Another two months and the year will have summarily come to an end! Its certainly a time for reflection on whether you have accomplished your beginning of year resolutions and goals and determine what you need to do to ensure you accomplish the remaining ones.
It has been a busy week on all fronts, traveling, learning tonnes at Fincon13, and meeting amazing bloggers. There is a lot that goes into blogging, and while writing is the main thing, it doesn’t even begin to cover the blogging spectrum.
You will also have to deal with promotion, social media engagement, seo and marketing for your blog. It can get overwhelming fast unless you set up systems earlier on on how to deal with the deluge of work.
Being a Blogger
One thing though, its fun being a blogger. You learn a lot, meet and engage with amazing people from diverse backgrounds and perform your share of “changing the world” for the better. At day’s end, you are happy you have touched, educated or entertained your readers and impacted their lives significantly.
Lessons on Blogging
A key lesson I’ll be taking from Fincon13: Give, Give, Give without expectation of ever getting back. Promote others, share their content, feature them on your blog, collaborate with them and share your tricks. You won’t get a thing in return in the short run, but in the long run, you will have earned credibility, respect, and that open doors to far bigger opportunities.
