While reading through some new blogs in my Blog reading Marathon yesterday , discovered Mel’s blog.
She writes about this simple idea that’s so powerful yet practical am surprised how most of us who ‘want to blog more often’ don’t do that enough.
She talks about MicroblogMondays. Writing a simple post [linking it up her blog on Mondays] thats Microblog. 8 Sentences or less. Simple isn’t it?
How often we have this interesting thought , idea , observation that we type away as a Facebook status or tweet . An incident , a movie review , how our weekend was. Anything at all.She compares that with writing on some one else home when we have our own space waiting for us to spend more time with it- our blog.
We usually set aside some thoughts and ideas to be built up as full-fledged posts later as due to some predefined notion in our head we feel , a blog post needs to be of a certain length or should be well researched or even articulated beautifully and written out more creatively keeping in mind the tribe of readers we expect who would magically drop by just to read and comment on it.
But there’s no written rule to Blog Writing other than writing .
So instead of squandering those beautiful thoughts on someone else ‘s walls just turn towards your own home.
#MicroblogMondays are tiny posts , just like tweets or facebook status messages that now I would Blog about and I strongly suggest , you too 🙂
