Six Things I Need To Know About Blogging I Learned In Kindergarten

The kindergarten was a fun place to be, and a wonderful place to learn life lessons, too. I vividly recall the many lessons that were discussed when I was in kinder many years ago. blogging kindergarten

I realized, for example, that the lessons in kindergarten could be applied perfectly to blogging, especially the following six things:

1. Share everything.

2. Don’t hit people.

3. Don’t take things that aren’t yours.

4. Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.

5. Live a balanced life—learn some and think some.

6. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.

1. Share everything.

When you blog you journalize your thoughts, ideas, feelings, observations, musings, ranting and ramblings – all intended for public viewing.

Therefore it is important for a blogger to be clear on his thoughts, to be concise and precise in his articles or posts, to be understood, and to share to the public those thoughts and feelings, especially to his target readers and subscribers. To be blog, after all, is to engage in continuing dialogue with your readers, visitors and subscribers.

2. Don’t hit people.

Play fair. When you write articles and publish it in your blog, it is basic to be fair and honest. Don’t hit people unfairly. Never accuse a person unless it is true. And allow the person to comment on your post. Do not turn off comments.

3. Don’t take things that aren’t yours.

A good blogger writes original post, or if he wants to publish an article because it is relevant and useful, to acknowledge authorship thereof.

Therefore, copying contents from other blogs, magazines, or stealing content is cheating and cheating is not playing fair. It is, in fact, a violation of copyright laws.

4. Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.

When you hurt a person or persons because you had published an article that turn out to be not true, then saying sorry and apologizing is the proper thing to do.

Don’t be defensive and rationalize. “Do unto others what you want others to do unto you” is another lesson I learned in kindergarten that is a good rule to follow in blogging.

5. Live a balanced life – learn some and think some.

Don’t make your blogging the “be all and end all” of your existence. Never stay late at nights blogging.

You can enrich your blog by your experience learned elsewhere, not by spending a lot of time on your computer.

When you are preoccupied with your blog, always think that there is a more exciting life out there, in the real world and apart from the virtual world.

6. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.

When you blog, be sure to have traffic or visitors to your site; otherwise, if no one is reading your posts, then you are just wasting your time, no matter how high quality or unique your content is.

Hold hands with other bloggers, which means you must network and establish linkages. And you must stick together with your online friends, sharing information, helping one another grow, learning from one another, their mistakes and best practices, thus enriching your blog, your blogging, and life itself.

Indeed, all the important things I really need to know about blogging, how to blog and what to blog I learned in kindergarten.

  2. This post is great and actually reveals the simple truth. Sometimes bloggers tend to forget one of these pointers.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Excellent article. Actually, this applied to our whole life and not just blogs. Whatever we learn in kindegarten is applicable for elders also and if all elders follow these rules, then life will become very nice. Nobody will cheat each other, even if they fight they will immediately apologize, everyone will be disciplined and follow all rules strictly. Sadly, this is not human nature and hence people tend to deviate from the basic rules and create problems for themselves and for the whole society.
