Don’t Forget Your Real Life Networks
When you start a blog, don’t just think about starting everything from scratch, remember your real life networks. There is nothing wrong with sharing what you are doing with your friends, family, and professional networks. In fact, many people will suggest staring there if you are a beginner
Think of it this way – if the people who know you and care about you don’t care about what you say, you might not be on the right track. These people will most likely be the ones to encourage you on your way, and give you honest feedback in a constructive way.
One tip in developing your brand or site is to ask others what they like, dislike, and what they want to hear. Starting with your existing network will give you honest feedback and can jumpstart your audience.
