Sharing the blogging love

I've finally subscribed to Blogosphere Magazine and I couldn't be more thrilled! I received my first magazine in the post this week and whilst I was reading it, one thing instantly struck me - the support and love shown for bloggers everywhere. Blogosphere Magazine highlights all the wonderful qualities of bloggers. It gives me a great chance to look at other blogger's content and share their posts through my social media channels.

When I first started blogging, my biggest fear was that nobody was going to read or comment on my content. I wouldn't be surprised if all bloggers felt the same when they first entered blogger-verse.

After the first few posts, I started to think if all the effort was really worth it. I didn’t think anybody was reading my posts, I was ready to delete my website and carry on my normal (relatively normal) everyday life.

One lesson I have certainly learnt from blogging is that just because you don’t get tonnes of wonderful comments or hundreds of likes for a particular post, it doesn’t mean you’re a bad writer.

I don’t get loads of compliments for my content, but if I’m happy with it, then that’s all that matters to me.
But I don’t expect praise for every post I do, but when I do get a lovely notification telling me that I've received a comment, then it only seems fair and right that I give praise back on one of their posts, or at least reply to the comment they've taken the time to type to me.

One of my secret goals this year blogging-wise was to comment on the blogs I have enjoyed reading and more importantly, related to. I think it’s essential to let other bloggers know that their work is amazeballs and that they’ve done a great job, especially for the newbie bloggers. It really does give me that boost in confidence that I'm going on the right path, so I can't imagine how much of a confidence boost it must give newbie bloggers on the block. Speaking from my own experience, I know it does.
It takes barely five seconds to give a compliment to someone by telling them verbally face to face, so what excuse do we have not to type a quick compliment on someone’s blog post? You could make someone's day, it's worth it, surely?
