Did Blogging come first, or did Social Networking?
If you think about it, social networking, in one form or another has existed since time immemorial. So, the better question would be : did YOU start blogging first, or were YOU social networking even before you were blogging?
And, how is social networking affecting your blogging?
It is often said that social networking can be a powerful tool for bloggers; that it is a good way to get the word about your blog out there, and to get people to visit your blog!
But I don’t agree with that. Social Networking CAN be a powerful tool for bloggers but, before it can be that, a blogger has to make sure that he is doing the other things right. One can not have a good, or even a popular blog, solely on the basis of social networking. A good blog has to have good content, a good layout and regular posts (it goes without saying t hat the quality of the posts has to be good). And if you have a good blog, you stand a better chance of having a popular blog!
Social Networking is good for making friends, but if you want to be a better blogger (the definition of a better blogger is again subjective), just work harder on your blog!
