Hey gang! Coming at you today to pick your big beautiful brains about a few things. I’ve been thinking lots lately about blogging and engagement with blog readers and what that looks like. I’d love to know your thoughts on the matter, whether you’re a blog reader or a blogger yourself.
Even in the few short years that I’ve been in the blogging game, I’ve seen engagement style change over and over again. It seems to go through cycles — sometimes there’s lots of action on the blog, with great comments and people really wanting to have conversations there. Sometimes that dies out and the engagement is on social media. These days Instagram is an awesome place for engaging with readers and other bloggers. Twitter and Facebook have both always been spotty for me; it comes and goes.
So my question for you is this: how do you like to engage, whether you’re a reader or a blogger? Do you prefer to comment on blogs? Or maybe you would rather just communicate via social media. And if it is on social media, do you show your support with ‘likes’ and ‘follows,’ or do you actually like to start conversations?
And speaking of social media, what’s your fave? I know for me there are some that I love and find totally energizing and exciting, and some that I just. can’t. stand. What about you? Do you have favorites or certain platforms that just make you crazy?
There are so many questions! I’d love to know your thoughts on any or all of it, so let’s talk it out. Part of me wants to know so that I can make things better for you lovelies with regards to how we communicate, and part of me is just interested because I find this stuff fascinating. We live in the future, you guys. Leave a comment and let’s hash it out! xoxo
