I read a few blogs regarding blogging, on a regular basis. Doesn’t that sound exciting? There is a post today on CopyBlogger that talks about enemies. Remember when I wrote about enemies? Well, here’s the subject again.
In the article Brian Clark explains why you should have an enemy or enemies. And if you don’t have one, go find one. He explains that it’s a common ground that you can connect on with your readers. Fight the machine. Or the common enemy that you and your readers may share.
So I thought about that. Usually I take in the advice of the infamous CopyBlogger and it does help. But this one I’m not so sure about. Maybe it’s because I feel that if I slay dragons I need to go on a rant and that is not what I want to do here. I also would rather not spread negativity. Whomever or whatever I might see as an enemy, no matter how large or pervasive the issue, there is always another side and that means other people that feel the opposite. I would rather not stir a pot just to get people in my corner unless I’m ready to step up and be an active part of a solution. But I know…never say never.
So, hypothetically, if we were to have an enemy who do you think it would be? eBay fees? Cheap imported beads? Probably both of those together. So, should I champion a cause and get some angry people in my corner? Nah.
