Know What You Want From Your Blog!
You are ready to start setting up your blog: You’ve got your domain name, hosting and even set up Aweber!
You might even know what you want to Blog about, but one intriguing element is missing!
Very often, this one thing is over looked and is so essential to this process of creating a blog that it can determine the success or failure of a blog before it hits the whole wide world!
What am I talking about?
This: did you ever go sit in the corner and decide what you want from your Blog?
Do you know what you want from your Blog?
I mean other than the obvious: you want to blog about something that interests you or is in your field of expertise
and you want to earn some cash while showing off what you know!
Did you ever give even one little thought to what you would get out of all this work?
Other than earning a little cash if you are lucky and investing hours and hours of work creating content, dealing with mishaps and the eternal house keeping that comes with a WordPress Blog, have you found your prize, your reward….that elusive intangible that will keep you going?
Altruistic concern for your prospective readers and potential customers may even be part of the foundation of this blog that you are creating or if you are like me…..already created!
That’s nice, but it is not enough.
I’ll be completely honest. I never really thought about what I wanted from my blog.
Not this one, not the one I created before this about Diabetes.
I had a visitor named Sergio come visit this “website” and leave a comment.
I always visit a site and check out the commenter before approving so over I went.
I loved his blog…filled with posts that people seemed to line up to comment on and even comment on each others comments.
Friends, from all over the world, talking to Sergio and each other using the comment box to leave their approval or disapproval of his latest post or interesting program or camera or what is changing on Facebook or Youtube or what Google has gone and done Now to help all the bloggers out (Ha! OUT is the word, out and gone!).
I’ve finally decided what I want from my Blog, other than the items listed above.
What do you want from your Blog?

I’d like to know what you have decided is essential for you to get out of your blog, if you know!
