What is the focus of your website?

Why do you write what you write?

I’m not asking about writing a book, novel or short story. No, I’m curious about your blog posts. Do you write to share a laugh with friends, experience, knowledge, or…?

What is the purpose of your blog posts?

I don’t know about you but I spend a lot of time writing my blog posts, so understanding why I do that was important to me.

Just what are the reasons for my blog?

Well, there are several, in case you wanted to know.

  • It’s my Fact Book.
    • A great way to keep a notebook of writing tips and tricks in one place.
    • My memory isn’t what it used to be. Need all the help I can get.
    • Who knows, one day I may turn all of these posts into a book.
  • It’s a way for me to share writing tips as I learn them.
    • Old or new, each one is important.
  • It’s a way to connect.
    • Making friends, meeting writers, and reading about their journey.
    • To pass on the information garnered through these new acquaintances.
  • And of course, it’s a way to share books, and stories, I’ve written as well as books I’ve enjoyed reading.

Why am I sharing this with you?

It occurred to me that some of you may wonder why I share so many tips about writing and publishing books because I certainly NOT an expert. But, I share because I enjoy learning every little bit I can about writing.

So, I wondered…

Do you know why you write a blog?

Does your blog serve more than one purpose?

Have you ever considered using your blog as a Fact Book?

Do you consider yourself a writer,  a blogger or both?

Do share! I’d love to know what motivates you to write a blog.

You might find a couple that will help readers find and click through your blog.

Numbers 3 & 6 helped me.

I added the translate button. It had never occurred to me that not every browser gives you the option to translate a page. Good to know. Also, I hadn’t thought about limiting the number of posts to show up on the first page. My blog now loads faster since I limited that to 3 posts. 

Which one of the 7 do you need to change on your blog?
