“Seasoned bloggers aren’t always the friendliest group of people. And let me just say, I found out the hard way”

I love exploring the blogger community within WordPress and beyond. A key component to being a good writer is to read as much as you write. I also believe inspiration can be drawn from anywhere. I’ve followed five new blogs as instructed in today’s Zero to Hero challenge. I connect with these readers and I invite others to read and possibly connect with them as well.

WordPress News (for obvious reasons)

These are all great blogs to read, no matter if it’s a new or seasoned blog, it’s worthy of a read and a follow in my book.

One of the things I remember when I first started blogging is that, fellow bloggers weren’t as friendly to me as I thought they should be. Seasoned bloggers aren’t always the friendliest group of people and I found out the hard way. I would comment on post and ask questions and never get a response. I would follow other blogs genuinely interested in them. Not only weren’t they following my blog, but I doubt they even checked it out.  I was so lost and asking advice and certain individuals just weren’t willing. Following my blog is not a requirement, but atleast be kind and thoughtful enough to answer a question or reply back with something. I am so thankful for the few bloggers that embraced me and really showed me love, advice and encouragement during that time. I would also like to include a link to those bloggers below as they were instrumental in my blogging experience.

Be sure to check out the blogs mentioned and any others you may find on your blogging journey. I have a nice neighborhood now, and it’s growing into a pretty good community.

Peace and love,
Dee

    Lovely, so nice to focus on the positive!

  2. I agree about the bloggers not being the friendliest group. They are also cliquish. I became discouraged for a time. however with this new challenge & new year, I’m refocused. Leaving comments on blogs that I find interesting or agree with or have something to say. I’m glad that you didn’t give up on blogging. Good luck with the rest of the zero to hero challenge.

    • Yes, the cliques are real. I’m just not that type. I read a wide range of blogs. Entertainment, lifestyle, fashion, poetry, the list goes on and on. I am glad i stuck it out too, and thanks for checking out my blog 🙂
