My Blog is Boring.

Yes, the first step is admitting it to yourself. So, hi, my name is Matt, and I am the author of a boring blog.

Better blogs than this have gone under when authors with brilliant creative flames have been burned down to blackened nubs. At this rate, given the mild form of intellectual warmth this blog produces, I’ll be able to produce this crap for eons. That notion doesn’t make me happy. So, what is someone to do with a boring blog?

On a basic level, I think I should probably focus a single topic that interests me, aka niche blogging. I guess I could talk about law, but who would want to read that? I could talk about videogames, but it’s much better to play games than write about them? Or, I could blog about my personal life, but then again, I’m pretty dull to begin with?

I’ll give it some thought, and anyone reading this has any ideas, let me know.

After my first year of blogging, I had to stand up and admit to the world that I was a bland blogger. Boring, I'm not sure... But bland, definitely. That means, no controversy, no profanity, no sexual topics, no politics, and negativity kept to a minimum.

Hey, so far it works. My readership has gone up consistently over the past two years. I'm getting a little bit of ad money. I find it easier to blog because I'm not trying so hard to be clever or controversial.
