I am Liquid!

Had to borrow this from my private blog page, but thought you all might get a laugh out of it.  It is all about my new purpose in life: becoming a cat! All my best thoughts come after a lovely High desert stroll.

The Purpose of a Blog Network Part 2

Part 2 of 3 The Purpose of a Blog Network

When you decide to start a blog, you have many options to choose from. Wikipedia describes several types of blogs such as the ones listed here:

  1. Personal
  2. Business
  3. Corporate
  4. Political
  5. Travel
  6. Tumblelog
  7. Photolog

There are informative blogs, blogs that advertise products, opinion blogs, and many other kinds. People like to read facts, opinions, statistics, tutorials, reviews. One can sell products on a blog or sell other people’s products (OPP). Any of these type of blogs becomes popular only if people read them – interaction, community, networking. If you’re going to blog, especially about information, opinions, products for sale, reviews, tutorials, etc., you would just be wasting time if you never had any readers. Readers come to your blog when you network.

Write down the following:

  • Your why/purpose for a blog
  • What type of blog you want
  • Set goals to start your blog

Now that you know your why for blogging and the type of blog you want, you’re ready to set goals to begin blogging. Let me assure you, there is so much to read about blogging on the Internet that you can spend more time reading about it than actually blogging. Join a blogging network. You’ll interact with other bloggers and learn from them – and you’ll commit to blogging.
