It isn’t often (like maybe once in a blue moon) you have the joy and privilege of crossing paths with a consummate professional, outstanding blogger, and delightful human being like Keith Davis of espeaking (Easy Public Speaking).
Keith knocked on the door of Solo Mompreneur recently, read a few of my posts, and left not only comments in the box, but compliments, as well.
Talk about a hallmark moment!
What sincerely warmed my heart and made me feel appreciated in the blogosphere was his mention of my “short, sharp posts” that manage to deliver a valuable message in so few words. He also wrote that my posts were “easy to comment on”.
I responded by thanking Keith and letting him in on my secret — “Pigeonhole posts” are my signature writing style and one that I have been criticized about in the past.
A few bloggers have accused me of taking the lazy way out because I don’t write lengthy posts. One person actually said I wasn’t worth a hill of beans as a blogger and that maybe I should consider writing commercial jingles instead.
You know, that might not be a bad idea! Come to think of it, I hear there’s a lot of money to be made in that industry.
In case you’re curious as to why you won’t find a post with 500+ words in it on my blog …
I’ve settled into a form of writing that’s right for me – a comfortable fit (like my fuzzy bunny bedroom slippers).
Some bloggers work very hard at loading up the page with what I call “filler and flowery jargon” and, in essence, end up saying very little (at least very little that’s of interest to me).
Remember that axiom you learned in math class – “What is the shortest distance between two points?”
The answer is “a straight line”.
That’s what my blog posts are – the shortest distance between inviting you in and having you leave with something valuable.
P.S. If you’re at all interested in public speaking (or you just want to connect with a true gentleman and a fabulous blogger), please take a stroll on over to espeaking and introduce yourself to Keith Davis. And if you like, you can tell him I sent you.
