|I have now been in the blogging business for 4.5 yrs, and I have no intention or even a thought of giving it up. Blogging has been like a good friend to me. I need it, but didn’t know it until I started out in March 2011. Before that I wrote letters. Looong letters. I sent them to family. And I have no clue whether they were interested in reading them. I know my mother did though. She was always waiting for the next letter when she had just finished reading the one in hand. She hoped I would write a book once. Nahh….. I don’t think so. But it would have pleased her immensely. Sorry mom!|
Then I started to blog. And I started to READ blogs. The blogs which interested me most were those telling tales of travels and adventures. But I also appreciated the ones which were totally unpredictable. Today it was this and tomorrow it was that. My preferences have not changed. I am still adventure-seeking and curious.
I guess a successful general make-up of a blog is a mixture of some predictable and some unpredictable news-oriented topics. A daily column with varying content, but then there is the main stuff, the one which was indicated through a headline.
Headlines are important. If I see a boring headline my fingers won’t hit the Enter-button so easily.
As a blogger we are all running the risk of getting too predictable. Living on Campobello, for example, can result in a very predictable content. The same praise every time. That’s why I try to read other stuff, like other blogs and even various online
newspapers. Somewhere there is always something one could make a blog posting of. Of course, every posting takes time, and time is not always available in sufficient amounts.
The blogging community has also played a big role in my interest. Many bloggers we have met in person and we want to know what they are “up to”, so we read their blogs. I find it refreshing to read new blogs as well. Everyone has a different style and a different way of experiencing things. That’s the way I like it.
There are days when my thoughts are not at blogging. Those can be days when I work a lot with other things or I am not feeling well at all. And I am sure every blogger has those days. It’s human nature not to be upbeat every single day.
Thanks for dropping by!
