What’s blogging got to do with dancing?

tango dancingSome of you know that for almost 2 years now, my wife and I have been learning ballroom and latin dancing. We don’t think yet it’s a talent but we can do a few steps in the Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Quickstep, Pasodoble, Jive, Rumba, and Cha-cha-cha.

And it’s very much like blogging.

You never stop learning. You make mistakes. You trip up. You ask others for advice. And if you want to improve it’s hard work, takes total commitment and positive results take months.

Those ‘adverts’ promising quick riches by guys standing next to their big houses and flashy cars have fooled some of us bloggers.

“Look what I’ve achieved just by blogging. So can you. Buy my e-book and I’ll tell you how. $27”

Yeah right!

They don’t tell you it can take many months to earn your first dollar.

I remember the first conversation with our ballroom dancing teacher. She said ‘It will take you a few months to learn just a few steps”.

I didn’t believe her! I used to be a great disco dancer in my teenage years dancing to groups like Earth Wind and Fire (my favorite group ever).

But the dancing teacher was right, it did take us months of weekly lessons and weekly practice nights PLUS practising at home and last night we attended the Christmas ball.

Ball gowns and black ties everywhere!

It was a chance to dress up, have a few drinks, let our hair down and escape from the ‘mad rush’ world we live in.

It was great fun dancing to a live band, especially as we coped admirably with the crowded ballroom floor.

Here’s a video of my wife and I dancing the Tango:

Only kidding!

Did you like the mock up?

Yes, it is our faces but not our bodies doing the dancing.

Keep blogging (and dancing!)
