They Still Reap Dividends

“The currency of blogging is authenticity and trust.”

Jason Calacanis

I am not a leading authority when it comes to blogging for a keep learning new traits with it. Yet I find that many things about it are always gaining dividends. Here are a few:

  • Interaction – You cannot go wrong when it comes to interacting with other bloggers. It does not hurt to even interact with bloggers who you do not follow.
  • Tags- The tags you use when writing your blog post is effective.  This blogger has learned something new about tags. I learned about that you can follow tags. It is found on the left side of the reader. Type any tag that you may be interested in. A list of blog sites will appear in your reader. I found this is a great way to find other blogs for myself to read. Recently I read a blog post and clicked on “Like”. That simple act saw a dividend of a new follow for my blog.
  • Rhythm of Writing – I have noticed that every blogger has a rhythm of writing in their blog posts. If you read many blogs you will find that each blogger has a rhythm.  You can recognize this if you read enough of a blogger’s post.
  • Categories – I have come to realize that the less categories you use the better. Over doing it within the categories can cause confusion with those who a reading a post or doing a subject, tag, etc., search.

So dear reader these little actions on writing a post still pays dividends!

    Great points! I think I’ll use the tag to find more blog posts. It’s much easier than scrolling through Reader! LOL

      I came upon the use of “tags” on the left of the reader by accident. I clicked on it and that is how I discovered you can follow “tags” to bring up all blogs with that specific tag.

          Cherie I learn something about bullies that I wish I would have known when I was in school.
          So this big community is sharing and learning from each other. That’s what makes the WordPress community so great!

      Cherie I have notice if you follow a blog long enough you will eventually notice that each writer has a distinct style.
      Like my blog I have that unique style.
      I have noticed even you Cherie have a distinct rhythm in your writing.

        Absolutely! I was scratching my head at first because I always knew it to be someone’s “style.” But after a minute or two, I got it! LOL
        I hope this finds you well!
