Share Your Best Blogging Tips

Hello Everyone,

It has been 6 wonderful years here on wordpress and I would not have had such a great journey without your support and encouragement…In lieu of this appreciation I would like to reach out to my fellow bloggers and ask you to share your best tips in blogging with the new bloggers out there…Please leave your tip or thoughts in the comment section and I will then go through them and compile a list in another post linking the blog address of the writers who share their tips. Comments will be open until March 15, 2020 so I hope you share what has worked for you in your journey. Please keep your tips professional and positive any rude or hateful comments will be removed.

I will start with one tip that has helped me…

Personally, I feel authenticity in connecting with fellow bloggers has really helped me grow. Reading the works of others and leaving a thoughtful comment goes a long way and makes the writer/photographer want to engage with your blog instead of simply stating ” Check out my blog” without any other comment. It is actually one of things that can turn someone off towards you, as it may come across as you having no interest in that person’s blog apart from marketing your own and that does not allow for an authentic connection. We all want our works to be read but we need to put an effort to connect and genuinely read someone else’s work instead of using it as a promotional tool…promotion will happen organically if the connection is made.

Authenticity in the Age of Social Media – Share your thoughts…

image copyright neha 2019

Hello Everyone,

I have recently come across multiple posts and videos that talk about “being your true authentic self” from celebrities and non celebrities alike. Although I believe in the sentiment, I find the term to be overused and often misrepresented by individuals simply trying to be part of a fad. “Speak your truth” and “be yourself” have become popular tags than authentic sentiments. I find it to be an irony and want to know what your thoughts are on the matter. Genuineness is such an appealing quality and something that I always look for in people…it has become harder to find under the veil of social media. Would love to hear you out in comments and perhaps compile a follow-up post with some of your thoughts on the matter. Please include your blog url to be considered. There is no deadline for participation yet, I will close comments once I feel we have reached a substantial number. Please be professional with your words, rude or hateful comments will be removed.

 

Thank you and hope to see you all participate in the discussion!

 

Happy Friday!
