Why You Should Be an Active Blogger
Posted on 16. May, 2010 by Julius.
I haven’t been so active recently. This has several reasons. First of all I am focusing on building up my mini sites. But at the same time I am also having problems with the Internet. I haven’t had Internet for 5 days straight. It’s annoying but it will get better soon since I am going to move to a new place.
There are still several things that I have learned from this: You need to be an active blogger.
Why Be Active?
There is almost nothing more important than being active. As I’ve mentioned above I haven’t really been active. But it is essential to be. Why?
The reason is simple. First of all you build up relationships with other people if you are active on the Internet and once you stop, it’s hard to get back to doing it. Another reason is that when I am active in the blogosphere then I get a lot more traffic and a lot more comments.
Take a look at James’ and Hesham’s blog. They are both very active bloggers and thus get tons of traffic and comments. You can of course also grow your web site by being rather passive but it will take a lot longer.
Reach Out to People
Being an active blogger also means reaching out to other people. You can’t really be active without building relationships with other bloggers. It’s all about helping other people.
You can’t expect other people to drop a comment on your blog if you are not willing to drop one on theirs. It’s about giving. If you simply focus on that then you will get lots in return.
It’s About Action
Active bloggers are also the ones who quickly take action. They might succeed, they might fail but most importantly they keep on going. There are lots of people around us that say that they will take action. They say that they will do this and that. But they never do.
I have to admit that I am like that. I have told people that I would do some things but I never got around to doing them in the first place. I don’t necessary think that it’s such a bad attitude as long as you take action for the things that matter most to you.
People may doubt what you say
but they will believe what you do.
In the end it’s about taking action and doing the things that matter most to you.
What do you think? Are you an active blogger?
