Throughout history, great artists of all kinds have found inspiration and motivation in the strangest places. This is due to the fact that there isn’t one particular place to look for inspiration. Instead, the feeling that you can accomplish anything comes from within. If this sounds too abstract to be true, then maybe you aren’t looking in the right places. When it comes to business, it can be easy to lose track of enthusiasm. However, you will only be hurting yourself if you cannot find a way to become involved in your business once more.
When you begin blogging for your business on a regular basis, you are opening the door for your customers, clients, colleagues and prospects to enter into a conversation and get to know you.
When you follow inspiration, you follow an invitation to be more than you knew you were. You tap unlimited powers. You can sing, you can heal, you can run a business, and you can meet the people you need to meet. It’s where you take a different track and love replaces fear and ease eclipses struggle. Julia Cameron writes “Our dreams come from a divine source. Moving in the direction of our dreams moves us toward our divinity.” Yet, how many of us, in the name of safety, have spent a life time trying to put a cork on the genie? But that which fascinates you grants you wings. Anything you love holds power. There are miracles waiting for you in the “forbidden country” of your true desires.
Media: Some blogs only post in certain media that focus less on writing. For example, some only post videos in something called a vlog, while others only post their photography and some post their sketches and artwork.
Speaking of your visitors. If you want to really make money with blogs, you need a niche (something to create content about) which other people are interested in. inspiration usually don’t work. Although, there are a few examples of very successful personal blogs out there. I wouldn’t recommend starting a personal blog, if you’re doing this for money.
Once you have your blog up and running begin personal intrest to do some market research to determine what words people are using when theysearch the Internet for your services or products. The Internet has several free keyword research tools that let you enter in a term and instantly find out how many people have searched for that term over the past month. Some will also suggest other popular keywords to use within your blog posts’ titles and content in order to increase your visibility in the search engine results pages displayed when people are searching on the web.
Ask for other opinions. My mom is my biggest cheerleader and my biggest critic (besides myself, of course), but she’s the best resource I have for examining my work. She knows my real voice (what I sound like conversationally); she’s honest with me, telling me if a passage works or not; and she asks me questions to help me whittle away the fluff in my writing and get down to the point. Reach out to your family members and friends. Ask for their advice. Does your writing sound like you? Get specifics. What words don’t work? What phrases sound wooden or trite?
So what is next to be shared? Youtube already has videos down. If you guessed gifs or mini-movies, you are correct. The new thing in social media is Vine. Here you can make a looping video clip of whatever you want and share it with people on other social networks. Lots of creativity found in this little app/social network. I recommend it for the aspiring mini-director artistic person in you.
