New to Blogging? Don’t Worry About What We Think!
While trolling the blogroll at ActiveRain to find interesting posts to feature in my Sunday series, I’ve noticed many new bloggers in the community. Love it!!!
Every community needs an infusion of “new” to keep it alive.
And if you’re like many of us were when we began blogging, the hardest thing is finding your voice.
Market reports and listings aside, offering posts that let your reader learn more about you helps to build a readership who will relate to you and want to read more from you.
Here are a few tips for your blogging journey…
Don’t worry about what we think.
There are many who have already reached the I don’t care what they think level but for the most part, we’re all human and we DO care about what others think about what we write.
However, if you let what we might think color what you say, we may never get to know who you really are.
By the way...the members here are honest and at the same time, kind (for the most part.) There is always someone who will tell you what they think of your post.
DO worry if…
You are not following the ActiveRain Community Guidelines.
What you write could be considered libelous.
What you write is not yours
What you write about could hurt your business.
If you write something and someone sees a different point of view….that’s ok. Remember… it’s YOUR blog. We may politely tell you that we disagree, or we may just stop by to say “hello.” But in any event, go ahead…. don’t worry about what we think of what you write.. we’ll tell you in some form or fashion!
That’s the beauty of ActiveRain.
