Journal : Blogging Experiment, Commit and Make a Plan


Hello awesome friends, I’m going to attempt to post something every day with set topics:

Culture Sunday,
Feminist Monday,
Nonfiction Tuesday,
Art Wednesday.
Creative Nonfiction Thursday,
Poetry Friday,
Alternative Healing Saturday.

I’m going to probably write shorter articles haha, but I feel compelled to devote regular time to writing and posting, both to improve my technical skills, and commit to the creative path by actually writing!

I got this idea of writing by topic every day by a writer on Medium. I started reposting articles from Seoul Sister out of curiosity and to potentially gain more exposure on a new site. So far, it’s been a somewhat hostile experience with negative comments, well just one but it’s also my only comment. Have you written on Medium? What do you think of it? I feel safe here at wordpress, thanks for your support.

What do you think? Do you write every day? Do you publish frequently and re-edit?

  1. I haven’t tried Medium but I know one friend who writes on there. I’m sorry to hear about your negative experience; a hostile environment is the worst when it comes to the written word. Our blogs are personal in nature – whether we share personal stories or not – because we are writing what we are thinking and feeling. And for that to be judged harshly, well, it doesn’t make for an inviting or healthy blogosphere. I must say, the WordPress community has been largely supportive and encouraging of all, which is to be applauded!

    Good luck with the daily prompts – I think it’s a great way of getting into the habit of writing regularly. 🙂

    1. Sindhuja Manohar thank you for your supportive response 🌷.

      I agree, a hostile comment creates an unhealthy environment and creates a feeling of vulnerability, but I suppose it says more about the commenter’s state of mind. The commentor didn’t have a profile photo, he seemed to be hiding his identity so he could critique others. Yes, the WordPress community has been so sweet, I feel protected here.

      The prompts have been helpful so far, I hope I can keep the momentum going!

      1. Well then, he seems to have been a troll of sorts, so you can ignore that. 🙂

        Either way, keep writing here!

      2. Yes, I think he was a troll. Medium might help me to have a thicker skin hopefully, but I prefer WordPress.
