Blogs are very useful as means to attract our target market. List builder gurus often tell us and encourage us to make blogs since there is that greater percentage where we can build our list. If this happens, we are getting close to what we aim-profit.
On the other hand, I say this with a sheepish smile, since Blogs are free, I set up another blog in Google for my family and friends where I simply post pictures of the family and news about them. This I have no need to be picked up by web search engines, and just pass out the URL to my kids and close friends. Which is another way to use blogs.
By writing regularly (my goal is 4 entries or “posts” per week), seldom does a week go by that I don’t add someone to my network or use what I am writing to make a new connection with an existing or potential Client.
There are many sites and My profile that are nothing more than a regurgitation of someone else’s content. Some are providing a valuable service by being a news distribution source, but many others are not.
Since blogs allow people to update regularly and tell personal stories, readers soon started following blogs of people they know. People also started following different blogs because the writer had an appealing style, an interesting subject or for some other reason. Blogs keep information flowing between the writer and reader, or the company and their readers. Sometimes people follow blogs just to see what kind of conflict or confrontations the writer will inflict!
Soon, I had a pretty good idea about how I was going to build my blog. I didn’t want to copy the others, I just needed to get an idea of how some enterprising webmasters were creating them.
So here is the real deal, fix your spiritual life before you go on a journey to fix any other area of your life. Didn’t Jesus say to first seek the kingdom and everything else shall be added? Where and how did we miss or forget that? Let’s get it right, fix your spirit. Plain and simple. We can beat around the bush another 30 years but in the end there it is again. The problem is in the spirit realm. Get in touch with your maker, make your peace with Him and get back to God Almighty. He has been waiting for you.
