This blog by Cher’ley Grogg
The Beatles made a big Splash in the early sixties. One of my favorite songs that they sang was HELP. Help is what blogs are all about. Our blogs should give something to the reader, why else would they want to read it? It’s all about CONTENT—fun, fascinating, informing, sharing, or any number of other descriptive words. I remember one of Frank Lanerd’s blogs–it was scary, and compelling at the same time.
The Beatles made a statement that affected most of America’s teenagers. So how can we construct our blogs to be of some HELP so that they will effect someone? Help I Need Someone to write great content.
Research on Writing content led me to this page by Lorelle VanFossen and I don’t think I could say this better.
She grouped the different resources for finding content for your blog into the following categories:
- Top News Stories
- Industry News and Resources
- Tagging and Social Bookmarking
- Most Popular/Highest Traffic
- Top Search Results
- Research: Reading What Other People Wrote
- Facts, Figures and Statistics
- Search Engines, Search Blogs, and Search Resources
- Tracking Stories
- Internet Traffic, Web Trends, and Page Rank
I like to blog about things that are relevant in my life, but only if I believe they are of interest to other people. This blog is also about sharing our creative ventures, so we post things that are also of relevance to our CHARACTERS.
I have a novel about stamps, so I may post about stamps or antiques. Another novel is about combined families, taking in an aging grandparent—so I may post something pertaining to that. Also there are sports, and, mysteries, and secrets, and the list is unlimited in what my characters find interesting.
Many of the bloggers from this site blog about writing, sharing with readers their hardships and accomplishments. Telling of easier or better ways of doing things. I am so thankful for the information that is shared; among which are new ideas, tricks, and technology.
