I’ve been getting quite a few offers to write articles for people. I’m pleased about that, but some of the offers just don’t match my sites. I just finished writing a real estate related post on my gardening (home and garden but more garden) blog and it ticked me off.
I should have refused the offer but I hemmed and hawed about it for several days and by the time I decided to do something about it the offer was about five days old so I felt guilty and ended up accepting it. I totally regret taking it though since it really doesn’t suit that blog at all.
I’m trying to really focus some of my blogs so, even though I know some of them are popular with advertisers, I’m going to have to try to fine tune what I write about on some of them from now on.
Do you find yourself veering off topic on some of your blogs occasionally? If you’ve done this you know exactly what I mean and you know it’s kind of difficult to get back on track again, but if you want to keep the readers that you’ve been trying to build up you have to stick to your guns and stay on topic.
