After celebrating my second year of blogging, I thought more about why this particular realm of social media is important to me. I know I have said it here and here and here that the connection I have with fellow bloggers has encouraged me to continue my writing journey.
After I warmed up to blogging, I decided I wanted to create a place where writers can come and share their thoughts, dreams, and fears in a supportive atmosphere. So far, I think I have managed that. I love the conversations we strike up, the encouragement passed back and forth, and the overall camaraderie. That’s what writers need in order to thrive. We may prefer to write alone, but we need to vent and cheer with friends. These thoughts led me to an idea.
Go Ahead, Make a Blogger’s Day.
Comment below with a link to a post from someone else’s blog. Briefly explain why this particular post struck a chord with you, or even, made your day.
Then, take the opportunity to click on a link or two shared by fellow bloggers and read a post you might not have seen otherwise. I encourage you to comment on the post, let the blogger know someone thought their post was meaningful enough to share with friends.
Just a few rules:
- Only link to someone else’s post, not your own.
- Only link to G-rated or PG-rated posts, please.
- Visit at least one post listed in the comment section and leave the blogger a comment. Remember, the idea is to make a blogger’s day – bloggers love comments!
- Spammers? Go ahead, make my day.
