The Case Of Bloggers Wanting Different Things

The Various Wants Of Bloggers

Those bloggers who have planned things out from day one obviously know what they want.

Whereas, some of those bloggers who have joined recently are not sure what they want as yet.

Also, what one blogger wants may not appear desirable to another blogger.

As strange as it may sound, different bloggers want different things.

Some Bloggers Want To Be Left Alone

Yes, it is true, my friend. There are bloggers who want to be left alone. Those type of people do not care about:

  • Views
  • Comments
  • Likes
  • Followers

In the majority of instances, these people have their blogs set to Private (Only they can view what they have posted on their blogs).

Some Bloggers Want To Interact With Their Fellow Bloggers

I am of the belief that the majority of bloggers on are open to the idea of interacting with their fellow bloggers.

As a matter of fact, I am one of the many bloggers who enjoy interacting with other bloggers

The interaction is usually done in the form of:

  • Reading blog posts from my fellow bloggers.
  • Commenting on the blog posts that I read.
  • Pressing the Like button on the blog posts that I enjoyed.

Many years ago, a woman left and created a blog over on Blogger because she claimed that no one on wanted to interact with her.

So, it is without a doubt, that interaction means a lot to many bloggers.

Some Bloggers Want Lots Of Views

There are bloggers who want their blogs to receive lots of incoming views (And when that does not happen, they become disgruntled).

Little do they know, that they have to work hard for those views.

The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that building a readership takes time.

Also, the blogger with a larger readership has the potential of acquiring a larger amount of incoming views to their blog.

By the way, if you happen to be one of those bloggers who have an interest in acquiring views, my blog post, 10 Ways To Attract New Readers, would be of interest to you.

Some Bloggers Are Undecided

There are people who created an account on and have not set up their blog as yet; when you click on their name, you are forwarded to a page that reads, “Coming Soon”.

The truth is that we cannot force them to set up their blogs.

We will simply have to wait until they decide to set up their own blogs.

One of my followers have the “Coming Soon” displayed on their page for over two months now (They have me wondering if they will ever make the time to set up their blog and post something on it).

Apparently, bloggers who have “Coming Soon” displayed on their page do not know what they want for themselves as yet.

Some Bloggers Want To Make The Lives Of Others A Living Hell

There are bloggers who want to make the lives of others a living hell; they do that by:

  • Being disrespectful to you in your blog’s commenting section.
  • Harassing other bloggers in your blog’s commenting section.
  • Being disrespectful to your guest bloggers via your blog’s commenting section.

Unfortunately, these types of people enjoy being a nuisance to others in the blogosphere.

My blog post, 5 Ways Bloggers Can Handle Trolls, will teach you how to deal with those types of people.

Some Bloggers Merely Want To Have Fun

The types of people who like to have fun in the blogosphere are usually those who are personal bloggers (They have formed friendships while they were interacting with other bloggers).

Also, some bloggers would not blog at if blogging was not fun for them.

Having fun is one of the perks that some personal bloggers enjoy.

Some Bloggers Want To Make Money Blogging

For the record, I am not against any blogger making money off of their blog; what I dislike is bloggers attempting to spam the living daylights out of me with the intention of making a livelihood.

Back in August of this year, someone tried to use my blog’s commenting section to promote their book on Amazon (That person blatantly ignored my blog’s Commenting Policy page).

Anyway, bloggers who want to make money blogging can do so by:

  • Promoting their books on their own blog.
  • Monetizing their blog.
  • Providing consulting services.
  • Writing sponsored content and publishing it on their blog.

Now, before attempting any of those things, I recommend perusing the Terms of Service (The last thing that you want is to suffer the wrath of

Final Thoughts

Where the blogosphere is concerned, different bloggers will always want different things.

The most important thing is you knowing exactly what it is that you want out of blogging.

If by chance, you have not figured out what it is that you want from blogging, I do hope that you figure it out real soon.

  1. SH*t. I was gonna add “Some people in the blogosphere just want to be the first to comment in the comment section.”

    It turns out someone already beat me to it.😕

    Great share, Renard.

  2. Wonderful blog topic Renard. I am one of those bloggers who love to interact with other fellow bloggers since I actually like reading their work and if it really blew me away, I leave a comment and applaud their work. I am an extrovert when it comes to blogging, even in real life I enjoy talking to people who are alike or have similar interests such as fashion as much as I have. Thank you for this post my buddy, I know now what type of blogger I am and what I want👏💯

  3. Interesting as ever Renard. You’re right about the range of needs being met from blogging. It’s probably also true that it’s unlikely to be just one thing but acombination of needs/wants that motivate us to blog – and I suspect that will vary day to day too

  4. Excellent points made, Renard. I’ve seen many “Coming Soon” blogs as of late. I feel it’s best to have at least some idea of the intent of your blog before you begin. I’ve seen some blogs that are nothing but quotes and the blogger does a beautiful job of presenting them. This seems a simple way to start out and get used to blogging. Also, a blog with recipes is another good idea for beginners. Blogging is a step-by-step process, IMO.

  5. So many different reasons people are blogging. Some just fell into it, enjoyed it much more than they ever imagined, have been overwhelmed by the friendliness from other WordPressers, and just wish they had more spare time to give to what turns out to be have been a very enjoyable thing.
