Icing On The Blogging Cake

It was back in 2006 when I got bitten by the blogging bug. My background as a nurse and artist did not train me to write or host a radio show. To do both, I found what is most needed is these three traits passion, consistency, and uniqueness. 

 

-Passion-

Anyone who knows me has experienced my passion, whether it was my nursing, ceramic art, or my 47-year marriage, where we counted every day. I love what I do! The passion drives me. 

 

-Consistency-

When you love what you do, it's natural to sustain a routine, including daily phone calls and daily commenting. And on that same note showing up and hosting a live weekly radio show. 

 

-Uniqueness-

Marching to your drummer and stick to your convictions. Don't be afraid to try a new concept. Instead of looking for approval, find what works for you. Some call it " your blogging voice." That's when your followers recognize your writing without seeing your signature attached. 

Please yourself, and others may appreciate your style. 

My favorite time to post a blog is at night and checking first thing in the morning to see any responses because-

Comments are the icing on the blogging cake.

Margaret, you are an AMAZING individual...you've accomplished so much, and I had not idea you had a nursing background. That's why you take such "good care" of your business and all that you do!

Take care my friend!

I want a piece of that cake! I remember Lee making a comment about your passion for things. It was a flashback as soon as I read it. Back to Blogging soon. Water seeks its own level.

Hi Margaret- all anyone had to do is spend 10 minutes on the phone with you to see how passionate you are about what you do and the people in your life. No matter what we do in our lives, if we can achieve that passion, we will have what I'd call a successful and blessed life.

Kathy Streib, I see that same passion in you, whether you share your staging advice, talk about your Larry, your weekly posting of  "ah-ha" moments, or attend and coordinate the weekly zooms!

And I agree:

"No matter what we do in our lives, if we can achieve that passion, we will have what I'd call a successful and blessed life."

Just  got back to a place with power and I had to get on to read your Sunday blog.  You are so right, to blog you have to have  a passion.  I am still looking for mine.  Be safe and warm.

Gwen Banta, it Sounds like there is some passion you are showing  by wanting to get back on to read a blog.

I think if you interact with more members, that passion comes a bit faster.
