Posts here on The Daily Post run the gamut from widgets to photography to social networking to grammar: anything and everything that might boost your blogging prowess. We’ve got lots more ideas up our sleeves, but we thought we’d check in with you — what questions do you have?

Lack of interaction has caused many a new blogger’s hopes to run aground on the rocks of demotivation, no matter how gung-ho their blogging start. Many of us quickly realize that publishing is actually the easy part — finding readers and encouraging comments is tougher.
What if there were a way to jump-start your entry into the blogging community (or breathe new life into an existing blog)? There’s no Bring Me 100 New Readers button in the dashboard (YET), but participating in blogging events can help fast track you from the margins to the center. To make it easier for you to find and participate in events and challenges that interest you, we’re launching a page just for blog event listings.
Here, we focus on the art and craft of blogging — sharing tips to write more and better, hosting writing challenges to push ourselves and polish our craft, and establishing a space to interact with and learn from others.
Everyone’s “blogging process” is different, from our approach and content to our reasons and goals. For most of you in this community, words take center stage. Yet blogs are very visual platforms, and telling our stories with images is a huge part of the process. Our weekly photo challenges, ever so popular, illustrate this.
We love checking out all your interpretations of the theme in each week’s photo challenge, and know some of you prefer spending your time behind the lens rather than in front of the keyboard. Next week, we’re trying something new to (hopefully!) get everyone blogging, no matter your medium: photography themes to complement some of our daily writing prompts.
Whether you use them as the basis for a gorgeous photo gallery or to help you take the perfect shot to illustrate your post, we hope they’ll be useful for the shutterbugs among you looking for some inspiration. So if you’re all about the image, don’t gloss over the daily prompts — they just might offer the creative boost you need. (Fine artists and poets, we hope they’ll be helpful for you, too!)
