How To Find Time To Write

How to find time to write advice tips blogger life

Writers are faced with many challenges. What topic? Word count? Grammatical errors? Should this go on my lifestyle blog or autobiography? What the heck am I going to write about today?

Was my last post more depressing than humorous? 

But the biggest challenge of all is finding time to write, to consult the muse, and tap at that keyboard. Here are some tips of the trade.

Taking A Sick Day {Feel Free To REBLOG}

Sick day blogger blog life lifestyle humor funny

I am taking a sick day, dear readers.

It is shocking—I know—that I, practically a superhero by trade, could possibly get sick. I mean. What is wrong with the universe? What has this world come to?

I have the heart of a T-rex. I am supposed to be invisible.

Thoughts Bloggers Have

Thoughts Bloggers Have. Humor

Bloggers are a special kind of people. We speak through our fingers. We create pictures with words. We’re like YouTubers, with a keyboard.

We don’t know when to quit with the metaphors and similes…

The idea for this post hit me—as most posts tend to do—as I was staring at a roll of toilet paper. I wondered how bad, on a scale of 1-10, my latest post really was and realized these are thoughts all bloggers must have after, during, and before writing a blog post for all the internet to see.

Out poured this list.

10 Stages Of Writing A Book

10 stages to writing a book

I haven’t made a specific announcement that I’ve been writing a book. I know my tagline is Something to read as I work on my next novel. It alludes to the fact that I’m writing a book.

Anyhow. I, Rebekah Koontz, have written a book.

My First Vlogmas Experience

The things I learned my first vlogmas experience

This past December, I took you along with me on twenty-five days of my life.

Twenty-five days of my awkward face.

Those who watched seemed to enjoy it. Friends say they binge watched! So the videos aren’t boring!

I’d never done Vlogmas. I’d never done a vlog. I knew only the basics in YouTube editing. I was out of my mind to agree to this thing.

And now, I’m here to tell you what I learned.

5 Tips For Newbie Bloggers

5 Tips for newbie bloggers

When I look back at my years as a blogger, I’m filled with a sad cliché.

If I knew then what I know now. . .

It’s horrible. I hate participating in clichés. I try very hard to be a unique, interesting individual.

If you are just starting as a blogger, I want to share some invaluable tips and explanations that would’ve helped me when I was a baby blogger. Let’s dive right in, starting with twitter.

What Blogging Has Done To Me

What Blogging Has Done To Me

I was inspired by Jenny In Neverland’s post, “How Blogging Has Changed My Life.” My eyes flicked across the title, and my mind whirred, beeped, and came to life.

Except, my brain works differently than most people’s.

Most people check and make sure they have milk for the sauce, before cooking the pasta. I’m not like that.

I thought of a completely different direction to Jenny’s post. My thoughts grew more complex. My smile spread, and I knew I had to write it. Except, I’m calling my post What Blogging Has Done To me.

Need A Blog Critique?

Need a blog critique? Critique for critique

I went to Twitter and proposed a blog critique in exchange for a blog critique. I asked if anyone was interested. A few responded.

Honestly, I had such a good time getting to know people and checking out new blogs that I want to do it again. But this time it’s more official than a Tweet. It’s a blog post. Way more serious.

Oooh Rebekah’s getting serious. . .

What I Imagine The Blogging World To be

The Blogosphere is a beautiful place. Neighbors are friendly and encouraging (as long as you keep to appropriate hashtags). Backgrounds are white. And there are always fresh flowers. Everywhere. Long stemmed and vibrant in porcelain vases on the breakfast nook.

The Blogosphere smells good, like Bath and Body Works mixed with the smells of home. In the Summer, it smells of watermelon lemonade. In the Fall, it smells of pumpkin spice and leaves. But nothing beats the smell of the Blogosphere in Christmas time. Mmm…

This place is a community. We each pull our weight, and we pull together. We sit in a circle on folding chairs and pass The Talking Stick around. We listen and respond and are never harsh.

We’re all in this together.

Blog Anniversary! — My Thoughts On WordPress vs. Blogger

Blog Anniversary my thoughts on wordpress vs blogger

According to WordPress, today is my Blog Anniversary! Cake all around! You must congratulate me. I never pay attention to things like this, so I’m glad WordPress does. This teeny notification sent me reminiscing through time, and I wanted to know how long I have actually been blogging. I checked my WordPress stats.
