Personal Blogging Determines Your Staying Power

From my very first blog on Blog Estates, I have used my skill of writing on how to position me on the Internet. And here I am today, with Blog #7 Frans Fractured Marketing.

Five of the blogs are company blogs you will see posted on the side. Check them out for your personal enjoyment.

In the Beginning
The aspect of personal blogging becomes ingrained over time, as you learn how to approach a topic, how to go from easy generalization to informed, focused argument for or against any topic of interest.

The biggest gain, benefit if you will, is the consistency of writing which develops your ability to argue in print. Is that a good thing? Arguing for the sake of arguing, no.

BUT arguing or presenting two sides of any hot topic is a skill only writing and taking the comments can create.

Learning the truth about your mettle

Those comments can sure be mean spirited in tone. When you hit the hot button of some readers, you are going to invite their hot retorts. Some do present a solid case for things you disagree with, those are the thinkers.

Then there are those whose mouth is run by emotions and their brains can still be found in the original packaging.

Who Do You Love
Somewhere on the journey, you learn who your readers really are. What makes them tick and how to write to encourage their support. It is the getting there that turns the average person right off about blogging.

It isn’t what to say or write about that bothers them the most, it is ” … what if people do not like what I write, what if they hate me?”

Negative Emotion vs. Opening their Minds

Some will, some won’t. However, if the haters continue to read and post reasonable comments for something you write, then it is easy enough to understand some people just react verbally before putting their brain in gear.

If you blog to become the Head of the Happy club then you will give it up. No one can please any of their readers all the time. In fact if you can reach and create dissent you are probably going to be a good writer. Why? Blogging is opinion and opinion creates opposites and opposites create the fodder for good communications and relationship building. The responders are the ones who care.

Evolution vs. Revolution

Believe it or not, you can be on opposite sides of any fence and still respect the opinions each of you hold. Revolution comes from evolution. Evolution provides growth to sustain direction. Your job is to provide that fodder and the revolution will be created by your readers. Make it a revolution of needed and positive change and you are a winner.

My Name is Fran ~ Editor of Frans Fractured Marketing

My Name is Fran …

I suppose the normal part of blogging is that you need to know who the devil I am. While some of you do know me, some have received training from me, and others I have met on social sites like Facebook .

First let me say, I have been online since 1992; less than one year after I suffered FOUR heart attacks that should have done me in. Stubborn, methinks, so I am still here.

It taught me two very important things … faith can move mountains; it can chase death from your door. And two, that by determination and patience, I have taught myself the skills and talents that you too will need in order to succeed online.

The mistake most people make is to say, “I want to make money. How much can I make if I join you?

What they should be determining is why do they need to make any money, and what do they need it for? Then, what are they willing to do to make it happen.

Joining me won’t directly make you a nickel. what it will do is you will now have a pro-active mentor who will help you save time, dollars and frustration by giving you the opportunity to follow in my steps, learning time savers proven by hundreds of successful marketers who came before you and I.

By emulating what I do, then we both become stronger. Increases in income potential grow as we build a team of new members ready to follow us.

It took me a while to realize the power of this statement. No one was sharing with anyone when I first started. It was a dog-eat-dog just do it scene.

When I think about how frustrated and angry I was back then, I am pretty sure that is what made me determined to help other new people – newbies, get the right start. Avoid the pitfalls and understand one very important thing about online success – we are ALL newbies today and we will continue to be newbies until we die.

Why? Because there will always be something NEW to learn and hopefully someone who cares enough to help us through it.

That is who I am. If you are ready to be challenged by me first, in testing your mettle, your desire to succeed, and your patience and determination in learning the skills you will need, then let’s get started.
