Many who give blogging advice have noted that guest blogging and social networking are crucial to a blog’s success. It wasn’t always that way. Contrary to that advice, I believe a blog can still stand on its own. If the articles are interesting and thought-provoking enough, the blog will attract individuals who are already HUGE in the social media scene. They’ll spread the word well! And no need for guest blogging!
I’d like to invite you and your readers to visit my blog and take a little blogging quiz, offer your 2 centsworth…
