I started blogging about three years ago with one primary objective, to learn about blogging. I was not selling a service or product, I was not explicitly trying to be recognized as an expert in any topical area, I was just trying to see how this blogging thing worked. I tried posting, commenting on other blogs, creating link farm posts (small farms that were in context, not spam), I joined some blogging communities, read blogs that talked about blogging, etc.
In the end, since I haven’t had an agenda of bringing recognition to myself (though this blog has done that to some degree) I have not been very good at keeping my blog current or active.
The other day, I was talking to someone I met through my social media activities, and he essentially told me that if I want to be seen as someone that has value to bring to the table, I need to get the blog back going again. So once again, I am going to try to revive my blogging persona and rededicate my efforts to making this blog active and relevant . This time I am adding the focused objective of expressing my opinion and “expertise” with the hope of being recognized for what I know.
