“The first step in blogging is not writing them but reading them.“~Jeff Jarvis
If only someone had told me this way back in 2017 when I first thought of blogging . Back then, I wasted a lot of time watching YouTube videos on how to blog. Only some of these videos were any good. The majority were a waste of time and a few were even misleading.
Had I spent all that time reading posts on other blogs and leaving comments on them, the benefits would have been two fold. I would have learned the craft first hand and also built up a community of bloggers if I interacted regularly on the same blogs.
If I were to give blogging advice to a new comer this is what it would be :
Read as many blog posts as you can especially in your chosen niche or genre (if you have chosen one). If you haven’t thought of a niche then just read whatever posts appeal to you. As I love to repeat ad nauseum,
“The best school for blogging is other blogs.”
What do you think? I would love to know.
You can leave a reply in my comments section.
Better still, why not write a post of your own? Just remember to tag it #blogginginsights
