Making Things Personal
I will talk about several points in making blogs personal, and encouraging visitor interaction with my site.
- A comment is not a bunch of words in a little box. It is a direct connection to another person. Treat it as such. (Respect.)
- Expose yourself! Share your hopes dreams, wishes, values, etc. Be genuine.
- Reciprocate -- different types of responses and choosing what works best for you.
- Mascot Blogging -- creating an icon that personifies your business and/or your values.
About Charlene Amsden
Charlene Amsden is a 49 year-old school teacher temporarily working in a finance office as a data processor and file clerk. She began blogging in 2005 when a knee injury grounded her for 6 weeks. She was looking for a way to preserve her sanity and save her soul from the dark abyss of daytime TV. What she found was a community that spans oceans, continents and ages. She forged real and lasting friendships and met the man of her dreams while sitting behind her desk with her foot on a bookshelf and a bag of frozen peas on her knee.
