"I am glad you enjoyed reading my blog. I didn't start it thinking that anyone would really read it.
I used to keep a diary every day for many years when I was growing up. I have a box of old journals in my bedroom at my parents' house. So I really like putting stuff in my head into words. Kind of like therapy in a way.
I think I stopped writing a diary at around the age of 18 when work and going out became more important. Then last year, I had to keep a blog about my travels when I won a trip to Brazil for a month. I really enjoyed writing that. But the company BIC (who the competition was through) deleted my blog after several months. So then nothing happened.
Then this year I have been doing more research into business and marketing tools. One of the things said was to keep a blog because you are more likely to come up on google searches (more content being searchable). Also then clients can read about me and see that I am credible, actually working on other projects and get a taste for my personality.
So writing a blog ticks all those boxes for me. I enjoy doing it, it makes me more searchable on google, I can use it as a marketing tool, but mostly I am quite forgetful, so I want to keep it as a documentation of my journey.
I have lots of blog topics in my head. But I'm not really sure what a reader is looking for when they come to my site. Any suggestions for what I should write about?"
What would you want to read on a blog?
