10 Things I Learned From Blogging--Writer's Workshop

1.  Blogging is a time hog!

2.  You can share scary things about yourself and people love you more instead of less.

3.  What you say matters!  Really. 

4.  You nod your head at the screen when reading other people's blogs.  See, you just did it.  And now you are laughing.

5.  Laughing out loud at your computer screen is perfectly normal.

6.  You have to try not to laugh out loud since you don't really want to share what's so funny with the kids.

7.  Comment, respond, and write consistently. 

8.  Visiting new blogs may bring new readers to you.

9.  So does having giveaways.  Hey, who doesn't like free stuff!?

10.  Try to always end your post with a question.

I love the list, but are they supposed to be linked to examples? I clicked on all of them and I got an error message. Is it my computer?

Great list! =]

I've read many of these before but I didn't think about ending posts with a question.

Did you?

(see, I'm a quick learner)

Perfect list...I would have said addition instead of time hog. What have I learned...that there are some really amazing people out there with wonderful ideas, words, and inspiration to share. I never imagined I would make blog friends...I can kind of see how internet dating works now.
