Blogging Insights — The Equation

For her weekly Blogging Insights prompts, Dr. Tanya provides us with a quote about blogging or writing and asks us to express our opinion about said quote.

This week’s quote seems to be a meme.

I agree with Tanya when she wrote, “If you were to turn the definition of blogging into a mathematical expression, it would probably look like the above quote.” Blogging is all of those things: sharing, connecting, creating, and inspiring.

That said, I’d change the order of the items listed in the quote. The first component of blogging is to create content. Next is to share what you’ve created with other bloggers in order to connect with them, which may inspire them to like the content you’ve created, to potentially comment on what you’ve posted, and perhaps even for them to create their own content in response.

So my equation would be:

To blog = To create + To share + To connect + To inspire

    Creation is everything imo, which is why I avoid blogs that simply repost other content

    Yes, you’re very right. It started with creating content.

    Which is a circular equation for you inspire a reader and then they create. It’s a bit like the song that never ends 🙂
