Most blog posts are essentially the distillation of a few relevant articles that have been condensed and improved (hopefully) by the current author. Most blog posts and pages are therefore a sort of Readers Digest with illustrations. This is a good approach and it’s a methodology that I am signed up to. I talk about in one of the posts on this site.
What’s the Blog Idea?
We are all human beings, and human beings love to learn about stuff. We love to learn new stuff and we love to learn old stuff. We also love to share the stuff we learn with others. We are always learning and we share knowledge about the stuff we learn. We share knowledge about the world around us, about sciences, social sciences, history, mathematics and so on.
Sometimes we share the knowledge we gain through our experiences, but I guess that depends on the experience – obviously! Looking back, I have to say that if we do learn from our mistakes … I must have learned loads!
It’s easy to see that the history of human beings is knee-deep in examples of learning and sharing. We might now consider ourselves to be living in the Information Age, but let’s not forget the efforts and the enthusiasm of the Victorians, and whilst we may be forgiven for forgetting the darkness of the Dark Ages, we should not forget that before that … even cavemen blogged!
Blogging is the modern equivalent of cave painting. Knowledge and experience distilled and presented for the benefit of others.
How do I approach Blogging?
Humans and learning and sharing go hand-in-hand. It’s the human ability to store that learning and to pass that learning on that lifts humankind up beyond the purely biological. As a species, we can pass what we learn on to our children – and future generations. We can also share what we learn amongst our own generation.
We create knowledge, we save knowledge, we share knowledge and we advance knowledge … and that’s Blogging!
I am approaching this Blogging thing methodically. I set out to write a blog about writing a blog because I thought my background and experience – I mention it on the About page – could add some value to the stuff that was already out there. I began by collecting information from around the Internet and then I read it. I did the research and I discovered that most bloggers blogging about building blogs were blogging from a position of blogging expertise. As I tried to follow their instructions, I quickly realised that there were these gotchas that no one mentioned. Not only that, but the gotchas even had their own sub-gotchas. If I am to add value, I need to focus on the gotchas. I am going to take one step back and instead of writing a blog about writing a blog, I am going to be writing a blog about writing a blog about writing a blog. I shall, therefore, be approaching this challenge differently.
Blogging Reading and References
Each blog post and page in beginner.beginner.beginner.beginner.beginner.beginner.beginner.beginner.blooger.me is a distillation of similar, related stuff that I have found on the Internet and in books. The sharing of knowledge is important, so I am providing hyperlinks to all resources used by me. You, the reader, can then follow the research and the line of thinking for yourself, should you choose to. The references appear below, grouped according to the original page title. Where possible, they will also be linked from the page on which they appear.
