New Series: Writing

Keeping IT Going!

I have thought about doing this series for a while now. Here is the premise behind this series and basically in a nutshell it is learning about writing from the bloggers who write on a daily, weekly, monthly basis. This will be a 4 part series.

To Keep At It or Not

The ultimate decision is yours in keeping a blog going or not!

I know I am not ready to give it up and continue to make updates to my blog to keep it fresh and happening. I recently added a few more pages to my blog as well as updated the “categories” area because the content was taking over and hard for my readers to find. I have my moments with my blog and it usually stems from the content and the quality of content I put out there to my readers.

What I have learned:

  1. An afterthought for me after blogging for about 6 months was having some type of plan/strategy in regards to my blog (lifespan, content, updates, etc.).
  2. Sometimes you feed your blog and other times your readers feed your blog
  3. Remember content matters (get to know your readers/audience)

Your Turn to Share . . . GO!!!

    Great series, Renee! Knowing your audience and interacting with them is so important. In fact, interacting with readers is my favorite part of blogging. 🙂

    “Sometimes you feed your blog and other times your readers feed your blog.”

    I find this too! I always love your content, it definitely feeds my soul on a regular basis! x

    I find my blogging driven by my passion to share my discoveries. Because of my journalism background and education, I am more journalistic in my blogging style. Yet, I find when I share my thoughts and personal stories, readers really react. That should tell me something. But mine will always be a “place” blog more than anything because that defines my unique voice as a blogger and that is what I most enjoy showcasing.

    You, on the other hand, combine place and introspection and that works, establishes your voice. I think we must always be true to ourselves and not give in to what others expect. Readers can tell when a blogger is sincere or simply writing to perhaps please the masses.

      Ahhh – thanks so much for the compliment – so appreciate it:) I write for myself as well as my readers and that drives and motivates me in blogging and writing creatively.

      Happy Friday – Renee

    Blogging is because it keeps me happy. I just wish more bloggers would keep up the quality and create dialog by writing good content. Your blog is always one to make others think.

    OMG, I’ve got THREE blogs now after beginning with The Red Man two and a half years ago. So…I evidently like it and it likes me.

  • Bella Remy Photography

    The last tip is the most important. Get to know your readers. I changed the general style of the content I share as people preferred simple and pretty posts. Great idea Renee, Can’t wait to see what else you have up your sleeve.

  • thecompletecookbook

    I need to keep reminding myself I blog because I enjoy it, not because I have to which takes away the pressure of having to get a post out and rather to do a post when it is right.

    Love that thought. Sometime we feed it…other times our readers do. So true. Thanks, Renee.

    I so needed this! I have been writing my blog for about 14 months. In those 14 months I had never gone one week without posting (minus a few vacations here and there). But over the last two months I had such a hard time finding motivation and inspiration and was struggling with writers block. I decided to take a break from writing because I was losing my perspective and my voice.

    After about 3 weeks of not writing, I received a few messages from readers wondering where I’d been and when my next post was coming. It made me feel special that someone missed this silly little thing I do, just for fun. But that was it, I lost my “just for fun” motivation somewhere along the was and my readers gave it back to me. Just like you said, my readers were feeding me!

    Thanks for following us! We are going on a trip next month (our first since starting our blog) and I wondered if you had any advice for posting from the road. I’d like to avoid any ‘we did this, and then this’ sameness to our posts, and I think you’ve done a great job of telling a story with your posts and not just giving a play-by-play. Thanks!

    • cravesadventure

      You hit the nail on the head – make it and tell it as a story from the road! I do journal or write down certain things throughout a road trip. I write from the stand point of the experience and emotions. Cannot wait to hear about your road trip!

      Have a Great Day – Renee
