Daily Prompt: To what extent is your blog a place for your own self-expression and creativity vs. a site designed to attract readers? How do you balance that? If sticking to certain topics and types of posts meant your readership would triple, would you do it?
My blog is a small corner for myself, admist hundreds of thousands blogs that come and go by the time I am done with this piece. Sometimes this crowd seems scary because you can get lost into it so easily and sometimes, you really have to shout to be heard.
it’s just abOut me
It is just a blog that belongs to a 21 year old chick who is hooked with Daily Prompts, Weekly Photo Challenges and checking out lots of writing styles and expressions. I am not a very opinionated person which is very evident in the way that my blog doesn’t follow a special genre or issue. This is my space.
This is where I rant, cry and get inspired. This place assures no loose sheets fly away and no peeking into my personal diary.
To an extent blogging for us is not just about writing. A lot of great effort is also put on maintaining it .. which in my case is activating at least 4 Word press Themes before settling on my current theme. I struggled a lot in the beginning because I had no idea where to begin. I write blogs ( I think I do) but at the same time I try to hammer a few nails here and there to make it look .. erm .. nice? Take it like this. You have a great voice but if you can focus on your appearance and style, it would be like a Cherry on Top! and thus, I keep trying to hit the right nail and I am still on the process.
And finally, … would I stick to certain topics and types of post that meant for my readership to triple? .. I guess not. There’s only so much you can try to be. For me, trying to write or even think about things other than my own interest gives me headache. This will mean I don’t have good opinions, but that’s Okay I guess. I’m still here. It will still be just abOut me
