On this particular platform, I have now written 6,000 blogs. (Actually, this is 6,003.) I was also blogging on another platform and blogging before they were called blogs.

Writing has been an incredible experience. I've learned a lot. One of the main things you learn when you first start writing is that you assume people are taking into account your personality when they read the words. This could not be more wrong. The written word doesn't show whether you typed it with a smile or a frown on your face and people will jump to conclusions.

Another big factor to consider when blogging is that people will immediately look for holes in your stories if you don't take action to cover them. This can be a problem because you often want to edit things down for easier reading, but people/trolls will take advantage of that.

People also love to pick apart your credibility, but defending yourself is a waste of time. Who cares about credibility? Blogs are opinions. If you don't like my opinion, move on. I wasted a lot of time defending my character, but I've decided ultimately that my actions speak for themselves.

Once again, the most important advice I ever heard on writing was from "Drive-In Movie Critic" Job Bob Briggs, who said the best way to learn how to write is to write.

So thanks to all of you who have followed my blogs, and if you've ever considered starting a blog, I hope these few tips will help you.

And to everyone, I would like to say thank you for reading. Sorry if you are one of the ones I made mad, but I hope you smiled once in a while.
