Human growth theory suggests that we all go through stages of development. Do you suppose that blog writers have their growth stages too? I think so. We are not born fully mature bloggers. It seems to me that it must take a while to find your own blogging style, to find your VOICE. I read recently that a writer needs to write 4 or 5 novels before truly finding his/her voice. I wonder how many blogs I have to write before I find my authentic blogging voice?
I found a blog yesterday that keeps me coming back- it’s funny, informative and visually appealing.It’s natural and real. www.upcyclededucation.com When I read it I feel like Jen Lara is in the room with me..chatting away. I can hear her voice and her laugh.
Jen has an authentic blogging voice. I want to be like Jen when I mature as a blogger. Where do I find my voice? What other blogs illustrate such authenticity?
Just when I think I’ve got it. I am really on to something! a better understanding of blogging. I read something that blows me out of the water. A link shared by an #etmoocer, Ary Aranguiz,@trendingteacher, to a blog written by Alan Levine,. He wrote, (blogging)” it’s really for me. Not to be found or anything, but for mw to be working out ideas in a visible space– it just makes sense to me”. So do I write for me or for an audience? or both?
