Great bloggers to me never have to tell you how great they are. You just see them and know their blog is great. Blogging is like the book industry in many ways. Many “great” bloggers get overlooked and that’s just how it is. This goes for bloggers that write, share photography, artwork, food, design, or are simply here to socialize. We all blog.
I’ve seen some great blogs that instantly engage me. It may be a title that grabs me, a website that’s been touched and perfected, or a blogger that frequently posts and also engaged their audience. We don’t all have the time for this and that is why it stands out to me. I enjoy blogs that frequently post. Dormant or weekly bloggers simply can’t hold my attention because it feels scripted to me when someone presents their life in a scheduled manner. Obviously I get this can be a necessity due to how busy people are, nonetheless that is my opinion.
I respin posts and piggyback them with a new one. I don’t set a standard for posting and I actually have slowed done considerably from my younger blogging days in 2013. That guy was an eager beaver for sure. I will say that I don’t consider myself a great blogger. I’m good, but there is so much to learn. So much to do. A great blog… I just don’t see how one individual ever does it. Runs it. And keeps it running. Not and do a full time day job like I do. Don’t even throw in a family with two kids in the picture.
I understand the next step for me and I’m still considering the angles. When you’ve expanded yourself as far as you can go the only choice after is to expand your boundary. That requires more hands. I’m not sure I’m prepared for that.
