How I began blogging
By Dr. Letitia Wright, D.C.
I did not set out to become a blogger. When people started saying blogs got the most traffic, I converted my Wright Place TV Show site into a blog. At first I would post shows and do basic updates on what I was doing. But then I realized, I had a chance to share my own voice. I could write whatever I wanted. Mostly, I keep to the topics of the show: Business, Entrepreneurship, Publicity and Sponsorship.
However, I also take a few liberties and have fun. One post I wrote is called “I used to be an invisible friend”. I WAS one, not HAD one. It’s a great post, my home town newspaper somehow found it and reposted it. I get to post videos on horrible interviews and break them down for the blog reader. I get to post audio interviews. Blogging is fun for me. I never seem to run out of topics. I do however run out of time and offer guest post when I can. I love to write and writing comes easily to me. The real freedom came when I realized I did not have to write like Entrepreneur magazine or Black Business. I could be me and talk about who and whatever I wanted. I don’t think it will ever be a job I completely delegate away becuase I enjoy it so much.
Ok, that is not really news, I just felt like talking loud!

Her site is here.
Tinu Abayomi-Paul has inspired me to do 100 days of Blogging. Why?
To increase traffic or at least see if it increases traffic to blog daily. More traffic to your blog means more sales of your items and events, and more people signing up for your newsletters.
I also write the blog for Lash 28 So I may extend the challenge to that one.
What’s my plan?
1. write Monday, Wednesday and Thursday for 1 hour
2. Add materials to my older blog posts and link back to them
3. Post links to some great blogs I love.
4. Post about Publicity and Obscure holidays and how to tie in
5. If you post a comment that you are joining in, I will post links to YOUR blog and help you get more traffic.
I have privately dubbed this my summer of fun, so it will be interesting to see how I manage this when I want to make sure I am doing something every single weekend and enjoying my summer.Even if it’s just a day trip, I am adding more fun to my life.
So post below if you are in and the link to your blog, you’ll be helping me out!
