A Blog for Bloggers

I have been writing for about a year, I write and post a new blog every other day. There are times when I have a slight touch of writers block, but rarely, I’ve noticed that if adhere to these seven ideas, I can create original content that is consistent. There are a lot of blogs that discuss “quality” content, just what is beyond description. I’ve yet to find a definition of “quality” content that does not define it by saying it must be “quality” content. Quality content to one person is completely useless to another, to me it doesn’t mean anything outside of accurate spelling, good punctuation, impeccable grammar, and a flowing style. My company falls into the self-reliance field, which is a simple niche to write about because I can apply many of my life skills to it. My way of dealing with blogging is summarized in the following 7 guidelines I’ve found that I follow mostly by instinct.

1.) I write for one particular person. It isn’t feasible to write engaging pieces that are interesting to thousands of people while accomplishing my objective. Abraham Lincoln said it best with his statement “You can please some of the people some of the time, but not all the people all of the time.” So I don’t try to please everyone all the time. For instance, my most recent blog, which was published this morning, was written about the Volcano eruption in the Philippines, Mount Mayon. I lived in the island country from 1970 to 1973. I was part of the Navy and the ship I was stationed aboard was known as the port Subic Bay. My blog came to life in the memories of a small child, he was about 10 years old at the time.

He was driving a water buffalo along the roadside. He was in no clothing and was obviously extremely poor. I envision him age 50 today. I have every intention of connecting with the trials and trials of his journey. The theme of compassion is an essential part of my writings. He is the primary aspect of the blog as there are thousands of people just like his in the world. to my mind, everyone will relate to that blog. There are millions of people on the internet today as well. They are all crucial. I will try to reply to every single comment as quickly as I am able as well. It’s crucial.

2) I choose one word to start out and begin to build on it, and then I am reading everything throughout the day. Through that reading, I will come across many topics that are popular with people, each one of these subjects is comprised of words, sometimes several thousand words. From the thousands of words, I will choose one. I will conduct a mental exercise in word association, often in the mornings, while in bed (while I am in the “no zone, no getting up, no mattress area) I will try to think of all the words I can relate to that one. All of those words are susceptible to being part of, or the principal phrase in my keyword or possibly my most important phrase. Through this thought process, I also come up with suggestions for blogs that I could use, sometimes the blog that I had planned to write is put on an off-schedule due to creating ideas for blogs with that keyword that I feel I must write first. I do not take any more than one word at a and come up with one idea at a given time, I’m not an expert at multi-tasking. A large portion of my work is “homesteading”, so if I were to pick the word “ice cream” it would allow me to write several blogs before I could figure out the steps to. Conjuring up key phrases creates openings for other blogs. For example, with the term “making homemade ice cream from scratch” It is possible to start the series of blogs by writing one on building an area for your brand new milk cow. This would be one blog. Certain words are more straightforward than others, weather-related disasters like the word “weather disaster” can be written by themselves, while others such as the salamander’s DNA will require a lot of research and study for me. Most words work, it depends on your knowledge of the subject and your desire to research it. This is the deciding factor. I’ve observed that humans are interested in everything however if you’re doubting this, look at the keywords you are using to search for anything online, more than likely millions of sites are included.

3) I pay no at all to the word count, that’s not what I’m here for. I’m doing it because I enjoy writing, read, and think about people and life in general. I’ve had the pleasure of writing a few blogs with 800 words, maybe some, but but I have never written less than what I can recall. I’ve written numerous blogs that exceed 2,000 words, but most of them are in the 1200-1800 word range, but I am not focused on word counts and I pay no concentration until I am finished. In allowing the number of words to take over my writings I find I do myself a disservice, when I am writing a mediocre blog and force words I’ve found I am able to transform it into a terrible article, it is possible to turn a good blog into a mediocre one similar to this. I’ve never seen that the reverse is true. I write until I’m completely done with my writing the words that are forced appear to be just that, forced. It’s like playing music, (I perform on the guitar), if an item of music is written in the “C” scale and I finish it with the “F” cord for example it doesn’t sound finished and leaves the person listening (or musician) looking for it to be concluded by an “C” chord or note. This is what’s meant by an artist telling the band members that they must “bring it on home now”. As in this paragraph in which a subject has been exhausted, it’s the time to go to the next one. it has a natural ending If I write longer, I am going to be lost.

4.) I use my company’s “mission statement” to orient my blog’s focus, after all I’m trying my best to motivate visitors to visit. I have always believed in a mission statement, I’m not going to copy and paste it here as it’s got no significance. The objectives of the company are set in a statement that can draw me back to the basics of the reason I began an enterprise, and it’s the crucial stuff. It also serves as a reminder of who I am, because after all, I wrote it with my curiosity and ideas about what I would like to achieve by my work. If you don’t have your own mission statement, perhaps it is time to write one. it changed my perspective to my thinking about my involvement in my professional life.

5.) Write for people, not for search engines. My main concentration is always on people after all on the other side of what I write within “notepad” is a person reading it, you are the thing that matters. Apart from adhering to the unorthodox requirements of major search engines Keywords, SEO, and original content , there’s no other thing to do for the major search engines Due diligence goes far. I never cut and paste anything. I never even use quotes, I use links when I need to refer to an article. I ensure that I include 3 sources before I start writing my blog, unless I am aware of everything there is to know about the subject (boy it will be the case) I’ve made the error once and was called out for using incorrect information. It’s not enjoyable. When I am reading or researching I ensure that the information I’m digesting is current , unless writing a document from the past, which is often the case, look up the date of the article, usually if it’s older than a few months it is history, I must know the differences.

6.) I do not pay any attention to making money, I believe that of doing my homework and write well , money will come, it will always come. I’m not trying to portray myself as being in a hurry, which is easy to accomplish than the majority of people believe. personal belief is if a person’s primary concern is money, they’re unlucky, look at Facebook and you will see that greed seems to be causing them to fall. I have a grandson I was working with starting his own music blog. He wrote like two blogs and asked me when he’d start getting paid. (What you are thinking are my exact thoughts, holy cow.) I do not advertise much however, when I do it is usually for one particular product. I don’t want to be the subject of constant sales pitches, so I don’t hard sell anything, many blogs do. However, I don’t go through their posts. If I do make an advertisement, I will use an Link but it should be a product that is directly related to the article I composed. In the example above, if I’ve just published an article on knot tying I might add a link that includes the words “This Link is to purchase 50 feet of handmade natural fiber rope.” In sales, I’m honest and truthful, and when you click that Link you will know that prior to you click it that you are being encouraged to purchase something.
