These last three weeks that I have been doing WordPress’s Blogging 101 University have been nothing else but extraordinary.
I personally went from dreaming of having a blog (while knowing absolutely nothing about how to do it, and being probably the most technologically challenged one participating in the course – well, I have to come first in something, right?) to actually being a blogger (ah!ah! you wish…). Well there is a blog, and you are reading it (so far) so am I a blogger or not?
I did learn a lot, and I mean a LOT, I still have issues with some of the most basic stuff but I know that I will get there eventually.
I have been falling behind on the daily assignments because almost all of them require us to read other blogs. And that is an incentive that I probably would do best without. You see the problem is I love to read, and every time I stumble upon a new blog that interests me ( and there is no shortage of interesting ones out there, and this even among the ones just starting out) I fall in and wan t to do nothing else but read.
And then time has this strange capacity of running faster when you are having fun, and suddenly I find that it is time to feed the family – oh my! why don’t they just read? why do they insist on eating food? – or go pick up the teenage daughter at the movies, or take the dogs for a walk , and guess what ? You have not even started working on your assignment.
So today, after a few days of feeling really stressed out about it, and somewhat guilty – because everyone else is producing awesome work every day – I accepted that I must do this my way “the turtle way” and go slow. I learn best that way and I certainly do not need any more stress in my life right now.
So I will do what I can when I can to the best of my possibilities and I will still reach the finish line oh yes I will 😉
Turtle Hugs (and thank You for reading me) 🙂
