I recently read an article that stated a good blogger should always have a FAQ post on their blog, which is ridiculous because how do they know what “good bloggers” require for their blogs? I bet the author of the article isn’t even a blogger, but someone with a deadline who gets paid by the word.
However, it got me to thinking, maybe I do need an FAQ on my blog.
FAQ is short for Frequently Asked Questions.
But here’s the thing: I never get asked frequently about anything as it pertains to my blog.
This is not to say that my readers aren’t inquisitive. quite the opposite! They are engaging and often peppy. They just don’t ask me the same questions regularly, which could mean one of many things.
1- I answer the question on the first ask.
2- There is nothing remotely interesting enough on my blog to get a question frequently asked.
But I powered through and scrounged together a list of questions that have been asked of me, because those who know me well know I can create a blog post out of pretty much anything.
Why I am not photogenic? CHECK
- why are you still blogging?
The better question is why are you still reading?
The short answer is that I love to write. I’ve thought of quitting several times over the years, but I love it and you way too much.
- haven’t you been blogging for like, ever?
I have! I’ve been writing non-stop for eight years this June, That in the blog world is for, like, ever.
- are you making a lot of money blogging
- why are you so obsessed with john hughes?
- how do you have almost 8000 followers on pinterest?
Your guess is as good as mine. Probably 4,000 are from my master bath post alone. I’m noticing lots of spam accounts or bots (as in robots) following me too. So probably another 2000 of those accounts. Which leaves me with only 2000 real followers, which is much more realistic.
- how is the menopause thing going?
Shitty, but thanks for asking!
- how do I start a blog?
If you want a blog for the sole purpose of writing, I can help you. If you want a blog for the sole purpose of making money, I can’t but there are many tutorials on Pinterest that can.
- I bet you are really creative.
I bet you’ve never read my blog.
- why does your screenplay’s judd nelson have a rash?
- do you ever get annoyed with other bloggers because I do!
All the fucking time.
