Hello everyone! Good news! I just typed an entire blog post on the iPad that I'm using while sitting in Soho all day. I tried to switch up my normal routine instead of just writing at home alone like a loner. My blog for today was actually pretty darn good. I was very proud of it! When I went to save the draft and connect to wifi to publish it, everything magically disappeared! Awesome right? Totally. Now, since I've been typing all day, the battery is getting quite low. I'm also pretty far away from home. I have that sort of feeling in my chest that you get when something is going terribly wrong and you can do absolutely nothing about it. It's a very tense feeling. I could sit here and try to recreate the greatness that I've been typing all day, but I don't think I'd get it all down before the battery officially dies.
So I suppose that by now you've recognized my elation as pure sarcasm. In light of the current events, we all pretty much loose. However, how many of you believe that everything happens for a reason? I'm not completely convinced, seeing as though I spent quite a few freakin hours typing out the things that I wanted to say, in a very eloquent manner might I add, but what can I do? As much as we would like for time travel to exist, it does not. We must move forward, no matter the circumstances. We must play the hand we are dealt. We must make the lemonade out of the lemons we have. In every situation, there is a lesson to be learned, something to get out of it all. Even if things may be going good, they can be better until they are ultimately the best we can possibly come up with. Hopefully, this will allow us to avoid as many unfortunate situations as possible whenever they arise.
The previous post that I worked so long and hard on, basically was going to be about improving my site based on the research that I'd been doing about guest blogging. In summarizing what I wrote, I'll just give the main pointers; I firstly need to do a lot more investigative journalism for my writings each week. I would like to take more time in composing my words and phrases in such a way that is relatable as well as captivating and informative. The second thing I want to work on is more networking in my field. I want to begin to reach out to other bloggers more. We are the company we keep after all! The last thing, I want to add value to the reader's life. I know that there are many other blogs that do pretty much the same sort of thing that I do, so I need to set myself apart from the crowd. I mainly write about myself, my life, and my discoveries, which is good to me, but it needs to translate into more valuable information in order for expansion.
The thing I've learned from my most recent debacle? l learned to copy whatever I write before pushing any buttons arbitrarily, that's for sure. The world will never know what was lost in the vast history of erased content. But more importantly, should we have known at all? Whatever the case may be, I do hope you will stay tuned for the improvements that I will be making to the overall structure and content of BretonyBoheme.com. The research has helped me tremendously so far, and I look forward to doing much more! We should never be complacent in life. Doing what we love is great, but constantly improving is absolutely necessary as well. Take that extra training course, practice something you think you're already good at, reach out to those who are doing what you do and compare struggles. I'm now off to charge my devices and do some more crying over spilled milk, but I do want to note, that I STILL got an entire piece out today!
P.s. I don't remember exactly what context, but I do remember using the following quote; "What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough" - Eugene Delacroix
P.p.s. I also remember talking about my Patreon page. This is something I have recently come across. The website is a platform for creative individuals to gain patrons or supporters for their particular craft. For example, for every video I post, patrons can donate as little as $1. There are also incentives associated with each tier of contribution. I think it's great! It would give me a sense of accountability. Monetary support is the highest level of support if you ask me, and if people are that invested in my advancement, it will make me much more motivated to create bigger, better, and more consistent material.
P.p.p.s. My blog may not be the most successful or professional, but if it isn't anything else, it's at the very least a reflection of my life... out of control, full of mistakes, chaotic, yet colorful and often makes me happy.
