I was talking to a friend the other day and we came up on the subject of blogging and their response was “blogs are just about tech, making money and website stuff like SEO etc! What is SEO anyway?”
So after explaining that blogs are much, much more, I decided to knock up a post, for those of you out there in computer land that when they hear the word “blog” it sends shivers down their spines.
OK. Blogs are much more than just for writing about how to make money and how to get loads of hits to your blog to enable you to get more money, yes I know I have been guilty in the past of blogging about SEO ([intlink id="handy-websites-seo-fanatics" type="post"]Search Engine Optimization[/intlink]), but, I don’t bang on about it every single post.
I do have my favourite subjects such as Twitter and it has been a popular subject here on Blazing Minds, but I would personally like to think that my blog has a bit of something for everyone and aren’t really afraid to remove myself from a set niche and go into the world of blogging with an open mind.
Blogging is fun, it’s a chance for the blog owner to vent their thoughts, or on some blogs their darkest secrets, other even use the blog as a way of getting their day-to-day chores off their chest. Some post recipes etc on a daily basis, some of my favourites
When it comes down to it, there are loads of SEO blogs out there and we’ve all probably read them and gleamed as much information from them as possible, but there are so many other blogs out there that deserve that illusion of only been there to make money removed from the thoughts of people who do not understand blogs.
So when someone says to you that blogs are only for one thing, then put them straight, send them to this post and other sites that are not in a set niche of SEO and making money from blogging, they’ll be surprised in what they can find
