Must a personal blog be limited to a single topic to be taken seriously?
If another influence-related indicator (e.g., a Klout score) is positive, does that “make up for” scant comments on someone’s personal blog?
Here’s the thing.
I enjoy blogging, and I have been happy with lierrepoet’s format. I also haven’t minded the lack of feedback recorded here because I’ve received positive comments about my posts in person or via email; I know I’ve reached people.
You know a but is coming, right?
But I think blogging for professional purposes is a good skill to have, and I don’t have an opportunity to develop that skill where I work (I am allowed to write video, audio, print and web copy, but blogging and social copy for clients now belongs to only a single department at the agency. I am not making a judgment about that. It’s just how we’re structured.)
All that to say that my personal blog may be the only outlet I have for developing professional blogging abilities, so I’m wondering how (or if) I should alter my blog.
I’m just not sure what’s best for me to do in this case.
