|I really liked the title. It appealed to me for a lot of reasons-- the profit part and the "without losing your soul" part. Because we've all seen those bloggers who seem to have lost their souls in the name of turning a buck.|
To be honest, I didn't start reading this book because of this, my personal blog. I started reading it because I wanted to learn how we can make a profit over at She Reads. Because we actually need to make a profit or I think our husbands are going to stage a coup.
But as I've read the book, I've inevitably thought of this blog. Because I can multi-task. Because I'm a mom. And I also don't play favorites. Because I'm a mom.
Anyway, there's a list towards the beginning that says all the things not to do as a blogger.
I pretty much do them all.
Mostly what it says not to do is to not jump around with your subject matter, to pick a passion and focus on it. Be a reliable source that people will return to because they need whatever it is you're providing. You can't do it all or people will get confused.
So I made a list of subjects I'm passionate about. The list got quite long and as I looked it over, I realized I enjoy discussing it all. Which, if you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you've probably seen "it all."
That would mean:
Vignettes about life.
I can't pick just one!
So I guess I should just be grateful for any of you who have managed to stick with me in spite of the fact that I'm doing it completely wrong. And my apologies for confusing you guys. I'll let you know if/when I figure out who I am.
But the good news is, we're doing it right over at She Reads, where all we talk about is women's fiction. All day, every day. You want women's fiction? There is NO confusion about where to go. Now to make that profit... and keep our souls.
