A piddly 9 posts in the past 4 years, and this blog continues to occupy my thoughts…daily.
And what are the 7 reasons for that?
- Wordful.com started over six years ago and I still believe in its potential
- It’s got a cool, catchy domain name
- There used to be a small but loyal audience here…
- …and it even caught the attention of a few prominent bloggers back in the day
- Very recent redesign and it’s the best one yet
- It helped me land a job at a Silicon Valley startup
- I love blogging
Here’s the problem
Don’t know what to write about anymore. I get a lot of ideas — like critiques of great content-rich sites, or why I love email marketing, or a chronicle of my marketing projects — but they never seem to stick or belong here. Feels off.
Don’t know who to write for. Maybe if I knew who to write for, I’d know what to write about. Content marketers? Meh — is there even such a thing? Other bloggers? Yes, but what kind of bloggers? Entrepreneurs? What do they need?
Unsure of the market. As an entrepreneur, I can’t just write a blog for the sake of enjoying it — there needs to be a viable market on the receiving end. The problem is I can’t think of monetizing Wordful because of the first two reasons.
For Wordful to succeed, all three of conditions must exist: subject, audience and market potential.
In essence, Wordful.com is diagnosed with an identity crisis. And I’m reaching out to whoever is reading this to help me out, please.
How can I help you?
In the past, this blog could be best summed up as a resource about becoming a better writer and editor and blogger. While I still believe in those things, I’m not quite sure it’s a complete picture of what Wordful is capable of.
So I ask you:
- What do you need in a blog about writing and editing and blogging that would really you in your life and your business?
- What’s missing from your entrepreneurial arsenal?
- Do you want to be educated or entertained?
Please leave a comment and share your thoughts, I’m TOTALLY LISTENING.
