When a blogger reaches a certain size, the blogosphere gets a ton more competitive. The bloggers stop sharing their tips and secrets. They stop sharing your content. They stop linking to others.
On the other hand, we (Kelli & Crystal) believe that healthy competition is great, but in order to push ourselves higher, we need more competition. So, we need to share everything we know with fellow bloggers. We need to link to them regularly. We need to share their stuff across our social media channels.
According to WordPress.com:
Over 409 million people view more than 22.9 billion pages each month.
409 million people EACH MONTH! What are we fighting for? Why are we trying to hold back the little people? Yes, we had to learn this stuff ourselves, but lets boost the newer bloggers and raise the overall expectations of bloggers! If we are all “doing this right” then we are all forced to try even harder, to learn something new, to be a bit more professional. Right?
