How do you write? Blogging Insights 3.0 – 2

For today’s installment of Blogging Insights, I am going with the Q and A format.

TODAY’S QUESTIONS :

Do you write directly on a device? Are you old school, do you write on paper first?Do you re-draft? If so, how many times?

MY ANSWERS:

Do you write directly on a device? Are you old school, do you write on paper first?

When I launched my blog, my writing process was quite laborious. I would write each post in a notebook, and then type it out on my laptop in Microsoft Word. After this, I would paste the piece in WordPress before posting. Like I said before, it was laborious and time consuming.

As my familiarity with WordPress and my confidence grew, I started writing my posts directly on my laptop in the WordPress drafts. Once I learned to negotiate WordPress on my phone, I started writing directly on it. Waiting time before appointments, commute time, and even time in check out queues became writing opportunities on my phone.

Do you re-draft? If so, how many times?

In the beginning, when I wrote in a notebook and copied it onto my computer, that process was also an opportunity for editing and re-drafting. Later, writing directly on a device, I would edit and re-draft as required. These days, since I am very busy in my family life, I just do a quick check for typos.

What is your method? I would love to know.

You can drop me a line in my comments section. Better still , why not write a post of your own?

  1. Your way sounds a lot like how I began on blogging. I’d write everything in a notebook first, then type them on WP. Now I just type in the WP editor place, checking preview a lot to correct any mistakes, then hit publish. 🙂

  2. My blogs start as ideas in Evernote, sometimes the blog is written in Evernote. Usally I write in a iPad app called Journal then I copy/paste to WP. In WP I do my editing. SInce the blogs are written so far in the future (couple weeks anyway), I have a horrible habbit of reading and editing them. The normal post will be tweaked 25 time before it is publish. I know, I have a problem.
