Shall I Start Blogging Today - part II

WELL THERE WAS some doubt left in my mind about previous post that I had written. Actually I think I could not make it very clear in terms of what should be done. There was a sole comment on that post and I think that did have some authentic point. That is when I think I should write this one too. The point was the topics of blog. It was claimed that the topics given there, at DailyPost can be weird sometimes or more clearly almost every time. To this I want to be clearer. 

WHAT I INTEND to say is that if you think that the topic is pretty weird, like today’s is, about which I am not writing because I don’t know very much about Halloween. Yes they have posted the topic about Halloween. I don’t know much about this, I have just seen them, as I remember, in TV series How I Met My Mother, there was an episode about that, and have read in the book To Kill a Mockingbird (one of my favorite book, I have seen this movie too, one of two black and white that I have seen). Now, at this point I would like to tell you exactly what should you do if you get a topic like that. Suppose you get a topic about Statue of Liberty and you don’t want to write about them, obviously you won’t, I won’t, then the solution to this is that you can write about Taj Mahal. Look, if you have enough resources and ideas that you can write everyday then you don’t need to go there and if you cannot but want to then this is the place.

IN MY CASE, there was a time when I wanted to write every day and then I got satisfied by writing less than often. But then again I thought of writing every day. Now the first thing is I cannot decide what I should write every day, when I don’t have a clear idea I don’t write. Otherwise the little charm that attract few people to my blog will be lost if I’ll start writing anything. Now the reader concerns for me here, I don’t write just because I want to write rather I want to interact about what I feel. Looks like I have got deviated from the point of this blog.

AS A CONCLUSION, I would like to say, I talked about DailyPost just for the help. You don’t need to follow its topics strictly because you neither need to submit your entry nor there is a competition for this. And more than that you can take help of this website on days when you are out of topics and you cannot figure out what you should write but you want to reach a perfect 30 that I could not, I reached 23 in the month of September though. So, to wrap up in one sentence, if you want to write a post per day and at some point or most of the points you don’t have any idea about what you should write you can look up here, and remember you can still use this postaday tag as well as the image tag that I am using :).

Will be here and there always

Shall I Start Blogging Today ?


To read my other blog click this link: its me!!! Sharan :)

YOU MAY BE wondering why I have started this blog, if I do have one already. Well the answer to this question is very simple. I will be blogging on this blog too. Okay, now seriously. Do you people know about this site: DailyPost. I came across this site few months back. It is one of the most useful site, if you are into blogging and its importance increases for those people who want to blog but still have not started. I had registered a Blogger account about two years ago, as I remember. But I never wrote the first post, except hello world (now I have deleted that site). Then in August 2010 I signed up for Wordpress (because my bro suggested to switch to Wordpress). But the first and the important take off that I took came in November, in fact November last. Why?

I GUESS YOU all know, the toughest job that a blogger can face is, what should be the topic? About what one should write so that people, at least 5-10 will take interest in reading one’s works? I mean, if you don’t write because you want it to be read by people out there in the world, then just maintain a diary. Isn’t it? So, how to decide a fair topic? Fair in the sense that it should make a sense. I mean you cannot blog about American Soccer or Baseball or something that is not popular. I have thought many times about writing about football, English Premier League, but I did not because no one (as per my knowledge, you may be exception) will be interested what is happening out there in Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge or White Hart Lane. It does not make any sense.

I THINK YOU getting what this blog is all about. The keyword for this post is topic or title of the post. Sometimes I feel sorry for myself that I did not search about blogs thoroughly in those gaps (Aug-Nov). If I would have come across this website: DailyPost, then my post count would have reached 300+. So, you have the opportunity, if you are blogger and you find it difficult to decide about a topic. And most importantly if you have not started just because you can’t think of at least 5 topics about which you are going to blog. Now when I think about this, I realize, that was the dumbest thing I had ever thought, and you are in the same category if you are thinking that. So, don’t waste your time and just follow these lines. Now I am going to write precisely what this DailyPost is.

HOSTED BY WORDPRESS, this website posts a topic each day. All you need to do is that, read that topic carefully, if you know fair enough about it, just blog about it. Otherwise if you do not have ideas about that topic, Google it, or read relevant hint-post, you will find some useful tips. And still if you don’t get what you should write, just skip that topic. Now you have three options. Option one: chose from the archives that means previous topics, option two: write yourself, about anything and option three wait for next topic i.e. next day. All you need to do is, after writing this post, add a tag postaday2011 (currently for 2011). And most importantly, if you start writing by taking topic from that site there is not compulsion that you must take next topic from that site only. It is just for help. You can write whatever and whenever you want.

WANT TO KNOW why exactly you should do this? I will tell you one real life live example. After writing more than 100 posts I am switching to this dailypost, you have the opportunity to start from where I have come after about a year.
