A Very Bloggy May

1 May

I started this blog last fall with the intention of writing at least once a week about Web 2.0 and the way it was changing our lives; marketing from the perspective of a budding marketing professional; and my take on issues and news affecting the U.S. Latino community. Those issues have provided me with fodder for very interesting posts, but in the last few weeks the posts have been fewer and fewer. I still have the intention of writing once a week, but I wait for lightning to strike, and then writer’s block sets in. And worst of all, this makes blogging feel like a chore. Which I certainly don’t want it to become.

I like writing, and there are so many topics that interest me.  So I have come upon an interesting solution to revive the blog and get myself into the habit of regularly writing for this blog again.  A May resolution, if you will- one new blog post, every day during the month of May, on any topic of my choosing.  So yes, this will mean broadening the content to whatever may interest me on a given day- politics, both local and national, the economy, health, family, heck, even fashion (I’ve been known to put together a nice outfit from time to time).  I know that every social media expert says that the key to having a successful blog is to hone in one or two areas and sticking to them.  However, this month-long experiment in daily blogging, 30 posts in 30 days, is more about producing regular content- something else the social media experts will tell you is important to building a readership.

So join me on this month of daily writing on what will surely be a wide variety of topics.  Happy May Day!

    […] posts since 2012! I then told myself that I would do a month of a blog post a day, just as I did in May 2011, but then realized, why wait until September 1st? Why not […]
