I saw this today on Twitter.
I immediately “favourited” and retweeted it.
And, I think it applies to blogging, too.
If I start to water me down just so I can get a few more followers, then shame on me! When I begin to care more about the statistics of my blog and tailoring it to reach a certain demographic or making it palatable to a wider audience, it is no longer an expression of myself…which is, generally, what this blog is about.
So, my advice to new bloggers? Take a page out of mine and @Laughbook’s book and be true to yourself. Blog like nobody’s watching, reading or judging. Just blog!
