The Blog/Dance Connection...Carlisle, PA.

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

Thank you to Debbie Laity for offering the 'Spring Cleaning' Challenge.  
I appreciate that Debbie's first sentence of introduction to to this contest says, "When I first started blogging, I didn't have any idea what I was doing."  

Last night I went to a Swing Dance Club.  I do not have any dance experience and when I arrived, a seasoned dancer walked over to me and he said, "You've done the hardest part, you've walked in the door...Now it's time to have FUN!"

Like a dancer, each blogger has their own unique style and flavor. Practice helps to smooth out the edges and hopefully provide an elegant flow.


I wrote my first blog post on Active Rain June 26, 2016.  I literally signed up and took the immediate plunge.  So, in response to Debbie's challenge, I have taken some time throughout the month of March to revisit my posts and make some needful changes and adjustments.


I noticed that most of my earlier posts didn't even offer my contact information so I knew I had some work to do.  In addition, I have added my city and state to most of my post titles, I added tags, and hyper-linked to my local pages.  Some of my blogs regarding local events and have even prompted phone calls from readers to ask me further details, so the 'search gods' are somehow watching me.

I confess along with Debbie that I didn't know much about blogging when I started and I am continuing to learn.  Just like swing dancing, we never know who might saunter across the floor and share a few moments of the 'dance of life' by our side and I am so very thankful for the new-found friendships due to my blogging and I am having 'fun.'

Hi Maria - like you and others I took the plunge and learn as I went along.  We can see how much we have learned by looking at our early posts

Great post, Maria, and a great analogy. But what, no pictures of your dancing? I'm impressed by your taking the plunge the way you did... I must have lurked around Active Rain for a year before doing so.

Nina Hollander - It's funny that you mention that because I considered asking someone to take pictures - but I was truly having so much fun, I quickly forgot about photos and simply enjoyed the moments!
