I was poking around other blogs today and I started wonder… who are they writing this for?
Some of my posts are definitely geared towards fellow bloggers, like the one I’m writing right now. Really, this is the reason I started RoniNoone.com. I wanted an outlet to chat about tech and blogging stuff that doesn’t belong on my other blogs. Generally, when I’m blogging on Roni’s Weigh or GreenLiteBites I’m not specifically talking to other bloggers. I’m talking to everyone or anyone that wants to read and is interested in what I have to say, Blogger or not.
I bring this question up out of curiosity as I wonder if other bloggers even think about this when they blog. Did their blogs start out by talking to everyone but slowly evolved to discussing blogging topics. Do we isolate those that don’t blog when and if this happens? Does our audience even care?
Looking at Darrn Rowse, one of the most successful bloggers I know, his blog, ProBlogger.net is, of course, geared towards fellow bloggers. However, his other successful blog, Digital Photography is written for fellow photo nuts. Whether or not they are bloggers, doesn’t really matter.
I don’t think there is a right or wrong way to blog. I’m just curious if you chose your audience before hand or if this is something you even think about. That is… IF you have a blog. ;)
