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.
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.
