31 Days to Build a Better Blog: Meet Me at the Mother Ship
It is Day 9 and if I had a ray gun, I might evaporate this... oh, never mind. Are you getting tired of posting every day? I sure am. :)
Now, while you're feeling this fatigue, is the best time for me to talk to you about joining forces with other people.
ProBlogger (and he is right, again), says that being part of a chatty group helps with:
1. Profile Building (your personal popularity, as measured by being recognized)
2. Driving Traffic (your personal popularity, as measured by stats)
3. Understanding Your Niche (your personal popularity, as compared to other people who you pretend you're not trying to out-blog)
I have recommended being part of a group for some of the same reasons, albeit without the popularity emphasis. But one of my favorite reasons for being part of an awesome group is that it takes the pressure off you to be funny or insightful all the time.
You can let Glynn be insightful, Katdish be funny, Marcus be poetical, and Billy be poignant (when he's not being funny). And, like sitting at the cool cafeteria table when you were in 6th grade, you can just be identified with these people, which is, in my opinion, very nice.
(Another symptom of 31 Day Fatigue Syndrome is the inability to speak in a vocabulary exceeding the 3rd grade. You will find yourself using words like "nice" and "fun," with increasing regularity.)
All righty, back to the Mother Ship— otherwise known as a great chat place, otherwise known as a really cool cafeteria table (in nicer ways than the 6th grade): you might like to join us, at HighCallingBlogs. :)
