Blogs in English

~ 100 buzzes
THE WORD blog is a conflation of two words: Web and log. It contains in its four letters a concise and accurate self-description: it is a log of thoughts and writing posted publicly on the World Wide Web. In the monosyllabic vernacular of the Internet, Web log soon became the word blog.

This form of instant and global self-publishing, made possible by technology widely available only for the past decade or so, allows for no retroactive editing (apart from fixing minor typos or small glitches) and removes from the act of writing any considered or lengthy review. It is the spontaneous expression of instant thought—impermanent beyond even the ephemera of daily journalism. It is accountable in immediate and unavoidable ways to readers and other bloggers, and linked via hypertext to continuously multiplying references and sources. Unlike any single piece of print journalism, its borders are extremely porous and its truth inherently transitory. The consequences of this for the act of writing are still sinking in.

I've come to the conclusion that there are three things when it comes to successful blogging: Passion, A Strong Foundation & Access to Knowledgeable People.

    #1 Actually, I came to this shift a while back, but as I mentioned to @Irene Hackett, I am still seeking to develop a workable relationship with marketing. In the meantime, I am not letting the success or lack of it influence whether I continue to write.

    #3 Thanks for the feedback, @irene_hackett. Yes, it is true that a writer simply must write, but it is often the process of establishing a peaceful relationship between just writing from your soul and managing the obstacles marketing can often put in your path. As an introvert, I find marketing to be especially difficult when it comes to my books. Promoting others is much easier. :-)

    Good post. Indeed, just plain criticism mars the development process because a sarcastic remark degrades one's motivation, and constructive counseling and feedback rejuvenates a person's spirit to move ahead.

    "Success isn't localized to the individual and its boundaries encompass others."
    What a beautiful expression of the love of the movement of life, @Ali Anani. It is all about integrating tasks beyond our own benefit so that we can spread useable ideas, actions, and good feelings among as many people as possible. Collaboration doesn't happen in a vacuum, and when success does, I know for a fact that these successes feel hollow when we cannot share our joy and accomplishments with those who contributed along the way.

    And the ironic thing is that even the purported slight was illusory, as time changes everything, and right now, as I go back to what I missed reading over the weekend, it looks as though the mother and daughter buzzes are equal in numbers. A slow start should never be mistaken as a lost opportunity.

    #13 You expressed what I meant to say beautifully and thoughtfully dear @Deb Lange. Who owns an idea? Nobody. How often I coin a term and Google it to find somebody else has already used it. With all honesty, I am grateful to this message because I define creativity by our ability to find ideas to turn the negative into positive. We can't make a problem more complex and then try to solve it. So, this part of your comment is spot on " We can bounce off someone's idea and integrate them with our own experience and allow new ideas to be germinated". Unfortunately, the opposite is true as well. We can denature hooney ideas by overheating them. This is my next buzz. Again, I am very grateful for writing a rich comment with lots of wisdom.

    12/09/2016 #13 Deb Lange
    Dear @Ali Anani _ I love how you responded transparently here, to someone's concerns about how your ideas have fruited elsewhere. To me who does originally own an idea today? Perhaps before everyone could read, a person who first wrote an idea could easily be traced. But today, most of us are all very well read, and ideas are so profusely written and read across the world like seeds scattered across the internet who knows where they first came from. Wherever they land if they stimulate new ideas if people build on them, isn't that what is so wonderful about the internet today. We can bounce off someone's idea and integrate them with our own experience and allow new ideas to be germinated. I have loved watching you do this. Isn't that the idea of bebee - to allow for the germination of new ideas as they are sown across the world? I love your humble response.

    Most kids my age only knew about WWII, with our father's having served. However, there was a family two doors down from us who lost their son in Korea. I never asked about it. But, they were always so nice to the kids in the neighborhood. The mother was a school teacher. It must have been doubly tough on veterans who served in Korea and Vietnam, One of my buddy's fathers became one of the first Green Berets, having served in Korea. He was friends with Sgt. Barry Sadler, known for "The Ballad of the Green Berets." He trained many of those sent to Vietnam, but they never sent him. He recently passed, having spent his final years in a veteran's home in Montana. My buddy says those guys were nuts. They'd go to the bar just to start a fight. They'd say it wasn't a fair fight unless the odds were 4-1 against them.

    Great stuff @Phil Friedman I never doubted you for a second. As you know, I have called into question your association with our friends up north. I didn't know igloos came equipped with wi-fi. Having spent a few years in the newspaper business, my portfolio is nothing more than clippings in shoe box. The paper has been sold twice and the offices have since been mothballed, so the morgue has probably been recycled by now. I don't think they ever took the time to transfer it all to a digital archive, that would cost money. But, after all, it's only history. And, as we all know, history never repeats itself.

    Attention bloggers - The Cherished Blogfest begins a week from today. This is an extremely easy way o meet new people and introduce your blog to a new audience (or perhaps reintroduce it to other bloggers who have slipped away).

    It's easy - The blogfest runs next Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but you only have to post one time. You can post each day if you like, but once is fine. Your post should be 500 words and you should tell us about a cherished object of yours (or your pet, or your character).

    You can read more about it and sign-up at the link below.

    #1 Steven, thanks so much for reading today's post. I'm happy to hear that you liked it.

    As for your questions, they are all great ones.

    For me the frustration part is easy. There are tons of things to write about. What I do is put short notes or bullet points into the notepad feature of my phone or take a picture of something inspirational. Then, I go back and use my sources one at a time. I currently don't have a running list. I have been pushing myself to FIND inspiration rather than to store up a list. That said, I may go back to storing some ideas because some days have been harder than others.

    As far as resources like time or energy? I aim to keep my posts as brief as possible. My goal is somewhere between 500-1,000 words max. I don't limit myself but I err on the side of brevity. Sometimes, keeping it brief has allowed me to stretch a single idea into different posts. As far as energy, I treat it like brushing my teeth. It's a daily non-negotiable.

    Thanks for reaching out. I look forward to reading your content!

    Be well,
    Paul

    I am not a regular writer, but I do have a desire to write more. The key I think is not waiting until something inspires me, but actively seeking out and observing everyone and everything around me. Thank you for the motivation @Paul O'Neill

    I'm not a regular reader ... and this is the first post I've read by you. I like it. I like your method of finding material to write about by observing what's around you. Do you find - once you start to look around - that there is so much to write about that you get frustrated? Do you want to write a about lots of things but know there's not enough time or energy to do it all? Even a small window of time spent people watching can spur so many ideas.
