I started a blog to write my little heart out about all the topics I care about, but that turns about to be quiet a few. Not only have I read all the SEO guides I could find and am still none the wiser, but it seems that diversifying topics is the #1 mistake new bloggers make. Filmmaking, childhood trauma, drug addiction, poetry, youtube vlogs – they say I will never manage to build an audience this way.
At first I didn’t really care about gaining followers. Sure it feels nice, but I wasn’t after the numbers. But I definitely don’t want to confuse the people who are kind enough to follow me. Nor do I want to waste their time about topics they don’t care about. I feel blind sighted by all this blogging insight; after all, I’ve been writing for a while now, am I meant to delete all posts that are not about my number 1 topic? Are people meant to have a myriad of blogs for each subject they want to write about?
Honestly any kind of feedback is welcome. I’ve been really enjoying my time on here, but what I really want to do is help people get over their trauma alongside me. I want to start conversations about mental health, even if that means giving up this outlet I’ve grown to love for my poetry and movie discussion. Time for decisions now!
