Interview Tag

I’ve been tagged by The Spirit Keepers over at Seeing The Whisper blog for a “Blogger Interview Award.”  Over the four years I’ve been blogging I do get sent these awards from time to time.  Normally they aren’t my thing, but I liked to acknowledge the kind thought behind the award and say that I am flattered that you’d think of me.  This award asks that I answer a few questions as part of the “interview,” so here goes.

How did you get into blogging?

Four years ago I wanted a way to keep myself writing, so I thought, “Why not a blog?”  I created one here on WordPress and I’ve been writing ever since.  Not an exciting story, but give me time and I’ll make something more interesting up – maybe something with aliens and space ships.

What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?

Editing and the delete key are your friend.  If you write a 1,000 word post, edit it back to 500 words and you’ll find the post stronger.  Write and publish on a regular schedule.  Writer’s block is all in your head, just write – even if it’s about having writer’s block.  Go the beach, forest, lake or anywhere in nature and breath in the world.

What would be your dream campaign?

Snickerdoodles for everyone.  The world would be a better place if we all just enjoy a nice cookie with a friend over tea more often.

What do you think about rankings?

Not much.

Well there you have it, my answers.  Come back on Sunday for my regular weekly essay like post.  This week I’ll be discussing how baking snickerdoodles will improve your writing and make your blog popular.

Tea time – hope there are snickerdoodles left in the tin,

Andrew

    Love the tea and cookie idea. I also like a scone with my tea but don’t have it very often.

    What an intriguing word…snickerdoodle. Still, there hasn’t been any cake so far that I didn’t like, so I’ll give it a go if I ever see one!

  5. Exactly what are rankings, Andrew?

    • Actually, I am not sure was meant by “rankings” in this context. I assumed it was reference SEO (search engine optimization) rankings. I don’t do much to optimize this blog for the search engines, so I didn’t explore this one.

      • For me, this sounds like a case of ‘ignorance being bliss.’

        Thinking in this perspective can only take up valuable inner mind space best used for letting the creativity out to play.
        All my best to you, Andrew.
