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 ?
