Two tips I always advise when someone asks about starting a blog
- Read lots of blogs
- Comment often and well
Before even considering setting up a blog I think you should do those things, and when you have started blogging you should do them even more.
I imagine most of you already do read blogs. Perhaps more than you can cope with. Feeds are usually not a problem.
You see, I don’t think bloggers comment enough.
Please try this. For the next week make an effort to comment on more blogs. Each day post more comments than the last, on more blogs. Comment well, not just “ditto”. Add something of value, your own thoughts.
After a week see if you can tell the difference.
You might be surprised.
