Blogging, a Tutorial: Vol. 7

I sat down this morning to publish a post I had already written, but something just wasn't clicking. It just didn't feel right... So through my shower and putting on my makeup, I was running other ideas through my brain. Over and over I went, trying to figure out how I could alter that post & make it click.

Then I just hit delete.

Because, minds change. Blogging isn't a scientific field. You don't have to always follow "the plan" - and sometimes you may not have a choice. Changing your mind is okay. Your followers would rather read something meaningful and heartfelt instead of something forced or calculated.

Stay flexible.
Stay open minded.
Have fun.

Don't be afraid to just hit delete every now & then. Sometimes starting wtih a blank canvas is all you need to really be inspired and to really write something worthwhile.


I started Blogging: A Turorial as a way to celebrate my blog's second birthday. If there's ever a topic you want covered - or if you want to contribute - let me know! I'd love to talk to you ♥

  1. I've deleted many a post! Staying flexible is key. I rarely plan my posts and I just write about whatever I'm feeling that day. I can't publish a post I'm not really excited about. And that's what works for me :)
