The more I blog, the more I realize it’s not just brand new bloggers who want and/or need additional traffic to get found. So as a “extension” to the New Blog Of The Week (NBOTW) series, I’ll also be showcasing blogs that are more than four months old.
I wasn’t sure how to do this and not overwhelm you with too many at a time. Thus, I’ll start with three.
The blogs will be listed in no particular order.
Dot at Deeper Issues started her blog in 2003 and blogged for three months, Then in 2007, she tried it again for another three months. With the third time being the charm, she has now been blogging for five months.
Being a “mature” blogger myself, the truth is in this humorous post of hers made me laugh. It’s titled:25 Good Things About Getting Old in which she writes, in part,
2. You’ve had a long time to learn to just be yourself.
3. You know that one gray hair is no big deal.
4. You don’t have to care what other people think about you.
Thanks Vered (of MomGrind) for the heads up on Dot’s blog.
The second blog I’ve picked is named Exit 78. This blog is authored by Mike Goad. To share his tagline, it reads,
Sharing some of my photos, vintage images I’ve discovered, and — occasionally — commentary and thoughts from retired life.
This is a light hearted, easy to follow blog in which Mike writes short crisp posts and shares his awesome photographs complete with camera settings.
The last blog for today is named Ribeezie. Ricardo Bruno is the author. Although he specializes in social media, he also includes articles on blogging. In a recent post titled: 5 Things That Ruin Your Blog he wrote,
You attack other people; other bloggers. It’s ok if you disagree with another person’s opinion. But attack ideas, NOT people. To flat out say “hey, you suck!” is NOT cool! Bloggers are a tight-knit bunch, attack one and you attack the entire community.
I couldn’t agree more. Blogging communities are definitely known for their loyalty to the blog author.
So there you have it. This week’s picks for the not so new blogs of the week. I guess I should call this NSNBOTW. Wow, that’s a mouthful.
So my dear readers, what do you think? Is it a good idea for me to showcase not so new blogs, too?
I’m anxious to hear your answer.
P.S. Did you remember to get your blog listed in my Blog Registry? It’s free and easy. Just leave a comment and introduce yourself.
