Melonie over at Workerette.com is gearing up for her 1000th post by holding a little contest to guess when she will actually make that post. You don’t have to be correct in your guess to win, you just have to make a guess in the comments. Melonie is pretty prolific in her blogging. She sometimes posts upwards of four or five posts a day. Now, that may not seem totally unusual, but she also has posts of substance, something a lot of more prolific bloggers can not claim.
I can not imagine getting to 1000 blogs. I would like to think that I will someday reach that number and that those 1000 posts will include a lot of things worth reading. We shall see. I guess that is one of the beautiful things (and scary things) about blogging. It allows us to look back over our writing and see the progression and growth (hopefully) that we experience over a period of time. This blog is relatively new, so sometimes I am not sure where I want to go with it or what I think is worth including and what I should leave out of the blog. But, I am hoping that as I continue and get a feel for who is reading and what their interests are, I can get a better focus. Although, sometimes I really like the blogs that do not have that singular focus, but instead go with the flow of their lives. So, I do not want to lose that personal feeling of the blog.
Its tough to know what to do and what is the best approach. For any experienced bloggers out there reading (Melonie?), I would love to know what your approach has been and how you continue to find things to write about that others see as valuable, interesting and/or entertaining.
An early congratulations to Melonie, in case I miss the actual 1000th post. And well-wishes to all the other bloggers who are reading – may your 1000th post come and go with 1000s of readers peering in on it!
