Bloggers Dilemma: Are we driven to the edge of controversy?

b+ (Retire in Style Blog)

Aging in the fast lane with dancing and swearing may bring people get someone's attention. But the problem is I don't dance that much and honestly I try very hard not to swear. 

Blogging is what I do when I need to unwind or rant or share a notion. Traffic really doesn't matter I know. In spite of knowing we don't care a lot, people like me want to know if anyone listening!

I have learned that as a lady of a certain age that I need to stand up and be noticeable before anyone will listen to me. I seem to have become a little invisible...not completely but still.

Aging in the fast lane with dancing and swearing may bring people get someone's attention. But the problem is I don't dance that much and honestly I try very hard not to swear. Having a glass of wine is just not that uncommon anymore. A little self examination is good for me but, honestly, who really cares? Do I need a little controversy to let people know that I am still here? Maybe.

SOOO...three guesses where I went for new attention getting ideas? Pinterest! Pinterest is about a lot more things than pictures of beautiful design. There are pages and pages of ideas from young bloggers about how to make money, how to start a blog and, best of all, things to write about.

Today I found out how to make $6000 with one big writing job. Did you know you could do that? I really don't want to go out and sell myself to the devil but still, wouldn't that be cool?

I found several that had lists of mistakes blogger make, reason's why a blogger started blogging (written by a 23 year old) and better yet how to make yourself look more professional in the blogging world.

But the best website was one with lists of blogging ideas. 250+ ideas. Hmmmm!

I may be an old dog but I can still learn a new trick or two. So, here I go...see you soon.

What new ideas have you had!
