On 20th of May 2012 I wrote my first ever blog. I used Blogger as my platform since this was all I could find and because it looked simple enough! I created ‘Lantern Post’ my first ever blog on Blogger, wrote 17 posts in some 15 days … and got addicted to blogging in the process. Not a big surprise really since I have always been in love with words. I remember being very excited when I published my first blog and taking to my friend about it. I noticed that no reaction was forthcoming so I asked him whether he is actually listening to me. He responded: ‘I am listening to you, but I always knew that you are a writer … you just did not have courage to write.’ It was my turn to be silent.
Few days later and thanks to ‘Lantern Post’ I found about Jeff Goins’ ‘Writer’s Manifesto’ and plethora of other good resources on writing available in blogging community.
However, it was not long before I became annoyed with Google and decide to change to Word Press. So this is my first ever blog on Word Press platform … and yes there is a lot to learn but so far I am enjoying it. I really love how I was able to import all my posts from ‘Lantern Post’ on Blogger platform to ‘Writer’s Cottage’ on Word Press platform.
I am hoping to have at least one visitor in my cottage … scones are served!
