On of the blogs I’ve been following, recently, posted an invitation for readers to: Share & Promote Their Blogs. Actually, the post published in May, but I just came across it today…
My first thought was, “This is a brilliant idea!” I spent the next hour looking through, and liking, many of the comments. I loved reading the responses which (90%) began with a sincere “thank you”, or some other expression of gratitude, towards Dr. Eric Perry for offering to share their information. What was most impressive was the sheer breadth of topics that are covered by his readers. The subject matter spanned from travel and photography to poetry and self-help.
I’m generally able to read at least 6-12 articles a week from sites I haven’t visited before. Sometimes, I go to the WordPress reader, type a phrase into the search bar, then visit whatever posts pop up first. In part, I do this to get a sense of others’ writing styles. It’s also a great way to read about topics I might not seek out. Every time I do this, I learn something new, gain insights, feel respect and admiration for my fellow bloggers, and find inspiration for my own writing.
Realizing that not all of my readers have a blog (although I suspect many do), I wanted to expand the original concept to include non-writing projects. So, without further delay…
My Invitation for You!
