I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about and tinkering with this new blog of mine. Trying to make it unique, trying to make it interesting, and of course trying to attract attention. I’m reading and researching from the A-list Bloggers around the Blogosphere. Soaking up any and all helpful hints for a successful blog.
I think in time I’ll try and produce some revenue from my blog (who wouldn’t!), but for now I think I should concentrate on the CONTENT of this blog.
My theory on a good blog, or at least a blog that can last is making as many posts as possible. Although I just read an article from Problogger on frequency on posting on your blog that states there might be such a thing as too man posts. LOL I can’t win.
I’ve been thinking about the advertising portion of my blog. I did some quick research on WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org. and as of now I think I’ll stick to the basics! Just a lil too much information for me to consume this early in the game.
I wanted to add all kinds of fun and cool widgets that help market and increase traffic to my blog, but my options are extremely limited using the free blog option. Not only don’t I know enough to invest in a paid webhost blog, but I’m not ready to invest the money (at least not yet).
I think I need more readers before I go and spend money on a blog! Heh heh.
I’ve been thinking about a weekly post. I want to start a theme of some sort. Maybe have one day a week dedicated to the ‘mental‘ aspect of my blog, and one day dedicated to the ‘physical‘ aspect of my blog. I also don’t want to limit myself to just a blog on nothing but information. I want it personal. Which is why you’re getting my random bloginess! I don’t want it to be just pictures and ‘how-to tips. I want to share what I do, and why I think it can help.
I do want to maintain some sort of balance with my ‘strong’ work between mental strength and physical strength. I would love to hear any suggestion you may have regarding this topic. ( I thought about Mental Mondays? or Tough Tuesdays?)
I’m hoping to start interacting more with those who read my posts. Get some feedback as to what they like, not like. I want this blog to be unique. Take health and fitness from a different angle.
I named this blog because of answer my wife gave me when I asked her to describe me in one word. LOL Yeah, I dare you to try and describe yourself in one word. (Not as easy as you think) She told me I was Strong. I had mental/emotional strength and physical strength. Little did she know it would turn into this adventure. ( I have to apologize to her constantly since I spend my free time messing around with this thing a lot lately)
So began the birth of ‘To Be Strong’. The Strong One. I’ve decided to keep my identity somewhat hidden behind this persona for now. Although in the very near future I think I’ll be V-casting, or Vod-Casting or Vlogging with my posts. So my face will soon be plastered all over my blog. (Uh oh)
I look forward to anyone’s input and suggestions for what you think might be a good fit for this crazy adventure I have started.
