Go to a blog of someone that is blogging for the first time. Welcome them. Answer their questions if they have one and write a motivating comment for them. That not only motivates them, but it motivates you too! If they seem to be struggling, give them a spark goodie. It will make them feel so much better. Then they will comment on your page and tell you how much they appreciate your comment and thank you for the spark goodie!!
