How To Be A Better Blogger

Here is a thought.

Ever just started reading, commenting and developing relationships with blogs and bloggers outside the ones that you normally go through everyday? The world is a much bigger place than our small area of wonderland, the advent of good things come in the variation beyond the norm. Without exploring what’s out there, you can’t really explore the boundaries of your own creativity and imagination.

So with that, for anyone who bothers. Here’s a challenge. Find 10 blogs beyond your local blogosphere or the usual read blogs that you like. It doesn’t have to be that of the same genre, it just has to be something you can find yourself addicted to that is outside your usual scope. Having said that, comment and interact with the bloggers from those blogs then develop relationships with them instead of being the silent type.

The point here is really to expand your horizon. To understand that what’s good out there isn’t necessarily what you already found. You can’t possibly be that small minded about a world so diverse with perspectives, beauty and horror. Good blogging isn’t about giving people the incentive to come up with original ideas. It’s about what people experience in the world and put together when they want to.

So that being said, what are you waiting for? Get out there, find the blogs that you don’t really know and find the ones that you can be addicted to. You just might be pleasantly surprised. It may change you more than you think.

  1. Good tip and worthwhile following. And do the same with newspapers/ magazines, people, books etc. How greatly enriched will you become if you do this?

  2. It’s all good if you have the time. These days I can barely keep up on my 2 blogs and replying to comments let alone discovering new ones!

  3. Andreas: Unfortunately, I don’t have as much time on books or rather hardcover information save for what pertains to what I do. People works for me though. Nothing like getting to know someone new every once in a while. You never know who they might turn out to be. 🙂

    ChickyBabe: Yeah but as it is, I doubt that you have any problems in discoring something new from all of us every once in awhile. You do get around you know that right?

  4. Actually Collin, I have been following Lorelle’s Blogging Challenge, but I haven’t been at it of late because of things in my life. I’ve taken the liberty to put it all under one catergory found here.

    As for my comment preview. I can’t seem to get it to work though. I think it’s comflicting with some other WordPress plugins. Thanks for noticing, I’ll try and fiz it as soon as I can. 🙂
