How To Write A Mediocre Blog

A simple Google search on how to write a great blog will throw up thousands of different links.

You'll find out how to gain more followers/readers. How to gain more commenters.

You'll find how to cater to your targeted audience. How to pick a specific topic. How to generate a lot of traffic and even how to make money off your blog.

Today I thought I'd share how to write a mediocre blog.

One that doesn't necessarily cater to your audience with a specific topic but more or less whatever crosses your path.

One that averages decent enough traffic with about 10 views per post, with a scattering of comments here and there.

One that makes NO money off random topics and sporadic posts.

That's the key here; blog what you want, when you want. That way, your readers/followers never know when you'll publish something new.

Some may be curious when you finally hit publish that they're drawn to your blog OR they may just give up all together and never even take a glance at it again.

You also need to make sure you never share your posts on social media. You don't want anyone running across your link and reading it and <gasp> , maybe even enjoy it.

You also just want to lurk on the blogs you follow. Don't bother commenting b/c that could then cause that blog owner or their followers to go to your blog to start following and commenting.

Don't even think about blogging about the same ole boring thing over and over either. Don't bother with picking just one topic that might interest people i.e. horses/horse riding/horse training etc. (I use that as an example b/c that's the majority of blogs in my feed LOL).

Jump all over the spectrum with funny posts and sad posts. Posts about flowers and/or trees. Posts about trips you've taken, or things your kids do. Posts about animals or posts nowhere remotely related to animals or get the picture here....all over the place.

And then of course, write sporadically. Publish a new post every. single. day for a week or two but then drop down to one or two random posts a week or every other week. Keep your limited audience waiting with bated breath for a catchy, thought provoking or inspiring post and then bash their dreams by telling a story they can't relate to.

Or just take the easy way and do only Wordless Wednesday posts b/c they don't take much effort.....afterall, you don't even have to type anything witty, it's called "wordless" for a reason! ☺

And that's it!

If you follow these simple things, you too, will have a mediocre blog to be proud of. LOL

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…
