There are moments in a blogger’s life when one gets reflective of their achievements in blogging as well as their future goals and aspirations for it. As I’ve mentioned in my profile, I have been blogging since the year 2005 and how different was blogging then! Anyway, here are some of the things which I’ve learned from blogging from the serious to the most unbelievable ones. 😀
a. Blogging is a serious profession – I admit, one of the reasons why I blogged before was just for me to express myself and have my “personal journal” published online. Of course, those reasons have evolved mainly because of the success in niche blogging. Though I don’t have a personal blog of my own, I realize that having a personal journal would be more suitable to my secrets. 🙂
b. WordPress, Blogger, Plug-ins and all that jazz – I never considered myself as a web programmer/developer but thanks to blogging, I know the basics in improving my own blog. Of course, complicated things could leave me spacing out for 1 hour straight but I could say that I have improved as compared to before. Can you say the same as your skills in this?
c. Spam means good – As I have mentioned before, receiving spam means only one good thing-you have traffic (albeit small). There is also a downside to it-100 comments are spam while your legitimate comment numbers only to one. If you find yourself in this position then its time to re-evaluate.
d. Blogging means community – As opposed to the notion that bloggers are geeks which lives in their own bubble, bloggers are very friendly and community-inclined. They always participate in discussions and forums and they are also the most honest persons I know especially for those who view blogging in a professional level. Interaction is the key to success in blogging and I am happy to say that most blogger do practice this.
Well, these are just some of things which I wanted to share with you fellow bloggers. Care to share as well? 😉
