Blogging Insights returns today after a month’s hiatus. I posted almost daily for theA to Z Blogging Challenge 2022 last month and couldn’t keep up with my prompts. So here goes :
“I believe the term “blog” means more than an online journal. I believe a blog is a conversation. People go to blogs to read AND write, not just consume.” – Michael Arrington, TechCrunch
I completely agree with this quote and I would like to elaborate why and how. Some twenty five to thirty years ago I used to write a weekly column for the Tuesday magazine of a prestigious national newspaper. Although I was over the moon to be given this opportunity, I used to wonder if anyone other than my mother read my work.
In 2018, when I discovered blogging I was thrilled to find evidence that people were actually reading my posts and commenting on them. The comments section is my favourite part of my blog.
Sometimes a comment sparks off a whole new discussion. Taking part in that thread can be more enjoyable than reading or writing the post itself. I could go on and on forever about how much I love the interactive aspect of blogging.
What do you think? I would love to know. You can drop me a line in my comments section or write your own post
