Often I get to witness the difference between Blogger A and Blogger B. They are so different because their outlooks on social media are different. Let’s examine these two bloggers and find out why they are so different!
Recently I pushed the Meet and Greet post again for new bloggers to find some new connections. I always get some amusement out of observing how people use this resource. You can definitely see a difference in outlook and blogging format on this thread. The Meet and Greet is my gift back to my readers and to WordPress as a whole.
I watched Blogger A get excited about the Meet and Greet thread. To Blogger A this was an awesome post and an opportunity for thousands of readers to find him. Blogger A immediately used the board by dropping his link and asking for people to come and visit! He then went back to watching ice melt and waited to go viral. He is still waiting for that to happen.
Blogger B saw the post for what it truly is. A forum and an opportunity to “call upon bloggers” and meet them. That is the MEET and greet part of the whole thing. Blogger B also placed her blog link into the post, but she didn’t stop there. She scrolled through the comments and found likeminded bloggers that may have wanted to connect back with her. Then she spent hours networking and gaining new subscribers all from doing one thing – caring to reach out first. She didn’t link drop and wait. She went out and got what she wanted.
If you have read this blog before and know me… you know I am here to support the grinders. I am here to help those trying to help themselves first. I have sympathy, but I have little time to be sympathetic for those that just want pity. I respect action and those that go out and get it because that is all any of us are really doing. Connecting, blogging, networking, growing, and getting what we want each day through the grind. That is blogging to me.
So which are you? Are you Blogger A or B?
