Blogging Tip of the Day: Vol. 81
If we just take all of my last 80 blog tips and put them to use I still can't even explain why most of them work and how they are effecting my personal blogging. I have talked about getting involved with communities, both literally and figuratively. At the same time my one community that has the most followers doesn't even have original content in it, but it grows and grows and grows. It's fascinating really. My blog that gets the most hits and attention is the one where I basically explain how I screw up life things (oh wait come to think of it that is kind of funny) and the steadiest blog is the health and fitness one.
So what tip am I actually giving here? That has got to be what people are asking themselves right now, but fear not I have the answer! Just write damnit! That was actually the title of the blog when I came back after not writing for a couple of years. Well not writing in my blogs anyway. I was a "serious" author during that period, or so I was convinced, by the other people who failed at blogging. The fact of the matter is people only fail at blogging when they stop writing. Again I just want to say, Just write damnit, and let the audience decide what is and is not going to be "big" or "popular" or whatnot. As long as you keep writing and posting it then you will never be a failure, even if it takes time to be popular.
This Is Me
I have been bouncing around online for just about 20 years, so I have been there and have done that. It doesn't mean I didn't like it and wouldn't do it again. As most humans, I am a social animal. To be a social animal on the internet it is social media that binds us all together. I prefer Google + and Twitter but have pages on the other ones that I ignore, so you probably should too.
I blog a lot. If you don't like people that blog a lot then I don't know how you got here to begin with. You may want to just move along.
Contrary to popular opinion I hate politics, but have political opinions ..
The easiest way to get under my skin is to apply the "all you talk about is politics" tag. This is a common knee jerk reaction some have when they see something political, and unfortunately I don't hold back sometimes. As a matter of fact, I share more about health, fitness and blogging than politics, which you would know if you weren't busy dismissing me. I actually follow and interact with more people that disagree with me than agree with me politically. The list of "other than politics" seems to be growing everyday and it probably looks a lot like this:
- Blogging (I am a blogger and I blog a lot. Get used to it.)
- Health & Fitness (Avid bodybuilder and diet guru)
- Photography (If I don't know your language now you know why I follow you)
- Android (I love Android, and wouldn't wipe my rear end with an iPhone)
- Humor (If you are funny, I am going to like you)
- Sports (Patriots and Red Sox mostly)
- Music (You'd be surprised how diverse I get here)
- Quotes (I love quotes from historical and hysterical figures)
