People might think that writing for a blog or creating posts on your blog might not pay off. Honestly if I wrote on this blog to make money I would have stopped the very first months I started the blog. I started this blog last year at the end of May when I finally decided I needed a place where I could share my ideas while expressing myself from my standpoint.
I had written many posts in the past for other blogs with the purpose of teaching others and most of my posts where tutorials. I started this blog was to express my random thoughts that where not aligned to a specific subject.
I have inclined myself towards some topics more than others but at the end I am still trying to figure out what you want as a reader. I experiment every once in a while with various topics making sure my point of view stands out.
Posting With A Purpose
Every time I write a post I do it with a purpose. Those purposes vary with current events around me, the world, my online community, and many other factors.
I write this blog to share my thought and ideas with you the reader.
Today I can say some of the readers like yourself have given me a great opportunity to be part of the Hispanicize Conference not only as an attendee but as a Speaker and Moderator to some of the sessions.
The session I am moderating today will focus on Communispace’s Hispanic Identity Project, a research project conducted to better understand the growing U.S. Hispanic population, and its findings.
My Payback from Blogging
One of the payback’s I have gotten from writing this blog was the Payback of you taking time to read my posts whenever you get a chance. I really appreciate that over all the other content there is online, TV, Newspaper, Magazines, Books, and other channels you choose to periodically come by and read about my experiences and my thoughts.
I have to clearly say that the biggest PayBack I have received other than having you as a reader of my blog is having you as part of my community. My blog has enabled me to reach a new audience that little by little they have been become part of my close community of online friends. For those of you that read the blog thank you and even a bigger thank you for those that go the extra mile and leave a comment with your thoughts.
Thanking you for stopping by and I hope count on your support by following along the #hispz11 hashtag on twitter since I am sure this opportunity will link a fe readers like you from my existing community on my blog to the new relationships I plan to strengthen and establish during this conference.
Any other suggestions on how you and I can take better advantages of this opportunity and others?
