Mistakes I’m making with my blog

What I learned from Giles’ post.

Mistake #1.

It’s all about me.  Instead of: What’s in it for my reader?

Mistake #2.

I post intermittently at best.  Instead of with predictable consistency.

Mistake #3.

I think my layout is boring.  And using big “Mistakes” in this post may be a big mistake.

Mistake #4.

I don’t engage much with other people.  Every time I write a post I need to find someone else’s post I like and write an encouraging comment to them.

Mistake #5.

I don’t have a list of ideas I can write about when I don’t have ideas.  I need to be receptive to ideas as well as generate them and put them in One Note as they come to me.

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.

  1. I love your blog!! Since I am on an “internet break” I usually don’t comment, but your posts have truly inspired me. 😀 I’ll be reading more. Keep writing! These mistakes are all very familiar to me (some in use now by me, haha). I’m thankful we can learn from those mistakes, and that Jesus’ truth can shine through even still. Jesus bless!
