Blogging: Writing Personal Blogs

This blog has grown over time.  We started out as Cook.Travel.Eat. We talked about those three things but we realized we wanted to expand our focus.  This has led to blogs about comic cons, comics, and Star Wars. We do a lot of news articles now and it has opened doors for us that we would never have dreamed of.  It has put in touch with amazing people and has even allowed us to do interviews with people we admire. Our website has grown from a personal blog to one where write with a certain demographic in mind.

However, we are going to keep the personal side alive and well.  If you read daily, you notice that Friday blogs have been more about getting healthy.  I do want to keep those blogs going.  I also want to write more blogs about cooking, traveling, and eating. We still have tons of places to talk about and pictures to share.

What I’m trying to say is that I don’t want the story of us to go away.  While we are concentrating on the new stuff, I want Friday’s to about who the Nola Nerd Couple actually are.  The stuff we like doing, the places we like going to, and the people we meet on the way. Pretty much anything is on the table for our Friday blogs.

In truth, these are the harder posts to write.  The news stories and book and music reviews are easy for us. It’s taking information and explaining it to others.  Personal stories are much harder to make interesting. The best personal stories are those that take intimate details and make them have universal meanings. If personal blogs don’t do that, then they are just a catalog of the day or event. In other words, I’m actually scared to write these…at least to level that I want them.

I do want to thank all of you that read this blog, sporadically or faithfully.  We average a good number of views a day, and we really are grateful for those that stick around and read all of our posts.  We know it’s not always everyone’s cup of tea.  Nothing makes me happier than when someone tells me they read the blog even though they don’t know what we are talking about half the time. That means they may have not connected with the subject matter, but they have connected with us.

That right makes this worth it.

Now, I have to figure out what to write for next Friday.
