With all the writing and posting we do, we bloggers often find spreading the word can be a significant challenge. When the stars align, our fingers strike the keyboard in juuuuust the right way and we manage to hit that awesome note and write a perfect post, the challenge of sharing that with the world can be the hardest tasks for a blogger.
Often we rely on friends, readers, and people who find our sites via search engines to help us spread the word if they find a post interesting or informative, helpful or hilarious. Most blogs you will see have like buttons (similar to those on the left) or at the bottom of the post to help make it easy for those that appreciate what we have written to spread the word.
The other thing that greatly drives a blogger is when people comment on his or her posts. Be it feedback, constructive criticism or even just someone letting us know that we put a smile on their face, that is what brings us back to keep writing time and time again.
So if you ever find a post that you are reading on any writers blog that particularly tickles your fancy don’t hesitate to let the blogger know with a comment, or like it with Facebook to help spread the word and share the post with your friends.
(or if you are really bored I totally understand if you just want to poke, prod and tickle me in comments also… can’t blame you for that)
Recently I decided to take on @ProBlogger’s challenge of 31 Days to Building a Better Blog (A.K.A. 31DBBB), unfortunately this first day has taken me several days as I had to make some clear decisions about where I wanted the directions of my two blogs to go.
So today I give you my first attempt at an Elevator Pitch for my personal blog. An Elevator Pitch in short is a short 30 second pitch that essentially you could tell someone in an elevator, and while this isn’t quite perfect yet it is a good start.
Elevator Pitch for StuartRyan.com:
“What do you get when you take a recipe for life, with a dash of humour and and sprinkle of geek? Life lessons can include anything from cooking and eating right to developing ourselves professionally. My blog provides a cheeky and humorous look at social interactions, society, work and to sum it up, life the universe and everything. I aim to give tips and tricks for getting through each day with a positive outlook and some brownie points as well where possible.”
What are your thoughts, good or bad, I certainly welcome constructive feedback. If you have a blog and are interested check out the 31DBBB eBook that Darren sells which is the one I am following.
