Seven Deadly Sins

When combing through the many resources found in our NMDL Resource Guide, I knew that I was going to be most interested in learning how to blog effectively. Obviously I think I am very interesting, but how do I market myself (or even a client) to the masses in an exciting way?

Sonia Simone’s list of “The 7 Deadly Sins of Blogging” (pg.70) was a great way to begin my journey as a blogger. Including things such as Selfishness and Lameness are things that I not only want to avoid, but I wish that others would avoid as well.

I do not think that I have quite found my place online as far as blogging goes, but Simone encourages being inspired by others and creating your own place, which is what I plan to work on in the next few weeks. Because let’s face it- no one wants to read a blog that includes me rambling about what I had for breakfast this morning. (A spinach and pastrami omelette: it was ridiculously delicious)

So, where do I take this blog train of mine? As a student/barista, I feel that I do not come off as a completely unique individual. I can easily name twenty other people that have a very similar weekly agenda. Yet, maybe that is what will make me relatable. I will cross my fingers and work for the best rather than hoping for it. Stay tuned for what I have eaten for breakfast next time- but let us hope that I have some better material coming our way.

    Usually it’s caused by the passion displayed in the article I browsed. And on this article Seven Deadly Sins | Trends Rule. I was excited enough to post a comment :) I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or does it appear like some of the responses look like they are left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing on other online sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you list the complete urls of all your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
