There are 120 million blogs out there in the naked city, give or take a few. Assuming one read a blog a minute 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it would take a very long time to read them all–and being that most are poorly written and contain information of no value, it would seem even longer.
I do have one you might want to consider reading. It’s called “Doak TC” and its message is safety, primarily traffic safety. That safety message is understandable because Doak TC is Fred Doelker who, until he was put out to pasture in August 2009, was a traffic safety coordinator for AAA Michigan.
Fred’s job was to travel around the state preaching safety and making Michigan a better place to live as a result. Fred spent many of his days teaching groups and individuals how to avoid becoming a statistic as a motorist or as a pedestrian. He talked to seniors, children and everyone in between. Fred was also a great spokesperson for AAA Michigan and put a human face on a big corporation. However, because one couldn’t put a dollar benefit on what Fred did, Fred now lives in the northwestern community of Traverse City (TC), Michigan writing about safety while seeking an end to being out to pasture.
Fred knows safety and it shows in his writing. Although the information is especially useful to those who live in the snowy regions of Michigan (all residents), his blog contains useful information for anyone who drives, walks or flies. His blog would also be a good resource for the media since it contains a wealth of safety information. So would Fred for that matter since he translates wells from print to radio or television.
They (the unnamed blogging experts, that is) say successful bloggers are usually those who write about topics they have a passion for and are knowledgeable about. Fred’s blog fits that bill. In addition, Fred is a gifted writer with a knack for turning a phrase, and that in itself makes his blog worth reading. He also knows technology, but that’s a whole different topic.
Doak TC is a good blog out there among the millions and millions (and millions) of blogs. Give it a try. Oh, and be safe.
