I believe there are two kinds of bloggers in this world.
You have what I would call the “bored blogger”. If my description of the “bored blogger” some how relates to you please take no offense. The “bored blogger” doesn’t necessarily mean you are bored with your life and you blog to pass by time. It means that you blog with no particular purpose. You aren’t aiming to reach the face of thousands of laptops with inspiring stories. That doesn’t make you a bad person. It just means that you look at blogging as a hobby. A form of self-expression and an escape from the real world. Who says that’s a bad thing. I personally think the world would be lessened with serial killers, rapists, and psychopaths if people would direct their negative energy into a positive out let.
Then theirs the “people blogger”. I think the names speaks for itself. A “people blogger” is obviously someone who blogs for the people. He/she like the “bored blogger” looks to blogging as an out let from the real world, in a positive light. The difference between the two is that the “people blogger” has more of an interest in sharing what they’ve learned. They want use their experiences to help you get through whatever you may be going through. Aspiring to educate through blogging the “people blogger” usually does attempt to gain a fan base. They want to feel that their voice is being heard and that they are making a difference in someone’s life. Yes those subscribers mean the world to the “people blogger”. Aiming for a fan base is not a bad thing as long as you have control and remember why you started blogging in the first place. Know that a thousand fans should not change your character or ego and having only one fan doesn’t mean your words are worthless. Inspiration is inspiration no matter how many you inspire.
So I guess the question left to be answered is what kind of blogger am I?
