My Blogging Career?

Please share a brief history of your blogging career –
From what lead you to start?
Has your motivation changed since starting?
What has the experience been like?
Have you learnt anything?
Has your writing style changed?
What advice would you give to a new blogger?
And please don’t forget to mention some of the highlights along the way – such as the people you’ve met, things you’ve learnt
and please get creative about your presentation, do it in your favourite genre?

The time was right when I need new challenge
I was then doing some online classes
One option was to blog and I then plunge

Learned a lot from them, what to do en masse?
Just wanted to give it a go, I thought
My blogging has limitations, alas

Met lots of new bloggers and what they taught
New styles, new topics, more laughs and more fun
All these things and sometimes I’m overwrought

Photos, fiction, limericks, poems – done
Haiku, flash fiction, weird photos and more
Anything under the sun and the pun

Things I have written, hope I’m not a bore
Sorry if I’ve offended anyone
If I’ve stepped over, just give me a roar

Has been two years and I’ve got a good run
Carry on as it’s still half full my glass
I’m still enjoying it, I know I’ve won

And so to the blogging world, I’m still here
Got a lot of things to learn through the years
The time was right when I need new challenge
One option was to blog and I then plunge*
