I have been blogging since July 2008 and enjoy it very much; even though there are times my “blogger batteries” start to discharge. It is truly hard work; however, I look at it as a form of exercise in the mental sense (similar to a daily physical workout).
The rewards from blogging are many… You keep those brain cells refreshed, your writing improves, recognition will come your way, your knowledgebase expands, you develop a sense that you are doing something that will help someone else; AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY you meet people that I can only describe as being awesome.
I do not know how it is with other people that blog on other topics of interest; BUT, what I have found with Tech Bloggers it that it is a very unique group of people. That old saying “birds of a feather flock together” describes perfectly the group of bloggers I have been associated with.
When a fellow Tech Blogger gives you recognition, I have a blogger’s policy that I follow, and that is to “pay it back, twofold”. Recently one of the blogs I am associated with, called “Ask A Tech Teacher” posted text from one of my articles and and a link back to What’s On My PC. Many bloggers look at link backs as a way to generate traffic to the blog (which it is); but, I look at it in a whole different light. I made a connection with someone!
I started digging deep into the blog, Ask A Tech Teacher, and what I experienced was a vast amount (and array) of information that can really help those that are in need of a real teacher of computers and information technology. The author of the blog has been been a tech teacher for 15 years and it really shows. To all my readers and new visitors, Ask A Tech Teacher is one site to bookmark and frequently visit. I will guarantee you that you will learn something that you did not know.
Oh, by the way, if you are interested in becoming a blogger, I encourage you to use WordPress.com… Everything you need to get started is there and you do not need to be a rocket scientist to figure it out; plus, there is always someone out there that will help.
