I was just reading from one of my many RSS feeds about monetizing ones blog. Reading through this particular bloggers post I came across a subheading very similar to my title. In fact this is where I got the idea from. He stated that there is nothing magical about a blog.
While that statement in essence might be true, I wondered if it was true about my particular blog. Is there anything magical about my blog?
Have you asked yourself the question? Is there anything magical about my blog? If the answer is not. Then I’m afraid you and your blog need some help. If your blog is not magical to you, how do you expect others will see it.
Every blog has it’s own character. Every blogger aims at a particular niche. So every blog is different. But the magic is something that sets your blog apart from the rest. Something that grabs the attention of the reader. Your posts change their thought patterns. It enhances their day. They are glad that they made the effort to read your blog.
Magic carries that sense of awe, of disbelief yet a sense of wonder. I do Gospel magic for kids. You cant believe how much they enjoy it. They always want more. They always have a response, always have their own idea as to how the magic is done.
Our blog should be no different. There should be a sense of awe, of wonder. It should encourage readers to want more. To start up conversations. to engage their minds.
Because each blog is different there is no hard and fast rule. No ‘one’ recipe that will magically change your blog. The magic has to come from within you.
Here are a few things to consider.
So does your blog bring out the sparkle in my eye? Am I happy to have been there and read your post. If your blog and my blog does not have that something special, then we are just another drop in the ocean. Not making an ounce of difference.
Transform your blog into something magical.
