Advice From A New Blogger
I was sitting at a computer in the library thinking about what to write in my blog. Nothing comes to mind. What do you do?
I went back and read my old blog posts to see if there was a pattern emerging. I’m new at blogging so there are only a few posts.
So far they include networking, different kinds of intelligence, a couple of road trips, and things that happen during the week. There doesn’t seem to be much of a pattern.
Then I go to my Facebook account to see what I’ve been posting online. I see pictures and video’s I think are cool, articles about the environment and the pipeline the tribe that adopted me is fighting not to go through, and a few articles on business and technology.
What I’ve been writing in my blog and posting online seems to be all over the map. There doesn’t seem to be much of a pattern. Then I realize I write and post what I think is interesting.
That’s the pattern.
So what’s my advice?
Write about something you have to say.
I was a Construction Worker and Commercial Fisherman. An injury on a fishing boat in Alaska forced me into early retirement. Now I'm a Writer and Blogger. Having to start over forced me to realize people are more than their job title.
