You can blog anywhere!
The fun of being a blogger is that you really can do it anywhere. I was on my way to Sydney for a training course. My flight was delayed but why should I be annoyed. When I arrived at the terminal I found a desk, chairs, sockets and even internet connection. I installed my notebook and started writing this post.
My time is utilised perfectly and by the time the flight is ready to leave I have another post to my name. And without this delay I would not have had the inspiration to blog about this topic. Am I an optimist, an opportunist or just realistic? You may call it what you like but I was not going to waste my time.
Blogging as an outlet for frustration
Another thing comes to mind. Imagine this delay would have really ‘screwed’ up my schedule for the day. Instead of heading to the bar and indulge in some kind of beverage to let of steam I could get rid of my frustration by writing it all down. I bet you that many people could relate to this as so many things in life are delayed, postponed or even cancelled.
You see – that is the ‘therapeutic value’ of blogging. Write it all down, reflect on the issue. Once you have expressed your frustration and have accepted your fate I suggest you read your own post again and laugh about the whole matter. I am guaranteed that you see the funny side of it and remember this instance with a smile, even if it is only a faint one!
Being ‘connected’ at all times
I must say that I am impressed with these public facilities for computer users. I am aware of internet cafes and heard about public places that offer Wi-Fi. All very handy when you need to have access to the internet during meetings or when you are blogging away from home. Who could have thought that 20 years ago? I certainly would not have believed that one day I would be equipped to be ‘connected’ wherever I am. And here I was on my way to Sydney with my notebook and my smart phone and I was able to reach out while I am on the go. It is wonderful addictive to say the least.
And so is blogging by the way – it is fun, rather addictive and very, very rewarding in many ways. Many people have been able to realise one or more ways to create an income with a blog, full time or part time. I am sure it is very hard work just as any other successful enterprise is but it must be a wonderful feeling to get paid for something you are passionate about.
The secret is to uncover how it can be done…
