The Need to Network


More than just a post, but for those of you who do read or check out my blog I have a question. The question I have for you is what ways have worked best for you to network with other people; especially other bloggers?


Be Yourself


Today I have the night off from my job. I’ve been reading many things new and old. And I have been reviewing my recent activities.

The activity that I have been looking over the most today has been my blog. I have been posting on a rather regular basis, but my results feel a bit dismal. This dismal performance has me a bit stressed, but after thinking about what I have been doing I came to realize that I wasn’t really providing any real value. There was nothing I was really putting in personally. My blog lacked spirit.

Initially when I started working more consistently on posting stuff on here I was working to make posting a habit. Of course, I had the bright idea that such activity would bring me better stats for my blog. That was a mistake on my part.

Doing what I did I feel is a good starting point to make something into a habit, but in that process I had forgotten the importance of giving value. A lot of things may not seem valuable to many, but the sheer fact of really sharing yourself with others is in itself a greater value than putting up something that is generic. I believe that this sharing is what makes blogging the great thing that it is today. So don’t be afraid to share your knowledge and personality with others, because that is the path that we as a society should be striving toward.

Will You Follow Me?


Today has been a great day for me; especially for my blog. I would love to first give thanks to Busymindthinking. With her help I had made an incredible record for both views and visitors. I also would like to thank those that decided to follow me after having my post reposted on her site. So the next thing that does come up is how do I get more followers, views, and visitors?

I know I’m still in my stages of development for this blog, but I am sure many of you including myself have had feelings of frustration or similar feelings when you login to check out how your blog is doing. This made me wonder how does one get so many people? I know there are certain topics that are hot as well as the idea of using search engine optimization to improve your flow of traffic, but at the same time I realized that even if I did do those things I am still competing with many others that are using that formula toward making a successful blog. So what now?

My main goal for this blog is to provide useful content that will be helpful to others. I also hope to monetize this blog so that I can focus on the content of this blog to provide greater service to all those whom decide to read and follow me. So for today I wanted to share with you all a couple of sites that I thought were good.

Both sites have a lot of interesting things to read and the links that I posted for those two sites talk about getting more followers. Thanks for reading and take care everyone.
