I’m joining Ms. Kimberly as she continues her month-long September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge. Check out her blog button at the end of this post and go show her some love, guys! She’s good people!
Today’s prompt is “Resurgence,” as in, resurrecting old posts. Hence, a tribute to “the ones that got away,” the posts that didn’t receive the love I had hoped they would garner.
The blogging world is funny (strange) sometimes because the posts that you slap together at the last minute at Usain Bolt speed, without giving them too much thought, seem to soar in reader approval via comments, likes, retweets, and other social media validation. The ones that took you several lifetimes to craft? Left standing in the rain without an umbrella. 😥
When I began blogging, that conundrum really threw me for a loop and left me wondering whether I was disregarding my audience or the writing was below par. It might have partially been those two reasons at different times, but as I interacted with other bloggers, I realized that this was a common blight of the blogging world. Some posts tank, no matter how much you love them, and others rise and shine, no matter how “meh” you might feel about them.
I can lump my “show me the love!” posts into two categories: the Monday Melodies and the interviews I did with three women of excellence. I’m linking three of the Monday Melodies below, along with links to the three interviews, but the entire Monday Melody series is in the “Melodies” tab at the top of this page.
Go check some of them out!
