What makes the blog worth visiting?
A technology-savvy government administration professional, I write about what I know best. With recent topics on presidential politics, green energy, social media marketing, and fashion divas, I cover it all. Ultimately, the blogosphere who read and comment on my blog help determine my next piece of content. Care to participate?
Blogging advice or a short bloggy quote:
One of my favorite books is “Travels with Charley” by John Steinbeck. It’s a personal memoir about Steinbeck’s U.S. roadtrip with his French poodle, Charley. I continually quote the following passage as it helps explain why I also like to travel on America’s great highways and the world’s scenic byways:
“In Spanish there is a word for which I can’t find a counterword in English. It is the verb vacilar, present participle vacilando. It does not mean vacillating at all. If one is vacilando, he is going somewhere, but does not greatly care whether or not he gets there, although he has direction. Everything in the world must have a design or the human mind rejects it. But in addition, it must have purpose or the human conscience shies away from it.”
Steinbeck wrote about driving and traveling, but it can easily be modified for surfing the super information highway and hyperlinking across World Wide Web sites. Make sure your blog has a design and a purpose, or nobody will reach it.
