Why Blogger’s Envy Will Make You Question Everything

In 2019 there remain blogging enthusiasists, with heart, with talent and drive to command gigantic followings and to blog consistently and excellently. While blogging is often a hobby for someone with a touch of the inventive, excellent bloggers get all that comprises Internet fame. If a blogger has a business or a level of celebrity outside blogging, all the more power to him, or to her. That person, I’d estimate, is a thought leader and an influencer.

Blogging can be an occupation for someone who feels she has a gift for writing, or for, perhaps, photography, or who wants insight that extends beyond that individual’s regular life and is attainable. A reader infers that the successful blogger is charming beyond the scope of that blogger’s posts and social media; we are persuaded that the blogger is likable, an excellent chap, full of cheer, and enviable. When one compares herself to the other, especially as she is rendered in a blog or on social media, there is a propensity to try to reach that same level as the other, even if many of the details of her life exist chiefly in the imagination, admired “real” from the perspective of the visitor. She becomes human from expectations in the mind.

If you blog, and you are in the early years of your experience as a blogger, and you wish to rise to a level of success you already see in your favourite blogs, you will find yourself learning, if you persist, how and when to blog. “Younger” bloggers are on a different footpath than more influential bloggers, and while all bloggers play a part in the blogosphere, I know that by the time you’re there you won’t be thinking about the same conumdrum you have now.

Narrowing My Blog’s Focus

I am again curating this post which I wrote September 14, 2016, and, very nearly two years later, September 2, 2018, brought it up to date.  There’s something odd about it.

My content creation tool for Facebook and Twitter all of a sudden gave me a complete overhaul this morning.  I was surprised.  It required me to get honest with myself about content I’m interested in sharing on social media and it gave me a few abilities I didn’t have previously.

I curate content for Facebook because my dad and I operate a little out-of-the-way cemetery together for which we make ourselves available to sixty-five or seventy people at the moment with Facebook https://www.facebook.com/LouthUnited

In addition, life wouldn’t feel right without curating a few tweets https://twitter.com/findingenvirons

The content curation service I use is requiring me to “brand” myself, in a manner speaking, across both Facebook and Twitter.

I returned to my blog after a couple of months and I thought that I would look up the WordPress Daily Prompt for the fourteenth of September, 2016, and go from there.

One of the keys to blogging successfully is to publish blog posts which are useful for your readers, with some focus that will help define it as an “entity” and possibly connect with readers.

Feel free to “like” this post and to “follow” the blog or to possibly leave a comment.  I appreciate you taking time to read this and I hope that your own efforts, whatever they are, are successful and that they bring you happiness.  Thank you once more for reading.

This was similar to a relaunch of my blog with WordPress.  Lately this blog has been extremely quiet, which is why I’m trying longer-form content that might earn better SEO.  There are no more WordPress Daily Prompts–bloggers who enjoyed enjoy were left on their own this year.  All’s well that ends well.
