Jeremy’s Guide to a Better Blog

Jeremy from Till He Comes wrote a guest blog for ProBlogger about how to create a better blog.  His basic tip for bloggers was this: If you want to blog better, you need to read more blogs.

But Jeremy breaks down the art of reading blogs into five helpful ways that reading more blogs will help your blog.  You can check them out specifically at his post, but his basic points are these:

1. Read your own blog.

2. Read your readers’ blogs

3. Comment on other peoples’ blogs

4. Repost excerpts from the blogs of others

5. Repost the comments of others.

Some of the tips I follow, some I don’t. I actually read incorrectly “Read your reader’s blogs” and thought Jeremy meant we should read the blogs our readers read.  He actually meant read the blogs your readers write.  But this got me thinking two things: “How many of my readers blog?” & “What other blogs are my readers reading?”

So today is your day.  If you blog, jump to the comment section, tell us about your blog and a little about what you write about.  Or, jump to the comment section and tell all the rest of us what blogs you read, even if it’s just your favorite blog.  Maybe we can all learn a little bit from each other.

    I think interaction with readers is the lifeblood of writers. If we are not connected to our readers, interacting with them. Our ideas and insight dry up. This is so what I need to do. So I will take the advice and comment on this blog.
