I have to be honest. I don't feel that I have put in as much energy as I should have when it comes to blogging about marketing. It's a subject that I am passionate about and in normal working circumstances, I am not too bad at communicating. However, when I hop on my blog I am usually tired from a long day at the office. The 5.30am starts are killing me and as my eye sight becomes blurry, I sit down to write on a blog or two. For a start, my Optometrist says I need glasses because I have stressed eyes from looking at a computer each day.
I spend so many waking hours glued to the screen that by the time I get to my blog, my brain fails and my knowledge of the English language becomes non-existent.
Even as a Virgo, I accept my typing mistakes and am really too lazy to go back and correct them. My brain works faster than that of my typing speed so it is becoming a regular issue that I am faced with and that of those who read my blog.
I figure that if people point out my typos or grammar errors then at least I know they are reading my blogs.
I would probably pop a bottle of champagne in the event that this does actually occur.
Now, back to blogging and being recognised.
Today, I had the most surreal experience. I was chatting to a young University Student who realised from my photograph on my blog who I was and was very excited (or a great actress -- probably the latter)to be speaking to the 'blogger'.
Well, for a start, I am terribly excited that anyone has actually read my blogs. They are usually a quick download of my thoughts at that particular second.
To be recognised as a blogger is an honour. Gen-y are reading my blogs. I quickly ring my inhouse web developer and inquire about how many other people have read my blogs.
He informs me thousands. Ooops. If I had only known that, I would have put more thought into every word that I wrote.
There is always a next time.
