Improving Blogging Experience with Tools & Participation by Claudia Lim I’ve a blog so now what?

I don’t just have a blog

I have two…

Three…

Four…

Claudia Five…

And more… Unknown to many AKA the anonymous blogs

Blogging Tools

What Tools?

with little words

Random thoughts

Loads of crap

There’s Tumblr.com

Claudia And Posterous.com

And many many others…

Claudia Ermm… So many options!

I’ve my blog setup

What’s next?

Pimp it! Deep down you know you’re an attention whore too! Stop living in denial!

In Singapore

Communities

Aggregators

 

 

 

 

Other tools

Channels

To Pimp Your Blog

Claudia Feed to Twitter

Claudia Feed to facebook Import blog as notes

Whore it further on Plurk

Strangely

 

But…

Still NO one reads my blog!

Tools

Are just tools

You got to participate

People

Communities

Notice you

Every community has its niche content area or area of interests

Be active in those which meet your interests and needs

 

To Participate

= time + effort

And usually time and effort does not equate to the returns

Personally

After 4 years of active blogging

And lots of support

 

Commitments Determination Dedications

And a little luck

Featured on Straits Time as Gen Y Twice

You might think the return will than become a bigger pie

But you’re wrong…

Unless you are

 

Where participation may not be important anymore

But!

Do you really want to be her?

I don’t

Credibility Vs Popularity

I choose Creditability

What about you?

If you’re starting a blog now

Think about what’s passionate to you

Don’t do it for money

Blog because you’re passionate about it

To share your stories

To spread your passion
