So, I’ve been blogging for a while now and thought I’d explore my experience through Tarot cards…
Page Of Swords: The writer. I’ve been writing novels for a long time and am getting closer to the finish line (maybe?) It was suggested to me last year that all writers should have a social platform. So I started a blog.
Seven Of Wands: Blogging. I hammered away at it.
Eight Of Pentacles: Process. Made sure that I posted regularly as recommended by other bloggers.
Knight Of Swords: In fact I posted everyday which is over and above what most bloggers do. Which meant a lot of hard thinking everyday.
Nine Of Wands: Perseverance. Kept going even when I wasn’t ‘discovered’ immediately (an expectation which now makes me LMFAO).
Seven Of Pentacles: Reflected on the situation.
The Hermit: Sought advice from other bloggers online.
Death: Changed blogging platforms and started advertising a little.
The Tower: Gained some followers.
The Sun: This was a big moment for me. It was the first time in my life I could say I was a published writer. It meant a lot. The Sun card represents being re-born and that’s how it feels. Like I’ve finally been ‘born’ as a writer.
Three Of Wands: Adding a new string to my bow. Started a Facebook page
Ten Of Swords: Felt exhausted trying to blog everyday and wasn’t convinced that what I had to say in those circumstances was always worthwhile.
Four Of Swords: Had a break from blogging.
Seven Of Pentacles: Some more reflection.
High Priestess: Instead of blogging everyday like a machine I decided to blog only when I had something worthwhile to say.
The World: I’m overjoyed with the reaction I’ve had to this blog. No-one says very much but I’ve had a steady increase in followers which is fantastic. Many blog and get no response at all. It doesn’t seem to matter how often I post so long as I post regularly which is great because I feel like the quality of the posts has improved since I slowed down and focussed a bit more on what I’m saying. I certainly enjoy writing them more when I’m awake. I believe it’s much more important what you say than how often you say it. We are all overloaded with information as it is.
Thank you for your support (feel free to join in the conversation anytime!) and good luck with your own blogging adventures!
