blogging template

introduction — start off with a witty comment, a question, a concern, a thought, an interaction.

middle — use supporting arguments, pictures, explanations, situations to prove the point you previously introduced.

end — the closing KAPOW statement. circle back to the original point, and leave them wanting more.

and that’s how a blog post is written, more or less.

probably with a lot LESS simplicity and a lot MORE pulling out of hair, backspacing over words, refreshing, rewriting, revising, pondering, looking out the window, rereading, revising, rewriting, etc. etc. etc.

      i know. it’s deceiving. i actually wrote “intro, middle end” as a place holder to myself and then when i didn’t have any other ideas, i turned it into a full fledged post, or kind of one.

    intro: im not witty, so i rely on my readers to be

    middle: my arguments support nothing and no one…except for the fact that karla is a big meanie (pass it on)

    end: KAPOW. there. you asked for it. don’t say i never did anything for you.

    but hey, that’s just how i roll. i know you’re glad I shared that info with you. you’re welcome.

      and look at that — a comment becomes a blog post. you’re bulking up my resume, you big softie!

      (actually, i will admit, as false as the statement is, “karla is a big meanie (pass it on)”, it does have a certain ring to it. ha ha.)

    Nicely broken down. I bookmarking this for when I get stuck. :) Which is a lot lately. *head desk*

    Thank you. :)

      Truth: this was the result of a lack of inspiration. I wrote intro, middle, end as a form of note taking and when nothing came to fruition, I embellished on the bare bones notes. My own *head desk* moment averted. Best of luck to you and your writing!
