In this blog exercise, you challenge is to write a “favorite things” post.
We all have favorite things. For a reader, it is one or more books, a series, or an author. For a knitter, it could be yarn or needles, or a favorite pattern that you can never do enough times and be satisfied. For pet lovers, it could be a favorite pet that changed their lives, or a breed they are passionate about. For a stamp or coin collector, it could be a specific item with a personal history for the collector. For photographers, it could be the techniques behind photography or the viewing of beautiful images. For a massage therapist, it could be a type of body oil. For a fan of WordPress, it could be a Theme or Plugin.
What are your favorite things?
Today’s blog exercise is to write a blog post listing and describing your favorite things.
Tell us why these things are special to you. Did they influence or change your life? Do you have a story or experience with these favorite things? Share the story.
By sharing your favorite things you reveal a little more about yourself to your readers.
Remember that blogging is a never-ending process of identifying and building relationships with like-minded individuals, people you want to spend time with and work to develop friendships and business partnerships. Revealing a little more about about your passions connects you with those special people passionate about similar things.
I’ve mentioned some of my favorite things, my hobbies and interests, during these blog exercises and I’ve found new and deeper connections with my readers, even to the point of sharing tatting patterns and tea sources. You never know what will open up that magical door to new connections.
