Which type of blogger are you?

Good Morning Dinks.  Many of our readers here on Dinks Finance are fellow bloggers and today we are going to discuss the business of blogging.  Some of us got into blogging because we love writing, some of us started blogging as a way to earn a secondary income and some of us fell into the world of blogging by accident and we stayed around because we love it.

I personally hate labels but if there is one thing that I learned from attending the BlogHer conference in August and the FinCon financial blogging conference in September it’s that all bloggers like to be labeled. My personal blog is a lifestyle blog about loving life and learning to love myself while on the quest to find personal happiness.  However my professional writing is mostly in the financial sector. So what is my label? What should I put on my business cards personal financial writer or lifestyle blogger?

Our good friends at Zemanta recently published an article titled “What Kind of Blogger Are You? 7 Different Blogger Types Explained.  If you have been blogging for any period of time over a year I am sure that your blog and your writing style are different now than they were when you first started, I know that mine are.  That is the great thing about having a blog, it’s all about you and it’s what you want it to be.

Dinks Finance readers and fellow bloggers let me ask you, What Kind of Blogger Are You?

1. A hedonist blogger promotes different lifestyles to make people’s daily routines better.  Hedonists are emotional bloggers and they are not afraid to express feelings or reach out to other people and bloggers. If you read my personal blog then you know that I am a very emotional writer.

2. Techie bloggers don’t appreciate the writing process as they do spreading the word about the latest tech gadgets, sharing their knowledge of everything tech-related and educating other who are less tech-savvy.  I think it’s safe to say that I am not a tech-blogger; I don’t even have an iPhone.

3. The professional blogger is someone who blogs as a part of their job or who left their job to blog full time.  Some professional personal finance bloggers include Financial Samurai and Budgets are Sexy.

4. A preacher blogger enjoys sharing and interacting with readers.  Preachers share their views and opinions and welcome discussions from readers and other bloggers. Preacher bloggers discuss politics, religion, culture, current news and activism.

5. The life improver blogs about how to make life better. My new book (to be released soon) is titled “A Better You” and it’s all about making positive changes in your life to become a happier person. Life improvement bloggers share their know-how knowledge and give support to people on how to improve their life.  That statement seems a little bit strong. I personally don’t like to tell people what to do as much as I like to share my personal stories about how I did it.

6. A beauty hunter blogger is always on the hunt for things to make life beautiful.  I personally love beauty bloggers because I know very little about makeup and cosmetics.

7. The life stage blogger likes to tell their life story as they go through every stage in life from being a student and being a parent to getting married and becoming retired.

So which type of blogger are you?
