Random AGMA lesson’s learned in 2+ years of blogging in no particular order:
- Don’t blog while drunk. I won’t tell you which ones…
- The word spam is as popular as penis (tallywhacker) and vagina (she-she) when it come to searches. Almost. An AGMA post with spam in the title got like 200 views in one day.
- Almost nobody out there cares that I like to watch Men’s Elite Professional Cycling. I totally don’t get that.
- No matter how hard AGMA tries to answer the questions that are part of those blogging awards, it never works out. But THANK YOU for nominating me!! I meant it when I said it was a huge honor!
- Writing is way more fun when you don’t have somebody grading your work. Way. More. Fun.
- AGMA followers aren’t quite as anal about how I write as my high school English teachers.
- Blogging friends are sorely missed when they stop blogging. So don’t stop!
- WordPress Blogging 101 is a lot of work. Someday I’ll finish it. Yeah, right…
- I will never make it beyond WordPress Blogging 101.
- When you get Freshly Pressed and are on the WordPress Recommended Blogs List, you get lots and lots and lots of followers. THANK YOU WordPress!!!
- Most Freshly Pressed and Recommended Blogs List followers never actually read your blog.
- When you get removed from the WordPress Recommended Blog List, the follows slow down to a trickle. But those folks actually read your blog.
- Sometimes it’s best not to overthink starting a blog. Just pick a cool name, sit down and start writing.
- AGMA can be funny, but not nearly as funny as some of you out there. Please keep me laughing!
- There is never enough time to read the blogs I love. I hate that…
- Bloggers (at least the one’s who follow AGMA) are some of the nicest, most caring people in the world. Crikey, it’s getting deep in here.
- When you only post once a week, it keeps ‘em wanting more. Right? Hello? (crickets)
- When your friends and family don’t know you author a blog, the possibilities are endless. Take from that what you will…
- Never, ever say, “Blogging seems so stupid. I mean, who cares?” Gulp.
- Blogging just might connect you with some part of yourself you’d lost touch with or didn’t even know existed.
21. Blogging really is cheaper than therapy. Or a good adjunct.
