You are probably aware that there’s different types of bloggers just as there are different kids on a schoolyard. After just a short span of time you can point out which ones who are the bullies, the nerds, the cool kids, etc. It’s an interesting subject but it’s not what this post is about. Today I will share some of my observations on blog groups.
People with similar personalities form groups
I’m one of those who encourage everyone to comment on others blogs to get recognised and occasionally get some new visitors. Although, you need to watch what you are doing to stop yourself from walking in circles.
I’m sure you can remember your school were people gradually spread up into small groups with common interest and/or ambitions. You can see the same thing online. People who are interested in making money spend their time on blogs about how to make money online. People who are interested in clothes and design spend their time on blogs about design – You can see the pattern?
The problem with internet is that there are hundreds or even thousands of these small groups about the same subject. If you take a look you’ll see that most people who are commenting on my blog are probably also commenting on other blogs you are following – It’s a circle. This is because people comment on one article and then they will visit everyone else who already have commented this particle article.
Occasionally there will turn up a few new commentators from Google or different social media sites and thereby drag a few new persons with them.
A simple solution
The solution is actually real simple and I’m sure you’ve thought about it already. Just break out from the circle and find new blogs to comment on. Just by finding one new blog you will most certainly find a whole new group of bloggers that you’ve never heard of.
With this said you should still maintain your current relationships and not try to find more blogs than you have the time to.
What are you doing to stay out of this circle?
