You ARE Interesting! ... February 20, 2007


It’s a question we ask ourselves all the time “how do I make my blogs interesting?”

What is interesting though?

What interests one person might not interest another, if you wrote about your devotion to Star Trek I’m sure it would fascinate a Trek fan but a person who is more interested in Get Smart or I Dream of Jeanie would probably not be interested at all

Or you could write about the intricate workings of an internal combustion engine compared to a steam engine, that might interest some people
Maybe write about Tom Cruise, Opra Winfrey or Uriah Heep or ABBA even write about a Stephen King novel you’ve just finished reading
Even what you cooked for dinner and how you cooked it including ingredients I’m sure that would interest some people.
Your poetry, your short stories may bore some to tears or they might pounce on your entry as soon as you post it
Photos of your town may be unexciting to you but will be interesting to other people

See how you make your blog interesting is up to you if you are interested others will be as well you just have to find them
That’s what search is for if I type in
“blog addicts” in search I get over 200 people all of them will mention blog addicts somewhere on their 360° page, the top one is Bloggers Anonymous of course. If I put Star Trek I would get these
The thing is to write about what you want to write, what you are interested in and fill out
your lists with key words with commas,in,between,the,words and people will find you

“Build it and they will come –Field of Dreams”

Or you can find them.

That way you will have people who are interested in what you write because they are as well

The trick to making your posts interesting is not to write what you think people might like but to write about you what YOU like, what YOU do its your blog do it for YOU

Some of you have your own sets of rules; your own personal rules like Neddy has
Remember Neddy wrote this these are HIS rules

How to get deleted annoy me a lot by Neddy

- Don’t send me a message telling me I HAVE to read your Blog. Simple. I don’t like being told what to do. Appreciate the fact I drop by when I do. and I do. *points to profile* see? I have LURKING TENDENCIES. That means I drop by when I want, and for how long, as I want. It means I might not leave a message/comment. Not because you sent me a corny ass ultimatum. You will be deleted before I finish reading your message..... This isn’t California, this is Nedland. Ok? There’s no 3 strikes rule up in this bitch. There’s actually a "hair trigger" rule over here. Piss me off once, and I’ll kick you to the curb like Vince Vaughn did Jennifer.....

-Understand that if you know me, you know I can go WEEKS without dropping a single letter on your page. I’m beyond busy. While lurking, I’m at my desk answering phones like Henry the octopus. I’m faxing shit, I’m e-mailing mofos, and I’m dealing with my cranky wife. But, if you were to ask me a question about what’s going on with you, chances are, I know the answer. Please don’t come over here, and whine that you didn’t hear from me in a long time. Give me a break. I already have 2 kids. Grow up....

-Don’t say racist/sexist/dumb shit.zero tolerance. Its fucking 2007 people open up your minds and embrace everyone. Want to spread hatred? Go to a different site. 360° is full of people from EVERY walk of life. That’s what I love about it. Where else in my world could I peek into so many different cultures, learn so much about people? Nowhere. Don’t shit on that. Not only at my place... but anywhere. I’ve deleted MANY peeps for doing just that, saying dumb shit on other pages. I read it. I delete them. Done. Then I get the stupid message..."why did you delete me??"... I cut n paste the dumbshit, put it in my reply, and I never hear from them again. Erase the hate. simple....... -So, to give you the cliff notes, abbreviated, **skimmmersfriendly*, version of what’s above, it’s like this: lighten up and have fun, don’t be bossy or stupid, and everything’s gonna be fine. Thanks

So what are your personal 360° rules? Or Rules of blogging?

The internet is your life - seriously.
