From “Journal of an Eclectic Mind” to “An Eclectic Journal”, lead and read by beautiful minds.
I want to make it into something more. I want to add more topics and increase the frequency of posts under some of the existing ones. But I refuse to publish posts on topics that I know nothing about. So I either learn it or work with someone who has a better grasp of it. But then again, I can only approach someone I know, and trust when it comes to the said topic. Because, sometimes, they may have a better grasp of the topic, but it can be a little more refined, or the written article may need some editing before going online.
For example, I have a friend who watches lots of movies, and have usually been on top of the latest releases, most grossing, etc., but I am sure that I would have to go through every article that he writes before publishing it. On the other hand, if Sheth writes something on, say, photography, I can safely say that I won’t have to go through each one that she writes. I mentioned Sheth as an example. Sheth is not a sponsor, but a friend (although I won’t mind if she feels so and transfers a few millions, or more, to my account).
For the idea to even be a possibility, it all comes down to the growth of SeleMoir and the quality and quantity of posts, and for that, I have to become a better writer in addition to reading and watching more about the topics I write about. And experience tells me, it can be done with patience, lots of reading, consistent writing. I may still be an amateur when it comes to writing, but when I look back, I see that I have improved steadily, and I’ll say this.
If you’re new to blogging, or writing in general, or are simply trying to be better, have patience, read a lot, think, keep writing, and keep reflecting on your progress. You can do more; this is just the basic stuff, and it works.
