Working to Make my Blog Better

November 28, 2009

Probably, the kindest thing that someone would say about my blog is, “It has potential.”  I know I have a lot to learn.  Fortunately, there are tremendous resources available on the web to help fledgling bloggers hone their craft.

Some bloggers are so helpful that I follow them regularly on Twitter, and subscribe to their blogs. 

Darren Rowse aka Problogger has written an e-book entitled 31 days to a Better Blog, and slowly I am working through his chapters and homework assignments.  Problogger writes at

I also read Marco Saric, a Londoner who produces  He has some great ideas without being too technical for me. 

Recently, I came across a link for a blog post entitled “Ow! Ow! It’s so boring it hurts my head!”  What a catchy title–I had to give it a click.  The first paragraph read, “Hey.  I was just reading your blog and I got so bored that it actually hurt my head.”

That reeled me in.  I had to read the whole post to see if he mentioned me by name.   And that is how I met (figuratively) Nicholas Cardot.  It was a great post, so I subscribed to his blog by email.  Soon I received his next post entitled The Great Guest Post Ultra-Marathon, in which he offered to write a guest post for anyone on a topic that they select.  This sounded like a super idea to me, so I shot him a quick email saying, “Count me in!”, and he did.

Since my most recent posts have been about our Great South Pacific Adventure– which is on our Bucket List, I asked Nick to write about his Bucket List.   And he did.  It is quite a different perspective–Gen Next vs. Baby Boomer.  It follows this post.  I hope you enjoy it.  Nick, thanks for being my very first Guest Poster.
