I’m going off subject of writing picture books or memoir and doing a post on blogging. Is blogging worth the time and effort it takes?
I just read a post on this subject by Karen Cioffi here:
She makes an interesting case for the affirmative even though the blogging scene has changed so drastically in the last five years. I see all kinds of blogs on the subject of blogs failing, the cause and effect. Even Mary Jaksch has a blog on the subject in the A-list blogging club. That is why I took notice of Karen’s.
Karen cites the Technorati’s 2013 Digital Influence Report and its stats which strongly suggest that buyers still use blogs more readily than Facebook or twitter. She says blog readers like the personal relationship with the writer. I can see that with my self. I am readily to read a book I see in a blog by one of my blogging friends than any other source. I also like the personal relationship I have with writers. I consider them my blogging friends. I even consider the readers of my blog my friends. Hey friends!
So to impress on you why it’s important to keep on blogging? It works. The reason you are blogging for is working according to the statistics. So keep it up, OK?
Here is what I’d like to see in the comments.
Do you feel like you are making a difference with your blog? Do you read blogs because of the personal relationship with the writer? Thanks for joining in the conversation. I value your participation.
