“The expert in everything was once a beginner.”

Beginner” and “Expert” are two ends of a spectrum and there is a long journey between them. What the world sees is usually the expert: musicians, authors, scientists, athletes, artists and so many others. They become known only when they have reached the pinnacle in their field.
I have often wondered what qualified someone to become an expert. Jack of all trades and expert of none immediately came to mind, and in today’s world, Experts seem to do nothing but contradict each other, especially in the political world.

But if we apply this to blogging, the ‘expert’ is indeed a jack of all trades, in presentation, the written word, illustrations and audience appeal. It is forever a learning curve as we experiment with different ideas or topics, sometimes reverting to favourite or familiar standbys when things go perhaps a little sideways.
Here’s a little meme for you in respect of dieting, which could also apply here

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I love your take on the prompt and that you have included the jack of all trades angle.
    I love the meme. I have picked up several extra pounds during the pandemic and this was therefore most inspiring.

    We all start somewhere and as they say, “No matter where you go, there you are!”

    Every so called expert had to start as a novice, they shouldnt forget that!
