There's a blog Challenge I'm completing that requires writing 2 posts about how I choose TOPICS for my Blog, and how I develop the THEME.
That's an easy one! So on this first post of 2, I will talk about Inspiration in the RAIN!
My first blog just naturally was an INTRODUCTION of myself and my business! Then 3 others followed talking about Inspection related services. I was thinking I needed to Blog about what I do! But as I got to looking around, I saw I could talk about anything! Look Out! Here I come!
Then I discovered contests...how fun, and challenging...and competitive! I LOVE a CHALLENGE! I LOVE to COMPETE! So the guidelines of the competition usually provide you with the topic for the content. Easy enough!
Then I found that in reading member's blogs I sometimes find myself PASSIONATELY COMMENTING away, not even realizing I rambled on, and wrote a comment LONGER than their blog! LOL! Oops! (I was brand new and didn't realize there actually is commenting etiquette.) <<<MUST READ! LOVE this post!
After leaving one such comment, I received a very nice and sweet email saying I should copy/paste my comment and make it a Blog post. So I did! She was so sweet, and said, that it would be a great topic to share. She wanted me to blog it so other members would see it. I'm so Thankful for her sending me that sweet email, because I hadn't even realized that a comment could very likely be a POST instead!
So, since then, I've left numerous comments that I realized were getting LENGTHY, and turned them into a Blog post instead. The Member's blog inspired me to create my own; of course, with a different spin on it, or maybe a tiny part of their post took me off in another direction.
I'm often INSPIRED to write something on the same topic as another member's post, if I have a different opinion, or maybe even disagree. I then write a post relevant to that same topic.
Sometimes I'm inspired by timing and a past experience, and my desire to help. Several posts have evolved from me wanting to help others. Prevent them from having a potential problem or save them some time.
