While being on hiatus I really noticed how much a blogger does so I decided to write a poem about it. I’m not too good at this so bear with me and I hope you enjoy it!!
Wake up early…
Click on the W…
Create the graphics for your next three posts…
Upload the photos…
Add them to your post…
Start a new post…
Stop once you can’t think anymore…
Sending emails, responding to comments, posting comments, this is your day.
Authorize that comment, drop that one in spam, empty the trash…you know the drill.
Send someone an email about your collab through their contact page.
Send responses to questions of one that’s already in the works.
Thank you so much!! My pleasure!! Anytime!! Wonderful post!! These phrases echo in your mind all day.
Your face hurts from grinning at the sweet comments, your side aches from laughing at a funny post, your eyes burn from staring at your blog drafts so long.
Grab those fellow blogger’s links. Copy and paste, hit bold, hit italics…it’s all part of what you do. Of what WE do.
Change the font, move it just so, stamp it with your blog name. Download images, take screenshots, delete unused ones…so many hours of long and hard work and yet somehow, we wouldn’t change it for the world!
We can all long for those first moments. When you posted all tags and awards within a day of being nominated…oh those were the days. Simplistic, easy, and full of new discoveries each day. With every new morning, there were new stats to check, your heart did a cartwheel with each new follower, and you found out why the word community means so much!
But, if you think about it, we wouldn’t choose to go back to those days.
It’s really neat to sit here and think about how I first started and how little I knew, but isn’t it so much more meaningful to know all that you do now? To see that you weren’t going to be a failure, that you were going to gain followers, comments, and likes?
The people who once were all strangers, have now become some of my dearest friends. I like it better that way.
I like having those people as my friends, having them know me and having me know them instead of being strangers to one another.
It makes blogging and life much brighter and happier!
You had to go through the struggles, push past the hard times, and move forward through the misunderstanding, in order to understand.
Becoming a blogger wasn’t an easy task. You had to figure it all out mostly by yourself, which wasn’t easy! Yet, here you are! You’re one!
You are a blogger!!
Hope y’all enjoyed that!
