What’s the most important( or interesting, or unexpected) thing about blogging you know today that you didn’t know a month ago.

I started blogging over two years ago. I had no idea what it was or what the word meant, fortunately a participant from my online course started blogging. I read his post and thought how remarkable, one can actually write posts on different subjects and people take time to read it and write their comments. This is awesome I whispered to myself. Then it occurred to me can I write something too,and will other bloggers read my post?

I asked my online course facilitator if I also could  start blogging like Robert? He said,”yes you should.”

I asked my daughter she signed me up with WordPress, according to her it is the best one. I started blogging in June 2012.

What I learned is unbelievable, writing posts, poetry or prose anything goes. Then there are prompts supplied by WordPress daily, which is awesome, it requires a little bit of thinking,once I got used to it, I wrote as much as my brain would co-operate, sometimes a whole lot,  other times not so much.

I sometimes wonder about my blogger friend Leslie and Sonya, I don’t know how they come up with such great poems, my writing looks pale compared to theirs, I’m contented with what I can do. You know everyone cannot do as well as Wordsworth, Shakespeare or William Henry Davies, I certainly am not in their league, I enjoy it, thinking I must be thankful for what I can do.

The above is my story of blogging, my thanks to Robert for showing me the way, to Leslie who is always encouraging me.I’m grateful to my friends, who read my posts regardless of how good or bad they are,only because Ranu wrote it and we must continue to follow her blog,is I think what motivates them!

365 Writing Prompts: What’s your learning style?

What’s your learning style? Do you prefer learning in a group and in an interactive setting? Or one-to-one?  Do you retain information best through lectures, or visuals, or simply by reading books?

Learning in a group while it seems to be a good way to learn, it gets boring when one know it all continues to talk forgetting there are others who may have something to say about the subject.

I encountered this in meetings when two teachers would start talking about unrelated things and waste everyone’s time, those were the times I felt we were not learning much.

As regards one-on- one it only happens when one has specific problems which is dealt by the instructor after school hours. I didn’t have to stay after school.

If there was anything I missed I’d either read books to find my answer,or read my notes, most of the time I take notes of important points during the lecture then read  them later to make sure I know what the topic was about.

I prefer to read books, to me books are the best way to learn, I can read it alone in my room with no interference from anyone!
