Blogging and the Need for Networking

Since I started to earn out of the blogging in 2017, it is the very lonely year for me so far.

I am all stuck into my village and hardly had a chance to move out for the networking purpose except for one time.

And that was back in February 2017 when I happened to attend the WordPress meetup in Lahore, Pakistan.

While 2016 went so best regarding the networking where I met so many folks, delivered my first lecture in the WordPress meetup conducted in Karachi, Pakistan, and did a lot of traveling between Karachi and Lahore.

Now that I am all inside the home but working up on something to give me wings. 🙂

The need of networking for blogging

Networking is essential.

You cannot excel in anything for long (or just keep going) if you don’t meet the new people.

With the network, you are to share your expertise, your knowledge and absorb the same from the people you’re meeting.

And that if your meet is with the relevant people working in your domain; man!! That’s super helpful.

My advice: Meet with the relevant. Click To Tweet

With my experience of networking in 2016, it helped exponentially to double up my knowledge and ignite the fire to keep going with the blogging.

It made me learn as well that how people are doing in the field of blogging right from my country.

I had not had an idea that how the blogging was doing for them until I experienced the reality.

I was like a big “WOW!!”

And since I am into the blogging from long is somewhat known into the blogosphere, it helped me to absorb the knowledge more than all the years I spent without the network.

So, that’s so essential to the network.

And be it the physical network. Like attending the events time to time, meet with the like-minded people and collaborate with them.

Your turn to express your thoughts

Are you the networker and feel super happy attending the physical event (not web based ones)?

Let’s share your thoughts with the world! 🙂

Hi Adeel,

Awesome Post!

Thanks for sharing your experience. It will inspire newbies like me to explore the world of networking. Networking is essential for blogging. One can create a high quality content, but what’s it’s use if there are no readers. Networking is a way to tell the world what you have to offer.

Attending the physical events has it’s own advantages. You meet real people working in the same domain, exchange thoughts, share your experiences.

I will tweet your post.

Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Adeel,

These are great tips for new bloggers or anyone who has been blogging for a while. I personally think that networking is extremely important for all bloggers.

In the past with my last blogs, I tried to do everything myself. I refused to network or use social media to help me grow my blog. Instead, I focused 100% on SEO. I did manage to get some good rankings, but eventually, my site got penalized by Google.

This time around, I am actually taking the time to network and build relationships. I love this method of blogging a lot better than the way I used to do it.

It’s definitely easier when you’ve built up e-friendships online and people take the time to share your content. Or when they allow you to guest post on their blog.

I haven’t attended any events, I was planning on going to a WordPress Camp this Summer, but couldn’t make it. I definitely need to take the time to attend an event, because it definitely sounds like it could be helpful for networking offline.

Thanks for sharing these tips have a great day 🙂

Susan
