You might ask? “Well if I’m blogging (writing) why do I need people skills?” The answer is that blogging is about communication and providing valuable content to your readers.
It’s about communicating and developing relationships and to do that successfully you have to know how to interact with people.
People skills will help you in developing important liaisons that in time may help you to monetize your blog, find business partners, sell a particular product, interact in many other online opportunities or just plain making friends. You have to learn how to read a person through their comments or their online interaction with you – not such an easy task.
