People email me everyday about how to improve their blog, how to write more, or whether they should even start a blog. There are countless “experts” always telling us how to write better blogs and what to do to increase readership. I read some of them and some of them are helpful; maybe even all of them if I had time to implement all of their strategies. Frankly, most days I do good just to get some thoughts out. (Typos and all.)
Here’s my best advice:
I guarantee you no one will read your blog if you never write it. No one! Not even you would bother to do that. Not even your mother.
Have something to say? Say it!
Write it! The more you write, the better you’ll get and the more you’ll think of to say. You can’t control everyone who does or doesn’t read your blog once it is written, but you can before you write it. Write it and at least you’ll have a couple readers. That’s a start.
You and your mother love the way you write anyway.
