Make the most of your blog

One of the best ways to make the most of your blog is to read the blogs of others and comment on what they have to say. For a long time, I wrote my blog in isolation. This was back before Twitter and Facebook. Yep, I wrote and waited. And, no one visited my blog and no one commented.

I persevered, and then I ventured out to some other blogs and found that reading them fired me up to write more and share more. I started commenting on their blogs and found that commenting (participating) helped me remember the advice from those blogs.

Then I decided to try Twitter and the world opened up for me -- so much so that I wrote a book on how to get up and going on Twitter. Some people use Twitter just to market their book (or whatever product they have), but in addition to a place to mention a product, it's

  • a great place to find help on a fact you can't nail down
  • a great place to just throw a favorite quote to the wind and see who likes it as well
  • a great place to ask others for do-it-yourself help
  • a great place to tell others what's on your mind and see who might have a comment
  • a great place to chat with others when you're happy, sad, enthused...
Facebook also serves a similar purpose. For those writers who work alone at the computer. Get out there into cyberspace and talk to others about your projects. I guarantee it'll make a positive difference in your writing.

Love this post. Feedback from other blogs means a great deal to me. That helps to inspire and motive me in doing a blog. A year ago I would have said 'no way' I'd ever blog, now I love it. It's been so much fun and I've got to 'meet' so many wonderful new friends like you.

Laughed when you said you wrote your blog in isolation. And many people who receive comments in answer to their posts never reciprocate, very odd. :0)
