Finally, while I hate to see these numbers when I consider them as a writer, as a reader I’m not surprised. I read tons of articles every day. I share dozens of links on Twitter and Facebook. But how many do I read in full? How many do I share after reading the full thing? Honestly—and I feel comfortable saying this because even mom’s stopped reading at this point—not too many. I wonder, too, if this applies to more than just the Web. With ebooks and streaming movies and TV shows, it’s easier than ever, now, to switch to something else. In the past year my wife and I have watched at least a half-dozen movies to about the 60 percent mark. There are several books on my Kindle I’ve never experienced past Chapter 2. Though I loved it and recommend it to everyone, I never did finish the British version of the teen drama Skins . Battlestar Galactica , too—bailed on it in the middle, hoping to one day jump back in. Will I? Probably not.
Not sure what your blog’s main subject should be? Think about: Your hobbies, topics you like to talk about and debate with others, and subjects you love reading and researching. Boost Blog Traffic offers straightforward guidelines for how to tell if you’ve chosen the right blog topic or not. Among the recommendations, measure your interest and the topic’s viability by checking: how many books you own on the topic, if there’s already an audience for your topic, and whether you can come up with at least 52 different post ideas (one for every week of the year).
This post is so very helpful!!! I’m working with my 3 month old collie puppy and I just want him to be exceptional. It’s a joy to be around a well trained, confident dog. Even non dog people can appreciate a great dog. That being said it’s easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged with so many blogs, books, styles and puppyhood in general. I can really relate to you and your joy really comes through in your writing. The steps are easy to understand and I love how everything is explained so thoroughly not just the how to, but also the why. Thank you so much. My only suggestion and please take this a constructive is maybe a “Start here” button might be helpful. I followed a link from Pinterest and read every post until I got to this one last and felt like none of it was achievable until I read this post. This one needs to be the starting point. The foundation of all the other training.
