Are you a creative blogger ?

Before I begin, let me ask you one question :- Are You a Creative Blogger ? I know what you are thinking. Before we can answer this question, we need to define what/who a creative blogger is. (and that’s exactly what we are going to do).

As Ayn Rand once said,

A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others
This quote inspired me to write this post. Before we define “creative blogger”, let’s look at the definitions for creativity  :-

Creativity (according to different sites online) is The ability to create!

Creativity is a mental process involving the discovery of new ideas or concepts, or new associations of the existing ideas or concepts, fueled by the process of either conscious or unconscious insight

the capacity to produce something which is both unique and useful.
In Blogging, we have a different definition for Creativity. Creativity in blogging is

The ability to create unique ideas (content)

Well, that is the basic definition of creativity in blogging, if you want a specific definition, you might have a take a deeper look at blogging. In blogging, you can apply creativity to each and every thing you do. For instance : Creativity in blogging is the ability to think new ideas, write them (in unique style using creativity) and promote them (in a different manner). Creativity is also the ability to engage with different bloggers. So, Now that we have defined what creativity is, let’s move on to the main theme of this post – Creative Blogger. You see, Blogging is a creative talent. As I mentioned above, you need creativity to blog – to maintain a blog that is successful in terms of attracting visitors.

Creative bloggers are the ones who care about creating content. They are the ones who are actually concerned about their readers. Creative bloggers are also the ones who has the ability to create new ideas (they are revolutionists when it comes to creating new content). Creative bloggers are also the ones who think, write, network and engage the most. Creative bloggers are the ones who are the most successful bloggers in this world. Every one in this world is creative ; the difference comes when we look at how we use our abilities/talents. Creative bloggers for example invest their time in thinking. They are excellent problem solvers (Usually you don’t see a mix between creativity and logic, but in blogging, they are one, they go together). As Einstein, the great scientist, once said ““Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them”. Creative bloggers are able to do this because they invest a lot of time in blogging (it takes a lot of time to create good content).

Creative bloggers are different from normal bloggers in that they work hard, have patience, passion and determination. Creative bloggers are the ones who act intelligently to drive traffic. They know when to publish the article. They know the secret to achieving a successful blogging career. Creative blogger are leaders. As Steve Jobs Once said ““Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” (Innovation = Creativity). All bloggers are leaders. But not all leaders are successful in their leadership. Creative blogger are different, they are successful in leading their followers in the right path.

So, how exactly can a blogger be creative ?

To become a creative blogger, you need to invest time, work hard (think, write, publish, promote and network), determine, be serious and be passionate.To accomplish all these, you need to gain experience and do you know how we can gain experience – By Blogging, Blogging, Blogging and more. You need to blog, comment and guest blog. Experience is a matter of big importance in blogging. Experience helps you to become a pro-blogger. To become a creative blogger, you just need to blog consistently.

Anyway, its time to wrap up. I think we had a great discussion about creative blogging (It isn’t over yet, you need to comment, before we can judge this post as creative). Anyway, let’s end our post by asking the same question :- Are you a creative blogger ?

One way that I try to stay creative is to just avoid influence from others and take my time to craft posts (which can take days of research). I shut off the outside world because it always messes with your creativity so when I’m down to writing, it all goes off until I’m done. Everything takes time and the longer you can invest toward something, the greater value you’ll be delivering (in my my and least).

HI Jeevan

I agree about creativity. It comes easier to some than others. If that is the case then it is important to work hard to improve in whatever creative area you are not excelling in.

I love writing quality content; researching my topic and then writing in a conversational way to engage my readers. However, that does not mean I don’t take note of other more experienced bloggers hints and tips when I visit their blogs.

Always keen to learn more to make me a better blogger. Thanks for sharing Jeevan. Good to question what we are doing and whether we can do better :-)

You present some interesting points. I read about how to improve my content and then I apply what I read, bit-by-bit. I have much to learn about blogging.

Blogging is hard work, but, I have finally found my passion after many years of living without a passion.

I love to mentally hone my ideas and my topic ideas seem to pop into my head faster these days than when I first started.

Good post!

Hi Jeevan,

You have done a good job mate! Being creative is without a doubt one of the most important ingredients for a successful blog. The best way to get a good name for yourself is by coming up with unique and revolutionary ideas – no doubt about it. Pretty much all of the well established blogs out there have done that, which is the reason why they’re at the top. Just being a follower of different methods and techniques, no matter how effective they are is not always enough.

Yes, creative bloggers think a lot before publishing any article on their blog. They care a lot about their readers and focus on creating valuables contents for them.
But it takes lots of hard work and persistence to be a different blogger than the normal one.

I try to be a creative blogger. I don’t always succeed, but I make a point of thinking deeply about the subject matter when I’m posting. And I try to write something imaginative and out of the ordinary on a regular basis.

Hey jeevan,

Thanks for the awesome guest post!

I would say that I agree with you that creativity is very important. It comes easier to some then most, but everyone is creative in their own ways if they just be themselves. In order to stand out from the rest of the crowd is by being creative. Add your voice in your writing, && write about the things you have a passion for.

Thanks again!

God bless,
William Veasley

Hey Jeevan,

I think being creative as a blogger is one of the key ingredients to become successful. I think with so many blogs talking about blogging and making money online, to succeed you need to give your own creative twist to writing about a particular subject. A lot of things have already been mentioned but if written in your own unique way, people will still come back and read about a particular subject again.

I think it’s pretty much like how Hollywood creates action hero films. Most of them are from comic books these days and they all have roughly the same storyline but each with a unique twist to it that makes people pay for the movie to watch. :)

Jeevan December 29, 2010 at 12:58 pm

Hi Bryan,

I agree. Creativity can help you to turn old content into new, fresh content. Nice comparison, with the movies. I agree. The unique twist aggregates human minds to watch it :) Thank you for your comment !
