What makes a good blog? Content alone, humor, intelligent discussion, pictures or just "conversation" with people with similar interests, all of the above? So how do I promote my thoughts and ideas, and gain an audience. I am new here, and just feeling my way through.
I follow several money-saving coupon blogs, which are great, but I don't want to be a copy-cat of anyone else's efforts. I just post my finds, successes and disappointments. I like good food and wine, so occasionally, I'll post a recipe or talk about a winery visit.
Other interests include environment, such as recycling, and charitable causes, such as the Food Bank and abused women's shelters. I have posted briefly on these topics, but there is so much more to these services than just putting your recycles out every week, and dropping a box of cereal into the collection boxes.
I'd thought to be (or become) a source of area information on events such as wine and food festivals, family fun, outdoor events, local concerts, etc.
Is this too broad? If so, how do I go about narrowing it down, and still having interesting, readable content? Where do I go from here? I need to find my niche...
