I believe anything that helps me grow positively is for the good and is blessed by God’s wishes.For me writing on my blog has been a self-healing and self-discovery of sorts.Blogging contests fall right where reading, writing, gardening, and thankfulness comes from.It helps me write, it helps me learn, it helps me push my boundaries and grow my blog.
Over the past one year, I have participated in a few contests.I have completed most of them.My take away from them was the community feeling.The feeling there are people just like me, who are struggling to find themselves and their blogs.
You feel like you belong. These are the people who are trying to do more, with what they have, wherever they are.That’s powerful.
How do these contests help me?
- Helps me write and motivates me, even when I am busy and have many excuses for not writing!Its like a slow burn.Writing will be a soothing aloe vera gel!
- Helps me promote my blog.That’s the power of networking.
- Helps me read and discover new blogs.
- Helps me learn from other bloggers.
- It is the best way to get noticed by brands if you are writing useful content.
- Did you know the comment links even when no follow have link juices?So reading and commenting on blogs will help to depend on your niche and the quality of the blog in question.
- It helps in my blog’s health and my emotional health.
- Helped me write my first two books
- Blogging contests help keep the inertia of writing going.
Newton’s First law: In an inertial reference frame, an object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by a force.
An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.If you write regularly, you will keep writing .When you stop writing you are at risk of inertia of rest ! #Newton #ThankfulThursdays #Bloggingcontests Click To Tweet
