    I had set up a blog and didn't know what to do with it! roll
    I went looking for information about how to get traffic to my blog and found a hub pages article that was written in an honest and friendly style. It said one way would be to sign up at a site like this one and write an article about my blog with a link, a link in the profile and if there were relevant items to sell with amazon I could add them too and maybe earn that way. My blog was six months old and had not been viewed. I signed up right away and wrote an article, I didn't even know the site had a forum yet lol. In the half hour I spent trying my hand at writing an article I had had 2 followers. Of course I thought I could write another article and maybe it would be read in under a half hour of being published too. By the time I finished it I had had a comment on  my first hub and had what I felt to be a real and genuine fan. This sweet hubber was dohn121 by the way. At this point I was motivated to write just to be read, I enjoyed just knowing my work was being read (unlike my disheveled blog). I have since read and had a few good mile stones and am focusing a lot on writing for good information and products. I expect over the summer holidays from work I may well do a few more stories and opinion hubs smile. This has been a great learning environment and I know when I go back to try blogging again I will have a better idea of how to create it and promote it and the value of being patient too big_smile
