You may wonder who is that crazy person who wants to give people tips on reading. It’s only me, your weird blogging friend Noirfifre, haha. I want to share with you some manoeuvres I use to make the most of reading on a platform hosting millions of bloggers. Isn’t that just down right crazy and exciting at the same time. Since, I dip my toes into blog reading both on Blogger and WordPress around 2009/2010, I learned some tricks. It was through reading that I became attracted to WordPress.
1. Subscribe to blogs that carry topics which interests you, you do not have to “follow” another simply because that blog showed an interest in your blog. Now I am not saying you if you have a regular reader/commentator on your blog, you should not go over to their world from time to time. Who knows you may come across some posts address in a special way which piques your radar to a new delight. However, when you do reciprocate subscribe just for the sake of it, you will open your Reader to topics of no appeal to you. What would WordPress feel like then? Yes, I subscribed to a few bloggers who are not subscribed to me and that is fine. For example, I read regularly of bloggers quest in conquering the world through travelling. Shoot, I live vicariously through them because I love seeing photos and reading tales of gorgeous sites and extraordinary natural creation. However, my blog has no major interest to these persons because I am not a world traveller and certainly think thrice about experimenting with unfamiliar food.
