Miss Jenny Kay, I think your post got the dropsies there, by dangy. I’m a-lookin’, for it, but I don’t seem to be able to find the content in your post at all. Alas, maybe I’m just a little old lady who needs glasses, tee hee…
But let me take a very brief shot at this question anyway, as I find this little interrogatory most relevant in these topsy, turvy times. So here’s my take on it…
Rule of thumb when blogging about your life? I say… just don’t. It’s always better to focus on a topic of shared interest between you and your readers. If YOU are your focus, you will rapidly turn into Gladly the Cross-Eyed Bear blogger, all puns and hymns intended..
What do I mean? I mean that bloggers who proclaim self-interest at every turn are of no longterm interest to readers. Pity parties and braggarts are never welcomed or tolerated online for long.
On the other hand, Bloggers who keep the focus on the SHARED interest, concern, joy, misery, etc. they share with readers, build trust in their readers by letting them know that they matter just as much as the blogger.
