My blogs have a message or two or three to share with my readers. The hardest part is generating GREAT CONTENT to keep my readers coming back. Some days it is quite the challenge! However, that being said my readers help me in wanting to write great content.
So Thank You!!!
There are 3 key components to generating great content as a blog writer.
#1 Know Your Readers.
I have found that you really cannot generate and write great content until you really know your readers. What content brings your readers back? I now know what my teachers were trying to tell me about knowing your audience! So key as a writer, especially being a blog writer with so many blogs out there. Really need to stand your ground in the blogosphere!!!

#2 Know Your Subject Matter.
Your subject matter is basically the meat of the great content! For instance, travel. Then you fill around the meat with various topics, issues and questions pertaining to travel. Sorta like your veggies, grains and dessert. Your subject matter helps fuel discussion and comments, which is pretty cool when you actually hear from your readers!

#3 Know Your Message
Here is the FUN part of blogging, knowing and getting your message out there! Also, how you present that message out there and to your readers is so very important too!
- My Main Message – Travel, Explore & Adventure!
- My Secondary Message – Just Be Open to Life’s Possibilities and Live it to the Fullest!
- My Final Message – JUST HAVE SOME DARN FUN!!!

To Becoming a Blog Writer
How I Decided to Become a Blog Writer . . .
Basically I decided to become a blog writer out of frustration. I was documenting my travels by uploading my photographs to an online site to share with family and friends. However this did not document the whole travel experience. I tried scrapbooking for a while. I want to be out there traveling not in a back room of my house putting scrapbooks together.
The travels per year started to increase, so out came the notebook along with the camera. One day after uploading photos from a recent trip and looking at my notes to caption photos I had an idea pop into my head. Where can I document my travels and upload my photos into one program??? A Blog!
Did I start a blog right then and there? No! I am at times a bit too practical when it comes to jumping right into something. I had some unanswered questions, so it was research time. I tried one platform and did not like it. Then I found this thing called WordPress and we just clicked!
Then the journey to becoming a blog writer began! The easiest part of being a blog writer was coming up with the name of my blog. The fun part of being a blog writer is sharing my travels and adventures with other people. The greatest part is being part of the amazing blogging community! The challenging part of being a blog writer is finding my writing style and generating great content. The hardest part of being a blog writer was just putting myself out there, but I am glad I did it!
The Journey Continues . . . Stay Tuned!!!

YOU Make Me Smile!!!
By YOU I mean my readers, followers and commenters. The response to my recent blog posts just continues to inspire me to write great content for you. I LOVE the sense of community! You never think for a minute that having an online relationship would work; let alone truly form a bond with certain individuals.
You let me share a part of myself and I get a peek into your life too! You bring a smile to my face, somehow know when I need a good belly laugh and every so often we vent to one another.
Just think about what we bring to each other’s day, like a online help hotline 365/24/7! Simply the Best for sure!
Thanks Again, From the Bottom of My Heart! Thanks for Your Inspiration & Overall Support on a Daily Basis!
