How do you determine what is interesting or amusing for a blog?

Asked by tWrex (1655points) September 15th, 2008

This conversation kind of made me think, what really makes what the hell I have to say interesting or amusing? How can you gauge that? It’s something I’ve been curious about for quite some time.

whatever you find interesting or amusing is what you should blog about. Nothing else. If you do not have a passion for it you will not do it for very long.

I have a blog that I use to post my photos, so I can see improvments in myself on my way to become a professional. Love what you do or don’t do it.

Write for yourself. Chances are that you are not the only person in the world that shares your interests, and other people will be willing to read. Promote your work well, and away you go.

Ok. I can dig it. What would be suggestions about tone? Because I find that sometimes my tone is… colorful. I use epithets to “enhance” the mood of how I feel or think about a situation, but I think people don’t consider it a “serious” blog or idea because of this. I find it asinine especially since most of my thoughts are well put and versed and my lexicon is rather large. Should this be another question? I bet it should.

the cool thing about making a blog also is that it can be free. So if you get one follower or 10,000 it dosent matter. Just enjoy what you do and have fun enlightning the Internet.

Asking this question is precisely why I stopped blogging, sadly.

Recently I saw a video where Darren Rowse of told that he used Mind Maps, which I think is a really good tool for planning what you write about. I wrote a very short article about this:
