Hesham asks on his site “is blogs like plants and cars?!”
I felt that my response could be better stated in an article rather than a long comment. I tend to get winded in my comments.
Blogs can be very similar to plants. Your design is the soil- the foundation to prepare for your plant. The seed is the content itself that needs nuturing. You can nuture your site by bring in people to read and comment. Each comment quenches the seed’s needs in order to grow.
As more seeds are planted, the blog becomes like a garden of various flowers.
Is that a cheesy analogy? For me… no.
It is important that you find out how to make your blog grow. Some methods work better than others, and some work hand-in-hand. Some great places to find people who are interested:
- Social networking sites
- relevant blogs in your niche
In return, you can help nuture other sites too by leaving comments. It only takes a minute to do and can prove to be valuable to the website owner. Do not be afraid to ask how you can improve your own site and what you should do to promote it?
How do you nuture your blog?
