A Tidbit of Wisdom for Bloggers

For all you frustrated bloggers, here are some pointers. I get asked whether I’m a professional Blogger all the time. The answer is no. I’m just a guy who lives in and loves the Northwoods of Wisconsin. And I like to write. That’s it.

I don’t write anything unless I feel moved or inspired by something. Blogging means writing about what is on your mind, what interest you, or what is happening in your life. You can’t force a blog. If you don’t feel inspired to share in a blog – then don’t.  Put it off until you feel inspired. Also, one cardinal rule that you should never violate is that regardless of your blog subject matter, share something that folks can take away after reading your blog. Something that will help them down the bumpy path of life and make them feel better for having read your post.

Lastly, stay positive and upbeat. Blogs are supposed to be interesting and fun. Since it is your weblog, you are entitled to write about whatever you want. But I don’t mix controversial subjects in with my primary blog. I put controversial subjects in a separate place called “Scott’s Rant”. So if someone wants to read on my opinions of world events, people, or places, they know where to find those posts.

      I get asked that a lot. Take a look at the FAQ page. The first two questions and answers tell the story of the theme and colors.
