    And yes one more important question to ask
    Do personal blogging requires lengthy paragraphs/content to rank in google?

    I'm planning to blog and do an E-journal, but I want to reference/quote/paraphrase books and link links to music or photos. How do I go about copyrighting them correctly?

    Hello Mam, I recently started a blog.
    It's a personal blog, I want to ask that do personal blogs have competition? And do personal blog get traffic?

    And please suggest me from where I should introduce myself to reader's?

    I write, because my writing is faster, than my typing. I love speaking better on a recorder app.

    I have written, audio, and video journals since age 15 to my present 78. I use the recorder voice app, and my laptop recorder, so no need for a mic. It is a wonderful brain and heart dump.

    I use yellow legal pads and tear out an write on both sides, Please date month, day, year, and the day of the week.

    I like to write what I ate that day, and the good and ugly of the news.

    I use photo albums for pictures,postcard, and travel remembrances.

    Look at others around the world and locally and help non beggars with both hands

    Hands are for helping and not hurting.

    All Lives matter. ALM. God is speaking folks, so behave and listen. The world is one.

    I do mix up days and years in one journal, for I like to use all my space and paper.

    Write in a journal as if someone will find it...then they will go on top of a roof with a megaphone and read your entries out loud...if you really want to keep something private dont write it in a journal...

      In my mind my journals have always been a private thing to me but when i write, on my mind it's always like someone would eventually read it. So i started to have a habit of whenever i write something so personal and secret, i would eventually collect it and burn it. 😋
