One thing I notice about people, whether in the real world or online, is each one of us has our own unique talents.
You know how it goes.
Some are very artistic and can make a stick figure look like a work of art. Others can take words and spin them into a captivating tale. Some have perfect hand eye coordination and yet others can look at a room and envision a beautiful transformation.
I feel everyone is gifted in at least one area, but I’ve yet to find anyone who can do it all.
Blogging is one of those activities that incorporates many talents.
We not only need to know how to write, but also need knowledge of coding, links, blog security, statistics, SEO (search engine optimization), inserting images, ads, widgets and/or embedding videos into our posts, plus much more.
When I started blogging, I didn’t understand the language of blogging, nor did I understand coding. There was so much I wanted to do with my blog, but for the life of me, I felt I was continually hitting a brick wall.
In some ways I knew just enough to get me in trouble, and when I crashed my blogs, that became even more evident.
With time on my side and with the help of others, I feel I’ve conquered many of my struggles but also realize with the rapid changes in technology, the learning process never ends.
Knowing I’m not alone, I’m sharing one of my early blogging challenges.
It was how to insert an image into a post. For the life of me, I just couldn’t grasp it.
After weeks of trying to wrap my brain around the concept, the light bulb finally went off.
What about you?
Reflecting on your blogging experience, what has been the most difficult part of blogging for you to grasp?
Do you still struggle with it, or is that challenge behind you?
