When a site like BlogBourne.com comes to our attention, one of the first things we might think about is that we should tell our friends. We might think everyone should invite everyone they know to join BlogBourne.com and do it now. What could be wrong with this idea?
Many we know might love to join BlogBourne.com because they have the spirit of a writer. However, some of our family members and friends may think it is not the site for them. Even when we know our friends are writing on other sites, they might say they are not interested at this time.
We can all keep in mind that some might have been disappointed along the way by another site and they now want to take it slow. Perhaps these friends or family members might want to join BlogBourne.com for the purpose of interacting with others, even though they may not want to write an article here now.
It does take a sincere interest in writing for most to contribute to any site where others will be reading and commenting on what has been written. Members must allow others to express their opinions and sometimes actually criticize or disagree with what a writer has said. If someone we think would make a great BlogBourne.com member can’t handle these issues, perhaps we should not pressure them to join.
One thing we might want to think about doing before we push someone into joining BlogBourne.com or any other site is how they will benefit the site. A disappointed writer can be discouraged and sometimes bring down a small group of friends in a short time.
This does not mean we should not mention BlogBourne.com to everyone. We never know who might be the next great writer here. Weren’t we all invited by someone thinking we might have something interesting to share?
