Dear Blogger

There are millions of blogs on the net. The new web 2.0 craze has truly caught on. From stay at home moms, to teenagers, to your granny writing about her life. Everybody has a blog. Some are good and people actually make money, but most are dreadful. Because of this there are tons of posts, tutorials and articles about blogging. What to do and what not to do.

All these tutorials take aon the general format of either a tutorial style of writing, or a list of do's and dont's. Which is great and is very effective. But what about approaching this subject from another point of view.

The purpose of any blog is to be informative to your readers. To gain readership and retain readership. Otherwise you're just writing to yourself. In my humble opinion, that is. So all of these tutorials and articles about blogging are mostly concerned about this point in particular.

Here is the same point but looked at from a different direction. A letter sent to the blogger in question detailing in a constructive way, what is wrong with his blog. The reader informs the blogger that he is cancelling hi subscription to his blog, and is no longer going to read it. He then list the reasons why.

This is  fantastic new way of getting the point across. It brings the reality of the reader to mind. As bloggers, we have always been told what to do and what not to do, but have never seen it from the readers, or clients point of view. This article does just that. It makes us think of who we are targeting.

Some times we do things because we like them, It suits us, and makes us feel all fuzzy inside. But if it does not appeal to our readership then it is pointless. An example pointed out in this letter is the aspect of advertising, or the over emphasis on advertising. Sure, it might benefit you, and bring in the cash. But how many of you readers are actually irritated by all the ads on your blog. This is just one example of looking at the readers point of view.

There are certainly a few points that I can take to heart. This has reminded me to re-look at my own blog posts.

Take a look at the article, it is very informative and enlightening. Point your browser to Dear Blogger.
