I was in full-on BPD panic mode earlier as I was trying to absorb the do’s and don’ts of blogging. I am doing so much so wrong. The title and header image looked more like a pigeon fancier group than the mental health sharing concept I have in mind. Even tags were all wrong. Apparently. And you should proof read? Nope. Never. Not for my in-the-moment style.
I stumbled across these three webpages. Whether they were right, wrong or purely opinion based didn’t register with me, I felt a surge of DESPAIR and have begun editing my particulars.
Regarding the use of tags. I deleted three quarters of them as they were used only once or twice and kept the main ones for site relevance.

Next up was blogger do’s and don’ts. Mind blown. I’ll need to read this one slowly as surely every blogger has their own style and agenda? And so what if they use naughty words? We’re all adults here.

Finally the big one that had me slamming on the kettle and grabbing a mouthful of valerian, my self identity crisis triggered and self belief briefly burned to ash. This is obviously a professional site I found and was really overwhelmed. Should you focus on one subject only? Mental Health the umbrella term for everything that’s connected. But what about format? Poetry, prose, musings, happy moments? How can a multi-subject blog be condensed into one?
