5 ways to support the Blogosphere (and Why You Should)

Image (cc) Ivy Dawned, on FlickrWay back when, round about 2010, there was something called the RPG blogosphere.  It was awesome. It was like some kind of interconnected network of blogs, a web that went worldwide. Then with the increasing uptake of "social media" the blogosphere dwindled - but now it's back I think it's important that we keep it running.CommentWe like comments, that's why we have them enabled.  These blogs are public spaces to share thoughts, ideas, and resources and feedback is always welcome; nobody likes to think they're just shouting into The Void.  As a bonus, comments on blogs add links back to the author's blog and links mean a) more curious traffic shuttles between them and b) better SEO because it counts as a word of mouth recommendation as far as search engine spiders are concerned. It was part of the original design philosophy and it's why spammers spam and why some blogs have limitations on who can comment, or require moderation.This is a social medium, so let

I say that because without the support groups, I didn't know what I was doing and thus I didn't do it.The first of these groups was the mostly 40k discussion forum Dakka Dakka. I still post there today, as the wealth of knowledge available is vast. I cut my chops painting there even documenting my year of painting 520 miniatures in a year (that's 10 models a week) on the site.I still post there. Each year I try to paint 360 models (30 a month) and mostly fail. But it's a challenge I try each year knowing that I've done that much and more.(This year I've surpassed that number if my counting has been up to snuff, but that's for an end of year post)From there I've joined facebook groups, mostly. There's a community just for Warmachine figures, one for the local gamestore, even one that's just about photographing the minis. (once someone mentions an f-stop though, I tend to checkout).So when this community of painters came up through my feed, I was i
