55 Tips And Ideas About Blogging

Sometimes you have to repurpose an old blog post because you feel it’s some of your best work. In this case, I’m repurposing a very long blog post that had a lot of comments when it was first published in 2014. I have a 5 year limit on how long people can post comments on a blog; that makes this article about 6 1/2 years old.

was 55, now 61

I also wrote it a couple of weeks after I turned 55; hence, the idea for 55 tips and ideas about blogging. I’m going to add a tip here instead of changing the title. I’ve only kept the comments from people who still have blogs, thus have links going to those blogs. Only 2 of the people below are still blogging on a regular basis; who knows, maybe some newer bloggers, or bloggers I’m connected to who didn’t comment the first time around, will show up.

Buy Me A Coffee/Pizza

Whether you’re a new or regular visitor, unless you’re looking at the mobile speed version of this article or my blog overall, you’ll probably notice the little hovering ball at the bottom right. If you need to see it bigger, check this out:

Buy Me A Coffee/Pizza

This is the main logo for a content subscription site called Buy Me A Coffee. What it allows you to do is put a link you create on their website, then share it in other places. If people like your content and want to show their love financially, all they have to do is click on the logo and get transported to your profile page where they’ll have different dollar amounts they can select from to show their appreciation. Isn’t that cool?

Do You Have A Purpose?

Unless you’re connected to me on Facebook or are watching some of the videos from my personal YouTube channel, you probably don’t know what’s been going on in my life lately. If you don’t care, then don’t go any further than this. If you do, I’ve got more to share with you. At the end of this article I’ll have a point to make.

Tired me in a sling

Let’s start off with this particular fact. On March 19th I had shoulder surgery on my right shoulder. I had to have the surgery to repair a couple of torn tendons, which came from a car accident I had back in 2019. I’ve been dealing with the pain because that’s what I do, but Cortizone shots stopped working and the doctor recommended that I finally have the surgery.

It Takes Guts To Have An Opinion

It’s hard to get mad at people who take the safe route and withhold their true feelings, in their own names, online. After all, sometimes people will say something that others don’t agree with, and no one wants to be derided for their feelings. These days we have the term “cancel culture”, and it sounds scary. People risk losing their jobs, their friends, and being castigated all over social media; I understand.

Often, it seems the people who fear this the least are those with true hate in their hearts, those who could care less about everyone, only themselves and those like them. Those are the folks who believe it’s always better to be your ugliest self up front, then apologize later and say people took what they had to say out of context, or give a false apology as in “I’m sorry if you were offended by…” Yeah, I bet!

How Much Do I Write?

When I was originally asked the question about how much I write, I thought it was an odd question. My initial inclination was to say that I’m always writing, but that doesn’t actually address the merits of the question.

Writing me

I do write a lot, but not all of it is what I’ll call creative writing, which encompasses writing my blogs, writing blogs for others, writing my articles for marketing and promotion purposes, working on my books, writing for webpages, sometimes writing before creating videos, etc. When I think about it though, most of it is. I thought I’d talk about it a little bit, just so y’all can see what I do with myself most of my days, and hopefully you’ll pick up a nugget or two.
