The Law of Reciprocity (Robert Cialdini) - "...people will be eager to help you when you have helped them first....."
It can be hard to start out blogging and find fresh material.
You want to blow your trumpet, but you may think that that is inappropriate. After all, we are often told that most people are interested in their favourite topic - themselves! Well, that may hold true for face to face conversations when you find that if you talk about YOU, the other persons' eyes glaze over, so you ask them questions and get them talking about themselves, their families, their interests and most often that person will walk away from that conversation thinking that you are a very interesting person.
Reminds me of that old joke:...."that's enough about me - let's talk about you - what do you think of me?..."
It seems, that when it comes to blogging and writing on the internet, the opposite holds true. You can very easily engage your audience by telling them things about you, about your life, your hopes, and dreams, even your pets!
I read a great blog article, recently on Pro Blogging Success called Blog Content Ideas - 40 Simple Ways to Never Run Dry!

These are just a few of the selection but they all have in common "giving of yourself".
People who choose to be on your subscriber list are there because there is something about you that they like or trust, so go with it, personalise your material, get down and deep and engage, ask what they want, ask about them, pose questions, and give great (well researched) answers and your audience will continue to grow. Give parts of yourself away by writing e-books, publishing short videos, set up polls and even forums once your site gets some traction.
It's well worth it, so 'nuff said - more later!
