One After the Other
I am simply amazed that this little blog has hit and continues to hit in the 100’s on good days – adventurers (visitors) that is! I know it is silly to blog about this; however, it is exciting for me. It is exciting for me because my blog is finding its stride! A huge part of this little blog finding its stride is due to the readers, followers (almost 600 of you) and commenters. I know how much you love to “armchair travel” with me – ha!

Going to Let it Shine!!!
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!!!
