Bloggers, like men, are not islands. The essence of building a blog is so that you can share content that benefits people. Often, we are called upon to work with other bloggers on a project, and you can’t do that if you don’t know them.

That is why it is very important to interact with other bloggers. They will help build you. How can we do that?
Reach out to other bloggers on social media
This includes joining blogger groups on Facebook, google+, WhatsApp and anywhere else you will find bloggers. Also, engage them on Twitter. These bloggers you ignore are the people who are ever present in that platform. Reach out and see where that connection goes. You never know.
Attend blogger meetups, Training, and conferences
Meetups are where you will find new bloggers and pro-bloggers mingling, networking and sharing ideas. This is where you ought to be. Training workshops have pro-bloggers teaching enthusiasts how to become better bloggers if you are one or becoming a blogger from scratch. These are especially important because you get to have the first-hand experience of what it is to be a blogger and learn from the experts themselves. BAKE, organizes such training workshops several times a year in different counties in the county. Make sure that when you hear the call, heed it. It will be very beneficial.
