Blogging on Topic: Creating Personal Interest?
“I Help You Blog” has an interesting conversation regarding frequency vs topic, for blog publishing.
Here at jules.ca, I try to stay focused on telecom bits and technology pieces. That being said, there is likely a plethora of commentary that could be related to neither. Be it photography or little personal anecdotes. Why? Well, it’s illustrating a side of me that’s beyond bits an bites, I suppose.
Well, here’s my arguement, and it’s completely a personal one - there are about two dozen blogs i read religiously and they’re very focused, but the posts that seem to resonate the most are the ones that show a glimpse into their real lives. Darren Barefoot does this really well. Alec Saunders has it figured out…So does Liz Strauss. And Seth Godin.
So - i guess the question is - do you post on topic to attract an audience, and keep them by creating personal interest?
Maybe this blog is more like a mullet: Business in the front, party in the back?
That’s a shameful comparison ;-)
