The more I work on my blog, the more my motivations change. Originally, it was to find a way to pick a topic I enjoy and monetize it. Now it’s grown to where “Shoot, I just wanna be awesome in my niche.”
I think that making money is still the ultimate end goal even though I feel like it’s dropped in my priorities quite a bit. However, I’ve been reading a lot about how to create quality content. I still have no definitive method of doing this. I have also been reading a lot about writing headlines. It’s a very interesting topic indeed.
I used to think a good writer needed to be good with words but with all the reading I’ve done today, I’ve come to the conclusion that a good writer needs to understand people. I know this is true but I can’t elaborate much further than this until I spend more time learning about it.
So if you take a look at the music blog, you can see I’m using a free theme now. I couldn’t stand my own theme much more and it wasn’t doing it for me. This is the first and most obvious change. The other changes will be more subtle as it has a lot to do with how I write.
I have my post for Monday done and in WordPress. I want to spend some time improving upon it and I think I’m going to link some videos of awesome things.
I got my tripod in yesterday but I’m not quite ready to make videos quite yet. I’m waiting until Thursday when I have my house to myself to see if I have it in me. I’m a really shy person off the internet. It’ll be hard to inject enough personality without sounding like “Oh my gosh, I don’t wanna be here” which from experience, is how I usually sound in videos.
If I could manage making videos though, that would be awesome.
