Did you … read other blogs before creating your own?
Yesterday in Ursula’s [An Upturned Soul] Post she made reference to something which l found somewhat interesting, hence today’s question…
“””Long before I started blogging, I spent a lot of time reading, exploring, discovering and immersing myself in blogs.
I had certain favourites which I regularly visited. I thought what they did was amazing, interesting, fascinating.”””
Now l found this interesting for a couple of reasons, 1] Suze has been thinking of creating a bog [ for the past year] but as of yet done nothing about it and doesn’t read mine or any other blogs, and 2] before l started blogging l never read any blogs at all. Not really. I was a guest writer on a gamer’s blog, but l didn’t even read that. I simply came in wrote my piece and then went out again. But l never specifically read any blogs prior to starting a blog myself.
I started a blog because someone recommended that l should and l thought why not? In my eyes l am still a newb at 16 months, and still learn lots every week, l have made quite a few learning curve blunders along the way, upset a couple of bloggers and well that’s what life’s all about, one big baby step after another.
But back to the question, when you started blogging for the first time, did you simply jump in with both feet or research blogging first? Plus what made you decide to take the leap of faith? There are other formats out there to write your journey, why a blog?
Let me know.
