I blog for fun. Sure, I’d like to have more readers. Or, more to the point, I’d like more of those who DO read to actually comment once in awhile! I can tell by my stats that I have more than just Janet reading this thing (thanks Janet!). So before I get to the meat of this post, let me declare my own personal “Delurking Day” – please, please, please leave a comment (did I say please too many times? did that sound too desperate?), especially if you’ve never done so, or haven’t for awhile. It helps to know I’m not talking to the “somewhere out there”.
I imagine, if you’re reading my blog, that you probably have one of your own. So my questions are really, truly for you. And you’ll see that today will be a really good day to comment for the first time!
When you post a new post, do you think about it ahead of time? Do you write it on paper, or in an editor (e.g. Word) and rewrite, edit, rewrite until it’s just right? Or maybe you open up your blog and just start typing, hitting publish only when your fingers stop moving? Or do you do a mix, depending on your topic?
Do you think about posts when you’re out living your life? Do you take notes when something happens, or occurs to you, that you might want to write about later?
Do you have an audience in mind when you post? Is it a particular person, or a particular demographic? Or is it maybe for your spouse, a child, a friend, yourself?
Tell me how you blog – I really want to know!
