“Successful blogging is not about one time hits. It’s about building a loyal following over time.” – David Aston
I am probably the last person you would ask about the intricacies on blogging. I really don’t understand the nuts and bolts about WordPress. My journey in blogging has basically been trial and error.
However, once in a while I have little things pop up that gives me a sense of accomplishment. Things like this:
The other day a thought came to me about blogging. It was this, “do the work, then let the work work”.
Here is how I would define “the work”
a. Be yourself
b. Try to be consistent
c. Interact with other bloggers. When I interact with others I try to stay within the subject of their post. I do my best to be respectful and courteous. One blogger has had to take down the comment section because of some being rude and outright asses.
d. I try to step out of my universe, the bubble that I usually read or comment. I use the section of “Search” and “Tags” found on the left side. I like to enter a topic on either the “Search” or the “Tags”. I have found some great posts and have even added them to blogs that I follow.
So dear reader, it is because of you encouraging me along this blogging journey that has kept me going. For that I say, “Thank you”!
