Recently Timethief, author of One Cool Site, gave me the chance to guest post on her blog. The post is called ‘Synergy- the human side of blogging.’ For new bloggers, a guest post like this is a milestone, an honor just to be asked. For me, this experience was rewarding on many levels. It was the first time I wrote extensively about a subject that was more generic than technical. The call to action involved readers taking the analysis and making it personal. It was the first time one of my posts received so many reader comments and Stumble Upon reviews. It also generated backlinks. Of course the fact that it was on One Cool Site didn’t hurt!
I won’t repeat the post, but here are some of the SU reviews — an incentive for you to pop over there and read the article:
timethief– Explore your motives for blogging and learn something about yourself and your readers because, in essence, the blogger and the readers are co-creators.
simplyhealthy – Great thought provoking article on figuring the “why” out in your blogging to be a better & more fulfilled blogger.
thriftsromantic– By knowing why you blog, you empower yourself to find the right audience for you. Tips and tricks toward promotion, and understanding motivations.
womanistmusings – …This post really made me think about why I do the hard work that I do to maintain my blog and the best way to get my message across to others.
Please take a few minutes to read the post. You’ll find the reader comments are a perfect example of an open exchange! On the whole, I’d like my posts here to generate that type of interaction. Since I’m writing to help other bloggers, if there are comments, requests, shoutouts or backlinks I’m more motivated — I do enjoy posting but have other commitments. What do you think about this topic?
