When is Content Not Content?

We’re constantly reminded that “Content is King.” But what is content?

Is what I’m writing now content? It might be to some  and not to others.

Some people will think,”what is this crap?  I know all about this and a lot more than this guy.”

Others will say, “Gee, I never thought of that.  I thought that content is content is content.”

So, content is like beauty.  It’s in the eye of the beholder.

When you decide to write some content as I hope I’m doing now it’s important to recognize that there is no one size fits all in content no more than there is in many things.

So, don’t think that everyone will love the gems of wisdom you cast upon the waters of the internet.  If you’re iucky you may get some comments indicating that you said something that someone thought useful or useless.  Getting both kind of comments is good.  It means that you have hit on a hot spot.

You also won’t become a hit over night.  The blogoshere is no different than any regular social gathering.  When you first go, you known nobody and nobody knows you or seems to want to know you.  You’ve got to keep showing up and taking part.  As people get to know you they will start to trust you and want to know you.

I’m a classic example of this.  I have entered into the blogosphere tentatively and not regularly.  So no one knows me or maybe even cares.  I’m not blogging often enough and maybe not talking about things people care about. But I intend to keep on until I start to get some comments.

Until next time.
