Yes, I’m talking to you. Yes, you! And me too 🙂
I recently started sharing blog posts by other Bloggers via Twitter. It was hard at first, because I wanted my readers to read MY content, and didn’t want to bombard my timeline with the writings of other Bloggers…lest I loose followers. But I’ve gotten over it now. I am actually enjoying much more engagement from my followers, since I stopped being so selective in this regard, and began to share as many posts as I happen to love via Twitter!
My followers appreciate me for the different posts I share, and retweet some…and yes, most of the retweets are not even my own posts. But what I realised is that, I am blessing them by sharing, even as I am blessing the Bloggers whose content I share…and I also bless myself, as my general engagement and readership grows. Win, win, win!
As I began to reflect on this, I wondered why the initial hesitation. Why did I think that in order to grow as a Blogger, I had to promote only myself and not others, who are also sharing great messages? If the message is the most important, why should…
