Blogging Tip of the Day: Vol. 86

Today's Tip: Don't box yourself in to an imposed theme. Often we see a lot of different bloggers that are locked into a theme, and they are probably missing out on what their calling really is. This isn't always a bad thing, but often it is just too bad to see it happen.I was the opposite for a long time where I was so diverse in what I did that it made it harder and harder to keep an audience, then I went to a "theme" which made it harder and harder to even gain an audience. It was when I found the balance that things started clicking on all cylinders for me personally.

You need to keep these things in mind as you go through your blogging journey. Just because you have what you and a few other people consider the greatest "dining out" blog in the world, doesn't mean you don't have other things to say. You never know if one of those "other things" is your real calling, and how can you if you are stuck in a "dining out" blog. You do have different options here. Change your blog to an "Entertainment" blog with a focus on "Dining Out" or start a second blog, then a third if you need to. I realize it is easy for someone like me who babbles to say this, but you'll also find that I didn't babble until I had more venues for my thoughts. This of course led to ... you guessed it ... more thoughts. This of course led to more readers and the grand prize for a lot of bloggers, more revenue.
