Hi folks! This post is written to discuss Sunday Showcase, my other blog.
There are many people on WordPress who are gifted and yet humble. They are shy to turn their own works in to be posted by me each Sunday. Posts you think are great, written by other people, are still welcome. But it dawned on me, why shouldn’t we post our own writings? I know we don’t want to brag on ourselves. However, here are the reasons why you would not be bragging if you turned in one of your favorite posts that you wrote:
1. Having a blog, and making friends on other blogs, is part of being in a social network. And one way of getting to know people is sharing with each other.
2. In the blogosphere, of course you have choices. You can mark your blog as private, or you can open up. It’s entirely up to you. But your friends “out there” benefit from reading your works, even if you don’t want a following.
3. I think of the famous writer’s rule: “Show, don’t tell.” Posting on a blog is showing. 🙂
Hope to hear from you soon,
