What by definition is a “Personal Blog”?
According to The Free Dictionary:
A website that displays postings by one or more individuals in chronological order and usually has links to comments on specific postings.
intr.v. blogged, blog·ging, blogs
To write entries in, add material to, or maintain a blog.
The reason I asked that specific question is because curiosity has gotten the best of me. For years blogs were completely personal. Posting daily life for all to read and then they became money maker blogs. People advertising and turning blogs into something specific and far from being personally in-depth about the person writing it.
I have come to realize possibly one reason why people brand. It’s actually really hard even for me to come up with things to post that wont bore readers to death. I went back and read my previous posts and short from being very personal, I was actually yawning reading them. No one really wants to read a personal blog that doesn’t have a purpose and/or a message in the posts.
Randomness is good but without a specific purpose it is worthless. I am going to be taking the next four days to sit and find out just what I want to convey on this blog. After all I’m paying for a domain. I should get my money worth with it and give potential readers something to come back for.
Question for readers:
What purpose do you have for your blog?
I would love to hear what you use your blog for. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you post and why you blog.
