This is just a short post that might be fun. 🙂 I hope you enjoy!
1. Why like a post if we don’t read them?
How do we know if we agree with the post?
2. Why follow someone without reading a few posts first?
How do we know if we actually support the blogger? What does that say about us as a (non) reader and blogger?
3. Why are there so many different areas of settings?
It gets confusing.
If we include customizing settings, that’s four. Customize Settings, Comment Settings, Settings, and Account Settings (when you click on your profile pic)
4. Why complain about no one reading the blog, if we aren’t active in the community?
If we aren’t reading other people’s blogs, what gives us the right to complain people aren’t reading ours? We are not entitled.
5. Why isn’t there a magical button to save when we forget to?
And then we lose a portion of our post, and when we click history, or we didn’t save at all. History doesn’t exist, our revisions don’t exist either.
Not like I’m speaking from experience or anything…cough.
6. Why isn’t there a magical button that knows our scheduled post isn’t ready?
This button would be lovely. It would save us from embarrassment and confused readers.
7. Why follow if the next day or few days, we unfollow?
It looks bad. I don’t care who it is, celebrities included. It’s shallow.
8. Why are some bloggers/writers completely self-focused?
Writing, whether blogging or otherwise, should always be about the reader, I think. It’s a gift we can help many with. We might have some self-gain or wants, I can completely understand that, but it can’t be all about us.
9. Why not take the time to learn about blog settings and blogging before making a blog public?
I can relate to wanting to start blogging immediately. But it definitely is helpful to take some time and read about different things, like how to customize a blog and get rid of anything on the blog that shows you just started.
This is your first post. – That stuff.
For this reason, I started posts on blogging 101 and helping other learn about settings.

10. Believing you will be the perfect blogger.
I struggled when I first became a blogger because I didn’t realize the commitment I was making, nor the commitment I needed to give.
It’s okay to not be perfect and to make mistakes (such as some listed.)
What is important is that we do not give up 🙂
If you struggle understanding blogging, you’re not alone. Don’t give up!

Can you relate to anything listed?
