Hiya fellow bloggers:
This is my first assignment on the online course Blogging 101. It is wonderful to be on a public forum such as The Commons, sharing what we’ve all come together for, mainly to learn and expand our knowledge of blogging.
My name is Loretta, I started Safariofthemind about 8 months ago. At the time I had just returned from a trip to Brazil and thought I’d start writing about my adventures there, add some gorgeous photos, and thus my journey began. My blog mainly focuses on cooking these days, but I also blog on gardening and travel. It has been quite a stimulating ride thus far. In the past, I’ve written short reports and journals on some of my travel adventures, but always kept them to myself, or perhaps circulated it among family members. Since then, I’ve felt a need to go public, meet like-minded folks and expand my horizons in this field. I have learned so much in these past 8 months, I feel more confident, my photography skills have improved and I am meeting folks from around the world. One tends to forge special relationships via this medium, and I’ve really come to appreciate that immensely. My greatest thrill on WordPress is watching my blog grow, analyzing my Stats each week, and feeling remarkably intrigued when I see the world map showing the countries that are reaching my blog.
I’m hoping to learn more from this course, I’d like to improve the general look of my blog, meet some of you and discuss ways where we can help each other along the way. Please feel free to comment, whether positive or negative on how I can improve. Much obliged!
