Blog Post #7 – Blogging

2105

I make a long-range plan for three blogs a week at SimpleLivingWorks.org, trying to combine 1) personal stories with 2) promotions of free online Alternatives resources that are largely seasonal and oriented to the church year (Advent/Christmas, Lent/Easter, etc.). Most of the blogs focus directly or indirectly on the very complementary Alternatives’ mission and the Five Life Standards of Living More with Less.

I’m more spontaneous for my once-a-week at Jubilee-Economics.org, usually focusing on other helpful podcasts, since my colleague blogger focuses more on books, including his own. I’m more audio oriented, he’s more text-oriented. I think it makes a good combination.

My blogs also support my podcasts, at least one blog for each SLW! Podcast, one or two for each TheCommonGoodPodcast.com.

Unless you just want to talk to yourself and a few friends, spend half your time developing an audience. See Posts 1, 3 & 6.

There are few rules to blogging so don’t worry about doing it right. A common tip: keep it short.

I tend to repeat basic information from one to the next, such as how to subscribe to my podcast. I put new info at the top, then the repeats.
