It’s Monday and Dr. Tanya is back with her weekly Blogging Insights prompt. She provides us with a quote about blogging or writing and asks us to express our opinion about said quote.
This week’s quote is from Kelly Thoreson, a self-proclaimed “Killer Content Queen” and creator of Blogfiti, a place for bloggers to learn to write unicorn content that ranks high on Google and moves their businesses forward. Here’s her quote:
“Here’s the only blogging tip you really need: always follow your intuition.”
Let’s see. The quote Tanya gave us last week told us that the only two attributes that make someone a good writer/blogger are talent and the ability to avoid being distracted by the internet, and 97% of that is the latter. This week’s quote is that the only thing a good blogger needs is to follow their intuition. Forget about talent or the ability to avoid being distracted by the internet. That’s so last week This week it’s only intuition!
Come on, Kelly. All you need is intuition? How about commutations skills? Or language skills? Or the ability to tell a story — one that is engaging, interesting, informative, and/or imaginative? Nah, those things are not necessary. All you need to do is follow your gut…and hope it doesn’t give your readers indigestion in their guts.
