As a blogger I have never been able to keep up. It is hard keeping a blog. It is very easy to underestimate how much work and time it is to keep up a blog. I have learned many different things that will help with me with my future blogging and my future writing.
My first struggle was setting up my blog. There are many different places you can start your blog. I had never worked with WordPress before, this made it challenging to figure out how it worked. As i played with different styles and themes things got more familiar.
After having the blog distinguished with a theme and layout, I had to begin the process of actually using the blog and wring . As I would write a blog post I was not sure how all the functions of a blog really worked. I would forget to tag the post on put it into one or more categories. Once having the post in the category I wasn’t understanding how they were displayed. I had to play with how things appeared and were tagged. It defiantly was a process of understanding with watching tutorial and trail and error to get my blog to look like it does now.
It has been fun exploring the theme of my blog. I as I have written on different topics I have found out many things that I didn’t write about. I would have an idea for one blog post and search it but found a different topic and write on it. I have learned a lot about Lake Tahoe and things to do in the area. I would suggest people to write a blog of a place that they just moved to. Writing the blog forces you to try new things, if not try them research things that you can do in the new place you have moved to.
My multimedia skills have incensed with this blog. I have used Google Maps to make maps with pins and locations, I also used other platforms that have increased the usage of social media to help get my blog out there. There are many different types of media that you can use besides just photos, there is audio and links that can help support your blog post.
My blog on Tahoe has help push my adventurous side. I have made sure I went skiing, it wasn’t hard to do because I wanted to ski, but I wanted to be connected to the things I wrote about in someway. I haven’t been to South Lake for it’s nightlife but i have friends tell me about where they have gone and where to go, that has helped. I so plan to take a trip to South Lake to experience it for myself.
As I continue at Sierra Nevada College, I plan to continue to keep up with my Lake Tahoe blog. How could I not, I go to school where people vacation. My family, friends, and others want and should know what this place has to offer. There are plenty of adventurous things to do here but there are also things that for a person who might not call them the adventurous type would do.
Come to Tahoe. Visit, see, and experience the amazing Tahoe for yourself, it might just chance your life.
