I Need Your Help

  1. I’ve been wondering about this same thing and I’m still not too sure what I think about it. One of the things I liked about your blog was that it was NOT about just one thing, but was neatly divided up so that people could pick and choose what to read. I don’t want to read about the same things every day and I don’t think I want to write about the same things every day. I understand that a focused blog is probably more likely to develop a “fan base” or something like that – but I don’t know…I’ll get back to you if I think there’s one thing that you should ramble on about more than anything else.

    1. Thanks for the feedback Patti…I was thinking a lot about this yesterday after I wrote this up…I think you might be right on that too…

  2. I don’t think you have to limit yourself to one topic to stay focused. Let me explain. One of my favourite type of blogs is a mom-blog, and I don’t know what the technical term is, that’s just what I call them. They’re blogs that feature attractive photos of smiling, sleeping, playing, reading, focused, having-fun children – the BLOGGER’S children – and musings on life as a mother. Some are topic-driven, yes. For instance, one I follow is a blog about how to make each day magical with kids, and includes lists of activities to try, links to blogs where other creative moms have posted neat crafts, and more. But still others are simply, “This is my life – welcome to it.”

    In other words, your “focus” could be MIKE. What is Mike thinking about today? What has he gone through? What conversation did he overhear at the coffee shop this morning? What happened when he got stuck in the elevator at work last week? Where is he going on vacation in March? What did he dream about last night that had a strange coincidental tie-in to the day that followed? What did a stranger say to him at the gas station that made him think? What website did he discover while suffering from insomnia last night and thought it was fascinating enough to share? What kind of car is he shopping for now that his trusty old one is on its last leg? What did he just learn how to repair? What new video game did his teenage nephew just introduce him to?

    See what I’m saying? It can be a blog about MIKE but doesn’t have to be only “Mike’s thoughts on science” or “Mike’s musings on family” or “Mike’s favourite websites.”

    But then…I’m no expert. 🙂

    1. I definitely see what you are saying there and it makes a whole lot of sense…that’s kinda the feedback I am looking for too…there is a focus there…I just wasn’t seeing it
