Blog experts say that you should find a niche for a blog. Mine was supposed to be about quilting and ranting. So what happened?
I realized that I could only write so much about quilts. It takes a bunch of time to make a quilt, so I realized that if I was going to write about just quilts, there would be a lot of dead air (no postings).
I decided to introduce pool, so I have been writing a few things about pool.
Then I realized that I don’t play pool that much, so there would still be dead air.
So I have started to just rant. Following OMGWTF’s post, I have posted questions to readers to entice them to join the conversation, and that has worked.
As you can see on “My Blog List”, my interest varies. I have a few quilting blogs, a few blogs about pool, and a few blogs about people’s lives. I follow these people because it interests me in what is happening in their lives. I sometime get ideas about quilting or quilting methods, other times I enjoy the author’s writing. It is a form of entertainment for me.
My question is, do you follow a blog because of a specific topic they are talking about, or do you follow a blog because you enjoy reading with is happening in their lives?
