Words gets a lot of politicians in trouble, with some believing politicians are just blowing smoke.
Words are easy to say or write. The question becomes, do you stand behind your words? Do you walk your talk?
Whether you are in business or blogging, your words are a reflection of you.
In the course of learning how to, and actually blogging, I have done tons of research, and read hundreds of thousands of words.
Search for one topic and you’ll get millions of hits.
Start reading the results, and you’ll get dozens of “opinions”.
My problem, with blogging, still remains, what can you believe?
Some big name bloggers will say, don’t monetize. Visit their blog, and it’s filled with ads
Some say, answer your comments. Read their comments, and the author rarely appears
Some say, write great content, Read their blogs, and some of their content is not so great.
Some say, get quality inbound links. Ask a big name blogger for one, but don’t hold your breath.
Some say, “sign up for my RSS feed”, but do you think they are signing up for yours? Probably not.
Some say, don’t worry about page rank. But when theirs takes a nose dive, hear them cry.
This is just a small sampling of what I’ve found.
So, what do you do?
Do what feels right for you. Stay true to yourself and to your readers.
It’s your blog, your home in cyberspace.
Just remember, the words you write should be words you stand behind. If not, you’ll soon be categorized as a blogger who’s just blowing smoke.
Is what you write credible?
Do you tell your readers to do one thing, but your actions say the opposite?
Have you read blogs that “blog smoke”
