After reading umpteen posts on ‘How to Blog for your Audience’, ‘Blogging for Cash’, ‘Incentivise Your Blogging’, Money and Blogging, ‘Blogging Will Help Your Pension Fund’, etc. I thought I would let you in on my secret for writing the perfect blog post.
Write what you want, when you want!
This is it, I don’t run to a schedule, I don’t have a tight focus (though the blog is loosely a review site for children’s books), I don’t make my posts for the sole (or mostly) purpose of getting followers or monetising, I don’t keyword load, I don’t run with trends.
What I do do is post when I want, sometimes several times a day, sometime not for several days. When I do post it is mainly for me as I have no illusions that anyone else but myself really wants to read what I write and I’m comfortable with that.
I also have no illusions about making any money from this blog as it is mainly for me, if I do get some that is nice and it will help pay for hosting, etc but meh, give or take it really.
This all goes back to Slow Blogging that I wrote about earlier, take your time, enjoy your blog, express yourself in your way, be genuine.
Though if anyone does want to go to my Patreon and fund me a couple of thousand a month I wouldn’t say no.
