What To Write in Your Blog (Quick Find)

Recommended Posts





Blogs, which are like journals or diaries, are easier to write than you might think. If you've been reading some of the blogs that are already active on this website, it's easy to see the therapeutic value for survivors and caregivers. So, if you haven't already done so, why don't give blogging an honest try here at Strokenet? Here are some writing tips you might find helpful:


STEP ONE: From the list below, decide what your purpose will be in starting a blog. Once you know your objective and who your readers will be, if any, it's easier to know what and how often to write in your blog.


1) Do you want to do a straight forward recording of your day-to-day experiences and thoughts? The good, bad, and the ugly.


2) Do you want to work thought your stroke-related issues in a creative way by writing original poems or prose?


3) Do you want to use your blog to keep your family and friends more current on your daily survivor or caregiver ups and downs?


4) Do you want to keep distance family in the loop about a family member who is still in the hospital or rehab?


5) Do you want to focus on a specific part of your survivor or caregiver life? For example: a survivor's log of therapies and progress, or a caregiver's diary of fears, frustrations or fact finding notes?


6) Do you want to use your blog to act as a vehicle for self-analysis and finding your insight and balance in life?


7) A combination of the above.



STEP TWO: Decide if your blog will be public or private. Before you automatically say 'private' consider the fact that there is therapeutic value in sharing your daily ups and down and getting feedback from others. It is not necessary, though, to do a blog for public consumption. You can also start your blog in draft form and publish your entries later when you get more comfortable with the idea.
