BLOGGING PROPERLY

I wish I knew how to blog properly. I am talking about making money with it, obviously. As far as I can tell, there are two major kinds of blogs: the How To blogs and the Look At Me blogs. Both can promote services. Internet gurus say money is on the first kind of blogs, unless you’re some kind of celebrity or influencer.

When I say blogging it includes any kind of social media posting, like Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and what not. It is very difficult to me to achieve any sort of success in this virtual universe because I don’t like it enough. If the door to affordably promote my services and my art was another, I would probably eliminate all my Internet profiles and stay away from the computer.

Most of How To blogs are very specific or rather redundant and deceiving. Pretending to be an expert is highly recommended in the blogging sphere. The Internet becomes a giant sales channel. That’s the main purpose of it as a business. The Look At Me blogs of influencers are the new generation of commercials.

People like me, who strive to make a living with their art and have creative projects of plain and simple aesthetic value, try hard to survive in the dog world of commerce. I avoided it for twenty years, having a daytime job that ruined my mental health. Now I’m trying to learn how to play the game without getting my soul dirty. I hope my mind doesn’t collapse.

My blog and site is growing, but it’s not exactly a success. I wonder if I’m not just wasting time and energy with this and social media. I might give up of posting daily. I really don’t know.

Blogging: I finally see the light!

My aim with blogging is to earn money doing what I love – writing, drawing and music composition. Though I make commissions for illustrations, I am, most of all, an author and I have the wild fantasy of finding an audience vast enough for cashing in. Yesterday I saw the light!

A BLOG PLATFORM IS THE SAME OF A DAMN SOCIAL NETWORK!

I am so dumb! Everyone knows that except this dimwit. No wonder my traffic is nil. I just posted, daily, made the all SEO stuff with the tags and what not, shared the content everywhere, appreciated the posts of some bloggers here and there, and that was it. ONLY NOW I realize blog platforms are bubbles like all other platforms on the Internet. The content is shared almost exclusively among its members. The audience is to be found inside the bubble and it only gets existence through VIRTUAL SOCIAL INTERACTION. It’s a completely different approach from what happens in the REAL WORLD, where advertising repeatedly from the distance on as many places as possible is the main method.

I’m not good at social interaction and I have the chills when doing so for commercial purposes. I am not a salesman.

Once more I’m trying to monetize this site through ads and traffic. So I’ll do my best in this virtual social interaction thing. Perhaps I’ll virtually meet some virtually interesting people who might share my stuff among their virtual and real friends, giving birth to what the Internet calls a COMMUNITY, in spite of being absolutely virtual to me. Hey! I actually had a girlfriend whom I met through HI Five! What the hell am I complaining about?
