How I Like To Blog
Now, here’s a thing. I enjoy blogging and I enjoy blogging as I want to blog. I do try to add a bit of humour into my blog, when possible. However, there’s the odd one that gets a little serious. Oh, and my recipes I’ve started adding, there’s not a lot of humour in them. In a nutshell, I enjoy the way I put my blog together and hope that when you read it, you enjoy it too.
Like most bloggers, I search the internet for help and information on how I might improve my blog and here’s my problem. Almost all of the so-called professional bloggers that I find, tell me that I’m doing it all wrong. You must find your niche, blog about something you’re passionate about, people want information, you must have a brand. It all feels like a little brow beating (that’s me putting it mildly) after a while.
I have yet to find anywhere that says, “….be yourself…write about whatever you want….make it funny.” How on earth can anyone enjoy blogging if they write for no other reason than to create traffic? One of my reasons for using WordPress is because the community is so diverse and so far, very friendly. I enjoy the blogs I’m subscribed to and find them entertaining as well as informative. Does it mean, according to the so-called experts, that we all go about blogging in the wrong way?
I’ve read blogs by Seth Godin!
Dotty Bagshaws Blog
This wasn’t meant to be a rant, perish the thought, but, I find it so tedious when I’m told that I must have a strategically placed keyword, a title that has a call to action and text that is good for SEO etc, etc. I’ve read blogs by Seth Godin who is supposed to be one of the top 10 bloggers in the universe. From what I can see, he writes a few lines of words which don’t really mean much, not to me anyway and there’s a huge popup asking you to buy his book! Admittedly, he has a lot of visitors, I just don’t get it, though I would sooner read Dotty Bagshaws blog about her daily bunion challenges.
Anyway, I bet there aren’t many bloggers in the top ten that have had their website on the side of a London bus. To all the bloggers that I’m subscribed to out there please keep doing what you’re doing. I enjoy it as I hope you enjoy my blogging adventures.
