The Read – and Repost
Ever read a blog you love and get ideas from the post you’ve read. I do and all the time. Sometimes you have things to add to the post, your own thoughts or ideas. That is what is so great about having your own platform. Here you can do the post how you want, say what they didn’t, and shed light using your own opinion on the topic being discussed. To be nice – reference the other blogger and really get the conversation started.
No matter what you blog about, be true to who you are. And remember you blog for you. It’s not always about comments or numbers but the quality of what you are writing and those you are sharing it with. Happy Blogging!
