So I have been trying to spread my voice as far and as wide as possible, and actually was invited to write a guest blog for a few sites today! I was so excited, and I typed my first one up, it was about not despairing if you have bipolar disorder, there is hope, and so on and so forth.
I have a feeling that guest blogging is kind of like photography, when you first start out, you think your work is pretty decent, but then you actually get good at what you’re doing, go back and look at your first few attempts and are mortified at how terrible it really was. At least that’s how I am with photography. I look back at my work from 4 years ago and wonder what on earth I was thinking, at least compared to the work I do now.
I hope my blogging skills improve of course, but I hope I’m not so terrible now that in a years time I’ll want to delete my first 20 posts because they’re so awful…
So back to the importance of copying and pasting your work…I finally finished my first ever post, and hit the submit article button…and Chrome froze! And I hadn’t saved my work! I almost always, always, always copy and paste before I change anything on the page, and the one time I don’t, I lose everything!
I’m trying to see the silver lining here, maybe it’s a sign that I needed to revise my work a third time to make it really, really good, or maybe it’s not a sign at all, and I just need to remember the importance of copying and pasting next time.
So, not a very inspiring story here, nor one particularly about being bipolar, just a story about the events in my day. How’s your day been? Have you ever had to be reminded of the importance of copying and pasting too?
