I’ve been looking on the internet for tips and such for getting more viewers because, as you know, this blog struggles. I came across several “keys to starting a blog” posts and stuff like that.
Key things on the list are:
- Having a sensible topic
- Figuring out if there’s an audience for your topic
- Good writing skills
And there’s more I can’t think of right now. Heck, I wrote on those topics myself. All of those things are important. However, there’s one more thing:
Yes, the person behind the posts. That person is very important. And, the only way to have any chance of being successful in at least the blogging world is to have a passion for what you write about.
My new blog, Dante’s Funny World, as I expected, is performing very well for its first three days. It’s hitting milestones that DALANEL just hit this year. Yeah. However, with DALANEL making some changes, I’m hoping that it can keep up. But, head on over there if you want to laugh. I won’t be mentioning that blog all that often though. Anyway, it’s time for some good news. Are ya ready? Let’s dive in!
In many cases, that’s true.
Not everybody can be leaders. Some people don’t have it, others have it.
Then, there’s me.
I have what it takes to be a decent leader. I’ve led several groups at various levels. And so, I say this with that experience in mind: I’m not meant to be a leader. I usually step in when there’s a need; when there’s no other option. But if you want it; take it. I’m good.
I thrive as a role player.
I’ve always loved being the guy that supports the team’s ultimate goal while hiding when it comes time to present the awards. I’ve always been able to contribute. I love doing it. Give me a task and I’ll do it. I’m gifted in many areas and I can figure out the other stuff.
Like in the Boy Scouts. We had our patrol leader (not a troop leader; a patrol leader was one of us, voted into that position). In time, the only real candidate in my patrol for the next election was me. So, I was automatically put into the role. I didn’t want it; didn’t need it. But, I took the role because it was a hole that needed to be filled and I know I could do a decent job.
Or like at The Sixer Sense. When Sean stepped down, he recommended me to take the lead. Part of it was that he (and I) didn’t want to see the site go on without a leader. So, I figured I’d hold the fort down until somebody better qualified could step in. Another reason why he thought of me as because I always posted consistently. And a site needs consistent and constant content to survive. That didn’t mean I was able to manage a staff. Didn’t mean I had what it took to get people buzzing about the blog.
And now, the lighting for the cantata. I’m just in the role until I can find somebody better. I know who I am and what I am capable of. I understand my gifts. I am not a leader and that’s fine. Everybody can’t lead because then what are we leading?
I give 100%.
