As an aspiring writer, I started blogging to network and promote my poetry and short stories. This networking has introduced me to many wonderfully talented bloggers. At this point, I am not sure if I am an aspiring writer or blogger.
Blogging is very much like writing a column for a newspaper. You pick up readers who like what you blog and these readers will begin to look forward to your blog each day. When you blog, wherever you are, you reach around the globe.
Some bloggers have quite a following, others, by comparison have only a few readers. Effect rather than numbers should measure your success as a blogger. If only one reader is following your blog and looks forward to it every day, then you are a successful blogger.
If you are blogging and not certain if anyone is reading what you write, take assurance that they are. Some readers are quiet and leave no footprints. If you wake one morning and do not feel like blogging, remember, someone is looking forward to reading your column for that day.
Blogging is an awesome possibility and responsibility.
