I wanted to do a quick follow up to yesterday’s post regarding poker blogs. I got a few emails from people asking what they should write about. First off, I have no idea what you should write about. The important thing is to find your little niche. I tend to post very infrequently about poker. I post a lot about things poker related. I tend to talk post about poker sites, other blogs, the poker industry, and here and there I’ve been known to write some posts people find funny. That’s MY style. It’s not right for everyone. I don’t know if HDouble could do comedy but he writes the hell out of a strategy post. I always check in with MeanGene for his take on televised poker. I know Pauly’s got solid, interesting tournament coverage. If they tried to do what I do they probably won’t do it well and if I tried to do what they do I would likely fail in a spectacular fashion.
That’s why I said in my Poker Blogs post that this is my creative outlet. I experiment with things. I write about this or I write about that and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. The whole idea of poker blogging is to find your little zone. If you can find that zone you’ll likely find an audience. If you’re trying to copy me or Iggy or BG you’re going to fail. There’s no secret to successful blogging.
