My New Favorite Outfit: Creating Content That's Worth Reading

Creating Content That's Worth Reading

Today I'm going to share with you my second takeaway from  Go Blog Social  Yesterday I shared with you about the importance of being yourself and sharing your passion though your blog. Today I'm going to talk about creating content that's worth reading.  

If your blog looks like everyone blog out there, what's going to make readers want to come back? Good question right?  Meg Biram said "Find what makes you unique and go for it. Be a step ahead of the rest." Such great advise. Why be a re-creator when you can be an innovator?

 Meg Biram also told us to get out from behind the computer. "If you aren't living your life and doing cool things with those you love, you won't be inspired to create original content" Meg said some of her best ideas came from needs she had, such as moving to a new area and not knowing anything about it. She found other bloggers and created a series where she'd get together with these bloggers and they'd show her their three favorite places in the city. So cool, right? If she had just sat behind the computer, those ideas never could have happened. 

Jeanette of J's Everyday Fashion said "Creative work is your gift to the world, don't cheat us." I love this, if we try to be too much like others, we're not being true to ourselves therefore cheating others of what could be something really cool.

Think about a need you have, something you might have expertise in, or something cool and exciting going on in your life, that's where your content should be. Meg Biram If what you're doing doesn't make you nervous once in a while, you're probably not pushing yourself. I love this, I think you should definitely be nervous to push "publish" at times. 

Ultimately what we chose to do on our blog is up to us, but I truly believe our readers are here because of who we are, so we better do our best to make that worth their time! 

To all of my amazing readers, I'm truly amazed that you all take the time to come by. I never imagined when I started this last fall that I'd be here today! Thanks so much and I'm going to do my best to make your time here worthwhile!

Also such cool, I got featured on the Chippmunk Blog as one of their featured bloggers. There's still time for you to enter their Expert Shopper contest here.

  16. I love the idea that if you're not out doing things you won't get good content! It's so true! Blogging has to be secondary to living life!

  17. So true to get out there and experience life!
    Thanks for sharing all of these tips.
    By the way you have the blazer and shorts outfit done pat perfectly, looks great.

  20. What a PRETTY, DRESSY, COLORFUL OUTFIT. If you swap the Shorts for a Pencil Skirt, it would be great for work.

    I like this reflective post too. I agree - content matters, A LOT!
