Getting a bit personal here...
But honestly how cute is that photo? That is a photo of myself and my daughter trying in matching dresses because that is outrageously cute. Agreed? Agreed. This blog post is about getting personal in a blog post (how meta is that?) so I figured I'd start off by getting a little personal myself. But when is it appropriate to get personal in a blog post and when is it not? What topics, products and audiences lend themselves to a more personal tone or approach? I'm no expert, but I am a student so I can make some observations as I learn.
When the topic is something of a personal nature to the author I believe writing in a more personal way connects the audience better. So if the author is writing about a product for, say, infant care, the author is likely a parent the readers are likely parents or parents-to-be. This audience likely responds best to personal experience. If the author is writing about makeup there isn't a ton of need to get deep down and intimate with your personal life.
I think that a blog should also maintain a style. If the blog is often writing in a certain voice it should maintain that voice throughout. Some authors just tend to write the way that they speak therefore giving their blog a more personal feel regardless of the information given.
That's my take!
