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.
