I’ve only been blogging for 3 1/2 years. Enough time to know a couple of things about what people like and don’t like.
I fear that it may be another 3 1/2 years before I’m capable of doing something about it. Why? Because a successful blog requires at least 3 talents:
- Consistency. For example: Tuesday Tummy, Wordless Wednesday, Friday Fiction or one theme every day all the time (like cats).
- Compelling other bloggers to interact. (Author interviews, Haiku and flash fiction prompts, fun stuff people want to participate in.)
- Expert advice from a blogger highly respected in his or her respective field…or incredibly famous.
Since I’m not consistent, #1 and 2 are out of the question.
One day I might be in the Guinness book of records for the oldest living person who still can’t save enough money to have her next book edited.
Or I might win the title of “clumsiest person on earth.” Just ask the 4-footed companions I’ve tripped over.
