It’s always good to hear positive things said about oneself and what one is doing. Maybe not technically exactly my first review, but Sean Munger has certainly been able to describe me very well from an outside perspective.
Here’s what Sean wrote :
Most Fun Blog: Don Charisma
Don Charisma is another blog that I don’t remember how or why I followed, but which has been a source of more than a few grins and laughs over the past few months. This is a very eclectic, mostly light-hearted blog without a real unifying theme, although Don does post a lot of travel photos. The articles, when not presenting interesting pics of far-flung locales, range the gamut from an amusing indictment of Windows 8 to a lesson in “troll potency.” I was entertained recently by Don’s exchange with a blog reader unhappy at what he perceived was a surfeit of “Buddahs,” which most of the other readers who chimed in (including me) seemed to like. Oh well, no accounting for taste! Anyway, this is a very fun blog and one I look forward to reading each time I click on my WordPress reader.
Very well and eloquently put Sean, thank you, you are welcome on my blog any time. Congratulations on your awards. I hope that we will stay in touch in 2014 🙂
So what is Don Charisma’s blog about ?
My blog is and always will be largely about positivity and charisma. It’s my personal and professional blog, and my preference is to lead by example. Sometimes I do teach, and I am happy always to answer specific questions.
Travel blog, I am not. Geek blog I am not. Photography blog I am not. Poetry or writing blog I am not. Ad infinitum.
Reason – I reckon readers are more interested in what Google would call “thin content”, that is eclectic blogs rather than a blog specifically about SEO, Photography, Geek stuff etc. It’s the broadness that makes for a good blog, in my opinion obviously. Also it means I never get bored.
A Miley Cyrus blog I would be bored before I even started. An SEO blog I’d get bored probably a few weeks. A poetry blog my readers would get bored after a couple of posts, because I’m not a poet, well not at the moment anyway. A glamorous women blog, well probably never get bored with that one 🙂 … maybe I’ll do that one next year, Don Charisma for the next Hugh Hefner!
Bottom line is it’s also the man that makes the blog, not what he puts on it, within reason of course. Same for all the blogs I like, I like the bloggers, not that we always have specific blog topics that we’re compatible on, but they are good people that I like. Out of the thousands of people who I know here on WordPress, there is every kind of blog under the sun, and, for me, shared interests are a bonus not a necessity.
Friendship and solidarity, not fighting and pettiness, one is for big people, the other is for tiny people.
For those that “don’t get me” – oh well, never mind, go and find some blogs you do like, WordPress has some 65000000 or more 🙂
Happy New Year
