This is not a headline-worthy article!

10 March 2010 No Comment

You may have noticed the wordpress theme I am using has a section for a Headline article and another section for featured articles. Supposedly the best, most thorough or enjoyable post should fill this most lofty of positions. But I have a problem and I would hazard a guess that I am not the only one who has this problem.

You see I am sort of a perfectionist, for lack of a better term. For some reason when I come up with a seemingly unimportant idea for a post that can go straight into my general content, by the time I have finished, the article has become blogging gold that needs to be rewarded with a position fitting of its quality as a headline or featured article. Somehow I take a simple straight forward idea or tip that would be useful to you my readers and as I began to explain the tip I take so many tangents and add so much content that the original purpose has been superseded by a far more important one. Its like writing a haiku with 30 syllables it no longer can be used for its original purpose.

I realise I have now come across completely arrogant and conceited as a blogger who is unable to write anything less than absolute quality. Whilst that is true, it is not my intention. This post has two intentions; the first to be a post that will simply be placed straight into my content and far away from the higher office of the great articles. The second is to provide advice for those of you with similar issues and give ideas on how to write content filling articles for your blog, because post frequency is important but also quite difficult.

Actually I probably should not be giving advice on post frequency and content fillers as I am notoriously bad at these myself. Also to go into detail would make this article useful and deserving on being promoted at the top of my home page which is definitely not my intention. So I will leave it at that and you can be sure you will be able to find more information about content filers in my headline section in the near future.
