Even though we work online, we still leave a lasting impression, albeit of the digital kind. Surprisingly enough, many see their online appearance as a space filler, something to do other than watching TV for example. Reality shows us our capability in leaving massive foot prints everywhere we go.
You and your blog can leave a massive impression on another person. I think many of you underestimate the effect you actually have on others. Even if you are brand new.
People come online to either waste time, find information, shop or build a business. My intentions with this blog have always been to help aspiring freelance writers and bloggers to find their ways and nothing gives me more satisfaction than knowing I have inspired yet another person to get out of their comfort zone.
In writing my online story I hope to inspire others to follow in my footstep and turn their lives around for the better. Regardless of who you are or what you know, you too have a strong foot print to offer, if you wish.
Ask yourself. What is your online foot print? Where have you left lasting impressions? Is it on your blog, on a website, in a forum or even a chat room?
If you think about the value you can give does this make you feel all fuzzy inside? I guess if you are anything like me it will. We can all do our bits to make this world a better place and we can start with our blogs. As bloggers we can build credibility and trust by doing the right thing.
Think of ways to help others without spending all your energies, all the while providing value to the online community.
This could mean you could offer:
- Services in return for products
- Advice in return for gratification
- Knowledge about your topic of expertise in exchange for somebody else’s knowledge on another topic
There is so much we can do as bloggers to reach a wide readership and leave a positive impact as some kind of legacy.
Did you realize your blog could actually be a legacy to your children, grand children or family descendants. Just imagine how we would feel if our grand parents or parents would have blogged their lives. We could read about their experiences, see pictures and generally feel with them on their journey. What an amazing inspiration this would be.
Wouldn’t that be fantastic?
Leaving a positive online foot print should be our motivation to keep blogging. It is our present to mankind – here to stay for eternity (or so we hope).
