3 Things That the Blogging Community Needs to Leave in 2018

Hey friends,

This will be short and to the point, but these are things that the blogging community – specifically book blogging – need to stop doing.

Making blogging a “competition”

  • This is a hobby for many of us. Hobbies are meant to be fun, not stressful.

Begging for likes and follows

  • If this is all that you care about then you should delete your blog. Yes we put a lot of time into our blogs and the recognition is nice. But you have to earn my follow. Engage, start a conversation. You can absolutely do that by commenting on other blogs, but if all you have to say is “follow my blog” then don’t bother. And honestly, it’s rude. Don’t tell other people to follow/read your blog if you won’t do it for them.

Forcing each other to believe that someone else’s success = their failure

  • Seriously, this needs to stop and it is directly tied to the previous point. So what if that other blogger has 10, 100, or 100,000 more followers than you? You have more followers than someone else too. Let it go. Focus on you. Stop comparing each other. We are a community, not competitors.

Happy New Year

  2. Visual displays becomes ineffective if see using the same
    ideas over and also over. Admittedly, these things have numerous uses.
    You could can both pick a habit repair or enable it to be a family effort. http://www.marketbeat.com/URL/?url=http://cuci.today/

  5. Totally agree–people have different writing styles, blog about different things, and are getting discovered on the grapevine through random weirdness every day. No need to be crazy about competition and whatnot!
