I started blogging, sporadically, in 2010 but stopped midway through 2012. I wasn’t very serious about writing so I only followed one or two blogs, people I knew. Those blogs are now extinct. I have a tumblr account and follow Jim Gaffigan, overheard in the newsroom and betterwithlaughter1988.
I started blogging again, regularly, in July (2015) so I’m almost at the “following” point. I’m better at writing than following and I’m not sure why I should follow blogs. I read and enjoy connecting with other writers/bloggers, but what’s the point of following? Do I follow blogs similar to mine? Different? I’m open to suggestions for blogs to follow and reasons why following is important. It is important, right?
