Just when I think I know it all . . .

Someone comes along to shatter my happy little delusion.

I’ve written blogs now for three years, and at this time regularly write in three of them. Each one has a different focus:

Politics: almarquardt.wordpress.com (mirrored on myspace at www.myspace.com/pbthththth)

Personal: www.writing.com/authors/amarq/blog

Writing: Here.

While there is some overlap, I like to keep this one especially separate from my political entries. My opinions can be strong and often inspire disagreeing passions in others (that’s not a complaint. I want and expect opposing views). With this the main entrance into my business, the last thing I want to do is alienate potential readers with my political views.

Faith (some would call religious) is different, because God is integral with what I write.

Anyway, with all my experience with blogging, I can (and need to) learn how to improve.

Cathy Bryant wrote three entries (so far) focused on how to drive more people to our blogs. She included a lot of advice I never before considered – or imagined.

If you write a blog or are thinking of starting one, her entries will definitely be worth your time:

How to Drive Traffic to Your Blog – Part 1

How to Drive Traffic to Your Blog – Part 2

How to Drive Traffic to Your Blog – Part 3

Thank you, Cathy. I now have one less delusion to contend with.

Up Next (stolen idea one): Words. Use with Caution.
