How a blog post originates (in my world anyway):
The clouds in the sky last night captured my attention. I took a few photos from the verandah and went looking for suitable quotes to use with my picture.
My searching uncovered the word Nubivagant which tickled my fancy. So I checked it actually was a real word, and created this graphic in Canva, using my cloud photo as the background.
I think it was the meaning of the word as much as the new word that piqued my interest.
Nubivagant: Wandering in the clouds; moving through the air
I shared the graphic on my Facebook page and decided to upload it to my blog as well. Sometimes I do it the other way around – sharing my blog post onto my Facebook page after publishing it. I have found Facebook posts that are links (such as a blog post) don’t often get as much traction as a straight photo post, so it’s always good to mix it up. But I’m not one to worry about the stats too much! I just like sharing and being creative.
I then decide if it’s worth making a Pinterest graphic for the post, often it’s not worth it in my opinion, and decide where to share it.
Words and Photos
I like words and photos so this type of post appeals to me. I don’t tend to think too much about what will get attention from others as I’m not driven by stats, but rather by creativity, as stated above.
In regards to a blogging schedule, do you have one? I like to post when I have something to say but I don’t have a set schedule as such.
In some of the things I’ve read about blogging it is suggested that you set a schedule so your readers know what to expect and when – but over the years I’ve decided I’m not that sort of blogger. I don’t offer blogging advice very often but I wrote this post a while ago, due to all the confusing advice I was reading and it proved to be very popular – I admit to being confused. Apparently I wasn’t alone in my confusion.
