I know I’m not the only one guilty of being a serial-blog abandoner. I’d ask for a show of hands, but I wouldn’t want to embarrass anyone who is currently reading. I can’t even begin to count the number of times I’ve had a great idea for a blog, gotten it started, written some content, and then.

Hi Kyra,

Though it's true that business, personal, and other types of blogs are different in many ways, I'd argue they do have at least some similarities too. All should have a niche, voice, individuality, or something that makes them unique. All theoretically aspire for a readership, no matter how small. And all are an exercise in creating an online community, whether of loyal customers or of family and friends. (If you didn't want readers for your personal blog, why not just keep a diary?) There are certainly plenty of differences, as you point out. But I think there are also many lessons in the craft of blogging that can be shared across all the various genres and certainly commonalities that all great blogging shares. Thanks for the thoughtful post and for the increased opportunity for community it has created, truly one of the most important aspects of the medium, no matter what your purpose for writing.:)

Heather: I agree with your thoughts. I believe in the integration of the personal and professional in your blogging. My personal blogging has lead to business and vice versa; I have created personal relationships with business bloggers.

Great post Kyra. I have my own blog which is business and personal but it rarely gets a look in these days as I need to keep other business blogs populated in one of my jobs. Definitely being online is a must - how else would people know about you. Thanks for sharing on Bizsugar.com
