Good Monday Morning! Playing some catch up with the WordPress Writing 101 Class.
Day 10: Update your readers over a cup of coffee: No matter what type of blog you have, it’s sometimes necessary to post updates: from project news to personal messages about what’s going on in your life. One creative approach to an update post is a “virtual coffee date.” Share any details you’d like and include as many as you want, as long as you begin each with If we were having coffee right now…
Day 11: Writing and Not Writing : What do you do when you’re not writing? How do you reset and return, refreshed? What do you need in your day-to-day life to maintain balance. Today, publish your post in any form you wish, as long as you focus on one or all of these questions.
If we were having coffee right now you would be asking me about the boxes in the living room. I would assure you, that while on a some visceral level packing out the books feels weird, it is not another move. The boxes are in preparation for painting the kitchen/living room area of the townhouse.
If we were having coffee right now, I would tell you that I am working on Connor’s Reach this week, on Week Six of Eight my Journalism Class for Engaged Citizens. Sweet Terry and I are so glad the weather is cooling as it is big time playtime for us to be hiking again. High tourist season is in full swing now and we will begin to utilize the more local known only places and routes when out. I would be asking you about your family, health, and any travel plans. I would ask what you are reading. I’d ask what is on your mind and heart and I would listen to what you had to say. I’d tell you Sweet Terry and I traveled over Mingus Mountain on Sunday to Prescott and had a perfect day strolling Gurley and Cortez Streets. I’d tell you I have started taking my camera everywhere again. It feels good, it feels right, and these are some pictures from Sunday.
If we were having coffee right now I would ask if your friends and family show up to your site? I would share with you that while I have 330 global followers on my website, that no one I actually know reads, likes, comments, follows, or contacts me through my website. My daughter and one friend, with my nagging, looked once, months ago with no interest or feedback and have not mentioned it since. I would pass you the banana bread I baked and tell you how I love my blog, and growing it with more skilled, variety, and quality content is so important to me. I would be telling you how much I value and appreciate you for all of the support, interest and help you have given to me, and how much I enjoy visiting and supporting your website.
I would say thank you so much for stopping by for coffee, and suggest we go outside for a good long walk together.
