This is personal. It is a concept I developed lately to become a better blogger. I call it “My 5 ABCs for Better Blogging Challenge”, since I made this for myself. Why would I do such a thing, you ask?
I do it because I re-visited some of my old blog posts from a few years ago and realized I had missed many opportunities to interact more meaningfully with visitors to my blog. There were many things I could have done differently that would have made me more engaging as a blogger.
Thinking about the missed many opportunities made me realize I could do a whole lot better as a blogger. So I decided to change the way I do things as I blog, blog, blog here on Blogger.
Following is my list of things to do and ways to interact to become a better blogger.
Things to do to become a better blogger:
A – Always reply to comments on posts. Remember that people took their valuable time to visit your blog and to read your post, and even more of their time to leave a comment.
B – Be kind, Be courteous, Be supportive. If you (I) don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything. .. just click away.
C – Carefully craft your comments to the topic of a post. Don’t just throw out some meaningless gibberish, it’s insulting.
D – Do unto other Bloggers what you want done unto you. This is self explanatory, needs no further messing with.
E – Each time you visit a post, read it before commenting. It can make or break your credibility if your comment is unrelated to the topic.
That’s it, my personal challenge to myself to improve the quality of my Blogging experience and also the experience of those that I interact with. Do you have any ideas for better blogging? Add them in the comments section. This is a way we can help each other.
