Blogging about personal experiences

It seems that nowadays people love to read about other people's personal experiences whether they be good or bad or even their personal lives. I guess it's just something that interests people nowadays. I myself used to blog about my personal life, about what had gone on in my day or what I had experienced during that day and I found that it gain a lot of interest from people who enjoyed coming to my blog and reading about my day or about what I had learned that was new.

What are your thoughts on blogs where people write about their personal lives? Is this something you would consider writing about in a blog or would you rather avoid talking about your personal life in a blog?

I think they are cool! Very cool, since most blogs only blog about products and why they are so great yadda yadda yadda! But personal blogs are, "real". Since they are based on a persons real life and real thoughts, real feelings and reflections in their personal life. And for the most part, this makes reading personal blogs much much more entertaining than reading about some x product and why it removes hairs from your skin or whatever it is!

I've thought about launching this type of blog before. It would be more of a foodie based blog though where I would blog about the different food I've eaten that day, what I had for breakfast, lunch and dinner and supper etc. What I had and where I got it from and how I made it and cooked it and what sauces I had it with etc etc.

But as much as I love my food, my diet sometimes consists of things that are far to mundane and mediocre to blog about IMHO lol. Like sometimes I'll have chips from the chip shop and there's only so much you can say and only so much appealing about a battered sausage and fried chips right? lol

But I guess I could keep it for all those times that I do prepare and cook something from fresh. I guess it would then be a personal / foodie blog. And those kinds of blogs can do quite well since people always need to eat to live and eating food is such an enjoyable thing to do.

And I've had a couple foodie blogs in the past but I ended up flipping them. And it's something I'm fairly passionate about so it might well be something I'll reconsider doing again in the future for sure. Blogging about personal experiences

Would love to hear other peoples opinions and thoughts too though!

Mike.

Blogging about personal experiences

Most general blogs are long dead. Sure there are a few old bloggers around that are still relevant and have a community around them. But overall most blogs have niched into specialized fields.
Nobody wants to read someone that writings about "nothing", you need to have a theme, a niche. Otherwise, you are just rambling.

Yeah, a lot of bloggers/blogs I read today are just pure rambling! Even those niche theme blogs do it as well though. I don't mind that so much if it's rambling on about something that is insightful, informative to me. But it's when people/blogs ramble just for the sake of being able to add more words to their blog post is what annoys me. Just say what you got to say, be clear when you say it and in as few words as possible. Unless you're going into detail about something otherwise, don't ramble! lol Blogging about personal experiences

I don't really have an eventful life I wish I did because I will love to have a blog that's about me but unfortunately I can't. But I prefer to blog more about what my readers can connect with and not try to be selfish but talking about myself alone.So I would rather stick to a blog with many features than just me writing about .myself.

The problem is, people are starting to lack the quality of writing articles for their blogs that provide useful and intriguing information.

In my opinion, I find personal experiences the easiest to blog about. Whether it's elaborating on content already made for someone else's blog, or writing my own original piece. Nothing is easier than drawing from personal experiences. Normally, I choose a topic, then research on that specific topic for more background information before beginning my writings. To have the ability to write from personal experience as a starting point basically, gives me background information without the extra step of research (though nothing's wrong with a little additional information).

I also think people can relate to personal experience blog articles, better than someone talking about how something should be done without any personal experience or nohow. Or at least that's how I feel when reading through blog posts.

Lot of bloggers got successful because they were blogging about their personal experience. So it all comes down into the journey. If you have control over your finances then surely you can make some good money off the blogging. I have worked with the bloggers in many contexts. I can tell you that their honesty of changing the financial background surely helps. Personal experience are very much helpful for others to learn in their own context. So I think blogs are good for these reasons.

My blog is a personal finance blog so there may be posts that will have to relate to my personal experiences. However, I don't really want to focus on my personal life because there's nothing exciting about it. People follow personal blogs for different reasons but mostly because the blog provides the content they're looking for. If I want to start investing in stocks, I'll probably read blogs of people who have been investing in stocks for a while and are sharing tips and useful information about it. I don't think I'll read blogs that simply share how the blogger spends every hour of his/her day.

My friend was actually sharing about her life and travel experiences on her blog. However, she was unable to attract that much readers. She even tried to advertise on social medias which didn't really work. She has now decided to write about other topics. I think blogging about personal experiences may work for some.

Based on my experience of writing on the internet for 10 years, I can say blogging about personal experience really counts. Blogging about personal experience does not mean you write about what you had for breakfast, or where you took your dog for a walk. Blogging about personal experience means writing on the topics that people can really relate. For instance, couple of years ago, a great earthquake occured in my home country. I wrote about my family trapped in the earthquake zone and how I was able to move them from the earthquake zone. It was really liked by my readers. I also wrote about my father's heart attack and how I was able to save my father. These are the things that people can relate.

Writing a blog about yourself is very appealing to readers. People love to read about experiences that they can relate to. They love learning from the experience of others. Just make sure that the things you write about yourself are not about rants or drama. This is a turn off to readers. Life is already stressful for most people and they don't want to read depressing stories. Most readers appreciate stories that teach them a lesson or give them an inspiration. People love reading about how you were able to overcome challenges which they might be going through at the moment. It's informative to them. They also love reading about things that make your life happy. They might want to adopt those things to their lifestyle as well.

We travel abroad frequent like 3 times a year at the minimum. This year we have travels to 7 countries. My husband said that if he has the time, it would be great to put up a travel blog that will mainly depend on our travels. Writing from experience is one of the easiest to do since the information is already n your head. Add to that the pictures and videos that we took in those travels, I guess blogging of our travel experience would be easy to do.
