Hey, Haven’t I Seen That Before?

likes-reblogsWhen you decide to re-blog your own stuff or take an old post and freshen it up a bit that can be a good thing. An old post can be seen in a new light by new eyes who are just now discovering your blog.

When your creative juices are running low, you can find inspiration from things you have done before. Be careful not to get too repetitive but enjoy the process of introducing your followers to your blogging journey. I would advise doing a short introduction to the post you are re-blogging to set up context and to let folks know this is a golden oldie.

It can be  fun to take a look back until new ideas for new posts come along.

Some Secrets To Blogging

I have been blogging a long time and I have found that the secret to a good blog is content, personality and honesty. People I think want to see something real and I try to be that in every post. Another secret is to keep on blogging…the more you do it the better you get at it. 

Finding community and like-minded people can be a huge help too although you do find some folks who are heavy on the criticism. 

Like anything it is good to make it fun and something that allows for expression and reflection. You might even change the world by your words and images. Blogging is awesome and I encourage you to be the star of your own blog. 

Daily Prompt: Meddle

There is a difference between heavy metal and heavy meddle. One is music and the other is someone who gets in your business and other affairs. No one likes to be meddled with whether it be family or friends. The right to do what you like is something people take seriously. I remember the cartoon Scooby Doo where the teen detectives meddle in the business of the guy trying to scare people off. Perhaps its best not to meddle in other people’s stuff because it could come back to bite you.

Daily Prompt: Bottle

My emotions and feelings you can find in a bottle. Yeah as a man sometimes I keep stuff there. You know we aren’t always good at sharing and that sort of thing. Putting a cap on that bottle keeps everything inside, makes life less messy. You know it harms the person and the people they love when they keep things bottled up. However it’s what many people do. I even preach its OK to share the spiritual and emotional load with others but I suck at practicing that. Bottles come in handy for drinking stuff too so you can handle your life that way too.
