I’ve stopped blogging like I used to.
I used to write what I imagined my audience wanted. That sounds like a good idea, but it’s not. Not for me at any rate. The result was/is that I produced blog posts much like everyone else’s. Sometimes better. Often worse.
But, as I said yesterday, I’m not a fan of noise. So today I am declaring: I am officially off the “noise wagon.”
I’ll continue to write factual posts when I think what I have to say will not be found elsewhere. I enjoy sharing some of my book reviews, writing summaries of writing workshops and conferences and giving my two cents worth on writing tools such as Scrivener. I also like hosting other writers. I think those kinds of posts are useful to both my readers and myself.
But I’m steering away from Hack -Titled posts, such as: Ten Top Secrets of a Nymphomaniac Writer with Four Toes and a diamond tongue ring- A How to Guide to Orgasmic Prose. Such posts spike the stats, but I’m trying to be less concerned about that, and more concerned about connecting with people.
Ultimately that’s what I want my blog to do – connect with you.
