Yesterday I was reading an excellent post titled “Did You Choose the Wrong Topic for Your Blog?” at the blog The Art Of Blogging. To be honest, this was the first blog post about blogging, that not only grabbed my attention, but made me rethink what I’m doing with my crazy blog and what is it that I want from it. As a matter of fact, because of the post, I changed my blog’s tagline. What I’m saying is, that when I created my blog, I did it not only to be open about my mental health and sobriety, but most importantly, to meet others similar to me.
They say that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but I can tell you, that Cristian Mihai proved not only that people who say that, are wrong, but he went ahead and taught this old dog a new trick. I have to say, that from time to time, my posts would get some views and likes, but rarely a comment. After reading Cristian’s post, I realize what the problem were my topics. Yes, my topics. You see, I was blogging about my day, when nobody gave a fuck about it. I mean, people do care about my day, but only if I write about how I dealt with my mental health and sobriety on that specific day. So from now on, I’m going to take a new approach at this thing called blogging.
With that said, I’m Audi 5000 y’all!
