The Power the Blog…

Does blogging equal POWER???  I mean, unless you’re Donald Trump, does saying something actually turn heads?  I was in this discussion this morning with a few fellow booksellers and I found myself trying to convince them that they have to do a blog.  It isn’t a question, you just have to!  After a bit of reflection, I wonder if I am just crazy…  I blog because I want to.  I blog because it brings me pleasure.  I blog because I write.  Not a good writer, but a writer.  Does it really matter though???

It is my understanding from seeing my stats that like four people care what I write about.  CORRECTION – one of those people is my mom, so she gets disqualified (sorry mom).  She would put that little Facebook LIKE next to a stick figure if I drew one out here.  Other than my mom and maybe three other folks, I am just shouting to the wind.  The problem is that we ALL shout to the wind in some form or fashion.  We are obsessed with seeing and hearing ourselves.  Maybe I shouldn’t be supportive of a blog for folks who genuinely won’t get any pleasure out of writing it.  Maybe it doesn’t really help tell the world who we are and what we are about?  Maybe it isn’t just free advertising and a fun and easy way to share more than just what I am selling with the world.

WAIT A MINUTE…  THOSE ARE GOOD REASONS!  BLOG – IN THE IMMORTAL WORDS OF NIKE, JUST DO IT!
