Day Three: Say Hello to the Neighbors
Blogging is a communal experience; if you didn’t want anyone to read your posts, you’d keep a private diary. Today, begin engaging with the blogging community, the first step in building an audience.
Today’s assignment: follow five new topics in the Reader and five new blogs.
Why spend time reading other blogs?
- Publishing posts is only half of blogging — engaging with the community is the other.
- Considering what other bloggers write will inspire you and sharpen your thoughts.
Today I managed to figure out the reader and found 5 new blogs to follow. Much better than the first time I tried this.
