YOU ARE INVITED!
Old School Blogging: Write because you love to write. Blog because you love to tell stories. I’ve been feeling a shift in the blogging/social media community and I think it’s pretty awesome.
Bloggers are so inundated by brands and PR pitches nowadays that we are craving to go back to the time when blogging was done just for the love of writing. Some of you may still need or want to monetize your blog and that’s absolutely fine but let’s not forget content and the quality of writing.
Let’s go back to the days when the blogging community was huge and supportive and the only means of communication with others on the internet, before Facebook and Twitter.
Use the hashtag #OSB when Tweeting your posts, which will encourage others to read and comment on the blog post, not on Twitter or Facebook. Using #OSB will also encourage bloggers to build upon this #OSB community.
Visit other blogs! Comment! Make a point of visiting at least two blogs a day and leaving two comments.
When: Starting now.
Won’t you join me?
