No, I'm not going to write about housekeeping. If you thought that, you really don't know me.
I just want to let people know what is coming up on my blog. I generally steer clear of conducting business on my blog, but I don't want people to misunderstand.
I have a lot of followers who aren't bloggers. People who follow me because they know me and like me. Or my train wreck of a life is entertaining. Whatever. I want to clear some things up for them. Because if there's one thing I've learned in the past year that I've been blogging it's that blogland has it's own set of guidelines and it's own language.
Now if you know me, you know that I'm not a stickler for following the rules. Commandments and laws, yes. Societal rules and expectations, not so much.
So as I've been adjusting to this new blog world, I've picked and chosen which rules I'd live by. I've avoided a bunch of the everybody does it areas. Because they weren't me. And if I can't be me on my blog then I won't play anymore. I'll take my ball and go home.
But I have participated in a few things. One of those is a blogging community called SITS. It's all about developing yourself as a blogger and connecting up with other bloggers. It's about supporting each other.
Truthfully, I've boycotted a bunch of the activities they do. Just not my thing. But this month they are all about writing. It's Content is King month. That's something I can get on board with.
In particpating in this event, I am choosing to do several of the suggested activities -- all with my flavor. I will do two of them here and one on my other blog (heavier topic). That's this week. Who knows what next week will bring?
The focus for this week is Finding Your Voice. I think this is something I'm generally pretty good at. But I usually pick my topics. Doing this with someone else's prompts may be a challenge.
This month is all about improved writing, so I am throwing out an open invitation. If you have feedback for me, please share it. If you see things I could improve on, please tell me. I'm open. I promise we'll still be friends afterward.
On with the challenge.
