A Blog for Bloggers – 7 Ideas I Use When Writing My Blogs

Oct 12, 2022 Uncategorized

I have been writing my blog for just over one year, I write and post a new blog every other day. I do at times suffer a slight touch of writers’ block, however not very often, I have found if I follow these 7 ideas I am able to develop unique content, consistently. There is a lot of blogs written about “quality” content, just what it defies description, I have yet to read a definition of “quality” content that does not define it by saying it must be “quality” content. What quality content is to one person is completely useless to another, to me the phrase doesn’t mean anything outside of accurate spelling, good grammar, excellent punctuation, and a good flowing manner. My company is in the self-reliance niche, it is an easy niche to write about as I am able to relate most life skills to it. My way of dealing with blogging is summed up briefly in the following 7 rules I have found I follow mostly by instinct.

1) I write to one person, it is not possible to write interesting articles that will be of interest to thousands of people while making that my goal. Abraham Lincoln said it best with his statement, “You can please some of the people some of the time, but not all the people all of the time.” So I don’t try to, as an example my latest blog, posted this morning, was written on the Volcano eruption in the Philippines, Mount Mayon. I spent time in the island country from 1970-1973, I was in the Navy and the ship I was stationed on called port in Subic Bay. This blog was written with the memory of a young child, he was about 10 years old at the time, leading a water buffalo down the side of the highway. He had no clothes on, obviously very poor, I think of him as being 50 years old today. I make every attempt at identifying with the trials and tribulations of his life’s journey, compassion is a very real part of my writings. He is the most important part of that blog, there are thousands of people like him in the world, in my mind, all will relate to that blog, they are all on the internet today, they are important. I make sure to answer every comment as soon as I am able, it’s important also.

2) I choose one word to start out and build from there, I read everything, all day long. In the course of that reading, there are many subjects that interest many people, each one of those subjects consists of words, sometimes thousands of words. Of those thousands of words, I will choose one, I will then perform a mental exercise of word relationship, many mornings while lying in bed, (while in the no-zone, no get up, no stay in bed zone) I will think of all of the words I can relate to that one. All of those words are subject to being a part of, or the main word in my keyword, or most likely my key phrase. By going through that thought process I also come up with ideas for other blogs, sometimes the blog I intended to write takes a back seat due to creating ideas for blogs related to that word that I feel I must write first. I never take on more than one word forming one idea at a time, I am not a multi-tasker. Much of my niche includes “homesteading”, so if I were to chose the word “ice cream” it would enable me to write many blogs before I got to the how to. Conjuring up key phrases creates openings for other blogs. For instance with the key phrase “making homemade ice cream from scratch”, it is possible to begin the series of blogs with a blog on constructing a pasture for your new milk cow, that would be one blog. Some words are easier than others, weather disasters for example practically write themselves, others like the DNA of a salamander would take a lot of investigation and study for me. Almost any word will work, it depends on your knowledge of the subject and your willingness to study it that is the deciding factor. I have found humans are interested in everything, if you question that, take another look at what search words you use to find anything on the web, more than likely millions of websites are listed.

3) I pay no attention to the word count, that’s not what I’m in this for, I’m in it because I love to write, read, and think about p
