Blogging Tips for Newbies: #blogtober15

The prompt is to give some advice to new bloggers. I will tell you what has helped me. So take it for what it’s worth.

  1. Write about what you know.
  2. Write about what  you love.
  3. Follow other blogs that interest you.
  4. Comment on other blogs.
  5. Share posts of others on social media.
  6. Share your stuff on social media.
  7. Schedule posts so you can still have a life.
  8. Befriend other bloggers. They will save you a lot of toil and trouble.
  9. Keep it real. Always.
  10. Blog conferences are a good way to meet people and learn about blogging.
  11. Images on posts. People love pictures.
  12. When sharing on Facebook groups – join some groups, by the way- make sure you are sharing to closed groups. If the group is open, it will post on your timeline. Try to limit how many times posts are shared on your timeline. Your friends will be so annoyed by the tenth time that they’ve seen the same post. It’s almost as annoying as all of those Candy Crush invites.
  13. Blog challenges. It’s a good way to draw attention and see other blogs. I used to do a bunch but now I limit it to a handful.
  14. Don’t get discouraged when people unfollow your blog. It happens to everyone. Keep working and you’ll keep gaining followers.
  15. Don’t feel like you have to be limited by a niche. Writing about what’s on your heart can help to make a connection with your readers. If you want to do a fashion post when you generally do reviews or DIY, then do it. Doing something a bit different is fine.
  16. Set goals for following others, for how much you want to post a week, etc.
  17. Unplug on a regular basis. If it makes you feel better, take a journal with you to write down ideas.
