A few months after I started blogging, I wrote,
When I first started blogging, I felt overwhelmed by everything I was reading. My head spun for weeks, and the learning curve was more like a switchback road going through a mountain pass. With every site I visited, I got more information, however, the more I read, the more conflicting the information became……
Whether you’re new to blogging, or have been publishing posts for months/years, sometimes you begin to question yourself.
Am I doing this right?
Should I be doing XYZ differently?
Should I change my theme?
Should I change my blogging platform? (Blooger to WordPress or TypePad)
Should I post more (or less) often?
Does my content have to be great, or is “good”, enough?
Should I Stumble or Digg more?
Should I comment on other blogs?
Do I need to learn SEO (search engine optimization)
Do I need to learn more about HTML or CSS?
Should my blog be easy to navigate?
The questions go on, and on, and on…
One thing that doesn’t help is reading a lot of other blogs. Read ten blogs, and you’ll get ten different answers. Who’s right?
I say, there is no one right answer.
Blogging is your perception of what’s right and what’s wrong.
You know, in your heart, what works for you.
If you don’t want to Stumble, Digg, comment, learn HTML, include SEO and/or change your blogging platform, don’t.
It’s your blog. It’s your home in cyberspace.
Do, what you want to do, when you want to do it.
Although all the things I’ve listed are important, they are not essential to a blog.
The most important thing about blogging is that you enjoy it.
Do you worry about how your blog appears in cyberspace
Do you stress over your blog posts, theme, or other blogging activities? (Digging, Stumbling, etc..)
Are you still enjoying blogging or are you experiencing burnout?
