Anything that is currently affecting the fitness business industry, including controversial topics that no one wants to talk about, new business ideas or promotions, thought provoking posts that are out-of-the-box and gets brainstorming and conversation flowing!
Even though I did not list anything specific, I hope this helps Ron!
the answers will probably be as different as the people giving them. I do not read blogs (if I do at all) for information but for the writers response to it.
I am writing a blog about twice a month, and in it I endeavor to give my opinion on subjects. The subjects are usually fitness related but I have also veered into observations of everyday life and even politics. I want to give the reader (if such person actually exists) a more comprehensive view of me as a person. A person looking at my profile and contemplating contacting me will have a good picture of myself which enables him or her to assess compatibility.
I do not write for information as the main object. There are better web sites on any subject that I can think of. But I may write about anecdotal observations as they relate to specific situations. As am example, I have observed in one client with MS good responses to a certain approach and wrote that much in a blog.
By the same token, I am quite aware that such public exposure can have its risk, and I keep that in mind when I write because it is equally possible to make a public fool of oneself.
I’m with Lawrence 110%. What a great response to Ron’s question! I love blogs that create a fun, respectable place where its readers can interact and share their thoughts.
Ron, if you don’t mind me asking, have you determined who your blog’s target audience will be?
Here are five additional traits I look for when determining if I want to follow a new blog or not:
1) The blogger adheres to the “20:1 Rule.” This basically means the blog provides 20 things of value to its audience before requesting a favor or promoting a product to them.
2) The blogger actively seeks to engage their audience and make them feel like a part of the blog’s community.
3) Within an actual post the blogger has hyperlinked related sites/blogs/articles/etc. that supplement the post’s subject with other points of view. These links help connect me to other blogs I might find useful or at least interesting.
4) The blogger responds to comments left by their audience with more than just “Thanks” when appropriate.
5) It’s made clear to the audience as to what they can expect from the blog with respect to the topics it will cover and how often new posts will be available.
I hope the five traits I’ve listed are helpful. Best of luck!
People tend to blog about things they have interest in.
Your question really indicates what the content of the blog will be if it is informative.
I would be sure that your blog highlights “information” your audience is seeking information about.
If it is a persuasive blog on the other hand, the content should incite them to change how they think about a particular topic.
I hope this gives you some direction.
