Imagine a spider web.
When my wife Kelli and I traveled to the remote jungles of Costa Rica we saw spider webs 6 feet – aka 2 meters – across. Massive golden orb spiders spun these webs, like the one I photographed above who lived outside of the house.
On further inspection I saw how these Shelob-like creatures built their webs; 1 node, and 1 connection at a time.
After creating a node the spider spun a linking strand, connecting it to another node.
After a few hours of noding and linking a massive web appeared in the jungle, reaching far and wide.
Your blogging friend network is no different. Each friend you make is like a node. Each strand you create is the connection you establish between nodes.How to build a successful blog and build strong bonds with readers? Pro Blogger Ryan Biddulph shares some tips via pvariel.com Click To Tweet
