Are You A Power Blogger?

This post is sorta’ like a step outta my comfort zone as far as posts go. It’s new to me and hopefully will be refreshin’ for you.

I was wonderin’ the other day what bein’ a Power Blogger meant, what was the criteria? Am I a Power Blogger? Needless to say, I had Connor and that thought went right out the window until this mornin’ when I got to thinkin’ about it again. So, curious lil ole me decided to do some research and the followin’ is what I came up with (in mostly my own words).

  • You do not have to post 30 posts a day to be a Power Blogger
  • Your posts need to be about somethin’ you believe in, dare I say somethin’ you’re passionate about?
  • You should always go for Qualtiy vs Quantity
  • Be as different from other bloggers as possible
  • Be timely in your posts. Write about current events, not somethin’ that happened years or months ago*
  • Interact with your readers. Reply to comments, emails and such.
  • Try to inspire people with your writin’. Give ’em somethin’ to think about or perhaps help them in some way.
  • Write at least one post a day, everyday

*I am sometimes guilty of doin’ this

“The number of blog posts a blogger publishes should have nothing to do with whether he’s a power blogger. Instead, it should be the influence the blogger has over his readership and beyond. What’s important is whether a blog post makes a difference in the reader’s life. Does it teach? Make the reader think? Influence his decisions? If a blogger can consistently do any of that, he’s a power blogger.”

I agree with her in what she said. When I write something, 99% of the time it is from the heart, this post bein’ in the 1% range ’cause it’s more like research and I wanna share it with you.

Am I a Power Blogger? I dunno, you tell me. I don’t have thousands of followers nor do I get hundreds of comments on any of my posts, but what followers I do have and what comments I do get I am very thankful for and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Do I want this blog to grow? Yes. Do I want to gain more followers? Of course. But I’m not gonna change anything about me or my writin’ to do so. I will continue to write from the heart on whatever pops in this hillbilly brain of mine and just hope that you will continue to enjoy my ramblings.

Thanks for readin’.

    I just wrote somethen the other day, about how of course I want people to follow my blog and like it, but I will not kiss up to someone or change my views on things to get popularity points. I dont have a whole lotta followers, as of this morning I have 232 and I try really hard to comment when they post something, and I always comment back if they comment on my blog. This was a great post, and yeah I would say you are a power blogger. 🙂

      Thanks for the link. I obviously didn’t put that much thought into it but your post certainly helped me in my research and search for an answer. I have never considered myself a powerblogger and I mainly do this for fun and as a “way out” from my current situation. If you have read any of my other posts you will get the idea that I am somewhat restricted in my “outside of bloggin’ life”. I read almost all of your posts and I agree on a lot of them, in fact I haven’t found one that I really disagree with 🙂 Again, thanks for readin’ and likin’ my post, that really means a lot to me that you noticed it 🙂

    You know I wrote a post a while ago where I expressed my gratitude that people had found me, and they did, and they are amazing too. I prefer to read what’s from the heart than what aims to please, so you just keep right in as you are! 🙂
