If you haven’t checked out the new look of my blog, please do so. Let me know what you think. Feedback welcome. Thank you for your interest in what I have to say, it keeps me engaged and posting.
Post something original, from your heart, from your soul today. Share with the world who you are and what you are passionate about.
I am proud to be a old school blogger…whatever that means?
When blogger gets feedback it means someone is paying attention. Constructive feedback is awesome and it helps the blogger get better. A happy blogger means a blogger will post more.
If I post something where the facts might not be entirely true or accurate please call me on it. We learn from mistakes and bloggers can make them. Everyone in social media has made a error or two in their time with it. I want to be correct even if I am not right about something.
Language is a fascinating thing. It’s a part of our cultural identity. Blogging is not just an English language thing, its global. Whether it be on Tumblr, Word Press, Blogger, etc. people will post in their national language. Some are blessed to be bi-lingual and will increase their audience by being able to write in different languages.
It’s interesting to look at a blog from somewhere else that is written in a foreign language, but to them its local. It’s interesting to see Arabic or Japanese on the screen and you wonder what its saying. Google does offer translation services but sometimes it doesn’t reflect the tone or colloquialisms that are being conveyed by the writer.
Often times its just about following for the imagery and just to learn something new. I follow a blog where the writer posts in Dutch and English. I think I have seen some Spanish along the way. It’s good to open your minds a little and see what other people are doing and it makes you wonder what their message is.
I am grateful to be able to blog and express myself freely however we all must remember there are places where the people are oppressed and cannot because they would be prosecuted or put to death. May the language of freedom be evident in every blog post we all make.
You are wrong. Plenty of people write full length posts here along with posting pictures and other media. Some define it as “micro blogging” but it’s much more than that. Granted there are not as many bells and whistles as Blogger or WordPress but when you care mostly about content and getting your point across quickly this is a great platform for that. You also have a built in audience of millions of users which is nice too. Keep on blogging Tumblr nation.
Hey followers, I just want to give you a heads up…I am chatty, I am social, I like to converse with my blogging friends. Some folks like that, others don’t and that’s cool. If I ever get on your nerves just let me know. Don’t unfollow me and run away, let me know, I can adjust.
Bloggers who let their followers know they have changed their URL deserve something special…a Christmas cookie maybe.
Seriously change can be a way to refresh your blog when things might be getting stale. Notifying your users of major changes in your site is a good thing. It’s a good practice to plan your changes out.
I have noticed that people usually make the following changes to their blogs.
- Change of url
- Change of appearance/theme
- Change in the focus and purpose of your blog
- Change in frequency of posts
People will be curious and will want to check out all the changes and that can help you get more interaction with your followers.
