Jan 23 Posted 5 years ago Yes K.C., you get it! Every blog, no matter the subject, can benefit from a personal twist. It's much more fun to read about people's real world experiences, as opposed to textbook rhetoric. Thanks for your comments!

Nice post! I am currently trying to develop my own blog strategy after switching gears and starting a blog for my blog design business.
The best advice I've gotten so far about blogging is to simply tell your story. Try to interweave a personal dimension to whatever it is you're writing about. This gives your readers a glimpse of the real you and builds loyalty.
If you sell something, don't just talk about how you just added it to your inventory...try to tell a story about why you carry that item for sale in the first place. This works especially well if you're into crafts, diy projects, design, etc., but I'm sure even the 'stuffiest' of blog topics could include a personal twist.
Related to this bit of advice is a strategy you mentioned within your post - encourage clients to leave comments and feedback. What a great win-win strategy! You can share with your blog readers something you're working on, for example, and then ask how they go about doing the same thing, or what they think of your progress so far.
I like the strategy of engaging readers because having a blog doesn't always have to be a one-sided conversation. :)
