Be Generous to be Effective
Had cause to revisit my "effective participartion" post this morning in the course of offering a reader my limited insight re: building your blog's traffic. In one of those "blogosphere is serendipitous" moments, Steve Rubel articulated the same philosophy clearly & directly today, boiling down the discourse to one simple behavior: Generosity.
The generosity dynamic that exists in the blogosphere is really
important. If you want to have a successful blog - one that is read
frequently by even a small audience of import - you have to be
generous. There's no way around it.
There really isn't. This is all about constructing a community, and virtual interactions have to be civil &c, just the same as real-life interactions. Find and contribute to your microsphere through generous interaction....
