Mini-Challenge #5: Letter to Yourself
For this challenge, I’m going to write a letter to my past and future blogging self…because I can’t pick just one. Surely the other would feel left out?!
Dear past and future blogging persona Michelle,
I know that you have had a lot of experience playing around with websites your entire life. Remember that play-by-post role playing game you created in the sixth grade, where people could ‘attend’ Hogwarts classes? While that HTML coding you used back then was probably up-to-par with most sites, you should really try to keep up with progress. Because before you know it, you’ll know next to nothing about how to achieve the web designs you desire. And it’s really hard to find the time to learn and experiment with everything else on your to-do list.
When picking a blog name, while you want it to be something that you will be happy for a long time, it might help if it was a little more focused or required less explaining. Easy advice there.
Don’t worry about the small things, but you might want to focus more on becoming at least a little more polished. And you might also want to reach out more to the rest of this blogging community everyone seems to rave about. I know you’re on the shy and socially awkward side, but no one is going to reach out to you unless you reach out to them. Friends don’t just happen; so work on that.
And definitely be open to growing the blogging community however which way suits you best. Keep bringing in contributors–they’re amazing!!
And most importantly, don’t lose the love for reading that you’ve always had. You should really make sure that one hobby doesn’t overshadow the other.
Wow, I surprised myself there!
