This post was updated on May 4, 2020 to add posts I wrote about my lockdown experience.
How has the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic affected your blogging ? Are you posting more or less than you used to?
I have been posting more since the time my office asked us to start working from home. The last time I went to work was on March 13. I even did a 10-day letter writing challenge on Blogger Community just to help myself and others focus on something good. If you want divert your attention towards something positive, you can still write letters.
What is the tone of your posts these days, happy, sad , serious, worried?
My posts are more about me spreading hope and positivity. Since the A-Z challenge is going on, I am focusing on self-love and self-appreciation. I think it’s a good time to do posts like that because you never know how some of my words may help someone in some part of the world.
Have you written any posts specifically about the crisis and its effect on your life? If so, please share a link?
I have not written any specific post. I am just sharing photos in my photography series called ‘Moments‘ to capture how I spent my time social distancing.
The reason I have not written anything on COVID-19 specifically is this- I am a journalist. I report coronavirus-related news for 9 hours throughout the week. When I close work, my family is still wanting to watch or talk about the infection.
Even though I report more of human interest and heartwarming news, I just don’t want to talk about it all day. But maybe, I can do one happy post about it. Let’s see…
I wrote a post about how I spent my time in April 2020. Read it here.
A detailed account (in three parts) of the effect of the coronavirus and lockdown will be posted soon.
What kinds of posts do you like to read these days?
I am not choosing the posts I read. I am just exploring some of the new bloggers I have come across recently. Either they are giving me positive vibes or I am sending them mine. I am also going through posts of other bloggers I follow.
