Question of the Day #2

Hello Friends,

I am pleased and grateful with how well the first Question of the Day went. Thank you so much if you participated.

As promised, the questions are completely random. Today I thought we could talk about something we all love doing here: Blogging!

So, the question of the day is: What is the most important aspect of your blog?

For example, does your follow count mean the most to you? Is it your consistency, quality, specific content?

Share your opinions with me and the rest of this lovely community.

Until next time, Happy Blogging!

-Sara

  1. The most important thing about blogging, for me, is to be honest-with myself and my readers. I have suffered from ailments from A-Z, including anorexia, Lyme, alcoholism (11 years sober) cancer, drug addiction, OCD, PTSD, depression and anxiety. I feel it very important to try and help others who have walked in my shoes, to help them have hope, and even help find humor in sometimes dire situations. Love your blog girl~

    1. Wow, you really have been through it all! It’s good of you to communicate with others who may be going through similar struggles, so they can relate and perhaps gain a new and helpful perspective. Very nice. 🙂

    2. Hello I am Blue. I am actually new to all of this 😊 so I am very happy to meet you.

      For me it has to be Quality and great content that will make the reader want to know much and interested in what you are writing. And most of all for the reader to enjoy and to have fun.

      Hope to talk to you again 😊

  2. For both of my sites (see my Gravatar infos) the quality of articles/posts is very important, and that I update only when I really can keep that point consistently good. Besides that, I love that the amount of comments is growing, there is a lot more engagement between me and the visitors. Other important aspects: design (looks and user friendly working on any screen size), speed of sites (measured recently in GTMetrix and PageSpeed Insights).

      1. Not too technical, but one needs to know what is and still must be done. A site which looks outdated and barely loads just won’t work and doesn’t serve anyone. But yes, I know what I’m doing.

      1. Oh don’t get me wrong, that wasn’t a complaint – I write things and post them as a therapy for myself, not so that other people read them. Nothing about my blog is important, it’s a way I get thoughts out of my head. In that sense, it’s already ideal

  3. This one is easier. The Movie question was too hard for some reason lol
    To answer this one, I’d have to say it’s the quality of the writing, as I am my own worst critic. But secondly, when someone says that it was like I was writing what they were feeling at that exact moment and it made them not feel so alone anymore. I write some goofy stuff but the mental health stuff seems to resonate with some and that is just flattering and extremely meaningful to have been able to virtually hug someone at that moment. 🤓

  4. The most important aspect of my blog? Difficult question, and the closest to an answer to this would be.. variety, I try to write on different topics, or even on the same topic, a new style of writing, almost always a new perspective.
    I have never seen you on my blog, do visit and comment.

  5. I started my blog in Jan 2018 for doing a “Project 365”, i.e., one photo a day for the entire year. The only aim at that time was to force myself to be consistent. I wasn’t expecting any visitors, but surprisingly some people have taken a liking to my photographs, which is really very encouraging. So now, along with consistency, I try to create quality work to the best of my limited abilities as a way of saying thanks to all those people who are supporting me. 🙂

  6. The most important aspect of blogging to me is being honest to what I write. I write what I feel and hold importance to.
    And the interaction with many beautiful souls is another thing that I treasure

  7. I don’t know much about the technical aspect of blogging. I am still learning and discovering. However I feel it is very important to build a community of bloggers and keep on interacting with them. And I love the way how you are using your blog as a platform for other bloggers to connect with each other too.

  8. I started this blog as an experiment for an assignment in college. I didn’t take it down, because I had some stuff I made up that I wanted to share with people. It was nice when people I didn’t know weren’t reading. Now that they are… Well, I’ve had plans of going private, in order to lessen my own sense of insecurity.

    I know this sounds immature, but I wanted to be honest. At least to myself. In other words, I’ve been planning to go private for a while. To be honest, my insecurity has been growing since I joined social media.

  9. It’s the trail of footsteps for me. I’d like to hope someday my blog is going to be able to show my growth as a writer.

    If I take work I did a few years ago and compare it to now the difference is huge. Being able to compare month to month allows me to see gradual improvement. Currently, my scheduling is completely broken and I’m uploading work I did like a year ago alongside work I did like yesterday and stuff but that’s mostly just so I have enough content to cover the time I’m going to be doing exams. After that I’m going to post pretty much in chronology.

    Also being able to provide a source of enjoyment to people outside of just my family and friends is pretty cool. It is really fun seeing which new places in the world I’ve got views from whether that be central Europe, the Americas or even places in Asia

  10. I use my blog more of a venting outlet. The fact that some people relate to the topics of my poetry is an added bonus really. As for following other blogs, I love to interact as much as I can, as I believe community is important in every aspect of life!

  11. The most important aspect to my blog is to remind people to laugh! Yes life is tough. Yes there are up’s and down’s we go though on a daily basis. Yes we can get through it. Laughter is the best medicine & support is something everybody needs… And so I blog! Xxx

  12. I have not thought of the most important aspect yet I do have a purpose that I intend on others receiving and that is connections. To connect in on a humanly level. I am mostly connected in the mental health community and I have gained more than I thought imaginable from my followers. The purpose of it all is so that no one feels alone in this beautiful disaster we call life.

  13. It’s a really good question, Sara. I actually spent some time recently writing a ‘mission statement’ as I wanted to define the focus of my blog. I’m thinking of having a page specifically for my mission statement but not sure at the mo!

    But yeah, in essence, I want to open people’s minds to the possibility of God’s existence, share my own experience of what made me a believer, and make people think deeply about the nature of God and the meaning of life.

    Looking forward to future QOTDs! 🙂

  14. What is the most important aspect of your blog? What a great question and I thank you for allowing the opportunity to express my answer. I’m 28 years old and boy have I been through a lot, so i’ve documented all the negatives and shared my stories in hope that my actions can save just one persons life who may be experiencing something that I have been through once before. My journey still continues and although I try to be an example to others I still battle with my demons still on a day-to-day basis, yet try and remain positive. My writing, poems, art and photography is my recovery and reading messages that I be sent on a rare occasion thanking me for being strong and inspiring, keeps my motivation in motion to want to continue to help people through my recovery at the same time. The answer to your question is 3 words; worth, purpose and believe.

  15. This is much easier than the movie question! 🙂

    For me, the most important part of my blogging experience is definitely consistency, in several different ways:

    * Consistency in frequency of my posts: I post once daily. I have so far managed to keep up with this, but there are days where I hit a block and have to really push myself!
    * Consistency in terms of ensuring that my writing is consistent with who I am: As a dynamic person, I realize that who I am will change. But I still aspire for my writing to reflect my character, to be a genuine reflection of myself, even if just within that moment.
    * Consistency in reading what others write: I read EVERY post that comes through my feed, which means I need to be selective in who I follow and very consistent in reading my feed (I have missed days and then I have to really devote time to catching up!).

    This is such a great idea, Sara; thank you for doing this!

  16. For me the most important thing is being part of this cultural phenomenon. I find it perplexing that I can write a simple Haiku and people all around the world read it. It’s like all borders have vanished, and that is an important thing.

  17. For me it’s about learning about others and connecting with them. Finding common ground and someone to relate about. Following someone’s story. It also gives me something to do because I am the definition of apathy. 🙂

  18. Staying true to myself and being real, not posting what I think will get attention but what is true to myself at whatever moment I share. To blog for myself.

  19. The most important aspect of my blog isn’t to build an empire and get famous but to connect with like-minded people. I learned from a podcast that our tribe typically consists of 1000-2000 blog followers to start so this is my goal. I see that your blog is very successful and perhaps I could learn some things from you. 🙂

  20. At the moment I just do it for myself! And I enjoy it. Enjoy regularly writing and enjoy sometimes getting feedback and making connections. I love being parting of the blogging community so far its been really supportive. I also send material to friends and family and it helps them understand my thinking processes around things which is awesome!

  21. If i m not honest, i would say likes don’t matter.. But actually it is human tendency that if someone praises us, we are inclined towards working more upon something.. So for me to count of like matters. It gives me that confidence that i lack while posting the content.. Well its a matter of people liking the content..

  22. Very good question. I am clear I don’t care about number of followers, or likes – that said, it’s always nice to get a few links and see the notification badges on my phone light up. Key for me is consistent output – how much I blog is directly related to how many photographs I then go out and take, and post-process. I stopped blogging for months and correspondingly took very few photographs. Until a comeback this week; and I can already feel the urge to dust off my cameras. Good question. x

  23. Excellent question! For me, my blog grew out of a college assignment. Since I didn’t go into journalism as a career, I like to think my blog is an extension of my journalism studies and college newspaper days. I also really posting about my own life, and some of my fiction writing as well. I love QOTD!

  24. Thank you again, Sara My primary objective is sharing discoveries involved in a pilgrimage of sorts. A journey of self-discovery. Follows and the like are nice but not all that important to me. My about page was written off the cuff, but it is still fitting in, for what I intend.

      1. By the way, I faithfully read your blog, as it is candid and open about what’s going on with you and that helps me, even if you had no intention of doing so. I hope that my writing will do the same❤️

  25. For me, the most important aspect is posting regularly because my aim is to improve my writing skills, and to absorb and build on any feedback I get. I went through a long period of time where I wasn’t writing at all and so now, it’s important to me that I’m writing and posting often – preferably sticking to a schedule but that doesn’t always happen!

  26. I hope that my blog allows people to dream, from the dream to strive to make it a reality. Whenever I would read travel blogs I would dream about how one day I could see a place, or experience something. Now, I am. People tell me that I help them to realize they can have their dreams of visiting certain places or doing something they may have thought impossible. For me, that is everything.
