Bloggers, Are You Reading Enough Blogs?

If you're not reading the blogs of others, you may be missing out on inspiration, education, and entertainment! Some of the most successful bloggers are avid blog readers, and find that they are more in touch with what's going on in the blogging world. Most bloggers who have popular blogs read more than they write. Connecting with other bloggers can be a great way of getting feedback on your ideas, sort of testing the waters. You may even discover some very important trial and error lessons learned by others, saving you time on making mistakes that have already been explored.

By reading other people's blogs, you are exposed to what is popular at the moment. You learn what people are doing. You can see what subjects are most read about, most talked about, and creating the most buzz. You have the opportunity to network with other bloggers, and create business relationships that are essential to driving traffic towards your blog. You begin to see your blog through the eyes of others. Sometimes bloggers write from a journalistic point of view, and some write take a more personal approach. The point is to learn what works for you, and many times, the very thing you hold back on could be the key to your success.

  1. Yours is one of the blogs that I checked out today. I read blogs in my niche of spiritual growth but I also check out blogs about blogging to learn what I need to be doing to build my blog and make it more attractive to readers. Thanks for your advice.
