I’m sure it’s more than clear that, as a blogger, things are a lot more personal and I’m sure it’s more than clear that building a solid relationship with each and every reader is simply a must.
That being stated, it’s obvious that, if you are interested in long-term results, being yourself is the best way to go. People are different, that’s how things stand and, obviously, that’s the way they will always stand. There’s no need to think that, as a blogger, you need to always go down a certain ‘proven’ path.
What Do Case Studies Tell Us?
Just take a few of the Web’s most successful bloggers as an example. Are all of their blogs identical? Of course not! Each and every one of them has achieved his or her status in his or her own way. If you were to analyze a few popular blogs, you would quickly understand that there is something special about each and every one of them.
In other words, each and every blogger has, based on a series of factors such as personality, chosen a certain approach. I’m sure it’s more than clear what role the personality of the blogger in question has played, so that you have an important question to answer:
Who Are You?
What are you all about? What is your blog all about? What have you chosen to approach the market with? These are just a few of the questions you need to ask yourself if you are serious about making it in the long run as a blogger.
Be yourself and make sure that your posts reflect that. In the end, answering the “what’s so special about this blog?” question can and will get you far. Having such an approach is indeed a must if you are interested in running a blog which stands out rather than one which always seems to go by unnoticed In the end, it’s all a matter of making sure that your blogging personality reflects who you are as a person, all a matter of having:
That Little Something Which Makes You Special
What is it about your personality that makes you special? What exactly is it you have to offer to the world? You have to try your best in order to come up with an objective answer to this question because, all in all, if you analyze all of the successful blogs out there, you will notice that each and every one of them has ‘that little something’.
What’s your little something? What do you bring new to the blogosphere? What makes you stand out? Before publishing your first post, you have to make sure that your blog is built on a solid foundation to begin with because, if not, you would be the only person losing out as a result of such an attitude. I am convinced that, as far as you’re concerned, that is not an option so that it’s time to ask yourself:
what’s your blogging personality?
