Darren at Problogger.net has categorized three types of bloggers that might help you decide what direction your writing is going.
If you have started a blog and are on your way towards your blogging goals, this is a good read to see where you can actually take things.
Like many of us, Darren began small and has worked his way up, building his body of work – or body of business, if you will.
The three categories essentially revolve around how you want to grow.
- 1. Jumping Up and Down on the Same Spot
- 2. Jumping from One Random Thing to Another
- 3. Springboard Bloggers
Options 1 and 2 are the two extremes: The first sticks with one and builds it. The second is referring to ‘serial starters’, as Darren calls them; those who start good blogs and jump from one to another.
Springboard Bloggers are those who do both to some extent. Start a series of successful blogs and building them to a certain point and then moving on.
Understanding that you have these options means you’re setting goals, and are almost defined by character type. Are you a personal blogger or an entrepeneur?
