I didn’t think this through at all.
I genuinely signed up for ‘Blogging 101’ to make this a better blog, but then I got all cocky and ‘clever’ and decided that, rather than discreetly following the tasks, I’d be all impudent and witty and openly mock the course like the class clown I always yearned to be…
Oh it got some laughs at the beginning. A few of my ‘class mates’ even joined in. It was all a bit of fun.
But now it’s all gone horribly wrong. Everyone else, while encouraging me to play the fool, has apparently been diligently following the course properly and now we’re coming to the end of the second week (which in ‘Blogging 101’ terms is basically the end of the second year) and the joke’s on me.
The course has suddenly got harder. We’re being expected to build on prior learning. Which is fine if you did any learning in the first place…
I’ve been such an idiot.
Today’s task is:
Write a post that builds on one of the comments you left yesterday. Don’t forget to link to the other blog!
I DIDN’T LEAVE ANY COMMENTS YESTERDAY!
It’s all over, I can’t possibly pass the course now!
I’ll never be a real blogger…
And now for a change of tone…
All of the above is me being insincere. It’s what I do best.
But now a rare moment of sincerity as it turns out I have done all of my homework really.
To date this link is the best thing I’ve read about the noble art of blogging:
