What's Your Blogging Footprint?

By
Real Estate Agent

There's lots of talk these days about 'Carbon Footprints'... What about Blogging Footprints? 

We wouldn't be writing if we didn't expect our blogs to have an impact - but what kind?  Sometimes they're informative or helpful, sometimes they provide love and light and then again sometimes not. We can have a myriad of effects on those people that read our Blogs. 

                                                  

                     

Our Blogs carry with them their own energy.  They can be fresh, creative and inspiring...or negative, critical and stagnant. They can bring laughter and tears and their own special 'Aha' moments.

What kind of space does your Blog create?  Is it harmonious and nourishing and does it create positive feelings?  What is your Intent?

Blogs can be like a sponge, it's interesting how they can absorb the comments of all who pass through it.  Posts are spaces people move through each day have seen many people come and go.  Does your post or comment footprint you leave behind invigorate or drain?

We have control of the energy footprint we leave behind. We each have a subtle energy that can shift and affect not only our own experiences in that space but also the experiences of the individuals who will enter the space after us. While we may never see the effects our post has, you can be sure it has one!

What's your Social Media Footprint?

                 

      Our blogging footprint probably isn't all that different.  The wedges just have different names :-)

Well Ms. Liz, how philosophical you are here.  Excellent food for thought.  I never thought too much about this. 

When we wrote papers in school we had a teacher to critique us and teach us how to do things the right way.  We are on our own here.  I don't know if I have ever seen anyone ask publicly how they are doing.

Hey Jenny - yep that's me, lol...well we invest a lot of time on here - and we do get some feedback from other a/r members -the rest of the public is pretty silent on the subject - at least for me.....but even though ...we know people are reading - its interesting to think about what the 'intent' is when we right a post....if we're even conscious of it.....and if so how close we get to hitting our target.

Jane - exactly! Sometimes we do all those things by accident! I was wondering how conscious we are of what our impact is.  :-)

sheldon - I want smiley faces on my toenails!!!!

Chris - you got it! :-)

Colleen - yes it is very personal - sometimes - I guess it depends on how transparent one is.......and the 'intent' :-)

Guy - it's good to look back and see where you've been - and then check out where you want to go :-)

In my brief time here I've tried to tread lightly, inform, inspire, expose my self in an appropriate way.  Your question is too much for me to contemplate further at this hour however.

Liz - omg, you are so "deep" for me this morning!  I get it tough and you are spot on!  Our blogs do have a footprint and we need to be conscience of what it is......I try to focus on one avenue but see myself slip from time to time.  I still haven't figured out my "language" though!  ;)

Liz, This is important stuff. I recommend that we Google ourselves and really look at what shows up. Personally I feel I have a very strong blog footprint. I have pretty much always written about what I do, how I do it and where I do it. I LOVE when folks google me.

Liz, What an interesting thought process this blog is stirring up for all of us.  The footprint I want is a combination of real estate and community information with some fun thrown in.  And I feel I'm on track.

Great post, Liz, and a lot to contemplate on. Putting a message out there and never seeing the effect is has on others - a lot of accountability there. Love the analogy.

Great analogy.  Thanks for making me think.  It's always important to remember how long lasting these footprints might be...

Dan - well then you were up way too late! lol I have to admit my most creative thinking time is usually late at night.

Janice- I really appreciate that - thank you :-)

Leesa-:-) It's a process isn't it?  It can change over time....It's those questions...Why are we writing this and for Who are we writing for?

Lee and Carol - it is interesting to contemplate isn't it? :-)

Thanks for the post.  I feel there are some here exercising their First Amendment Rights, but totally unaware of the toxicity of their comments.

Maybe your post should be mandatory reading for us all.

Terrific food for thought, Liz.  I like the idea of the footprint pie chart.  I hope my footprint it a happy one and one that never steps on another's view point or idea to their detriment or mine.

Thanks for bringing up a topic that I have not been concentrating on.

It is something that I will definitely think about when I write my next blog.

Definitly an interesting idea, I would think that you reflect who you are onto your blogs.  That over several blogs you will reveal whether you are negative, or happy, or depressed.
