5 Tips for Blogging about Lucid Dreaming

Posted in: blog

This is rather off the beaten path for this blog, but I’m going to write for the contest that Problogger is holding. At the same time, I really want to make it valuable to the other bloggers who read this, so I’m going to write some things I think help the everyday dreamer in blogging. If you think I’m selling out somehow by doing this, I don’t plan on doing this often or even anytime in the near future, because I value my readership (whatever size it is), but at the same time, I do have some thoughts on this subject. (In no particular order)

Tips for Keeping A Dreaming Blog On Topic, Relevant, and Interesting:

1. Keeping an online dream journal may attract some attention from people who have similar experiences, but by and large it doesn’t help anybody outside of entertainment value. Unless you somehow extract valuable lessons from your dreams or something similar, most people will lost interest quickly.

2. Use your experience to help others overcome obstacles you’ve already surpassed. This way, as you progress farther in your dream work, others can benefit from it and will continue reading.

3. Use dreams as an inspiration for your writing. Dreams are an amazing resource for innovation, and have been for many, many, years, so utilize them.

4. You can bend/break the first rule when you have a really important and insightful experience. If you just had your first lucid dream, and you really felt a great feeling of introspective power over yourself, others would probably be interested in reading about the experience. (especially if they’re still trying to get a lucid dream, it’s great inspiration)

5. Don’t lose sight of your goal, whatever it may be.
