Blogging Insights NF # 53 — ‘Finger exercises’


Sometimes I think of blogging as finger exercises for a violinist; sometimes I think of it as mulching a garden. It is incredibly useful and helpful to my “real” writing. ~Kate Christensen


I disagree with this quote to the extent that it implies that blogging is not ‘real’ writing. In my opinion, anything you write, in any medium or on any platform is writing per se.

As far as ‘finger exercises’ go , the more you practise a craft the better you become at it. This is true of any skill, not just writing. In this way I agree with the overall premise of today’s quote.

What do you think? I would love to know.

Better still, why not write a post of your own. Just remember to tag it #blogginginsights
