The Struggle of a Blogger Wannabe
So a lot of people claim to be a blogger. They love blogging. I can’t say that I hate blogging, but it’s a pretty big struggle for me to figure out WHAT on Earth I want to blog about. “Blog something for your target audience!” says everyone. So my target audience is fantasy and new adult. What do I write then? Do I create blog posts like journal entries like I’m a fantasy character? I’m 33, how do I relate to people that are 18-25? Do you see the struggle?
“Make it something you like doing, but don’t review books and don’t talk about writing.” Okay, well there goes the only two things I do. Oh, I like cooking, but if you look up top, you see that to reach my target audience, I shouldn’t blog about that because that’s not what I write about. So should I make it seem fantasy like? “Cracketh one egg gathered under the light of the full moon into thine cauldron”? That just makes me sound like I’m on crack!
I’m awkward. THAT would be awesome to write about. How about I write about how I’m an introvert. Wait, does that mean I would write ANYTHING on the blog? Is it possible to be an extrovert about being an introvert? Wouldn’t that make me kind of an extrovert? See the struggle?
So, you’re people (right?) What do you like reading when you go to a blog? How does your favorite blogger keep you coming back? Any suggestions?
