Un-blogging: Relearning how to just be me

It’s been a long time that I’ve been blogging over at Random Ramblings. I started it in early 2009, but it didn’t see regular use until May of that year, when I successfully blogged an entire month, for National Blog Posting Month. It was a lot of fun, and really sparked a love of, respect for, and desire to BLOG – and to blog regularly.

 

So, I did. I made the decision to blog every day, which de-evolved into six days a week, then to “this day = this topic”, which eventually became what it was most recently: as many posts as possible across wide and varied topics every day. I never really felt like I found my voice as a blogger, though, like I was putting the words up there and making an effort, but never really managed to.

 

Now I’m going to go back to blogging on here, which I know I’ve said before, but this time… I really will. :)

 

I want to start by writing like I’m not supposed to, to unlearn my Random Ramblings bloggery ways, so help me out; how should I go about it? Bad spelling and grammar for a post? Something else similarly awful? Help me unlearn that by suggesting ways that I can “blog badly”! :D

The only advice I could give is write often and boldly. Readers will come. I've written shitty posts, or boring ones, or navelgazey tripe. But if I hadn't pushed through and written I know I personally would have petered out.

I'm adding this site to my feed reader and tweeting this post. I look forward to hearing more from you!

Write an entire blog post using less than 20 vowels.
