The Blog Herald: Rock Star Bloggers, Do You Chase Readers Away?

published this at 4:31 am

It’s as Easy as 1,2,3

I’ve noticed something about bloggers. We’re all rock stars. It’s true and there’s nothing wrong with that. You don’t have to have 1000 readers to be a rock star. You only need one loyal fan.

The problem is that, over the long haul, we sometimes change the way we blog. Like rock stars, some of us peak too early. Some of us get better as time goes by. Some of us get tired of the daily grind, and some buy into our own PR.

    The first part of the excerpt was like you talking directly to me. I NEVER thought about it like that.

    I went on to read The Writer’s Dilemma – very good! You are full of great tips, thoughts, ideas and talent!

    Thank you!
