Day One: Welcome to your first day of blogging!

You’re a blogger!

Time to publish a post that gives readers a sense of who you are.

Today, publish a “who I am and why I’m here” post.

Tell us about you and what we’ll find on your new blog.

Here’s how:

  1. First, think about why you’re blogging.
  2. Be as specific (“to review 1970s Korean sci-fi movies”) or general (“to write about my life”) as you want.
  3. Click the button below to start a new post, and write out your thoughts.
  4. Finally, give your post a few tags and publish it.

Start a new post

Tags are how posts are organized in the Reader.

Use thebloggingfundamentals and first fridays tags to make it easy for other new bloggers to connect with you via the Reader.

Congrats, you’re a published blogger!

Who am I?

Hello, I am John Jr, welcome. Who am I? The ultimate dreamer forced to look at what might have been.

Why am I here?

Good question, for reasons unknown and known including: as part of a routine to help keep myself stable and alive, to record my dreams, to improve my dream recall, for social reasons, to improve my typing (writing), habit (addiction), and more.

Why are you blogging publicly instead of keeping a diary?

So that my blog can be used as a memorial when I die, to have at least one way to connect publicly with others online, in the hope that maybe someone will find some of my posts useful one day, and more.

What topics do you think you’ll write about?

Mostly dreams along with random things that I share in my dream posts, sometimes miscellaneous posts, and sometimes posts related to things from The Daily Post.

Who would you love to connect with via your blog?

My subconscious, some of the dream characters in my dreams, those interested in dreams or my posts or my blog, someone or some group willing to pay me and/or give me a job that I can handle and like and be good at, and more.

If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what do you hope to accomplish?

Blogging every day without missing a day, finding a life worth living, getting a job that I can like and handle and be good at or getting paid to blog my dreams would be nice, and more. 😀

The end,

-John Jr

    • Hello Sissh,

      Yep, definitely a good start, it somewhat reminded me of how the Daily Prompts used to be until they went downhill and started doing nothing but one-word prompts every day so I stopped doing Daily Prompts.

      Thank you for commenting 🙂 ,

      • Yeah it seems something with more depth to it. I remember wanting to do regular daily prompt posts myself after my month long challenge in Feb. but day after day for over a week and a half I did not get inspired and so I stopped checking. (I think they keep it one word to leave room for broader interpretation by each individual but it didn’t quite work for me).
        All the best for the coming days!
