The Ramble Begins

. . .

Where do I start?

I have seen, read and studied many, many blogs. I trusted that the owners of the blogs seemed to know what they were doing. Everything was in their hands. Easy-peasy.

But now everything is in my hands. I’m the one in control of what other people read. And that’s quite scary.

Ever since I wanted to start a blog, I used to think that once I’ve created a URL on WordPress, I’d immediately know what colors I wanted to use, the pictures to go with each article, not to mention what I wanted to say on my first post.

It’s sort of like how you always visualize yourself on a stage doing amazingly awesome at whatever-you-like-to-do (dancing, singing, reciting 100 digits of pi, etc.), but when you actually get up on the stage for real, you kind of freeze up. Everybody’s watching you. All the pressure is on you. And there is no room for mistakes. Terrifying, ain’t it??

And as it turns out, creating a blog is not as easy as make-your-own-URL-and-sign-up-for-WordPress-and-ABRACADABRA-you-have-a-blog. I had no idea how many steps that I needed to take (and still need to take) just to make a website address. I can’t even remember all the steps — it’s so complicated.

My point is: I have no idea what I’m doing, and I’m lost and confused.

I guess I could have just said that. There is a reason I’m calling myself the RambleBeast, you understand. I talk way too much for my own good.

In this blog, I hope to do art showcases, nerdy rants, a bit of writing stuff, some Jesus-freakish stuff and possibly a bunch of other random thingamajigs. I’m honestly not sure where this will take me.

As of now, my post-time will be pretty inconsistent. You may likely catch me posting a bunch of stuff for three consecutive days, followed by two-month utter silence. It all depends on my unpredictable inspiration. Sometimes I really wish it didn’t have a mind of its own. . .

Advice on blogging is very much encouraged! I need all the help I can get! I’m SO excited I finally get to do this!! Here’s to yet another blog floating in Cyberspace.

Beast out.

  1. First comment!! Whooo!
    *cough* *straightens tie*
    Back to business.
    Hello there, Dekreel, welcome to the crazed, lunatic area of space called the blogosphere (or whatever it is we’re calling it nowadays).
    My tips on blogging would be: Be yourself, persevere, and uh…try not to press too many buttons? You never know what they might do.
    Not that I know from personal experience or anything.

    1. GAHHH first comment ever!! I literally started screaming when I saw it. πŸ˜‰

      Sounds rather exciting. Thanks so much for the tips. Like seriously, they help. ^.^

      I’m so glad to see you eeeeee haha. . .

  2. Yay! Happy blogging, Dekreel! Love the vibrant colors and fonts you chose for this awesome blog! πŸ˜€ Excited for you and this new journey of yours!
    *eagerly awaits new content*

  3. Hey, hey, hey! I see all your Kingdom Pen peeps have been commenting, but, uh, I’ll just leave this one a bit o’ a mystery. *smirks*

    1. Hiya, mystery person, heheh! (Although my dashboard gave it away, the stinker.) Several of them are Story Embers people, too.

      1. LIRL, I know about the dashboard. And yeah, okay, YAY, it’s me, Nola, ___, whatever ya wanna call me. LAL!

  4. *waves hello* Best of luck with WordPress. Whatever you do, don’t try to drop the entire site and reinstall it like I did that one time. I ended up ruining my whole database so I couldn’t reinstall it.

    Cool theme by the way. Never seen this theme before…

    Wait, this is how I introduce myself? lol. Best of luck on the blog, and I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

    1. Haha, thanks for the technical advice! I’m still filling in gaps and stuff so that’s quite helpful. XD Thank ya! πŸ˜€

  5. EEEP! Hiya Peri! Your new blog is THE BOOOOMB! Can’t wait to hear more! I love a good ramble.


    ~~Stanley, who may or may not be a Turducken.


    (I’ll try not to be to random on this blog Peri, I swear it)

    1. Stan!!! Glad you managed to find my blog! πŸ˜ƒ I hope you enjoy it.

      Honestly, be as random as you please. πŸ˜‰

  6. Eyyyy Dekreel has joined the blogosphere!! Welcome, my friend! Can’t wait to see you around more and what you do with the Inky Ramble Beast (excellent name, btw).

    I got your blog button on my page too! Here’s to a wonderful new blog! <3

    1. AACK, hi, Snaps! Thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you. XD To all four of those bits. So glad you could stop by! πŸ˜‰ (I almost said “thank you for stopping by”. Ugh. XD )

    1. I’m already struggling. Not a good sign. -_-

      Relatively speaking, your blog doesn’t look half bad (I took a peek at it — I hope you don’t mind πŸ˜‰ ) . Looks like some interesting stories. I’ll read them soon, I reckon.

      Thanks so much, dude!! πŸ˜€

  7. Weeeeeeell now. It seems that it took A. a bit to find this place. I may read a few more posts and leave random comments about polar bears fighting in wars here and there. Write well, Peregrine.
