i don’t have epic content (but here’s a free download)

|

A few seasoned bloggers (such as LINKS TO JUSTIN, BENNY, CHRIS G, PETER CLEMENS) have given lots of tips on building a blog. I try to follow as much as possible. It seems that they all agree, that one of the most important criteria for a great blog is “epic content.”

I clicked back to my humble little blog. Hmmm….

My blog is not exactly easy to read. It’s not always happy and cheerful. The topic of depression is hardly what I call light hearted. Sadly, I cannot in all honesty, always be encouraging because I have such down days myself where I indulge in self-pity. Strangely, these are also the days I have more inspiration to write. However, I do not post half the bits I drafted, I think it might scare you if I told you how I visualized killing myself.

People seem to bounce around blogs looking for motivation and ways to better themselves. Others look for guidance and advice to a certain problem. I don’t seem to be providing either. I don’t write lists, I don’t write bullet points. I haven’t spent half the time I should on SEO and social media marketing. I don’t have stellar titles and keywords. I fall asleep reading Copyblogger and feel deflated recognizing everything I haven’t done to promote my blog. I don’t give advice as a medical expert, and I don’t really know how you can be more self-aware.

I just ramble about what I think, because I’m on a journey of finding some self-awareness myself, so not exactly a life coach who can share expert tips.

Some probably leave my blog feeling more depressed than when they first landed. Who wants to read about a sad, heavy subject?

Indeed, I never started out this blog with the thought, “I want to help someone,” which is how many blogs grew and became popular.

But I remain confident, albeit somewhat gingerly.

I write from my heart, and I think those who come here by chance will feel it.

Does heart count as epic content? I hope so. But if it doesn’t, whatever.

Be me.

Carve out niche with my blog – link to illuminated mind / chris on niche. i cannot always be positive and help you. because i’m still trying to help myself for my therapy

I dont hv epic content – i dont hv anything to give
Write unhappy stuff
Sad
Imm so tirrd n wish time wld stop so i can catchup with social media

But if i’ve learnt anything fr other blogs – hv faith. Its a doutig phase. Thid is what i love
I’m happy when i do
I do fr myself my therapy
And thr rest will follow

i’m not trying to make money off. i just want to inspire

if you are also building a blog. persevere

i don’t have epic content (and here’s a free download)

no need sign up – not ramping up email addresses, subscribers
decided not to let that benchmark the success of my blog
nor money
helping others is not quantifiable
not to pay services for twitter followers
if it’s good
people will follow
