5 Reasons Why You Need A Blog Partner

I’ve been blogging (consistently) for about two years. John of Tentblogger has been extremely helpful in recent days to help fine tune the why and how of blogging.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to speak by phone with my blog partner Blane Young. It’s the first time I spoke with someone about blogging…. specifically, my blog. We shared a lot of great ideas about our references for blogging and plans for the future. While I won’t go into detail regarding all of what’s ahead. I can assure of one thing it will be GOOD. That’s a hint 🙂

More importantly, here’s what I learned after talking with Blane. I’m sharing these, because I’m almost certain (so was Blane) that our paths are likely to have never crossed with out this post.

Here are five things I learned that may be of help to you:

  1. Never be afraid to improve
  2. Never be too wise to learn something new from someone else
  3. You can broaden your horizons by listening to people outside of your circle
  4. Except constructive push back, just like positive feedback
  5. Extend the conversation with an actionable follow up (something GOOD is about to happen)

    Thanks for sharing this, Dewitt. I thought I could probably overlook the "blogging buddy" idea, thinking, others may not really have the time to engage since I'm more of a part-time blogger. However, as the dream has continued to develop about my blogging, and through comments and posts like yours, I realize this is a critical component to a successful venture.

    I'll be looking for someone or a team to join in this journey.

      The intentional feedback from a blog buddy is extremely helpful. Go for it.
