I am reading a fantastic book called ‘The Art of Shouting Quietly’ by Pete Mosley. It’s a guide about self-promotion for us quieter creatives, and all about understanding ourselves and how to use our fabulous qualities in a positive way. I will be writing a review for the book soon, but wanted to share this thought with you today as I think it goes hand-in-hand with what makes an amazing blogger.
It’s true, there are some very talented bloggers here.
Some with super slick writing that leaps off the page demanding to be read, storytellers who pull you in, rhymers who lift spirits and those in the know who can help you out of any fix. They are everywhere you turn, making extraordinary things happen. But what separates the success of these wordsmiths is something quite basic.
If I look at all the successful bloggers I have made connections with during my relatively short time blogging, all of them are hearty sharers. From the established queen bees to newbies, you will find them actively commenting on and sharing posts which may have helped and inspired them, made them think ‘I am totally there with you’ or perhaps just made them giggle.
If you look even closer, you will find that these bloggers are all somehow linked together as blogging pals and linky buddies. All using their networking skills to connect to like minded sharers and supporting each other on their onward and upward journeys… together. In turn, increasing their followers and viewers whilst quietly storming the web as major influencers.
So, be an amazing blogger and share posts that have meant something to you and don’t forget to connect to fellow bloggers by commenting on their writing.
Put good stuff out there,
good stuff tends to come back,
measure for measure.
The Art of Shouting Quietly, Pete Mosley
