In the last few years, there’s been an upsurge in the number of people that have taken up blogging either as a profession or as a hobby / pastime and an information gap has been created in the process, which BloggersLink.com (an online community of bloggers) is here to bridge.
Many have ran into blogging in order to make some quick dough only to find out that things don’t work like that. Some adapted and started doing things right, while some other ones simply dropped off the radar. Blogging is not available as a course in a tertiary institution neither is it available at a training school down the street. Therefore everybody has to learn on their own. The wise ones that quickly understood the essence of networking attached themselves to someone with the proper knowledge or researched online to learn from the articles written by pros in the field. Some were also able to combine both methods of learning.
Therefore, we can safely conclude that one can learn how to blog by any of the following methods
- Learn on your own by experimenting with things to see what works and what doesn’t
- Learning directly from a pro in the field.
- Searching and reading (researching) through articles written by pros in the field concerning different problems that they may encounter.
- A combination of the above-mentioned methods.
I noticed this information gap, so, I decided to start an online community of bloggers, BloggersLink.com. so that this gap can be bridged or at least reduced to the barest minimum. It is a full-blown social network that is targeted towards bloggers only and would give bloggers the opportunity to
