7 AM, cloudy and sticky-wet. The fog smells like salted fish. We’re expecting a tropical storm. The House Wren continues its daily routine-singing songs, marking its territory.
I’m writing a letter.
…Hello, my non-subscriber!
I hope this letter finds you in a good mood.
I think you’re busy. I assume that you don’t have time to read blogs and you don’t subscribe to anyone. Or maybe, on the contrary, you’ve subscribed to several blogs, but not to mine. This also happens.
You probably read my posts when I share them on social networks. I truly appreciate it.
I always find it difficult to answer the question of what my blog is about. I write it in a lifestyle type. Someone calls it “about everything and nothing”. I support another opinion-the emphasis of such a blog on the individual, his(her) values and interests.
I write about Russia for Americans, about America for Russians, share recipes and funny stories that happened to me, tell what I value in relationships, and a little more about immigration and cultural shock.
You know, blogging is a difficult and very interesting process.
On the one hand, I can write about what I want – this is the main advantage of a blog on the wordpress platform. I pay for hosting and domain address and decide when and what to publish.
On the other hand, I want my stories to be interesting to you, and maybe be useful in some way. At the end of some of them, I ask questions. This is not a fashion statement, but a sincere interest and search for topics for new posts.
You will laugh , but I get answers very rarely, I probably do not know how to ask questions. This is why I constantly self-educate, sign up for various courses and webinars on writing, read books and other bloggers. But most importantly, I write. I write even when I’m told that I have style problems, and the post is so bad that it can’t be edited. And what to do if it is already impossible not to write.
And even the salt-fish-smelling fog whispers to me: go write.
Thank you, my non-subscriber, for all the short minutes you spend on my blog. See you soon!
