 If you got 3 or more A's:  

You’re a Person on a Mission, and That Mission Is To Blog!


You have a voice and you want to be heard! Self-publishing online seems like a great fit for you. It sounds like you could be a blogger that enjoys storytelling. Read as many blogs as you can and take notes on what you like and don’t like about them, this will help you find your voice. Remember, if you do start a blog, send me a Tweet so I can read it! ;)


 If you got 3 or more B's:

Move Over Bloggers, There’s a New Kid In Town!


It sounds like you are a creative person who would resonate well with readers online. If you think you’d like blogging, you might want to hone your photography skills for doing projects or sharing your creations. We have a sense we’ll be seeing you around here more often! (And don’t forget to share your content in the YMC community, you never know when a post will hit it big!)


 If you got 3 or more C's:

Arguably Undecided


You like your family and your me-time, and would probably do just fine to keep being a blog reader instead of a blog writer; however, if blogging is something you’d really like to try, just remember to be consistent with your approach. Blogging is a great way to connect with people online, but you can only connect with people when you’re there.


 If you got 3 or more D’s:

Back Away From The Computer, Slowly


You’ve got a lot of stuff going on, and that’s okay. Not everyone in this world was meant to be a blogger. After all, if we all blogged there would be nobody left to read them. If blogging isn’t your passion, or even really an interest, then its probably not worth pursuing. But who am I to tell you what to do? If you seriously think you could be the next Bloggess, then buy yourself a domain name and get writing!
