So it’s almost the end of the
world year and this week’s DPChallenge has got me thinking about my first year trying my hand at this whole blogging thing. I think it’s time to reflect and see how far I’ve come since my very first post… Let’s ask the author shall we?
Q: So Leonard, 2012 is coming to an end. What was the best part of blogging here on WordPress?
A: I have had a lot of fun writing on here and posting my random thoughts for all of the internet to briefly glance at and then move on to cat videos! I mean look at my first post all the way back in May! That Leonard would be AMAZED at how much Chicago Gore as blown up in the last 6 months. Shocked even!
Q: What was the hardest part of writing the blog?
A: Just finding the time to write something. With work and home life stuff popping up, I had a hard time finding big blocks of time where I could just sit down and come up with something interesting or funny to write. Also, I’ve been all over the map in my topics. I have so many ideas and things that catch my attention that probably stretch my writing style too thin.
Q: What do you want to improve on for the blog for 2013?
A: I think I will come up with a more focused blog for next year. I will try to set a schedule for posting, maybe 2 or 3 a week and blog about specific topics on certain days. I want to be a more consistent blogger and finally get some consistant viewers. Upping the view count will be something I want to improve on as well.
Q: What was your favorite post from this year?
A: I really enjoyed that whole No 3 Letter Words challenge from a couple months ago! It was extremely hard to avoid using gimme words like “the” and “and”… You really get to know your contractions better after a challenge like that.
Q: Well, I’m off to watch adorable cat videos. Anything else you want to share with your readers?
A: Please, please comment on my posts! Even if you think it sucks, and boy it probably does, I can’t improve if you don’t let me know what you like or don’t like! I’m desperate! I’ll write anything!!!
