Great Minds Blog Alike
You wake up and think "hmm .. what should I blog about today?" Not that you do not have anything to blog about, you just have so many ideas, and can not choose the right one, 'cause your brain just do not digest those waves of ideas …
In the middle of something important at work (eg meeting), you think "hmm … what my blog statistic look like? How many people visited?", You go online and check – it is so easy to do …
Before you go to sleep, you think "hmm .. I'll just take a very quick look, and see my technorati rating – do I have any new links? How about trying different Google searches?" ..
sounds familiar? – well, then I think I am not alone out there in www universe 🙂
Having a good psychological understanding behind the above "addiction" (and that is exactly what it is – "opium for the masses") I came to realize that it really is " reigning over me ", and I just have to acknowledge this fact in order to come back from a "stuffed and screaming brain" to the "peace of mind". And guess what, I did find a very simple and working, at least for me, approach.
I woke up yesterday, and the wise, and often very silent, part of me suddenly spoke:
- "Toly, define you purpose , you are losing it, just because your purpose is not defined ." Do you like to share your insides with outer existence? Do you keep notes for yourself? Are you trying to open up, by 'writing you brain' out? Define it – only then shall we speak again "
And you know what, that was a real discovery for two weeks of my blogging period, so I decided to follow my wise insides, and define that hidden purpose.
Make money? – I am making money. That is never a burden to have more, but certainly not the purpose, so heck with all that "make money '," I'll teach you how to blog for profit "," marketing your blog "websites. "Fooo ged a but it!" And the truth is, if you have a common sense, and know how people think and act, then to get those Google ads blend in with a blog, so visitors click on them and to choose expensive key words is NOT all that hard. Screw those million cheesy "I know it all" articles out there – have a common sense – you'll be just all right!
Word ranking and recognition? – sure! who does not want that? But what blog has to do with it? My take on it would be to implement a great idea – give it a life, and get all that "good-for-nothing" world recognition. Why "good-for-nothing"? Well it is very simple: you see the need for more (than already is) recognition is inversely proportional to the level of self-confidence and self-happiness, so if you want more that only means that those two "do not satisfy you. Why "good-for-nothing" again? 🙂 'cause even if you get it, self-confidence and self-happiness will still not satisfy you – this is a wrong way to boost those.
I look at ranking as I look at the game that many people know the rules to, but very few know how to play. But you know what? You learn by doing – so just play it, if you like the game! There is no penalty for losing, in fact losing is not even well defined in this game. 🙂
So the verdict is "to share my insides with outer existence, to keep notes for myself, and to open up, by 'writing myself' out"! that would be, and that is my purpose .
The funny thing is, I am currently "writing myself out", by creating this article, and I do feel "peace of mind" coming back to me. I wish, my dear reader (if you anyone else but me :)) you define your purpose, and join me in peace!
