My blog is a jumble; pretty much whatever captures my interest at any given time. Sometimes it’s a scholarly article, sometimes it’s shoes. It’s anything that I have a reaction to, whether it be humorous or serious.
I’m a lawyer; the blog is just a hobby — a way for me to express myself creatively.
I’ve always kept journals. When I started the blog, I had a story to tell, about a mouse. At it seemed funny enough to write down and share, rather than keeping it to myself.
About a year and a half.
At its prime, last year, when I was posting 3 or 4 times a day, it got about 100 hits on average, each day. There were a couple of times, though, when I was linked to by Wonkette and Slate and other members of the DC blogging elite.
My blog doesn’t have advertising, except that I link to Amazon to show the books that I am reading. If anyone clicks on those links and buys something, I’ll make a couple of cents. But I don’t really care about that. My blog is a creative endeavor.
Mostly, me. Usually, my friends, family, anyone who knows me in person. Other than that? Possibly anyone who likes to read the random thoughts and stories of a complete stranger, and engage in eloquent, witty debate.
I think over the course of the day, I spend a total of half an hour responding to the comments, and a half an hour writing the daily post. Of course, that doesn’t count the amount of time I spend reading other things on the internet.
I have an interesting perspective on a large array of subjects, and sooner or later, there will be something that piques your interest.
First of all, you need to figure out what your goals are. If you’re blogging to make money, figure out what you need to do to do that. And if you’re blogging as a creative outlet, figure out what that means to you.
