Zero to Hero: Day Seventeen

  1. I've enjoyed this task but it has lead to a bit too much reading around and a bit of a late night last night when I really need more sleep! Plus I'm following several more people now. :)

  2. It has been great to read the posts of unknown writers, and to engage with them; I have discovered some new, and very talented, bloggers this way.
    I am really enjoying Zero to Hero: it has already taught me a great deal about the more technical side of blogging - a weakness of mine, I confess - and I am now able to create a more personal look to my blog.
    Thank you!

  3. This was a fun challenge! Commented on several new blogs and connected with several new bloggers. Very time consuming but worth every minute.

  4. Glad to hear y'all are making some good connections! It *is* a bit time consuming, but engaging with others is a great (and really important) blogging habit to cultivate.

    I see that today's instruction is to join one of the online groups, Facebook, twitter etc. Count me out. I've no wish to have a facebook page I find taking part in 4 widely different online forums, writing my blog and reading other peoples' blogs and commenting on them more than sufficient. I know some people like it, but to me twitter is for twits. I've heard it described as standing in the middle of a pub and shouting your opinions to all and sundry. I've read too many stories about people writing a tweet that was meant for a few close friends and because they pressed a wrong key it was broadcast to the whole world. There are also tales of tweets that "went viral" . Anyway what can you say that is worth saying in the limited number of characters twitter allows ? No thanks.

    Don't know how my post has appeared twice. My apologies.
    But it does underline the point I made about pressing a wrong key!

    . Count me out. I've no wish to have a facebook page I find taking part in 4 widely different online forums, writing my blog and reading other peoples' blogs and commenting on them more than sufficient.

    I'm with you on that and I'm LOL :D because Twitter is the only social network I use. And, I have the audacity to use it exactly the way I want to use it ie. to tweet links to posts of my own and my followers posts for promotional purposes. I do not socialize on Twitter as recommended by all the experts, who are flogging their goods and services behind the veil of sharing what they ate today or comments about the weather or posting images of their kids, cats and dogs. Even if if I had the time to "share" the likelihood I would anything at all personal online there or on my blogs is next to zero. Why? Because I have real life close friends I share with face-to-face. So don't feel pressured into marching to the beat of the blosgophere drums. Set your own tune by beating your own drum.

  9. Didn't write the post on the daily promt. I have written a post one day later intstead: http://mamarazzablog.wordpress.com/2014/01/19/musical-hell-and-heaven/
    It's about music and emotions it can cause. I also used a quotation as it was asked in the task.

  10. NOTE: Zero to Hero forum threads will close after five days. If you're just starting out, welcome! Feel free to visit a more recent thread to say hello, ask questions, or seek feedback. Happy blogging!
