I feel giddy over the thought of me being a blogger. Hihi. Although this isn’t my first venture into the blogging world, the other one being an anonymous blog for emo crap and moving on shiz, (DO NOT JUDGE ME HAHA) the idea of me being part of the blogging community still seems like a joke.
Excluding this entry, I already have 16 blog posts to be ashamed proud of. But the question to ask is, do these earn me the right to be called an effective blogger? Or a real one at least.
Have I been LISTENING?
Well, technically it should be reading instead of listening since I’m talking about blogs here. But have I been listening because I believe it should always be my first move. Every one’s first move. We should all be listening not only to what people have to say about us, but also to what others have to say about things we want to talk about. In short, research.
Have I been CONNECTING?
Social media wasn’t called social media for nothing. We’re all supposed to be getting S-O-C-I-A-L, creating conversations, and joining communities. Have I been linking to and commenting on other people’s blogs?
Have I been SHARING?
Whether I shared a blog entry, a photo, a video or an audio clip, was it actually something useful to the community? Did I make sense in my posts or were they all gibberish? Well I certainly hope not. :p
I can blog all I want but in the end, I should be thinking whether I’ve been doing it the right way. SURPRISE SURPRISE!!! I should be listening, connecting, and sharing, because after all, social media is not all about my blog.
How about you? Do you think you deserve to be called a blogger? :)
