Please don’t scared here. The above header is just a blog’s title. And I hope you’ve heard of this, don’t judge a book by it cover? So must you not judge this post. The word ‘death’ scare many of us but yet still we all want to get to Heaven. Hahahaha!!!
What is your value after you die as a blogger? I have seen soo many ‘deaths’ as a blogger and at one time I nearly experienced. Yes, I came close to it but thank God I never did it. I came close to it when I wanted to sell my blog.
Abandoning is what I mean. It is of course really equal to dying. It is really sad to see soo many blogs and bloggers disappear without a word.
Does any name come in mind? Yes I know you’re going to mention Ehsan. Ehsan of GuideandNews.com This was a young guy doing lots of wonders in the blogosphere but yet still left without a word at least.
Another name is a she. Sapna of H4HITECH. Who remembers her? Sapna’s blog was everywhere and it became more or less like every blogger’s diary where great infographics were shared. I just liked her.
Emmanuel Cudjoe is the next name. Do you know him? He was one blogger with MYCUDJOE but left without a word as well.
Koj Tajo of Bloggingalways.com was there as well. This guy was simply magnificent. The list will be numerous and unending I know.
What was the value these guys left behind after leaving the blogging? And I will tell you it was priceless.
Tears drained down my eyes last Saturday when I came across one post. IS MYCUDJOE DEAD? That was of course heartening. Why will anyone want to write about me when I left? And I guess it all boils to the value I provided as newbie blogger.
I contacted the guy and asked him to delete the post. We are now friends on Facebook. We had a long chat that day and it was obvious the world still need you and me as bloggers.
Many have left the blogging world due to reasons best now to them. So ask yourself, if you are to leave to the blogging scene right now, what will be your value?
This is what one guy did, when he wanted to find out whether he was still needed by his employer.
A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits (phone numbers).The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation.
Boy: ‘Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?
Woman: (at the other end of the phone line): ‘I already have someone to cut my lawn.’
Boy: ‘Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now.’
Woman: I’m very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn.
Boy: (with more perseverance) : ‘Lady, I’ll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of Palm beach , Florida.’
Woman: No, thank you.
With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.
Store Owner: ‘Son… I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job.’
Boy: ‘No thanks.’
Store Owner: But you were really pleading for one.
Boy: No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the Job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to!’
This is called self-appraisal. If someone was to pitch for your current role, what will your readers say about you?
A word to a wise is enough. Providing quality is what matters the most and everything else is secondary!
