Similarities Between Blogs & Coffee Shops #MondayBlogs #BloggingGals #coffee

 

Blogs are like coffee shops for the following reasons:

  1. Your blog is like the coffee shop. It’s a warm and friendly place where people come on a regular basis to socialise, read or just hang out.
  2. Your blog posts are like coffee. Once a customer has consumed one of your posts they might get a rush of creative inspiration, erupt into a fit of giggles, get a warm glow, say something profound or just go quiet on you.
  3. A coffee shop is where you can bump into friends and acquaintances. A blog is similar in that you can spot virtual friends and acquaintances hanging out too…in the comments box.
  4. Coffee shop owners can look a little harassed if the coffee shop gets busy, the coffee machine goes on the blink and customers start complaining about a sour taste to their drink. Blog owners can also get a sweaty brow when Twitter is busy, readers start to leave comments about links not working and some bright spark spots a typo!
  5. All coffee shops have a different feel to them; some are quiet and tranquil whilst others are lively and buzzing. The same goes for blogs. Some are peaceful and relaxing whilst some are just hip and rocking!
  6. It takes skill and finesse to whip up a good cup of coffee. A good barista will make lots of quick hand movements and have a look of intense concentration. It is the same for a good blog post, it takes a lot of expertise, some rapid hand movements (adding images, links, hashtags, checking spelling) and a look of intense concentration.
  7. The coffee shop owner goes through their takings at the end of the day and they will go though a range emotions; joy – if the business is good, happy – if the business is average and pain if the business is down. As a blogger you also go through a range of emotions as you scrutinise your takings – your blog stats! There will be mild hysteria Β if your blog stats are up, relief if they are average and intense suffering if they are down.
  8. Coffee shops attract writers and so do blogs.
  9. Coffee shop owners like customers who tip. Bloggers like readers who click like. Both are little signs of appreciation.

Have a wonderful day and make sure you stop by some blogs today!

  1. I think my blog is like an empty storefront. You know it’s there but you have no desire to really stop in and see if it’s actually empty or just unpopular.

  2. I love this! Probably because one of my favorite places to go is a coffee shop πŸ™‚ It’s nice to connect with you, I look forward to your posts. Take care, Jenny
