How do you think a blogger can inspire others in the blogosphere?
I think the best inspiration is commenting on someone’s post, whether it is to talk about the subject of the post or the way it is written. When one gets a comment it gives you more inspiration to do it again. It is hard to keep the enthusiasm when you write and the feel like no one is looking at your work. That is what blogging is for, right? Showcasing interests and talents, connecting with others through common hobbies or goals?
I don’t think it is necessary to “like” everything you read but it is important to let the bloggers know that you are reading their work. Something made it catch your eye. You don’t have to say that you love it, you can comment on the topic in common or about an experience you had that they may be familiar with.
I think blogging is about connecting with others. If it wasn’t we would all walk around with a pad of paper or Word documents on the computer. People like to share the things they feel they did well. Acknowledging the effort is such an uplifting gesture!
