Blogging 101: Zero to Hero (Day 4 – Say “Hi!” to the Neighbours)

Blogging 101: Zero to Hero.

Blogging 101: Zero to Hero.

Today’s Blogging 101 challenge is telling me that “blogging is a communal experience” and I need to begin engaging with the blogging community.

My assignment – follow five new topics in the Reader and five new blogs.

I have already made a start on this and would like to link up to the blogs I am enjoying following at the moment. The topics I’m following are below too.

Blogs I Follow:

  1. Tara over at After The Rain. I use to work with Tara and I was delighted to discover she had a blog; she’s a very talented writer. In her own words her blog is about: “[Family] life together as well as some of the issues that are important to me, including pregnancy loss, couch to 5k running and living more sustainably.”
  2. Jen over at Jen’s Pen Den. I met this lovely lady through this year’s NYC Midnight Flash Fiction Challenge. My favourite part of her blog is her editing tips. They are definitely worth a read if you want to better yourself as a writer.
  3. Laura Gabrielle Feasey over at I Smith Words. It’s actually her Literary Lion flash fiction challenge which has me hooked.
  4. The Mom Who Runs. This is another NYC Midnight buddy who has inspired me. I believed she’s just had another baby and is still writing and blogging away.
  5. This one I’ve added just now – The Daily Post. Well who else do I thank for getting me into Blogging 101?

Topics I’m Following:

  1. Books
  2. Reading
  3. Writing
  4. Blogging
  5. Motherhood

Thanks for reading folks.

Any suggestions of topics and/or blogs to follow please comment to let me know.

  6. A friend of mine SJ O’Hart is a soon to be published writer and her blog is worth a look I think. Quirky with a great sense of humour.
