It was interesting to see lots of kittens entering into the blogosphere this week and caused the discussions enflamed.
Blogging has evolved and spanned over multitude of human activities. It is no longer just a personal web log. Informing, educating, networking, sharing, socializing, marketing, promoting, advertising, making money and many other actions are already entered and the show is already on!
Foreign exchange rates offering relative benefits to the low economy countries prompted more youngsters to dive into the field. A few hundreds earning per month makes possible to have a happy and comfortable life. Low investment and very low cost for blogging is more attractive to drive a test – to test a fortune. More people are added to learn blogging everyday.
Blogging is not that easy either – nothing is easy. They are only ‘make money online’ ads say it is easy. Devotion, diligence, intelligence and art of expression along with good strategy, networking and value makes you successful.
It is really hard for a new blog to build up readership and mark its presence. BlogEngage, BloggerLuv, MMOSocialNetwork, FAQPal are some boon where these new bloggers meet up with well grown, experienced and enthusiasts. These notworks are doing great service to provide a platform where a blogger learns, shares and promotes his posts.
It is time and experience that will burn and purify to grow as a mature blogger. Every newbie will try to imitate the adults as an infant starts speaking with ma-ma. There is nothing wrong that you said something you heard somebody else speaking about.
So, Where are the kittens?
You might have gone through many top blogging tips in many blogs and collected the post ideas on which you will write about. Did you notice kittens entering?

It was an interesting chat over the topic and I truely respect his feeling for freshness – something original that adds value to blogsphere. (http://www.blogengage.com/story.php?title=do-not-blog-about-any-of-these-subjects-or-i-will-kill-a-kitten)
Daniel Snyder referred in his blog InfoCarnivore to the original post and observes:
But unfortunately for the most part there is nothing purely original. Now I’m not big fan of cats, in fact I’m allergic, and I can’t stand them… so don’t see this post as me trying to protect a sweet little kitten. In fact as far as my input goes… whatever, get rid of the kitten. If I can add another blog post to the blogosphere that will help keep kittens far away from me, I probably will.
Here requires a proper guidance and suggestions of a more experienced bloggers like John Paul. Paul not only raised the grumbles vividly audible in blogsphere these days but presents some worthy tips to save your kittens. His recent post “Be A Blogger That Stands On His Own Two Feet” teaches how you can save those kittens on your blog.
Are you saving those kittens?
Though you leaned mimic and started to lift your first few steps, has it not be time to stand on your won feet? Are you too writing those posts BigJohn warned? Hey save those sweet kittens.
Saying this I wish to ask you, “Do you really think bloggers can’t write on a topic that was already written by somebody else?” How original are your posts? Original in form, theme, concept and value?
Would love to read your comments!
