Hello blog fans!
This is an unusual post, not strictly telly related, but a matter of business that I’m excited about. I’ve just started the super-popular WordPress Blogging 101 course to learn how to write a better blog. These past five months I’ve really enjoyed the experience of writing a blog because tv is a genuine interest of mine, something I do as part of my daily routine. It’s a pleasure to focus on one interest as opposed to past scatter-gun attempts where anything and everything could be a blog post. That just got overwhelming and it was easy to give up and forget about writing altogether.
People have been really kind and told me they like my writing, but I know it could be better. I worry that as I’ve not really written creatively since I was in school my writing style might be a bit stunted. Like y’know… I don’t want to like… sound like a sixteen-year-old forever OMG! I’ve tried to break the habit of calling everyone dude, so I need to do that in the way I write too.
I’ve been very fortunate in that the mysterious Gods of Blog have seen fit to shine their loving light on my attempts and make this a pretty popular blog, certainly far more popular than anything I’ve written before. And thanks to Twitter I get to do a bit of shameless self-promotion and reach out to people who have been on the tv shows I watch, and the critics I really admire. Again, they’ve all been very kind and supportive. So now I know I’ve got an audience I want to be able to continue to do good things and keep you entertained.
I’ve updated my About page, and will try to keep up to date with the lists of shows that I’m watching, and be honest with you about the ones where I’ve given up.
