New Observations About Blogging

“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”!

    I like that WordPress shows that message – it’s always fun when that happens! I also look around in tags for new blogs to follow.

    Thank you for this post. I am sharing it with my “new blogger” students. Authenticity and consistency are key. Consistency is sometimes difficult for me to manage.

    Blogging is the best thing that ever came to the internet, me thinks! In blogging, I’ve met some truly awesome people and made a circle of blogger friends. Also, I’ve found that bloggers are the realest, most authentic people on the web. Social media, on the other hand, is crawling with fakes. Thank you for being my friend and fellow blogger, Dwain!
