Blogging is a journey that many people have been doing for well over a decade now. It’s done by men and women and even young people on a regular basis. There are blogs on all sorts of topics – pets, relationships, diets, and life in general.
Sometimes you may start out blogging about a topic of interest to you, but eventually find yourself on a journey of self discovery. If this happens, don’t shun it for the sake of your traditional blog content.
Instead, go with it and see how your blog evolves into something more meaningful. Blogging can be very therapeutic to individuals who pursue self help and personal development.
It’s a fantastic way to share your thoughts, analyze your efforts and achieve your life goals. You may have been blogging on a superficial, surface level. For example, maybe you wanted to lose weight, so you started a blog.
For months (or even years), you might blog about the challenges you face with counting calories, getting enough exercise, and seeing the scale move up and down. And it resonates with your audience because they’re going through the same thing.
But it’s still surface level. Your blog can be so much more. Instead of just discussing the results aspect of your efforts, dig deeper and use your blog to get to the core of the issues.
This is where the real work is done and true growth takes place. Discover where and when your eating issues began developing and really think (and blog) about the impact it had on your life as a whole.
For example, you might discuss how you always saw your mother dieting, or how your father used to poke fun at you for being pudgy. Maybe you endured taunting at school and you ate for comfort at the end of the day.
It’s okay – and even beneficial – for you to take your blog in a different direction, either permanently or from time to time. If you need to veer off track and address deeper issues, do it.
Don’t be stifled by a specific topic you assume everyone wants to know about. If you’re helping yourself figure things out, chances are, you’re going to help others shine a light on their own core concerns. If you pigeon-hole yourself too tightly, you won’t see the change you’ve been hoping for.
