Wow.  Sometimes things happen for a reason and we had the opportunity to listen to one of our areas most successful bloggers.  Thanks to the staff at News 10 who hosted the event and allowed Alejandro Reyes – – to share some insight on his success.  The topic was exciting as well as full of some simple and to the point information. With that said I would like to share some insight with many of you who are starting down the road of blogging.  Alejandro’s story is awesome to say the least and if you ask him if he planned for his blog to go viral he would probably respond he did it because he “loves people”. and help to promote your local neighborhood in the Sacramento area.  Our goal is to help our neighbors get the word out about some of the positive people and local events going on.  We at Access Sacramento are helping to train folks in what we call our NNBs or Neighborhood News Bureaus. If this catches your attention go check out the site and if you would like more information E-mail us at  We would love to hear from you and Happy Blogging.


This wasn’t the first time I listened to someone speaking about blogging but you could definitely tell the passion that came from Alejandro.   Some of the key points he shared and that you should think of before starting a blog are as follows: 

  • What are you passionate about and showcase it? 
  • Be a great storyteller and share your blog with your own special twist. 
  • Create a catchy title that people will remember so they can come back.
  • Study your market and research similar blogs to help with yours
  • Set up your own community to help get the word out

Remember these are just a few things to consider. Write your blog with passion. You will enjoy it more and so will your readers.
