Finish this sentence: “when I look in the mirror, I…..”
I look in the mirror and tell myself, what were you thinking when you were introducing yourself in the online course? Did you not see there were a lot of paragraphs before the words introduce yourself?
No mirror I did not, either I thought it was there decorating the page or perhaps for the rest of the participants to read and react.
Two days later I’m telling myself, no wonder my brother always accused me of not observing everything around me. This my dear mirror is one I should have been aware of.
Now one hundred forty-nine comments later, I was curious enough to tell myself, now what are all these paragraphs about, introduce yourself shouldn’t be so long.
It’s no use feeling bad, “so mirror next time warn me before I make a mistake of not reading the most important part.” 😦
Remember when you wrote down the first thought you had this morning? Great. Now write a post about it.
First Light: This morning I woke up thinking ‘oh shoot’! I have not done my assignment yet. Most participants have completed and published their replies and now breathing a sigh of relief.
I am probably the only one who did not get my work done. The topic is such I have nightmares thinking about it. I know I can write it if I spend some time organizing my thoughts and then write my reply.
This morning I told myself this is ridiculous, I have to at least attempt it, good or bad once I get it done, I’ll be stress free.
I wrote it, I was aiming at proving lack of equality in certain places and why there is so much chaos there.
I’m feeling great I know no matter how difficult the task was the fact I managed to complete it, I deserve a pat on my back!
Why did you start your blog? Is that still why you blog,or has your site gone in a different direction than you planned?
I started using the computer for my online course, I was busy studying and answering questions at the end of a lesson. One day our facilitator introduced us to the blog of one of our fellow participants, before this I had no idea what blogging meant.When I read his post I was interested, I asked our facilitator, was it possible for me to start blogging. His reply was positive.
I asked my daughter how I could start this, she looked up and found WordPress the best for me. I started slow, I was a novice,I had no idea what to write, I started with short posts and gradually wrote about different things.
I was lucky one of my course participants encouraged me to translate Tagore’s poems. I wasn’t confident but rather than say I cannot do it, I took it as a challenge. I have translated a number of poems of Tagore, and the participant took time to read it and wrote his comment which helped and encouraged me a lot.
I did not plan what I should do next, I registered to do some prompts, I still write them, each morning I wait for the topic and write, I have a small number of people who read my posts, their encouraging comments keeps me going!
