The very first blog post – what was yours?

This month (well until my honeymoon :D), I will be participating in Blogme MAYbe. This wonderful idea is the brainchild of SaraMcClung and is a weekly blog format with an easy schedule to follow. For more information and join the fun (you can at any time!), simply click on the banner created by the super-duper-talented Tracey

On Wednesdays, the prompt is: May I ask something about you?

I started blogging less than a year ago (in September)…I wanted to connect somehow and I wanted to practice writing in another setting. However, I wasn´t quite sure at the time what my blog posts would be about. I started thinking I´ll write funny stories about my commuting and I ended up changing along the way, focusing more on my writing/reading and on the little/big events of life. So while I am still “commutinggirl”, I don´t talk a lot about my actual commute. It only pops up from times to times.

My first blog post was entitled: Starting point – The one who likes to sit down but does not want anybody sitting next to her 

What was yours? and when was it? What did you learn along the way?

(I know that´s more than one question but I´m a tad curious)

      Writers are indeed amazing! 😀 And wow you’ve only been blogging for a year? Your blog is really wonderful (just like you :D)

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Thanks Laurel 😀 it’s funny to see how first posts can strike a similar tone 😀 Looking forward to your posts!

      • Laurel says:

        Thanks so much for commenting, Elodie! It’s true, they do have many similarities, the first posts. I think I’ll go look at one of yours, perhaps the 2nd.
        I’d love it if you’d look at mine-I think it was one about Hip Replacement, or one called “The Writer(s) Within”.
        See you later,
        Laurel

    My first post was April 19, 2010 (wow, more than two years ago!) and it was an introduction of sorts. I talked a bit about myself and my family, and the first manuscript I’d written and was then querying. I’ve since trunked that sucker, but it was fun to look back and read about it. Great questions, Elodie!

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Wow, two years! I love your blog Katy, really do 😀 I think it strikes such a nice balance and people can get to “know” you through those posts! I’m going to have to read that first post of yours 😀

    My first post was back on February 27, 2010 and it was short and sweet: a link to one of my favorite sites – Writer’s Digest – and a great blog they posted that day, on YA writing (which, by the way, the link no longer works! :)).
    It’s amazing how things have changed over the 2+ years I’ve been blogging – what a great topic for today’s post, Elodie!!

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Thanks 😀 Things do change quite quickly and I very much like the idea you had for your first blog post (even though the link no longer works…), already spreading the YA love!

    My first post on my old Angelfire website was put up in January of 2002. My first post on my current blog was last March, talking about my pen name. It shows up falsely as my third post, since the time zone was incorrect when I started the blog, and it wasn’t immediately fixed.

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      January 2002? What was it about? 😀 Funny how timezones can create little issues like this, I’m going to have to check out what it was about 😀

      • Carrie-Anne says:

        It was called “Where’s Her Baby’s Daddy?” and was the first of many pieces I wrote about the Maury Povich show on my old site. A lot of people wrote to tell me that they enjoyed my series poking fun at his paternity shows and some of his other sleazy topics.

    I had a short ‘welcome’ post but my first proper blog post was entitled ‘NaNo essentials’. I was just about to start NaNo and made a list of what I usually have with me with writing, especially for Beast Inside. NaNo seemed like a handy thing to start blogging with.

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      I’ve never done NaNo but I am thinking about it for this year…I’ll have to go check out your blog post to see what essentials you were talking about 😀

  5. Shenell says:

    I just started blogging in March so I am still a newbie to this world! My first post was, of course, “Welcome!” which is self explanatory. My other “beginner” posts consisted of news in the book world, memes, and eventually my first book review. I can’t wait to see how things will be when I’m still blogging years from now!

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Awww 😀 Welcome again to the blogging world, Shenell! How do you like it so far? I find the writing and reading community to be really nice and supportive 😀 I’m learning a lot through all of you!

    Mine is there, also from September of this year–and what I’ve learned is how important the community is! I mentioned it in that post, but I had no idea how warm and wonderful YA bloggers would turn out to be! I’ve been a bit up and down in terms of how much time and energy I have for blogging and commenting, but everyone has been so supportive and friendly that I keep coming back to it and trying to renew my posting energy (with things like Blog Me MAYbe!)

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Awww I agree with you on the fact that this community is really amazing! (and I’m really enjoying your BlogMe MAYbe posts :D) As I just commented on your first blog post (thanks for sharing!), it’s funny how we both wrote about our commute 😀

  7. Mine was about the book I was writing at the time. Just a blurb description. I went from generalization blogs to reviews and writing twice a week as opposed to when I felt like it.

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      I am going to have to check out that blurb 😀 I also like having a schedule, even though it is a flexible one, I usually at least blog on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 😀

  8. My first WordPress post (I had a LiveJournal blog back in the early 2000’s and already had a Blogspot blog but I won’t count those as they were nothing to do with my writing lol) was in November 2010, entitled “No Longer A Nanowrimo Virgin” Title says it all really lol

    Xx

  9. I’ve only been blogging since January 1st this year, so I’m still new to all this. Besides the Welcome post, my first was to introduce myself and answer questions that I’ve been asked when speaking in schools about writing. I love the blogging world and have since met so many wonderful bloggers like you! 🙂

    I’m still learning from you, but I’m trying to achieve my goals. I absolutely love reading everything that is written on your website.Keep the posts coming. I liked it!
