It is great to get started bogging from the comfort of your own home. This can be done for free with a free wordpress blog that’s easy to use and comes with training. It is fun and you don’t need to carry your books and computer with you, you can be as organised or as messy as you want. It is not how ever recommended that you do this all the time. Check out this lesson I learned from 2 ducks I saw in the street.
Be a duck:
I was sat at home watching tv, when I decided it was time I made a post on my blog. I was stuck for inspiration and couldn’t decide what I should write about. As I look out the window down my street, I saw two ducks with sparkling beaks. Their coat of feather’s, one brown one green, shimmering in the sunlight and flapping in the wind. I wonder what it is like to be a duck?
You think I’m strange talking about a couple of ducks?
While it may seem strange, it is also different and unique. Everyone has a story to tell, you just need some time to find your inspiration. Most people think they are unable to make a post that is more than a few lines long. Go on an exploration and you will find your story unfold. The lesson I learned is that there is a story to be told everywhere we look. If your mind is blind then open your eyes and be like a duck.
Take the two ducks in my street. This was strange as I only ever saw a few ducks together in a small group. They usually hung around by the nearby river and stayed on the field collecting passers by bread crumbs. These two ducks waddled up and down the road several times in an hour, only stopping on the path to take in their surroundings or change direction. They seemed to just want a break from paddling or maybe they were lost. After a couple of hours the ducks were seen passing through flowers in some front gardens, chasing off a lazy cat and heading back into the river. Very strange that they would stray so far. They traveled from one side of town to another. I guess even ducks find home a bit samey and monotonous. Later I found out these ducks were looking to raise a family by nesting away from their main river. What a wonderful thought of a generation of adventurous traveling ducks.
What I learned from 2 ducks:
The ducks taught me to branch out and to get some exercise. Doing this especially when I get stuck will help me see more of the world in so much more colour. This gives me inspiration and if I put it into my work and stories the world will be a more interesting place. There are only so many stories to tell about 1 area but so many ideas to explore in the world.
I never thought a duck could be a teacher, or I could learn anything from them but they certainly helped in my quest to blog more from home. One day I will visit those ducks again to see how they are doing and what else I can learn from the local animals. If you like my post please share it and feel free to leave me a comment.
