As a blogger, do you consider yourself an expert resource in anything? If you blog and expect others to take your writings and postings seriously, then you are indeed an expert in something.
Establishing yourself (and your blog) as a go-to resource for something gives your blog credibility, your traffic increases, and suddenly you’re en expert in one or more areas. Hello media calling, is this ____ (insert your name here). Yet I am perplexed…
Perhaps some do not consider themselves an expert in something, but if you blog, then you either:
A) Are an expert and just don’t recognize it
B) You are an expert and feel uncomfortable saying it
So I thought I’d rephrase the question and get the blog sharing going:
- What is your blog’s URL?
- Do you consider yourself an expert in something that you blog about? If so, what?
Indeed I am about to have a Lena West moment here: we need to own who we are and project it for others to recognize it in us.
Maybe you aren’t blogging about what you feel expert in, and that’s fine, too. But we’re all really good at something and for many of us, our talents and skills manifest in the form of a blog post. So what’s your specialty?
