We are all aware that a blog business is serious stuff. I mean, we are talking about some people earning a full time living from their blogs. Even others becoming independently wealthy from their blog business.
Time For A Fun Blog
I am as serious as the next person when it comes to building a successful blog. Hear me now, I will be quitting my 9-5 one day and focusing full time on my blog business.
Here is a short story for you. I have probably told you this already, but I’m going to do it again…shhh, no talking.
When I first started blogging I was hysterically ignorant. Yes, I said hysterically ignorant. Wouldn’t it be great to rank for that term?! Anyways….I thought I had to be all deep and philosophical. Write big words and sound as if I had a Masters in blog-ology.
I was so wrong. My goal for 2011 was simple enough. Be real. Be me. Write as if you are all in my living room enjoying a Sangria or soda pop. Inject my personality into every post.
My how things have changed since I made that simple adjustment. Your readers want the real you. They want the good, bad and icky of you. So give it to them! So that’s how I decided to run my blog business. Informative and fun.
What Is The Point?
Okay, you have waited long enough. You know I ramble sometimes. I decided that we have all worked very hard in this first few weeks of the year.
So the point is, I wanted to reward you all with some fun. See, we can’t forget about loosening up sometimes and having a good laugh. These are our blogs. We can incorporate so much with in them. From education, to compassion and yes, to fun!
So here’s the deal. I like to peruse YouTube for comical videos. It’s my guilty pleasure. I found this amazingly funny video that I am going to share with you at the end of this post.
The Bottom Line
In your blog business as in life, all work and no play is a bad thing. We have to have fun and relax at times and our blogs are no exception.
If you can invoke some fun and levity in your blog AND teach people…you will be miles ahead of the competition. So, keep it real folks and enjoy the laughter.
A quick summary of the video. A woman was in a store when a robber came in. She was interviewed by a reporter. A talented and witty young man auto tuned her interview…and it’s brilliant. So here is my gift of laughter to you.
Let me know your thoughts on the video and how you invoke the fun in your blog. As always, thank you for sharing.
