This is another very educating post from “Entrepreneur Magazine” but slightly frustrating for me. I’ll explain: One of the most important rule is “quality content”, as in blogging, but how can I know that I’m having a good or interesting content when I write my blog? All I can do at the moment is sharing my journey and the things I read which I find helpful in learning my new skills but is it worth my reader’s time?
Here I go again with my insecurities, as would Jay Kubassek say, it’s my little parrot or monkey talking over my shoulder, letting me know that I cannot string two sentences together and that I don’t have anything interesting to write about! I should just gag the little devil and keep on believing in myself!
So to come back to these five rules, here they are :
- Produce Quality Content
- Be open and engaging
- Focus on a specific Niche
- Use Social Media to build your business and vice-versa
- Embrace each Social Network’s unique culture
So, I am pretty confident on about two of them but the rest is still a work in progress… My two strong ones are number 2 and 5 but for the other one I still have a lot to learn.
From the very beginning when I started this adventure, I decided that I was going to be myself and definitely not try to act or play a game. I know that one of my strong point is my easiness at being with people and in interacting with them so I guess that the rule about being open and engaging fits me pretty well :-). And regarding the fifth rule, it is not very difficult as, at the moment, I am only using Facebook lol!
I told myself I had to go on Twitter but I am actually scared… Stupid isn’t it? I don’t want to spend hours each days on social media and maintaining contacts and contents on Facebook is already taking enough of my time. The most important for me at the moment is to get these blogging skills under my belt before I start twitting away 🙂
In conclusion, I can only recommend that you read this article from “Entrepreneur Magazine” it is really interesting and it definitely gave me some extra knowledge to add to my bag of tricks.
Well, that’s all for now Folks and do not hesitate to comment or give me any suggestions, it is always appreciated.
