How to be a Better Blogger: Closing Words


OKAY, SO I HAVE TO EXPLAIN. This series was originally going to have three more episodes – when I drafted my ideas, that’s what came out. But quick confession, guys: I OVERSHOOT THINGS SOMETIMES. Looking at my draft for the series, I realize that I’ve pretty much said everything I wanted to say. Which leads us to the last post! *WEEPING EMOJIS*

If you haven’t seen the other installments of my How to be a Better Blogger series, or if you just love me so much you want to go back and read them again (WHO ARE YOU?? <3) check them out.

Read previous installments:


Guys, I’m going to be totally honest – when I first started this series, I had no idea what kind of response I would get. I try to enter into everything with a sense of humbleness – because I’m just a student on crazy adventure called life and I know it. I’m still learning. I don’t profess to be an expert in anything (much less blogging) and so I’m very happy to say that I feel like this series hasn’t been so much of a “YOU SHOULD DO THIS, PADAWAN.” and more of a “Hey, what’s your opinion of this? It worked really well for me.” I LOVE DISCUSSING THINGS WITH YOU GUYS. I LOVE KNOWING ALL THE OPINIONSSSS.

So thank you. Thank you for coming this far. Thank you for reading all my ramblings-on. Thank you for flailing and squeaking and fangirling over my Downton Abbey GIFs. I SERIOUSLY DON’T KNOW HOW TO SAY IT COHERENTLY BUT YOU GUYS MAKE MY WORLD GO ‘ROUND. KAY?? You make me SOOOO ridiculously happy with all your support and friendship. :’)

 


Let’s talk about this, ONE MORE TIME! What did you think of this series? Do you feel like you’ve learned anything from it? What could have done to IMPROVE it?? What topics would you like to see me do a series on in the future? (I know I have one request drifting around for a series on what my “music production” process looks like!! *SQUEAK*)

YOU’VE MADE THIS FAR. HERE IS A LITERAL (VIRTUAL) WAFFLE.

love,
abbie

  7. MUSIC PRODUCTION WOULD BE SO COOL. Because, like, music is awesome. And I know nothing about the progress. Zeroooo. AND YOUR MUSIC IS QUITE GREAT SO THE PROCESS WOULD BE SO INTERESTING. So much excitement with that yesss.

    I feel like I might've missed the first few episodes of this blogger series? (I say "episode" like it's a TV show or something. Well, it's basically just as entertaining, sooo. xD) So I should go back and read them. *nodnod*

    Okay so I just binge-read a ton of your blog posts on blogging. #sorrynotsorry You are absolutely AMAZING!

    I love what you said about whitespace. YES. I'm nodding furiously with every single thing you say. :)

    Music! Oh my, I love it. I'm a musician too. And a blogger. And writer. And Jesus-lover. I'm so thrilled I found your blog and I can't wait to come back!

  10. The end?! I've definitely learned from this series, yes, and I'm looking forward to whatever else you decide to talk about next. I really like how your posts are discussions rather than 'let me show you what to do,' by the way. :)

    I've also just caught up on your last few posts, so I must add: I'm still chewing over everything in your mission statement. It resonates with me so much, because I don't fit into one category. I can't just pick one thing to spend the rest of my life doing. And I really like how you brought it all back to our Saviour - He did everything, and that's how He made us too. It's freeing. Thanks so much for sharing your heart on that subject!

    And your post on how to feel good about your writing was super encouraging, and I might have to find and read 'How To Be Here'.

    Anyway, I really will stop now. :) Have the best day! xx

      Oooh yay! I'm so happy you read and liked the mission statement thingsss. ^.^ *dances around excitedly* "He did everything, and that's how He made us too. It's freeing." << EEEEEP YESS!! I couldn't agree more, Jessica!! thank you so much for reading. It makes my heart burst with happiness to see that my words mean something to others. :')

      THANK YOU SO MUCH EEEEP. Yes, you should totally read How to be Here! I highly recommend it. :) HAVE THE BESTEST DAY OF EVER, TOO, GIRL!!

  11. YAYY WAFFLES!! Although I am sad it's finished. I love your posts...aaaalll your posts. And I think you write so easily and relatably and just afjdsakld it's really fun and good to read. And also made me feel good because I was doing a lot of your suggestions already so it was a "OMG RELIEF I'M DOING THE THING RIGHT" moment. hahhah. Because -- truth now -- I have no idea what I'm doing like 94% of the time. Hmm. CAIT. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER. Ahem.

    Improvements? Honestly. Not enough waffles. You're only giving them to us NOW???? Shame. (Actually you mentioned chocolate a lot though so at least there's that. All can be forgiven.)

    Eeep a music production one sounds AMAZING. :D

kind words are like raindrops on the desert. they make me bloom with happiness, as absolutely cliche and cheesy as that sounds. even if it's just a simple alt+3 i will heart you for it. so, go ahead! MAKE MY DAY. literally.
