“A blog is only as interesting as the interest shown in others”
I think that this is true. This quote can be interpreted in two ways;
People who follow a blog, read and comment on their writing invite the blogger to visit their blog with their actions. It happened to me too. When I started to blog, I followed many bloggers. I visited their blogs, left comments on their posts by reading them and not just liking them. This resulted in those people visiting my blog. That’s how I built my blog’s readership and community.
The second way I see this quote as being relevant is that interesting content attracts people to read and follow the blog. Not everything is interesting to everyone because we all have different preferences. So what I find interesting, I’ll follow. And what others find absorbing, they’ll follow.
In my opinion, blogging is all about building your community, especially here on WordPress. On other platforms, a blog can exist without a community but here we thrive on our WP community.
Many thanks Dr Tanya for continuing this discussion on blogging.
