to let him spoil my day!
So, let’s get back to “How to Write a Blog”. Subconsciously, if you are aware of it or not, you, have just picked up “the essence of writing a Great Blog”. I will elaborate with the following:
- A Great Blog comes straight from the heart, not from the head. This simply means you don’t have to be perfect (Politically Correct). Just be you. I must repeat, be yourself.
- You can become A Great Blogger if you just let it happen. Keep in mind that we each have our own Special Blog that no one else can ever Write.
- When you start writing, keep it simple, trust God, and ask Him for His help.
- Just relax and smell the roses! And please, whatever you do, don’t take yourself too seriously.
- Always Love and Laugh, Trust and Pray.
- Just have fun and enjoy the Magic! (And never forget to always be on the lookout for Mistletoe!)
SO, KEEP IN MIND AND NEVER FORGET!
