Blog Exercises: April Current Events

Blog Exercises on Lorelle on WordPress.It’s time to blog the news and current events for April in our Blog Exercises.

Has it been easy or hard to find news and current events to publish once a month on your site?

Sometimes the muse hits us when we learn of a newsworthy event that directly relates to us. Other times we have to struggle to find any connection with the world around us on our blogs.

Some bloggers do nothing but blog the news, each in their own way. Citizen journalists are spreading across the globe, reporting on the daily life of their communities as well as attention-getting news. Some report as witnesses. Others report from an observer perspective, commenting on the world and events around them.

Blog Exercise Task from Lorelle on WordPress.Your Blog Exercises today is to blog about a current event that directly or indirectly impacts your blog and your business.

Remember to include a hat tip link back to this post to create a trackback, or leave a properly formed link in the comments so participants can check out your blog exercise task.

    I do this from time to time, and one of my latest posts is an example of this practice: Titled “Get out of my head please.“, It’s sort of an extract of recent science breakthroughs that in my opinion are more concerning than anything else(, hence the title).

    The hardest thing with such practice is the fact (?) that somebody has already let the world know about these recent events. This is one of the hardest dilemmas I have when posting recent news – I don’t want my posts to seem trite to savvy visitors.

    But, if you think about it, somebody has already written something about everything. So our response to this can be either “why bother?”, or “how can I supply my readers with added value”?

    That’s why I always try to add a link or a piece of information relevant/related to the news I’m (re-)reporting to my readers. In a way, I see this as one of the ways to differentiate “recycled” from “insightful” content.

      You are exactly right. I often think the long view is better and of more value as it is one that has more access to information as well as a well-thought perspective. I doubt you make things trite. You always add value – good for you!
