I bought this t-shirt from Amazon, because I enjoy blogging and I agree with the message. Blogging is a great way to develop new skills and it can even make you smarter.
- Blogging increases creativity, since you are always on the look out for new material, stories, artwork, or photography to share with your followers.
- Blogging improves your writing skills and each post must be edited for grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
- Blogging requires a certain amount of computer skills.
- Blogging also results in the need to conduct research and increases knowledge on various topics.
There are a lot of benefits to blogging. If you have others to add to my list, let me know in the comment section.
I had the opportunity to talk to a Girl Scout group today. I took Blue with me, so I can tell them about service dogs, dog training, and I wanted to explain the differences between how humans and dogs process smells.
I believe the girls are in Kindergraden and 1st grade, so they are really young. I thought I had it under control, but I am afraid I overestimated my ability to communicate with such a young crowd.
At times, the poor kids looked a bit confused. However, I think they enjoyed the presentation or at least they enjoyed watching Blue. I hope they learned something from it and if so I will call it a success.
Now that I sit here thinking about it and how I struggled, I have a greater respect for the adults that volunteer to work with young children.
I feel bloggers are often misunderstood and I have listed a few things I wish people knew about us.
- Bloggers are writers. I spend time everyday writing for my blog. That’s what makes me a writer.
- Blogging takes talent and creativity. It’s not easy developing relevant content on a consistent basis.
- Bloggers are not perfect. I put a lot of time into researching and editing my blog posts, but I still make mistakes. I am only human. I make mistakes.
In what ways do you feel misunderstood as a blogger?
