I don’t know how many blogs are out there, but I know it’s in the millions.
I don’t know how many topics there are to blog about, but I’d guess that’s in the millions, too.
Fortunately they don’t and we’re free to write about anything we want.
Hence, we find many bloggers publishing posts on the exact same subject.
Just like I do.
The last thing I planned to do was have a blog about blogging. After all, when I started there were already hundreds (or thousands) of blogging blogs out there.
Thinking back, I could have kept this blog private since I was just writing down what I was learning, but at the time my thoughts were, “What the heck. Make it public. Maybe I’ll get a visitor or two.”
And eventually I did.
When that happened, I felt there was no turning back.
So there I was, blogging about blogging; a topic that gets written about so often, I sometimes felt I was beating a dead fish.
I realized I needed to approach blogging about blogging from a different perspective, and since I’m not into writing a lot of “How To” blog posts, I knew I had to do kick it up a notch. Experiment. Take a risk.
So what I’ve done is made this blog about you by asking you how you feel about different blogging topics and how you view things in blogosphere.
You share your perspective and those who visit and read the comments, learn from many bloggers, not just one.
In some ways it doesn’t matter what I write; I’m just the conduit which leads visitors to your view point.
And when they arrive, lessons are learned, connections are made and I no longer feel I’m beating a dead fish.
I see that as a win-win.
Do you think some topics get beat to death by bloggers?
If you’re blogging about the same topic as others, how do you keep your content fresh and original?
Care to share?
P.S. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your continued support and thoughtful comments. This blog wouldn’t be what it is if it wasn’t for your loyalty which is something I truly appreciate.
