A friend of mine was recently offered a blogging opportunity. I say blog, blog, blog away. I absolutely love the blog! Of course, his opportunity comes without pay, to which I reply: Do your own blog.
Blogging is absolute freedom. It’s a writer’s dream. Unedited, uncensored, unassigned. You write what you want, when you want. And people can read you when they want. The ultimate platform. Not only do you get to express yourself, but you get feedback, and from total strangers who one way or another become your friends.
The blog is also a completely free way to deliver a message. Some people like humor, some like drama, poetry, others review films, but in the blog you get to read things that don’t show up in the traditional publication. Where else will I read about things that annoy a mother on a Tuesday afternoon? Ha! Only in the blog. So my dear friend or anyone else who is considering doing their own blog: YES! Do it! Don’t wait! WordPress is free!
