I was reading OM’s post on his Harsh Reality blog about new/fellow bloggers and it inspired me. I am relatively new to blogging and I still have a lot to learn. I love receiving notifications telling me that someone has liked or commented on one of my posts but I have since realised that I have not been making enough effort to appreciate other people’s work. I do follow people and I do skim through my reader but I think I should have been paying more attention. I have not been reading as much as I should have, perhaps wasting my time looking at captioned pictures of cats on Facebook or pictures of what people eat for their dinner instead of reading carefully crafted blog posts by like-minded people.
I mentioned that I still have a lot to learn. What better way to learn than from my fellow bloggers? Wordpress is a community, after all, and I’m sure we can all learn from each other. Today is the day I use it properly. Today is the day I learn to read and appreciate the words that you have all taken the time to write. No more selfish blogging!
