Setting Your Own Blogging Standards

BlogHer Original Post

With millions of blogs in existence and everyone shouting to have their voice heard, how is a new blog supposed to get noticed? Happy Hippie Homemaker turns the idea of failure on its head, embracing the idea that her beloved site might fail by other people's blogging standards even though it succeeds within hers. And, I've got to say, I really love her blog standards.

I started this blog to write. I've always wanted to be a writer. Because of this blog, I have written more in the last two years than I did in the seven years before that. I have done what I started this blog to do. I am writing.

Are you succeeding or failing by your own blogging standards?

Go read Happy Hippie Homemaker's post on why she thinks her blog will fail.
