Build Blog Confidence: 4 Blogging Questions Answered

3 Comments 1085 views

Ryan wrote yet another awesome post on his blog NoMoreBacon. In it he talks about 4 questions all bloggers should ask themselves and I feel compelled to not only share but answer them as well. Questions and my answers below…

Could I describe my blog to a friend in 3 sentences or less?

YES! I think I can and this makes me feel good about my 2 personal blogs. Let me take a stab…

Roni’s Weigh is my personal weigh loss and weight maintenance blog. I share my life (struggles and successes) to inspire others to live a little healthier.

GreenLiteBites is all about food! I share how I TRY to feed my family a little healthier, what I cook for myself and how I make what I make. It includes food photos, recipes, school lunch ideas and baby food adventures.

Would I subscribe to my own blog?

This is a tough one. I don’t subscribe to many blogs (NoMoreBacon being one of a handful.) That being said I would subscribe to GreenLiteBites because the feed includes a photo of the most recent recipe and I like food photos.

If I’m being honest, I don’t think I would subscribe to Roni’s Weigh but I’d bookmark it. I don’t subscribe to many journal style blogs because they get overwhelming to follow, but I like to check in on that type of blogger when I have time. Hence the bookmark.

Where am I taking my readers?

Good question! It’s kind of hard to answer on Roni’s Weigh as I’m giving them a peek into my life. A lot of things are out of my control, but my plan is to always be honest with my readers and share things I think will inspire and motivate others.

GreenLiteBites is similar. I’m sharing my adventures with food. I hope to get a little healthier along the way and inspire those who are reading to do so as well.

On both blogs I guess you can say I’m taking them along for the ride that is my life.

What promise am I making with my blog?

My promise to be honest on Roni’s Weigh. As someone who is sharing a weight loss story I want the good, the bad and the ugly out there. Too many times people sugar coat weight loss stories and I think it does a disservice to the reader.

On GreenLiteBites I promise to do my best to share good healthy food ideas.

Conclusion

Even if you blog for a hobby, DO THIS! I can’t stress how helpful it is to clarify your mission and build blog confidence.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    No fair! You had legitimate answers to all of the questions :) Seriously though, it’s such a good exercise. I’m going to make myself do it every month. I mean every week. I mean every day!

    In all seriousness, I’d be willing to bet that the success you have had stems from your hard work and the fact that you can answer the questions so clearly!

    I have just started my blog and I’m feel like I’m drowning in the technical components, trying to get people to read my blog, and maybe actually spending time on my posts. It’s draining process and I do sometimes for get to actually look at what I’m doing instead of just trying to do something.
