Did you … read other blogs before creating your own?
Oh yes! I read lots of other blogs before I finally launched my own.
The best school for bloggers is other blogs. There are some blogs that deal only with the art of blogging, Most blogs carry a few posts on Blogging tips.
In the beginning, I enrolled in a free email course on blogging but did not find it very useful. It was much more useful reading other people’s posts.
Once I had plucked up the courage to launch my blog, I began interacting with other bloggers. This interaction, by making comments and receiving replies, was how I really cut my blogging teeth.
Veteran bloggers were very helpful and supportive. They made encouraging comments on my fledgling posts and answered my queries. So I take this post as an opportunity to thank them once again.
