Blogging 101: First Assignment — Introducing Myself

with 6 comments

This is my first attempt at learning about blogging from an established tutor (or group of tutors) so I’m a tad nervous.  never know if I’m doing it correctly or not

Here goes. My name is Steve and I’m an essayist (of sorts). Actually, I don’t know if ‘essayist’ is the proper term; I write whatever appeals to me at the time. This covers a wide variety of subjects and topics of interest (mostly to me). I’ve been blogging, off and on, for about four years and have not been consistent in the practice. That’s one of the reasons I signed up for this course. . .consistency. I have none.

To give you some idea of how I view my efforts on this site, I encourage you to read “About Walking the Cat”. I think it’s pretty clear on what I do and why I do it.

That’s about it.  BTW, to those who read my blog on a more or less regular basis, I apologize for intruding with this assignment.

  2. I’m taking the Blogging 101 course, too — haven’t been too active with it yet, but I saw your comment to Random Weekly’s post there and thought it was lovely and generous. Glad to discover your writing.

  3. Hi Steve,

    I read pretty much everything posted here and I am impressed by your level of writing. I mostly enjoyed “The Pump”, along with your piece on “Writing”. I can relate to that one.

    I will now follow you. Oh! And I enjoyed your comments yesterday. One could see that you had more than some experience in writing and posting. Please keep them coming!

  4. It has always been my view that consistency is the playground of simple minds. I first heard it worded that way on an episode of “Law and Order” by Fred Thompson and while I am not a fan of Mr. Thompson. It has been my experience that wisdom can be found in the most unlikely places.

    • “Consistency is the playground of simple minds.” I like that, very much. Undoubtedly, it will turn up somewhere in a future post. Thanks. BTW, I agree with you on all points. -S-
