I’m the kind of person who needs to have a reason behind doing something. Of course, I think that everyone is just like me so that’s why I need to tell you the reason why you should consider what I think about blogging. I have been blogging long enough, I believe, to proclaim myself as an “experienced blogger.” It’s been around 18 months; not nearly as long as established bloggers , but certainly enough to get a solid understanding of the basics of blogging. I’ve spent these 18 months not making haphazard, or insignificant writings or jottings to fill in pages and pages, but in intense concentration and carefully thought out, posts. At times, I was struggling with them. The mistakes I have made since I began blogging would fill a textbook and this experience alone is invaluable, especially for people who do not wish to make the same mistakes that I have made.
I am no anymore an “newbie.” I’ve had the same experience. Also, if you’re an aspiring blogger or you’re considering setting up the blog of your dreams, this article will give you a type of a realistic look at this popular avenue of personal expression so you can determine early what you’d like to achieve or even whether or not you really want to become actively involved with blogging. Even veteran bloggers might find some interest here by being able to compare their experiences with my and take this as a measure of how much better they’ve done or what more they might like to do. Now that I’ve caught your interest, let’s start having pleasant conversations concerning your “blogging journey.”

I’ve never imagined myself as an “blogger.” I didn’t even plan to get involved with blogging. I thought that it was just for people with no social life, or having no interest outside of the home; people with a lot of spare time as well as those who are socially restricted, misanthropic or agoraphobic, or possibly lycanthropic (people who believe they’re or could be, werewolves). I did not want any of that. It is true that there might bloggers who fall in these categories however, there are certain teachers, politicians, professional people and their neighbors who be in any of these categories, also. That doesn’t mean that education the professions, politics, and other professions dominated by socially unfriendly kinds aren’t worthwhile to pursue. That’s why I decided to give blogging a go. I was intrigued by Internet businesses and I loved writing, so blogging seemed like the perfect choice for me in the time I had.
I’ve learned that blogging is very popular and interesting because of the variety of kinds of people are now using blogs. Beyond the antisocial types, there are very social and friendly types, and everyone can produce profitable blogs. It’s a true populist art form and that is why it is so diverse in the different kinds of blogs being developed and that the industry is an “content-rich” reservoir of creativity. There are some bad blogs, yes. There are also some extraordinarily excellent blogs. There’s plenty to choose from. Blogging is accessible to everyone to write and enjoy.
When I reflect on the things I have learned about blogging, I first think about the commitment that one takes as a blogger. The blogging process is not the same as writing a term paper for school, where you write one paper and complete it. It’s more similar to being a newspaper reporter but with self-imposed deadlines. Once you have an online blog and people find it, you are under a sort of social obligation to manage your blog until such time as you decide to stop it and remove it from circulation. Naturally, you do not need to oversee your blog, but as long as you control it and devote sufficient attention to developing your blog, you will be successful in sports, arts or any other activity that requires the use of effort and skills.
That is the second thing that I learned: The more work a blogger put into, the more serious he or she is about creating relevant content and updating the blog through widgets and apps. In order to enhance the capabilities to ease the lives of visitors, the better the blog is as demonstrated by positive comments and a rise in traffic. It’s not that difficult to blog however, it requires some effort, and sometimes a lot of it. It requires time as well: With experience, writing blog posts and managing the other tasks associated with managing the blog (such responding to the comments of visitors, taking down spam comments and adding ads) becomes easier and less time-consuming, however there is a certain amount of time must necessarily be spent on these tasks.
Another lesson to be learned is that blogging can be fun. If you like writing and making things, coming up with new ideas and learning to be more attentive so that you come up with new angles and completely different methods of analyzing a topic You will surely enjoy the blogging experience. You will have FUN.
Is there a specific personality type that is best suited to blogging? I was looking through comments on a website recently, in which a blogger mentioned that she believed that an extrovert would be well equipped to handle the demands of blogging due to the social aspect that is inherent in this Internet art form. She felt that the “people- person” would be more responsive to readers than those who are less social and be more comfortable dealing with visitors similar to how, perhaps, a retail store owner would feel when dealing with customers in an actual store. I agree with her opinion but that is not the entire story. The blog is a publicly accessible site as well. (hopefully) millions of people will visit your blog. I believe that it helps make the experience more enjoyable if you enjoy people and are comfortable interacting with them in the way that successful bloggers interact with their readers.
Blogging, however, is quite different than simply exchanging e-mails or socializing in a physical environment: it’s online socializing in that, although you can see the people they are not visible to you. There’s a big difference in having 15,000 or 50,000 or 500,000 visitors attending an event at which you’re performing on stage to welcome, inform, entertain, and answer their questions, and the same number of people visiting your blog, when you could easily engage in the same way in your home, perhaps in your pajamas or with a cup of coffee in your hand. A true extrovert could manage the first circumstance and love it without melting into embarrassing puddles of shame due to stage fear. An introvert or simply a shy person would shy away from this kind social gatherings and avoid this at all cost.
The nature of blogging as a virtual activity allows both extroverts and introverts and everyone else to effortlessly manage the social element of blogging with minimal discomfort. There are talented, innovative thinkers of all personalities that can manage a blog and its social dimension. There’s a crucial point that I want to declare: I believe it is essential for bloggers to be liked by people even if they don’t like to interact with crowds. The reason I am saying this is because I do think your personality is evident in one’s style of writing and the selection of subject matter and words. Your writing style can tell the reading audience about your character and whether you’re an open, friendly type in your life or an angry, rude or misanthrope. However, that doesn’t mean that when you’re not a nice person your blog won’t be read. Blogs are a great way to connect with like-minded individuals, but generally, people respond more positivly to people who are positive. One suggestion I would suggest, in particular in the event that you don’t yet have a blog , but are thinking about it and want to get one: “If you hate people and find them irritating then you can choose a different type of activity, such as buoy maintenance, scatology, or seeking out comets and asteroids from exotic desert areas.”
Another thought that’s occurred to me regarding blog posts is that you can find all sorts of blogs that show an enormous range of sophistication and polish. Some are very basic and even crude. Some are as unpretentious and casual like a chat without self-consciousness with friends. Some are so beautifully crafted that they could be excerpts from the Doctoral Thesis. The range of writing expertise is “huge” and if we were talking about painting, it would be similar to some artists painting with numbers, and some great artists who create masterpieces.
Blogging is so universally accessible that we have to share our field with brilliant professional journalists, writers and professionals (and some brilliant “ordinary” writing nonprofessionals) as well as a small percentage of often inept, untrained “non-writers” who manage somehow to communicate through the written form despite their inexperience. The beauty of this mix of different backgrounds and skill-levels is that there is no problem in such a mix. It is “all-good,” in the sense that blogging is a truly equal-opportunity art and regardless of the outcomes there are readers at every skill level, also who are drawn to the type, subject matter and style of writing they feel familiar with. It is what we call the “Marketplace” in which the tastes of “blog consumers” help to shape the market and the art.
