Behind the Scenes with
M. J. Joachim –
Blogging is one of those things we do. We spend countless hours sharing our journey with others, in the hopes they find it interesting enough to come back and visit us again and again. Sure, we know it’s about the numbers – how many page views, comments, ad clicks etc. But all in all, it’s more about putting ourselves out there and hoping someone notices, maybe even enough to say something about what we’ve written or engage in an exchange of a few back and forth comments with us, often exchanged on both of our blogs.
In the beginning… OF BLOGGING. (This post has no intention of being biblical or religious.) Ahem, where was I? Oh yes…
In the beginning, we hem and haw trying to figure out how things work. The more comfortable we get, the better it is, allowing us to focus on our content and formatting a bit more, all the while preventing us from really knowing what is going on. I’ve been blogging for several years. It took most of them to find out that blogger doesn’t like us copying and pasting from word documents. Now all my post are written in txt. docs, copied and pasted in the create post window, then unformatted from my own txt by clicking the blogger Tx tool at the top, and then reformatted using blogger tools.
Pictures were another concern, but I never knew much about how to deal with them. I was happy to copy and paste them to my desktop. Converting them to screen shots hadn’t even occurred to me. It’s something I now try to do, since I’m not sure if glitches are created in my blogs by uploading public domain and free to use photos or not. I’m not sure if the photos I take with my phone to upload create glitches either. So now I take a screen shot and upload photos without all the added code that might cause a problem on my blog.
Before I go, I’d like to leave you with this thought. It’s not Google’s fault. They give millions of us access to a free blog and the use of their networks. We have our own computers, networks and high tech techie things to contend with; sometimes all things being for good, these things miscommunicate with each other, and glitches happen in the translation. So I choose to play it safe and make my content, words and photos, as pure as possible in the hopes that all systems that be will have better communication in the process.
Happy blogging everyone!
Thanks so much for having me today, Phil.
It’s a pleasure visiting your site once again.
