Know What Work for You!
When you are working on your blog, it is sometimes difficult to know what works. Try many things to figure what will works best for your blog. Before you even know what will work for your blog, know what you want out of your blog! You will write differently for different blogs. What are you looking to get out of your blog? Do you want followers? We all want followers. But, what is more important to you views or your readers’ comments and interaction?
What I Wanted From Writing Through The Soul?
When I first started my blog, I was writing articles. I wanted both views and interaction from my readers. I started the blog to share my wisdom, and I wanted to know I was helping people.
Two weeks ago, I realized, my passion for writing is my poetry and short stories. When you write poetry and short stories, people often read your posts but most don’t comment. I only realized this when I posted my poetry. I gained over 150 followers, when I started posting my poetry. This more than doubled the people that followed my blog. My views went up, but there were very few comments and interaction with my readers. Most poets do not seem to be bothered by no comments. For my poetry it doesn’t bother me.
My blog is not only my poetry and short stories. I also write about the wisdom I have gained over my lifetime. I write about my writing wisdom and about my spiritual wisdom. These are things I enjoy writing about. Doing both give my blog an all around reader bass. It is what works for me. I get to write a little of everything and that makes me happy.
Know What Type of Writing You Do Best!
You should know what type of writing you are best at. I for one am good at writing poetry. I love to write it and I do well with it. That is what I am good at writing. I also love to write short stories and that is another thing that does well on my blog. Sharing my wisdom means writing articles about the things I love. I have followers that just come to my blog for my article, some of the poetry and some for the stories. Being a diverse writer being me more followers.
It took me years to figure out what worked best for me. I needed to be writing all three for me to be happy. That is what works best for me. Know yourself as a writer. Know what you like to write. You have to know your followers and what they like to read. That is my writing words of wisdom for today.
Love and Light,
