Hello again, guys! I’m working on updating the blog more often…normally I only think of writing something about every two weeks. In that time, there were several things to write about, so I try to pick the most important thing. Then I go to a coffee shop and try to get started.
Then I decide none of them were worth writing about and give up.
Then I read that if I don’t do it once a week, I shouldn’t bother. Actually I should be doing it once a day. So I subscribe to some blogs I might be interested in, for ideas, and get bombarded by “buy this” and “enter this” and “how to do something really neat in three steps”. Only to find out that if you want the three steps, you have to pay for a class or e-book or something. So I give up and decide I hate blogging, even though I still really like to write.
And this is the world of blogging. If you could only spend 40 hours a week getting people to click on stuff, you’d be rich. And the way you do it is by being an online version of those vendors in the middle of the mall that shove samples in your face when you walk by and try and engage you by saying things that you’d feel rude to walk by and not answer. This would make me miserable.
I just like to write and share life with people and maybe post some pictures of what we’re up to in case some of you can relate. The sales-y thing isn’t me and never will be (however, Dave and I can sell the heck out of a house, so if that’s what you’re wanting us to sell, you’ve come to the right place).
What do you think? What would make you want to read a blog? Do the sales-y, flashy subject lines make you want to open the email or are you tired of that?
What would you like to read about in a blog, and what would make you sick of it?
And how about this? Leave me a comment* and I’ll choose one at a time to write a blog post about your topic or question. And if you don’t comment, who knows what you’ll be reading? It could be posts about how to make yarn out of pet hair and how to clean the inside of a toaster. You don’t want to take a chance, people.
Tell your friends, too, and have them come get their questions answered for free!
*If no one comments, I’ll probably cry and then treat myself to a latte and possibly even some rug shopping.
Who can blame me?
You can do it! Comment here. 🙂
