What happens when you blog about one thing, and then change it up? What will your readers think? Should you keep on truckin’ with what they’re used to, or follow your passion, interests and what you’ve learned you have a knack for?
Don’t know what I’m talking about? Sure you do. No doubt you’ve noticed that I have been on a social media + blogging frenzy with my posts and there are some that just ain’t feelin’ it. How do you know? You get the ol’unsubscribe emails. That would normally freak people out. As a blogger, I work hard to build my email list, creating freebies that I think are useful and sharing content that is helpful. So, am I freaking out?
The point is, if you’re on fire about it, and you’ve been true to yourself throughout the blogging journey, that’s all that matters. That’s the secret. Your passion. If you’re up in the middle of the night writing a post about how to rock social media inexpensively like the pro’s (like I was this week between 12AM and 4AM on Tuesday night, thank you very much. I prayed a couple of rosaries before and after the writing sesh, as always!), then you’re passionate about it. Everything starts with passion, even blogging.
This weekend, I am hosting another set of twitter chats with The SITS Girls, so if you can make it, I would LOVE to see you there.
Share your favorite post of the week on their linky posted Saturday morning, and then hop on the twitter chat at 10AM EDT where we’ll be talking about the one blogging nut you’ve yet to crack. Then on Monday night at 8PM EDT, we’ll talk about balancing blogging + motherhood/work/life. I would love to see you there.
Tomorrow, I’m up over at SITS again for the Spring Into Social challenge where I’ll tackle Instagram! This will be so much fun, and it has been all week. We’ve covered Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube so far. Today, the challenge is Facebook! So if you’ve missed it and want to catch up, there’s still time to link up and meet people!
I also wanted to let you know that your resident Latina <—that would be me, was interviewed along with 16 other bloggers by Pauline Cabrera of Twelveskip.com (I know, let’s all commence freaking out + happy dancing) about how to make friends with others in your blogging niche. Do you think you have an idea of how I responded? I be you’ll be slightly surprised. Naaaah, you all know me. I’m all about the love.
Happy Thursday and please, visit the other vloggers linking up with Jen @ JVKomChronicles this week as we continue to get out of our comfort zones, because nothing exciting happens there, right? Right!
