It seems everyone is blogging these days. In fact, the word “blog” has a different meaning depending on who you ask. It is just as easy to create a blog as it is to have sex (at least in “completing the transaction”). But having the ability doesn’t immediately make you into a master. Becoming a master takes effort, dedication and experience.
People blog for different reasons. But ultimately what ends up being successful is what is unique from the hordes of other blogs on the internet. That is why I love what Google does. They are aware of the massive amount of blogs that are out there, and they distinguish what is valuable content and what is not valuable. Just because you put up a post on motorcycles, doesn’t mean you will show up in the search for “motorcycle”. It is a hard reality, but it also is a good one because it means that anyone can succeed if they can create something unique and put in the required effort.
Are you going to get into the game of blogging, only to pull out because you aren’t making money in the first few weeks?
The question you need to ask yourself is how dedicated are you to being different and how much work are you willing to put in to make your blog stand out?
Here is a photo of some cats getting it on. I don’t think they are actually having sex, but it is a funny photo.
As Seth Godin phrases it, “Be what losers call a loser.“.
What are you doing differently on your blog to stand out?
