    Well said. I have two blogs: one on Blogger, one on WordPress. I haven’t posted on either in ages. To be honest, I’m just not up to the effort it takes to attract readers. And without readers, blogging feels like the digital equivalent of singing in the shower. And there it is.

      I hear what you’re saying Patti. Shouting into the wind can be less than satisfying. The pressure then becomes working to get your word out further, either via Tweeting, sharing on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, Reddit, etc., or leaving it to plain old organic reach. You have to put the effort in and even at that it still doesn’t always pay off.

      I have to admit I sometimes pine for the days when we would join in on G-Man’s memes. The enthusiasm that was shared there was always so encouraging.

      If you do jump back into the world of blogging, I’ll do my best to swing by and leave comment! Your words were always well written, witty and wise.

        Thank you for your kind words. And I miss G-Man too. I still get notifications from Facebook on his birthday. Sad.

    [ Smiles ] Do remember, that we are not all searching for the same things on the internet.

    Granny’s little old blog doesn’t have to compete with those major websites, because Granny has her own audience (That is merely an example).

    Get rid of the idea of competing and produce the type of content that your audience loves.

    Once you build a loyal audience, you are good to go.

    Also, it is nice to come across the blog of a veteran blogger as yourself.

    Keep blogging!

      True that Renard. I have personally been blogging this long to keep my writing alive and enhance it along the way. I know I’ll never compete with the big sites, and that’s okay, but I work with smaller companies who want to make sure their voice is heard amongst the rest of the clatter out there. Hence the notion of competition, but I completely agree that content is key.

      I like to think that’s why my clients turn to me in the first place too. Thanks for the encouragement!
