My virtual friend Michael Brooks announced on his blog that he is challenging himself:
Something I would like to try out for this month is post less on social media (excluding Instagram) and post more on WordPress. I rarely spend time posting to social anyway, but it could be interesting. Even if it’s just comments on other people’s blogs.
This will help me gain a larger blogging circle which I feel I am missing at current. I always want to encourage new readers to like and comment on my own posts, and I feel I should return the favour. If you can recommend anyone to follow, then please let me know.
Since I have quite a few different bloggers I follow I decided to help share who I’m reading by doing an export of my “blogger” category and share it with anyone who may be interested in finding more writers. Here is the XML export:
Hopefully, this will help you find some more independent bloggers and get some inspiration in the process.
