“To what extent is your blog a place for your own self-expression and creativity vs. a site designed to attract readers? How do you balance that?”
My writing ability certainly isn’t author worthy. Although I have read a few books and wondered about their ability
My blog is self-expression and its my personal help page. I need to write to make sence of life. I must admit there is a thrill laced with humility when people tell me what I write helps them in some way.
The blog started, really when death arrived in my life. A way to sort it all out. I also write about perennial plants. Writing about plants is part of my vocation, plants, gardening, perennials are the thread through the various needles of life.
I think my daughter would say my grammar and spelling has improved just a bit. Creativity is thought about in throwing a thought thread out there in a way to attract a passer-by reader. I am reminded often of my high school creative writing class, I hope Mrs. Belz would approve.
