Sometimes it is very important to totally understand the meaning of blogging and the direction at which it is pointing to. This gives you as the blogger a sense of direction and the vim to add value in the lives of others. As a blogger I guess it is better you understand the vision/reason why you are blogging. This explains the reason why most blogs have an about page. I think if you don’t have one, you should probably get one.I guess we have passed a point where we need to define what blogging is?
“The first thing you need to decide when you build your blog is what you want to accomplish with it, and what it can do if successful.” ~ Ron Dawson
Blogging is about adding value in the lives of others, society, community or even businesses and to be able to add value, we always have to connect with ourselves and articulate the difference we want to make in the lives of others. I mean to say you have to identify the value you want to add or probably the difference you want to make and adjust yourself towards achieving that.
“Everybody has something to offer the world. Even rapists, murderers, and politicians. Well, maybe not politicians. hahahaha 🙂 ”
We add value by solving the problems and this gives us the opportunity to create a better life or better options for humanity. Hence the focus of blogging should be geared towards the end user. As soon as we ask the question: how can we create added value to the lives of others? It automatically creates internal competition to find innovative solutions to any challenges around us or may be the world as a whole.
Our hearts should be filled with gratitude which must be expressed when others are doing well. We have to appreciate the achievement of others and use it as an inspiration to create something worthwhile. Blogging can simply be termed as a development of a mind set to contribute to the overall development of others, the society, community and many others.
You will not get ahead in the world, if your vanity and envy thus take the lead.
So if we start envying the good works of others it creates anger and terror in our hearts which could be a barrier to creativity and taking action to add value to our lives.
This is what is blocking many people out there (may be you?). And they are even scared to start something basic on their own. Stop comparing yourself to others. You are a unique creation. The time has come to reflect on your personality and use your strength and weakness as a tool to make a difference in the lives of others. Develop all the skills you need to achieve the vision you have set for yourself. It is not too late to make a difference….
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
I never can tell how much impact am making in the lives of others out there, I guess may be a little or even more, it is hard to tell how rich someone is by simply judging from the outside look.
To be able to make or add value in the life of others one should check how the principle you are about to share have had impact in your own life. It is better and easy to add a value in one life using things that have helped you get to where you are. So many bloggers make this mistakes sharing things or principles that have not work for them one bit. I hope you are not in such category?
