Most of them start with a single thought. Calling it an insight seems pretentious but I guess that’s what it is. This mostly happens first thing as I am just waking up and I reach for my phone and Drafts (my long time favourite and most used app) to grab that thought before it disappears.
I then start riffing on the idea, still in Drafts, still on my phone as I am now, until I run out of steam. Usually almost immediately!
I then revise my wording, correct errors, and usually add lots of line breaks. Someone once, kindly, compared my blog posts to poems and I guess the process is similar – caring about what words are used, what order they come in, and giving them lots of white space and shape to clarify meaning.
I then use a Drafts action to post to WordPress where I add images or links and do a last quick check and tidy up before finally publishing.
Nothing difficult, nothing complicated. Just thought those of you considering blogging might find this useful.
