Prompt Post Responses….read or nah?

Posed by Dr. Tanya at Blogging Insights re: Reading Prompt Posts

TODAY’S QUESTIONS

  1. Do you like reading posts written for prompts? If so, what kind?
  2. When you publish a piece in answer to a prompt, do you read entries by other bloggers? If so, do you read them before or after you have written your own?

Do you like reading posts written for prompts? If so, what kind ?

I genuinely enjoy reading posts written for prompts, especially those containing poetry because they teach me new and [most times] challenging forms. I wish I could read all of them but it’s difficult to find time to dedicate to doing so. Since I’m not very good at interpreting photo prompts, I just glance at those to get another blogger’s perspective, which I usually find interesting and something I wouldn’t have ever thought of myself.

When you publish a piece in answer to a prompt, do you read entries by other bloggers? If so, do you read them before or after you have written your own?

When I publish a blog in response to a prompt, I make certain to read other responses after I post. I like to keep my mind free to wander into it’s own creative land rather than be guided by someone else. The funny thing is, I’ll sometimes come across another’s blog post that is similar to mine and think “oh gosh, they’re going to think I copied their idea,” which often tempts me to change mine but there’s really no reason, since I know the thoughts I expressed were original to me when I wrote them.

The frustrating thing is, I read most posts on my mobile and this strange WordPress bug prevents me from registering a “Like” on some of them, so the blogger is unaware someone else found their work interesting. Times like now, when I’m able to login on my laptop, I revisit the original prompt page and like as many of those response posts as I can find.

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
