Blended Writing Like Blended Whiskey

Most of us like to read, even if it's only while we sit on the commode! Which brings up the fact that some writing isn't even good enough for that pastime!

Some feel they have nothing to write about. Yet they wish to bring something to the table. So what they do is just forward on everybody else's stuff via a social media page or in re-hashed writing. But it would be a kindness if they first realized, almost everyone has something they can write about, and second, we don't need repeat clutter on the internet. We each do have something we can bring to the table that is our own!

One happy formula is to pick a topic of special interest to you that you know at least something about. Look up some great facts from reputable sites on the subject, and flesh out the article with your personal insights or beliefs on the subject. Only, if what you present is not factual, but opinion, have the courtesy to point out it is just opinion.

Combining the facts from one or more primary, reputable sources and mixing in just the right amount of your personal insights can produce a fine reading "whisky" indeed.

Don't write about what you had for breakfast, how many cups of coffee it took to wake you up, what you clean your dentures with, or what you find to be the softest toilet tissue, unless you are writing as a product reviewer. People don't care what you do in this regard.

Write choice bits that remind the reader of a fine blended whisky!

You are always on point. Thanks for sharing your concerns, and maybe others besides myself will read and gain from it.

Please don't think this article was aimed at you, Anthony. Most Facebook pages are exactly what I've written about here. The main other thing on those pages is a gadzillion "selfies." Here's me standing straight. Here's me bending over. Here's me sticking my tongue out. Here's me (all loving 325 pounds of me) in my new bikini (or speedo). It's worse than tripe. At least tripe makes a heck of a pepper pot soup!

Yes, we often do not realise just how interesting some part of our lives may be to others who do not live where we live, eat what we eat or have the same political constitution for instance.

Yea, no offense was taken. I agree with what you say about Facebook selfies. And they are mainly an embarrassment to look at sometimes. I don't spend a lot of time on Facebook and I guess many of my friends, just don't understand but I have a life outside of Facebook, thank goodness.
