Tech Blogs

I get emailed every minute of the day. Many of the ones I get now are junk emails. I love when all of you send in good questions, though. Vito sent in a question, asking me if “Tech Blogs” are overdone, or not. Have they become too common?

Given that the internet is technical in nature, and blogs (the setup and management) are technical in nature… it stands to reason that many bloggers are Techies who blog about technical matters. Wow… that’s a mouthful. But yes, it’s a pretty crowded market.

You have to make a unique voice. That is a given. Your point needs to be fresh and new. Even if others don’t agree with you… you need to blog what you know. Be passionate about what you’re writing. KNOW your material. It’s all about doing something different, and being yourself. 

I have one word for you if you want to get traffic to your blog: Network. Where are you online? Become active on Social Networking sites, such as Twitter and MySpace. Whose blogs are you reading and commenting on? None? Shame on you! How do you think others will find you? You will have to reach out to others, to bring them to you. More important than the content on your blog is you interaction within the community.
