DP Daily Prompt: Witness Protection

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

When you do something scary or stressful– bungee jumping, public speaking, –do you prefer to be surrounded by friends or strangers? Why?

Bungee jumping requires a lot of courage,it’s not for people like me. 

I haven’t been involved in public speaking much, the few times I was forced to do it, I preferred not to have my friends surrounding me. Friends have a peculiar habit of making a mental note of the mistakes I made and refuse to let it go. I am comfortable with  the strangers,   I’m not worried about what they’ll say because their criticism  will not reach my ears. At least this is what I hope.

Once in college I was compelled to take the part of the priest in Shakespeare’s, ‘Twelfth Night’ before I came on the scene I was very nervous, I thought I’d faint. When I finally came on and started speaking all those jitters that I had before seemed to disappear.

A friend of mine once remarked, “you shouldn’t be nervous, you taught for a long time”. Somehow it’s not the same feeling. In that scenario, I knew my students well, I spend hours with them five days a week. I am not uneasy.

Give your newer sisters and brothers -in-WordPress one piece of advice based on your experiences blogging. If you’re anew blogger, what one question you’d like to ask other bloggers?

My advice to newer bloggers is to visit all the blogs they can,read the post,leave your comment,make a mental note which ones you can learn from,do not forget the ones where the writer has a great sense of humor, that can be helpful to string along a few to your site, humor in a witty sense, then there are bloggers who have a definite gift of writing poems, uses a wide variety of subjects,note  which one is popular, have a note-book handy to jot down some of the sites where you can get good ideas.

If I was a new blogger,my question would be how long did it take you to increase traffic at your site? Are all these people your friends or are they people you never heard about,if so what kind of writing draws them to your site?
