New Bloggers Ask... "What Should I Blog About?"

By
Education & Training with Sell with Soul

"Okay, I'm convinced. I need to Blog, Blog often, and Blog well. But, but, but... what on earth do I Blog about?"microphone

I get this question in my inbox and on my SWS forum several times a week. And it's a good question! One we all asked ourselves at that point we were persuaded of the value of the Blog.

In fact, it's such a good question (and so frequently asked) that I decided to bring a few people who obviously came up with some good answers to the SWS Virtual Studio to share those answers with all of us.

On Saturday morning, May 22nd, four of Active Rain's powerhouses will convene in the Studio with me to share their thoughts on what inspires them to Blog - how they come up with topics, what topics seem to work best and how they stay motivated.

And these are folks who know what they're talking about. All have at least 400,000 Active Rain points and 800 Blogs posted. They're all among Active Rain's top subscribed Bloggers, so they obviously offer good material that people like to read. And all attribute a significant portion of their business to their Blogging efforts.

How could you NOT want to hear their brilliance?

My guests on May 22nd are...

Jeff Belonger
500,000+++ points

Broker Bryant Tutas
700,000+++ points

Erica Ramus
400,000+++ points

Loreena Yeo
Coming up on 600,000 points

I think old timers ask this question as well. Booked for that Saturday. Hate to already ask, but will it be recorded and available for the future? Sounds like a great cast you have there!

Sounds like a great line up. I'm not really at a loss about what to blog about, I'm at a loss of time to do it in. BUT...new topics that really interest me always seem to write themselves so I'd love to get some new ideas.

Thanks JA. Looking forward to show. You might want to check the website ecarolinatech.com and talk to one of the owners Michael Sharp. They do a lot of work with Social Media and how to use the right words to get Google to pick up the blogs for prime spots.

Looking forward to it.  I feel like all I've been writing about for months is tax credits.  It sure has been a substantial portion.

sounds good. Your last show was excellent, even though I didn't get to hear the end. (I did hear you answer my question though- thanks!).  Towards the end of your show I got a phone call from a new client, so maybe that was serendipitous?
