I am always on the lookout for new bloggers to follow. I’ve found this a very rewarding journey. I tend to read blogs based on ideas or topics that I’ve been interested in, but I have had some great ones that jump right out of the posts. In my first week of blogging, I joined several other bloggers. One of them was an author and blogger named Lisa from My Blogspace.
Lisa is one of those bloggers who focuses on the more personal aspects of things. She writes about her life, her hobbies, and how she thinks the world needs to change. With that in mind, I followed her to her blog which is a well written collection of posts about everyday life. I had a lot of fun reading her blog and it definitely made me think about blogging more. Thanks Lisa.
Lisa’s blog is a great source for inspiration. It just might turn out to be a good thing if you’re blogging to make yourself happy and find something to talk about.
I enjoyed Lisa’s blog so much that I decided to follow her to her blog. Not only is it a great source for your daily inspiration, but it also offers a place to go after you’ve read all the other great posts of yours.
I’m glad you enjoyed her blog. I think I’ll stick to my posts on my blog.
I think a lot of people who blog on a regular basis don’t have the self-awareness to know they’ve done something amiss. Blogging is one of those things that seems like such a trivial thing to do. In the eyes of Google, that’s not true at all. It is one of those things that is so easy to do that it doesn’t seem to matter that you’ve done it.
While blogging about a great movie (or a great book or something else), you can get the same kind of attention from your readers that you get from the mainstream media. The only difference is that you get it from someone who actually reads your blog. You can also get lots of attention from people who don’t read your blog and want to know where you’re from.
Google is really interested in how you write, when you write, and why you write. Since we all have opinions on what is important to us, the more we write about the topics that matter to us, and the more we explain the why behind our opinions, the more Google will like what we have to say.
Another thing that Google is interested in is your writing style. What is your writing style like? What do you write about? What are your strengths and weaknesses? What are your influences? How do you write? What makes you different from other people? How do you know what you’re writing is good? These are questions they are eager to hear about because they want to know where you stand and what you are trying to express (their “own interests”).
We at the Brainstorm Challenge have our own writing styles, and some people may not like the way we write. We are what we are because we are who we are. We like to use our experiences and opinions to express our thoughts. We like to try to be concise and to avoid long sentences. We like to get to the point quickly and to keep our writing fresh and interesting. We like to use simple phrases.
