Who would have guessed that writing a blog would be the start of many adventures.
I recall deciding to write a blog and researching a little bit about how to do it. Reading up on WordPress, I was to discover, by installing the free software, I could be my own author, journalist, editor, and photographer. I aimed to create a monthly post, with articles and photos of places I had visited & discovered when I went out walking.
My idea to join a walking group and looking for something to write about sort of collided
I’m still learning about so many subjects. Deciding to write a blog, and creating a website, has involved learning many skills. The list goes on and includes: how to write a blog, and essentially editing. Organising photographs is a job in itself. The work is in naming, dating and referencing, which is methodical but pays off. It means you don’t need to look through a thousand pictures to find what you are looking for.
Reading landscapes is still something new to me, and something I want to learn more about.
Understanding train travel in the Uk, is something I have learnt how to do, including reading train timetables!; seriously I had no time for that before. I now have a better understanding of all the different train companies, and train routes, running through the UK.
My short trips are mainly in the Uk and close to home, more so because of lack of time and money than any fear of travelling further afield. Learning to understand my own personal limits, is priceless, and understanding how far I can walk, and what my own personal fitness need are is something nobody could have taught me.
Having researched walks, on-line or from books, as well as just generally going out in London and making up walks. I have joined a few walking groups, and tried reading maps, although I’m not good at map reading, I have tried but recognise my limits and I always aim to improve.
I am in the process of creating a writing support business on line, if anyone is interested in learning about writing on line, This business for you.website is in process, it is called:
