You don’t always get feedback when you start out and it’s tough figuring it all out on your own. One of the best decisions I made for my personal blog was to blog for Yoga Health Coaching. I love it. It’s a fun opportunity to write on health and wellness to expand my reader base. And as you can see below there are a lot more reasons to blog for yoga health coaching.com.

Reading other writers work and meeting with them to exchange ideas makes you a better writer. Some of the YHC bloggers are extremely successful and willing to share how they built their readership.
Writing with a group of writers generates opportunities to collaborate. You read a blog that covers something your readers can use. Get on the forum and ask to do a joint blog or for them to guest blog on your site.
When you are just starting out, it is often hard to get feedback, because you haven’t built your community. Writing for a more established platform can get you a better sense of what people need and gravitate to.
It can be tough to build a community from scratch. The more places you show up in writing, the more likely the right people will find you. You really want your people, the ones you can best help to find you.
