Blogging Blues

Getting back to the main theme of this blogsite, I would like to share the "learning while doing" techniques, similar to OTJ (On-The-Job training) which are gleaned from the experiences of other seasoned bloggers.

Here's some tips posted by Jimmy to Blog Tutorial. The blogging tips will be posted in bite-sized portions and condensed for easy viewing.


Are Your Suffering From Blogging Blues?

We all know what it means to have the blues. Every so often, we feel down and out, as if we didn’t have the motivation or strength to go on. This could be about life in general, this could be about work, this could even be about blogging.

I have heard of people who have only been blogging for a couple of months who feel as if they have lost their motivation to maintain their blog. I have also heard of people who have been blogging for a long time and feeling the same thing. I would like to call this the blogging blues.

Let us take a look at the first situation – the relatively new bloggers. I believe that one main reason for their blogging blues is the fact that they jump into the blogging bandwagon with certain expectations in mind. These expectations sometimes exceed realistic terms and this is why they suddenly find themselves demotivated.

So how should you adjust your expectations in order to avoid blogging blues? I think that one very important thing is to bear in mind that being successful at blogging is something that does not happen overnight. It may not even happen in a month or two. It could take months and months of consistent posting and online activity.

The most important about blogging I believe, is that you must enjoy it! If you read my blog and the comments that my 'buddies' make, you will know that we all enjoy "tam tian shuit tei" (talk sky, talk earth).

Very true, Chun See. When we treat blogging as a hobby, we enjoy doing it! [谈天说地]helps to chase away the blues and is so convenient and flexible on the blog. The readers can choose to respond at his own time, own pace without any time constraint. Its so much fun too.
