There are so very many fun challenges on WordPress. Some offer creative writing topics, poetry and photography too.
I am enjoying an ever widening circle of friends and interests BUT there are only so many minutes afforded for me to use creatively.
Finally, this week, I am feeling as though I have stepped from newbie to intermediate blogger. It took much dabbling and time. Many kind fellow bloggers have offered their advice and knowledge helping me along. So this is my “two cents” to others. 🙂
Many challenges ask for committed responses…taking time.
Awards are so special but …take time to post and re-post.
Poetry, photography, and story writing have called to me from different directions. For short spurts, I specialized in them. This helped me to find my voice and polish my technical blogging skills. I still have much to learn…
This message is to other bloggers in the same quandary. Not enough time? Don’t feel guilty…write on!
I think dabbling is the right thing to do. My advice is not to get “roped” into any one venue. Dabble, dabble dabble your way forward.

Susan – I’m half way through writing a post very similar to this! Can’t believe you are having such similar thoughts. I’m finding that my blogging traffic, replies, awards, etc etc are squeezing my own creative time. I have been feeling guilty when I don’t respond to someone, but then frustrated when I give so much time to others and end up with little creative time left for me. Have to find a balance. Hope to have my post up soon. Thank you for your thoughts.
That is a cool coincidence! Anyone who loves to write, does not hold their breath waiting for responses. They go on writing. I’ve vowed not to ever feel guilty because those “on the same page” (pun intended) don’t care about such things. 🙂
Dabble away, my friend! I think being part of this blogging community gives us validation.
