If you ever want your blog to fail, just use the same username and gravatar as you do for another blog. It’s the perfect recipe to get ignored. 🙄 Of course, I’m being tongue-in-cheek. We all want our work to be seen and enjoyed by others, no matter how many blogs or websites we run or write for. I had to learn this lesson for myself the hard way.
I learned this quickly when I switched to using only one account for both blogs, shortly after setting this one up. In the blogging world where we depend on one another for support, comments, likes and views to help get the ball rolling, I learned about the worse thing you can do is run two blogs using the same username.
I didn’t start out using the same username. I just got tired of switching accounts and wasn’t sure whether there was actually a need for it. Let me assure you there is. Every time I’d publish something on Mykie Writes It, I’d do what I normally do and visit the work of some other blogs like mine to generate likes and shares and get the ball rolling. Only when another blogger clicks on the notification that they’ve received a comment or like, people were getting sent to my health and wellness blog The Zebra Pit, instead.
Naturally, I appreciate the added attention to the Zebra Pit, but this blog is withering on the vine and I certainly can’t have that. So, I’ve gone back to my two account strategy and re-invited myself to this blog. I hope it doesn’t give me split personalities! 😁
I’m sure what it will give me is twice the blogs to read, but who could possibly complain about reading the great work of my peers on WP?! Besides, my creative work matters quite a lot to me and I want the world to see it. In order to do that, I’m going to need a little help from some friends.
