For this week’s Blogging Insights episode, Dr. Tanya points out that the coronavirus pandemic has changed the world as we know it. “It has deeply touched the lives of us all, even those who have not been infected.” She’s asking us to share with her how it has affected our blogs and blogging.
1. How frequently do you post about the pandemic? Please share links to a couple of your “pandemic posts” that you particularly like. If you have not written anything about Coronavirus/COVID-19 (seems unbelievable) what are your reasons for this?
Between those non-fiction posts specifically about the pandemic and our president’s mishandling of it, and those flash fiction posts that incorporate the coronavirus/COVID-19 into the tale, at least a few dozen. As to links, well, here’s one about the devastation that the coronavirus has personally caused me: Damn You, Coronavirus!
2. What kind of “posts about the pandemic” do you like to read? (If you don’t, then please tell us why?)
Interesting, engaging, informative, entertaining, and well written posts. I’ll skip the rest, thank you.
3. How have you and your blog adapted to “the new normal”?
I now hold my iPhone at full arm’s length when I use it for blogging in order to maintain proper social distancing.
4. Have you seen any change in your blog stats during the pandemic? Also, are you posting more or less than you used to?
Not really. My stats are about the same.I’m posting fewer posts per day so far this year than I did in 2019, but that has nothing to do with the pandemic.
