The garden dawdler 22 April edition

Thanks Rory for these 9 questions, which I am going to attempt to answer now.

Do you think it helps or hinders a writer from having a big ego?
I don’t think many writers have big egos. At least I haven’t come across many who do. A lot of the writers I’ve come into contact with actually don’t think very much of their writing at all.

How often do you read your blog content from an outsider’s perspective?Not very often. I rarely reread my blog posts.

I view my blog as an allotment garden. How do you view yours?
I view mine as a dumping ground for all of the pieces that make up my life.

What’s the first book you ever remember reading way back when?Black beauty.

Were you ever read to as a child, and by whom?
I was read to sometimes by student staff at the boarding school for the blind that I attended. Mostly they’d read Enid Blyton books, or Roald Dahl ones.

Where do you like to read? At home on the couch? Whilst travelling? In bed? Where?Either in bed or on my recliner, although, I’ve also read while on a long car journey.

What are the most significant barriers to your creativity?
My low self esteem, and my attention to detail.

Do you think blogging is essential, and if you do, why?Yes. I do. I feel it is a really good way to connect with like minded people. And it has many benefits for our mental health also.

There are many benefits to blogging; however, what are the three top downsides of blogging, in your opinion?

Spam comments, wordpress sometimes not working as it should, and hmm I can’t think of a third one.
