What I have not done is replace my blog with an Instagram feed of things I am working on. Even if I manage to post some fabricky porn on Instagram, it will never fill my need to process and share via the written word. That's kinda always been my thing; not gonna change that mode as long as I have the ability to write...
So, I'm pondering again who it is that I blog for: is it just for me? Do I want lots of followers? Will better blogging lead me to fame and fortune as a small business person? (If my small business dreams ever get out of the micro-business realm.) And overall--if I have all these ideas for blog posts floating around in my head (and I DO), why can't I just stick to some sort of schedule and release them into the world like a normal blogger?
Things I have read lately about blogging
Inspire to Thrive: surefire ways to succeed in social media
Just read a piece from them on why your business needs a Facebook page (um, can't say I'll get right on that, but it's probably a good idea I will want to implement. Soon, maybe.)
Coincidentally, the most recent post is titled "What Happened to Blogging and Having a Great Blog?"
Basic Blog Tips: helping you build a better blog
Just their post headlines make me want to read more "what's a landing page and why should I make one for my blog" "why your email open rates have taken a nosedive" "using comments to boost your own blog's traffic"
But then again, I ask myself if my purpose is to build a great blog, or just be my messy, authentic self online. Who has time to curate their persona? Not me, obviously; I can't even write a blog post every week.
Thoughts? Authenticity vs. branding? And how often should I push myself to Just Post Something (Anything) Already?!
