Okay, so maybe I should say BLOGGER, but the way I feel about now, I'm probably about as profficient at logging as I am at blogging.
I've been blogging for a couple of years now and honestly, there are still days I wonder why I even have a blog. Wonder if I've even reached anyone. Or is my blog more like my online diary.
I know a blog should be a tool that is used to get information out and draw followers to my site.
I've sort of done that. Sorta. But it's a hit and miss process.
And frankly, I'm not always sure what the hits and misses are.
I hear people say to have a good blog, you should have a theme.
To have that theme, you have to know which audience you want to reach. And what you plan to use your blog for.
There are so many kinds of blogs. Some discuss writing, (as a writer I gravitate to these). Some are political in nature. Some are topical. Some are fluff. Some share poetry. Some share Jokes. Some talk taste in Music and on and on. But the best blogs have some kind of theme.
So what kind of theme do I want to write about?
Do I want to teach? Do I want be an outlet for other writers? Do I simply want to showcase myself and my thoughts?
Should I be funny? Should I delve into the more poignant thoughts of life? Should I be poetic? What kind of people do I want to bring to my site?
And once I've settled on my theme and what I plan to do with it…
I have to figure out how much time I want to spend on my blog. How many blogs do I want to post?
Then I have to consider layout, and links and how to get people to my site. Then I have come up with new and pithy things to write about so I'll keep my followers interested and they'll stop in often to see what new and awesome things I write about.
A lot goes into a blog.
But hey, today I have no worries. Today, I'm a logger.
