The Power of A Personal Post

As blogger's we want to connect with our audience, mainly you, the reader. That could be through a multitude of ways such as collaborations with business's, other bloggers or sharing some fun giveaways. What I don't like to see on a blog, is only that. I want to get to know you as a reader, because yes, just because you're a blogger doesn't mean you don't read anyone else's blogs.

The power that a personal post has over your followers is essential. It's what keeps them around. It what shares your inner most self with them. As bloggers we put ourselves out there. We share great detail of an outfit, an amazing new recipe or this incredible new product that just came out. I want to read stories of what made me cry last week, of that new milestone your child just took or you're upcoming vacation that you can't stop raving about.

In a sense, I just want to get to know you. What makes you tick. For me, sharing a personal post does make me nervous but isn't that the great thing about social media. The connection we can make with just a few keystrokes, pictures and most importantly, our voice? I love those bloggers who share their deepest desires, their secrets and their habits. It what makes me love coming back to their blog day in and day out. It's the power they have of those personal stories.

It's scary, true to put yourself out there. But, the power you have is worth that risk. I promise, never stop sharing those personal posts friends. Even if you don't think you're reaching anyone, someone, someday will come across it and realize what an impact you're making on them. At least, that's all we can hope for right?

What makes you coming back to my blog?
Do you share personal posts on your social media accounts?

  1. I agree with all of this! I love reading posts about new products or getting outfit ideas but what really keeps me coming back and wanting to read more is the everyday ins and outs. How I can relate to someone just through a post and often times find reassurance that I'm not alone (mainly on this mommy journey). Thank you for sharing and for the great reminder :)

  2. Love this! Totally love when someone gets more personal where the reader can get to know the writer, but of course it's comfort level on how much you want to share. I'd like to think I'm not super transparent, but give peeks inside my everyday.

  3. I love reading personal posts from other bloggers! Gives blogs a sense of authenticity!

  4. Yes! I love reading personal posts-it gives me a better feel for who I'm following!

  5. I personally love reading personal posts. It shows me a blogger's personality and their writing skills, which I love seeing.

  6. I love personal posts. It's shows you the blogger isn't just about pushin a product or selling their business. I hate when a blog I once loved becomes more of a business than a personal blog.
