What happens after you press “publish.”


Do a quick blog meditation on, well, blogging itself. Once you write it out, put it into your blog admin, and click the “publish” button – what happens? Do you go check out what it looks like live? Re-read it? Start the sharing process? Do you immediately tweet a link? Email it to everyone? Check for spelling errors?

That’s all you have to do today. Write about your blog-writing and post-publish process.


Bonus: Write about the blogging process from start to finish in chronological order. Do you start at the title and work your way down? Find an image last? What happens when?


It will be interesting to see how alike we are – and how different we are – when it comes to the physical act of blogging. And serve as a good study on The Art of Blogging that we’re doing all month.

    I…didn’t do the prompt today.  I shared some pictures of who I blog about, who I advocate for – my son. http://chrisahickey.blogspot.com/2011/11/wordless-friday-just-pictures-nabpm.html

    1. Don’t underestimate the power of your blog!  I used to wonder the same thing (and occasionally still do). However, when I get a message from time to time from a mother who has a teenage daughter who has just been diagnosed with a similar type of headache issue, and she has come across my blog and wants to reach out to me/thank me for blogging, it makes me feel that it’s all worth it!  Keep up the great writing!
