Two or Three Blog Lessons: NaBloPoMo


If you could teach all bloggers one lesson, what would it be?

I think that there are two lessons that bloggers should know.

1. Your blog should be focused on things that you like (maybe even love) and know inside and out. If you don’t know about the topic or like it, then you’re not benefiting anyone. I don’t write about the new recipe I just tried because that would be lying. The only exception was when I wrote about trying vegetarian recipes for my teenager who was a vegetarian for a few days.

2. Okay, three lessons. Don’t lie – unless it’s a fictional story.

3. Don’t give up. A good blog takes time. The list of blogs that were immediate successes is rather short.
