I’m enjoying my Blogging University class but am finding it a bit tricky to ‘make time’ for homework!
Late last week, we were instructed to add some blogs to our Readers. A Reader is the tool at WordPress.com that, well, lets you read your favorite blogs. You can find and read popular blogs, blogs by category or search for something in particular. It’s a great way to organize your ‘library’ and you can even add blogs not hosted at WordPress.com. So that’s nice.
I went to our private discussion-blog (for our BU class) and found some interesting blogs to follow. It’ll be fun to learn together and see how their blogs develop. Reading other peoples’ blogs will also give me inspiration and is a great way to get connected with the community. After all, blogging isn’t just about writing, it’s about communicating and that’s always a two-way street.
Michelle W., one of Blogging University’s instructors has a post about Blogging Communities. Check it out. And if you’re looking for a particular niche, do a quick search in Google; you’ll find it! Search “nutrition blog” — you’ll find the Nutrition Blog Network. Search “candy blog” and you’ll find a long list of blogs that are about, um, candy! Try it, but make sure you have time on your hands, it’s a tangled web out there! Happy Reading, Happy Blogging!
