 Prompt: Give your one best piece of advice to new bloggers in the blogging world.

Blogging, such as anything you are learning that is new, is a process. Each time you write, each comment made on your blog, and each comment you make on another person’s blog, will build your strength as a writer and blogger. My best piece of advice for a new blogger is about the same advice you receive upon entering a first job or a new job: network, network, network! 

Make the effort to respond and get to know the people who are commenting on your posts. If you are followed by a person and you look at their blog and like it’s contents too, follow the person back. Read random blogs on WordPress to start finding other blogs which interest you and receive your favourite blogs sent to your email. Comment on and like the blogs you follow. Maybe you don’t have time to do this for every blogger you receive a blog from, but do it at least every few posts a blogger you like makes.The more blogs you can read, like, or comment on, the more people you can meet through blogging. Check-out blogs, bloggers you know, mention in their post. Look for bloggers who have commented a lot on blog posts you already enjoy reading. Reblog blogs that really touch your heart and/or you find meaningful. Remember to give constructive feedback when commenting.

Participating in writing challenges such as Flash fiction, six word stories, poetry challenges and WordPress courses, is also a fun way to meet people. Flash fiction for example, is a fantastic way to see how various people create a different story from the same words/picture. It is also an excellent way to learn how to write a story only using necessary words. Every word and sentence has to count when you only have two-hundred words to tell a story in. 

WordPress courses in writing, photography, and blogging are excellent in helping you improve the readership of your blog but also to make your blog appear more professional, and improve your writing skills. All WordPress courses are linked to a place all students in the course can go and share and read their own and other people’s work. It is a great way to meet people through these courses. More experienced bloggers/writers often have many pearls of wisdom to share. Best of Luck!
