3 Powerful Concepts To Grab The Edge On Your Blog

Simple, yet direct, a question arises: Why do I grab the edge to motivate my blog regularly?

Good question, grasshopper.

Actually, there are several reasons uncovered around why I decided to dive in and be a blogger. In particular, it is the ability to be unique, to be fresh and enjoyable and, most importantly, to be courageous.

Let’s look a little bit closer to why do I succeed my blog and hence, how you can assert from my experience so far.

To Be Unique

To be completely honest, I really didn’t want to do this blog at all, especially at the beginning. I was scared, nervous, and afraid to imagine starting my site.

However (and I don’t want to be over-the-top,) I explored change and viewpoints to a frame of reference on the issues of:

  • leadership
  • productivity
  • salesmanship
  • adaptability
  • humor

in my own voice and thoughts.

Why do I say that?

I guess in a word: perspective.

Thus, if I can captivate and inform my posts with relevant observations and one-of-a-kind aspects, the curb appeal was so alluring that I had to start writing; now!

To Be Enjoyable

I will tell you a little secret; my blog is a thrill! It is amazing that the meaning of what the words said is so powerful. In other words, the concepts about what I want to discuss and participate with all of you (yes, you devil you,) are very slick indeed. Not only can I publish my articles (which, in and of itself, is both heroic and frightening,) but it even gets better.

That’s because, in a flash, I can evaluate regarding what is trending and interesting to my readers.


If one person really relishes my particular post, bam, terrific!

If one didn’t like it, why? Really!

Still, most importantly, I enjoy the dialogue of sharing back-and-forth continuously. In that way, we are now building relationships of goodwill and interaction as a result of my blog.


To Be Courageous

Several years ago, I was intrigued from all of the nuances of social media and especially, the eloquence of Twitter. Reading more about the enticing areas, I went to the bookstore and bought an awesome book called “Tao of Twitter” by Mark Schaefer. The book deals with the “majestic random synergy” of 280 characters and the interconnections that come with it.

Truly fascinating.

Going forward, I subscribed to Mark’s blog, {grow}, which I read religiously. One of the posts that Mark wrote inspired me to no end. The article was titled “Courage and Blogging” and he suggested that:

“Maybe the ‘special something’ of blogging is ‘courage.’ As I think about it, I would definitely point to ‘courage’ as an attribute of some of my favorite bloggers.

If you didn’t have to worry about ‘being liked,’ but focused on ‘being fair,’ how would that affect your approach to creating content?”

Noodling that for a couple of seconds, I asked myself, “Am I courageous?”

And the answer was, “Well, yeah, I am.”

In fact, to be focused on what I was trying to do. To accomplish and be unafraid. And, certainly, to embrace it and grab the edge.

And, most of all, (here’s a shocker,) to make mistakes is, to be honest, alright.

Yes, that’s the human side of my blog and it’s part of me.

Grab The Edge To Motivate My Blog

In a nutshell,  that is why I am now a blogger because I am flowing and the ideas are always thinking.

I juice are on high alert.


So, I asked you, what is (or going to be) your inspiration for writing your blog?
