Blog communications are happening all around us. They happen on your blog, on my blog and the blogs of your friends. Have you ever put thought on how those communications can affect thousands of people we will never get to know?
If you think about it, most of us go around in circles. We visit Brett, Cath, Jenny, Friar, Kelly, MwP, Davina, Rita, WD, Cathy, Bec, Alex, UP, UL, Leanne, Steph, Ebele, WD, Liz, Melissa, and the dozens of other bloggers I have failed to mention. All these people are individuals or couples who we have come to trust and love.
They have evoked a special feeling within us that makes us go back for seconds, thirds and dessert most days.
It doesn’t mean they can cook better than other people. But they are bloggers who have managed to capture what Liz Strauss calls blog communications. Each of these bloggers has managed to create a community of like minded bloggers. We are all part of something much more powerful than we realize.
Blog communications are the key to successful blogging. A typical example is Clay Collins of The Growing Life. Not long ago he was a new kid on the block, but within a short time span he has managed to wow bloggers around the world. His blog has become a communal get together as are many of yours. He is in fact so successful now that he recently turned down an offer of $12,000 for his blog.
This offer was so strong that he stated “I almost shut down The Growing Life forever.”
What would you do if that happened to you? Would you sell, or would you keep blogging?
Certainly not an easy decision to make. That kind of money could be close to a yearly income for some. Plus, once you know the format of creating successful blogs you could just rinse and repeat – right? Well, you will be the judge of that.
However, one thing is for sure. All the bloggers I mentioned and thousands more, wouldn’t have the success they do, if it wasn’t for their blog conversations.
I think it is safe to say that Brett is the undisputed hero of this art – beside Liz Strauss of course. The guy seems to be prevalent everywhere I go on the blogosphere. Good job he is my friend, otherwise I might have to send the contractors his way. LOL, but kidding aside, it is in fact thanks to Brett that I have managed to increase my own blog conversation and build a community of like minded people from all across the world.
Many are now dear to my heart and while I will never meet most of you in person, I will never forget you guys either. You are the essence of what this blog is all about and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Brett, you deserve an extra special thanks. And for those of you who don’t know Brett yet, go and check out his community at 6 Weeks. You will be glad you did.
