You will not get popular by being just another somebody in the blogosphere. Everyone should know that by now. But, unfortunately, some of us don’t even know if we have a quality that makes us unique to the world of blogging. However, we all have ways of being unique in the blogosphere, and it can come by simply illuminating your own self into an article.

Finding Your Inner Uniqueness
With time, you will notice characteristics from your writings that will represent how you are in life. It is almost amazing how well I can visualize a person just by reading the content they publish. You are not just reading words. You are reading about the life of an author. This is why I find the blogosphere so exciting—each and every person has a unique voice and attitude. It is part of the reason why I enjoy getting to know authors of the content I read.
If you can’t discover what makes you unique to the blogosphere, you might consider asking some of your more devout readers what they think of you. Your peers will able to help you to identify yourself as a blogger and person. While many of you are fine with not knowing these things about yourself, personally, I find it extremely reassuring. It is almost like a confidence boost for me to know what I represent in myself and my writings.
Now, I figure that someone will get on my case if I don’t answer my own question, so for those of you that wonder what I think about myself, here you are:
I offer all readers my unbound truth and shrewdness with all of my published content. I also take pride with ensuring that my content meets the standards of those that invest the time to read it—after all, why should you have to read a low quality article? I will express myself without holding back, and will work to fix something that is wrong. Finally, I would never remain at a job that would place limitations on what I could write about.
To sum it up—I am deeply passionate (almost completely obsessed) about the truth, and that is a significant portion of my life.
But What About You?
I want to know what makes you unique. What makes you so compelling to have your content read by thousands or even millions of people? If you know these things, tell us about yourself in the comments section. Maybe others will find their way to getting to know the great blogger and person within you.
