This might be the most important tip of them all. Take advantage of this blaugust experience and get involved in the blogging community. Make some new friends. Exchange ideas. Read each others blogs. Comment on each other’s blogs. Share each other’s blogs on social media. It’s a great way to keep the blogging community going, and it’s a fantastic way to come up with post ideas of your own!
