5/1/13 Daily Prompt: Personal Space
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?
When I started to blog, I wasn’t sure what direction it would take me. Four months into it, I have a better idea, but that’s not set in stone. I love connecting with the world this way, and I love that there are folks out there who are interested in what I have to say, but this is not a gimmicky site. That is to say, I don’t see myself grooming this blog for more traffic; at least, not to a large extent.
If I find that some of my topics are more popular than others, I can write more on those, but I don’t intend to sacrifice the character of my blog to get more readers. I don’t want to emulate anyone; I just want to be me, and you can decide whether you like me or not. That said, I hope you do. 😉
