I’m back home now. Finally hanging out with my ladies, my loves. They are enjoying Ellis Paul’s Road Trip on Blip.fm. There are hand movements for the song, Allison and Eva were really enjoying it.
Getting in late last night was tough as was getting up early to go to work today. I hadn’t been to the office in nearly a month. Vacation, being out sick and another quick trip out to Vegas kept me away for some time. So in the time I was gone not a lot of changes and I dived right back into projects like doing some video work. This is one busy week for me, nothing like a trial by fire sort of week.
I learned a very important lesson in my personal life today. And for free I’m going to pass this on to all the bloggers, parents, fathers and mothers out there. Are you asking the right questions? Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in what we want as well as what we think other people want that we miss out on what they truly need. People need to feel valued and your loved ones valued above all else. When you forget that, if you are lucky, they will let you know. If you are not lucky enough to get that godsmack from your loved ones then I am sorry.
What about your readers?
Are you asking what your readers really need from you? As bloggers we generally write for ourselves but occasionally we build communities, gain readers and commenters. People reading your blog most likely will not tell you what they need so you’ve got to ask what they need?
So, I’m asking what I hope is the right question. What do you need from me, my writing, my photography? And how will this help you?
