There are thousands of great blogs out there and some of them are hosted on Blogger. I am sure that it is a great format, but I was brought into the blogging world with WordPress and I’ve never strayed.
Visiting and commenting on other blogs is an important part of building my own website. They have told me that. All of the experts I have read say to network by commenting on other blogs. If it’s a Word press blog them I’m fine. Some Blogger blogs will even allow me to comment. But there are so many Blogger blogs out there that require me to have a blogger account and I don’t. It won’t let me comment without one.
Even my own sister in law requires it for me to visit the family website.
Communicating with other bloggers has to be easier than it is being made out to be. I shouldn’t have to jump through so many hoops. The worst part is that I usually don’t know about the hoops until I have already spent the time to write out my comment. It’s frustrating, aggravating and the only reason that I hate Blogger.
It is hard enough to build an online business with out running into these types of obstacles. If anyone out there can tell me how to circumvent the Blogger blog user requirements then I would be forever grateful.
For now, I will work on building my own readership by continuing to surf the internet, comment on blogs and forums and writing about what I see while I’m surfing around. Who knew that becoming a successful online writer would require so much reading, visiting, and chit chat?
Truth be told, I love it – just don’t tell my husband because he thinks what I’m doing is hard work.
