Blogging- A means to connect

Dr Tanya has resumed her Blogging Insight series after the hiatus

Blogging Insights returns today after a month’s hiatus. I posted almost daily for theA to Z Blogging Challenge 2022 last month and couldn’t keep up with my prompts. So here goes :


“I believe the term “blog” means more than an online journal. I believe a blog is a conversation. People go to blogs to read AND write, not just consume.” – Michael Arrington, TechCrunch


I agree with this quote 100%. The only thing I’d add more is that blogging is not only a means to write and read but also to connect.

One person writes a blog post which is read by many others. This completes the stated purpose of this quote, but what comes after is the real joy of blogging: The connections formed with others in the community.

For myself, this connection is the reason I blog. When I write something, be it a story, an informative post, or a poem, I get instant feedback on it. I get to know what people think of my effort and this gives me a chance to improve on my writing skill. In fact, this has actually helped me to write better, to improve my grammar and by reading the posts/ poems of my fellow bloggers, I’ve learned a lot about writing better.

Thank you Dr.Tanya for restarting Blogging insight series again.

  1. I absolutely agree about the connections being important in blogging. My first few years of blogging I just wrote and didn’t engage with other bloggers. It is so much more rewarding now that I do.

  2. I agree with you Sadje..its the connection that comes after each post we made…we are so blessed to have a wonderful community of writers and bloggers here in WP who are very supportive and generous of their expertise …

  3. This quote reminds me of someone I watch on YouTube occasionally. He discusses current events in the news and often says this is a conversation and encourages his viewers to share their opinions in the comments. The reader of a blog is also part of a conversation. No other form of writing has as much feedback, as quickly. GREAT quote!
