    Amazing post! I loved the little exercise so much I decided to go ahead and post my answers here… maybe others can too and we can learn from the insights 🙂

    If your blog was a car, what would it be and why?

    It would be a Hyundai Elantra – Budget car that get’s the job done WELL!

    If your blog was an animal, what would it be and why?

    A turtle, or some other slow moving animal… I take things one step at a time and never stop working.

    If your blog was a famous person, who would it be and why?

    Albert Einstein. He was a creative thinker working in a field of rationalists, standing out in a way that made a difference in the world.

    If your blog was a food, what would it be and why?

    Coffee (if you consider that a food), because that’s the fuel of my blog lol.

    If your blog was a movie or television show, what would it be and why?

    Some documentary meant to inspire. TV isn’t of much benefit to me, so I can’t answer that one.

    I enjoyed this very much, thanks for writing it!

    What makes your blog authentic is that you practice what you preach. I read the blog about your grandmother carrying outdated gloves in her Gucci bag when she went to Lincoln Center. That one blog covered many of the points you bring up in this blog. You told a story, it was relevant, it was authentic (what’s more authentic than a story about one’s mother/father or grandparent) and you made it interactive by encouraging the reader to think of one’s blog in non-linear terms.

    Nice work.

    Super list! Serious bloggers should take notes! The main point to me is to make the blog interesting and unique. The only way to do that is with fantastic content coupled with a great writing style. I strive to achieve both on my blog 🙂

    Heidi, this is a good list of what goes into making your blog your own. And that is the only thing that makes people come back again otherwise they could get that article they just read anywhere. I really need to be better about that on mine.
