So here I am again on Word Press. The blog on the page associated with my business, River of Hope Enterprises, doesn’t seem to be developing any readership so I’m trying a different platform.
A while back I committed to blogging every weekday and since the new year I have been successful. It’s not that I’m such a great blogger or have any wonderful wisdom to share but I do love to write.
The best way to get better at it is to do it. If you play piano badly it is pretty much guaranteed that after 10,000 hours of practice you will be of concert quality. I don’t know if it takes 10,000 hours of writing to make a writer but it is my hope that somewhere along the line of practicing a book will begin to formulate in my head or on the screen. It might slip out through the cracks of practicing on the blog.
While practice helps, sometimes the medium needs some work. I could learn to play the piano on a little two octave keyboard and get really good at it but I’d be missing about 62 keys and several octaves. It wouldn’t allow for perfection in playing the whole piano. So it seems to be with my present blog platform. It is limited and doesn’t provide the exposure I need to develop a following.
That is why I’m trying this new platform. A few people I know have had good success with this one. Also I read an article the other day that it’s not good to confuse your business and your blog pages. At any rate this is worth a try and while I don’t quite like the format as much as my web site it is worth the try.
A few weeks ago I issued a challenge concerning this (very offensive to my ego) shirt that I have to wash once in a while. Since then I have only added two readers to my list of followers. I have a long way to go.
Now I am renewing the challenge. If 50 people will read my blog and post a comment I will make a video of me cutting up this shirt. My partner may not like the challenge, because it’s his shirt, but I’ll get him a different one that is kinder to my ego.
Thanks to those who have been following. I hope you will continue to do so and feel free to comment on this new format.
