Blogging Distinction

Writing a blog is a creative way to spend your time and if you consider yourself to be a writer, this could be a productive experience for you.  Blogging topics are usually random, changing with the daily prompts, or wherever you derive your inspiration from, making this a more free-form style that is always subject to change.  It will allow you to try new things, but being exposed to new forms, does not have to make you more accident-prone, although you may stumble not knowing exactly what you are doing at times.  Blogging is certainly a less formal type of writing and that could help your writing to become more alive, but if you are not careful with the topics that you chose to blog about, it could also make you more boring.  Blogging is an outlet that allows you to share your words with others and your writing could be viewed like it is being broadcast out to the whole world.  I can see how someone trying to make a valid point about blogging would use a simile to make their description more emphatic or vivid, as they compare extreme sports with blogging.  Extreme sports have a way of evoking positive emotions from the athletes that participate in them, and this also happens sometimes when you are blogging.

Written for Blogging Insights New Format #40 by Dr. Tanya where she asks us what we think about today’s quote by Andrew Sullivan, which is “Blogging is to writing what extreme sports are to athletics: more free-form, more accident-prone, less formal, more alive.  It is, in many ways, writing out loud.”

    1. I write in the same challenges all the time and the reason I do that is because I like the way that they are hosted. The topics are constantly changing even though the challenges stay the same.

  1. My problem is picking the right song, tv show, event, or movie…I only pick ones I like. I know some bloggers who sometimes blog about things they don’t like…I never could do that.

    1. Lucky for you, there are a lot of songs, shows, events, and movies to choose from. I have written about things that I don’t like, but I rarely give my personal opinion on things, and I like being sarcastic.

      1. Well sometimes Jim… I’m sure this happens to all of us… I’m sitting in front of a screen and I nothing seems interesting. I’ll do that until something inspires me… that is why I get so far ahead…at least a week or two.

      2. I thought about it when I finish this TV draft…it’s taken some of my time.
        I want to do power pop songs again…they are harder though since there is not a lot of info on the less known bands.
