The best strategy for a blogger is to find an original voice of oneself. Most people in FB or twitter are tired of virtual self-ads of pathetic offline lives of people.
Here in WordPress, we have the chance to tell our darkest thoughts, most childish desires, selfish wishes without being judged or criticized by a know-it-all, whom we have a lot in our lives already.
Here are the 3 keys for blogging:
1. Honesty: It is more than a “be yourself” thing, as we think we are being ourselves in our daily lives too. Yes, we think, but when you look deeper, we are just playing our roles in life, as a parent, student, businessman, boss, employee, neighbor etc.
I’ve been reading New Year’s resolutions for the last 2 days and here are my observations:
Most common New Year Resolutions and interesting commonalities among resolvers:
1. Blogging more/every day/consistently etc.
Almost every blogger have that in their lists.
Interesting that most of the resolvers did not decide how much to lose. Therefore it is a wish, not a goal.
3. Drinking more water
This is a habit to be developed. Try doing it for 1 month and there: You have a new habit. It is neither challenging nor fun. Therefore I don’t think this will work for anyone as a resolution because developing this as a habit will not make a person feel successful.
I realized that most of the bloggers who wrote this as a resolution are also happen to be book buying addicts like me, which lead them another resolution “Buy less books, first read what you already bought” I loved this. Since I have the same addiction, this is how I stopped it: Blogging more. So this leads to the most common resolution 🙂
Please don’t get me wrong. I just wanted to add some humor 🙂
