Okay, so I admit to being a Blogging U addict. First time around I couldn’t find the Commons. Now I can! So much for being a fast learner.
Why did I enroll in my 4th5th (?) Blogging U class?
- I need someone to give me a push.
- I like group projects.
- I like the Commons.
- I like seeing names of bloggers whom I have met before.
- I like meeting new bloggers, whom I have reasonable expectations of meeting again.
- I’m attached to the Blogging U instructors. They are the moorings for my anchor.
Before I began in blogging groups, I had the concept of blogging as writing, but I had no idea of the amount of time I would spend in getting acquainted with others. What were “likes?” What about comments? What are followers? Now I spend more time in making contacts than in writing blogs. And enjoy it! But I didn’t before I knew how much WP cares about offering ways (including the University courses) to help bloggers bond with each other. I felt like a kite with a whirly tail in uncharted cyberspace wondering what was going on around me.
Classmates, I hope you will be curious enough about me to go to my About page, visit my blog, and browse as you wish. Personal information about me will be found in that way. It probably will not take long to find that I am pretty much the “granny” in the group since I am eighty-one years old. But you will also find that I have a wide range of writing styles – from dead serious to deadpan funny. And I might crack a smile on occasion! Meanwhile from the King and I: “Getting to know you, getting to know all about you. Getting to like you, getting to hope you like me. . .”
