Thanks for that suggestion, I am logging lots for our next visit.
As regards the section I have put in bold in your quote.
I doubt that many of us have ever set out knowing that we could write things that others might find interesting. To a large extent it is confidence. My only exercise in written English before was along the lines of
“ B for Effort. C for attainment. He is an amiable student, taking an active part in the lessons. His written notes are fairly complete although, as he is well aware, some of his homework’s have not been completed. It is important that he ensures completion of all the revision exercises set in the early part of next term if he is to gain the grade that he wants.”
A good way of breaking the ice on eg PolarSteps, which I used for the first time for our Christmas trip, is to post a couple of photographs, they do not have to be outstanding, just perhaps show something of the area you are in, or that you encountered. Then add a few words to describe what you liked, disliked about the location and your future plans. It tends to grow each day as you learn that you can do it and that you do get “likes”.
You write superbly on here, I am sure we are far from unique - give it a go, you may well come to enjoy it and it’s better than trying to argue with some people on here (says he carefully).
The first step/post is the hardest, it certainly does become easier with practice, but just a format that you can edit easily if you spot an error or an omission. That has been the one good thing about the revamp of MHF, we are no longer limited to being able to edit within 59 minutes of posting.
