One of the key reasons nobody reads your blog is because you have tried to become a news site.
People can read news anywhere.
But sometimes in the process blogs can become more credible, trustworthy, and faster for news then traditional news sites. Techcrunch, Mashable, Huffington Post are just a few that have amazing distribution.
Many bloggers think just because they have millions of people that read their website they need to deliver them news. They think people are looking to them for news. But they are not.
People read blogs because they are looking to connect with you. They need to know you are the same dumbass that they are.
The #1 tip I can tell people who want to have a successful blog is to be yourself.
People give me shit all the time for talking about my kids, strip clubs, getting drunk, losing weight, LOST.
People say I need to stay on topic all the time.
I guess they don’t know the topic of this blog is me.
Its a blog. Its not a news site.
