No, I never felt cheated when reading your posts. Being aware of these techniques makes now that I look totally different at blog posts. On Copyblogger some of the writers do use this opening. But if every post would start like this people might notice it and get bored. In the artist blog area I don’t see this type of opening often (or I didn’t recognize them). Like Mohammed said, you get an X-ray view. I like it!
Here (with new eyes) my altered post from tuesday with your suggestions for correction and a different final paragraph. Now I hope I make a good promise.
How to Capture Precious Travel Moments for Future Creative Projects
You’re on a hiking trip in the Grand Canyon. Everyday you enjoy the multi-coloured pallet of layers. A warm symphony in ocre, brown and red. They tell about how old our ancient earth is. You take lots of pictures. You try to retain the magnitude of passing of time in this breathtaking part of our planet.
But then you come home. Put down the suitcase and look around in your familiar house. You see a pile of letters, scan through them. You open your suitcase to unpack the laundry.
Close family gets called so they know you’re home. You tell a bit about the travel and agree on meeting later in the week. You are already making lists in your head “what to do”. Before you know you are back in the rut and your amazing trip starts to be a fading memory.
It happened to me last week.
After a 3 week travel my daily life knocked on the door. But this time I didn’t let the memories slip like sand. I decided on devoting time to ground my experiences in a conscious & practical way. I used 5 actions to solidify my precious holiday moments.
You can do this too.
It’s fun, I bet you’ve done some of my tips already.
