you’d like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic)”
My very own blogging tips!
#1. Have a voice. You know how you talk? You should probably write like that. If people read an excerpt of your blog -would they know it’s yours?
#2. Get to know other bloggers. comment. introduce yourself via email. back when i started, and now, if i discover someone i admire, would like to get to know, etc. i reach out to them. i let them know how their words are inspiring/encouraging/_____.
#3. People are just people, they shouldn’t make you nervous. This just sort of reinforces #2.
#4. Very seldom I’ll get an email from someone saying “can I guest post for you?! I love your blog” … usually in these emails, it’s very generic … sometimes my name isn’t even after “Hello”. Don’t go this route. I mean, I’m sure some blogger gained a following somewhere by doing this. But, just, no.
#5. I don’t read many blogs anymore. But unlike when I first started blogging, I have to be very mindful of my time now. But if you’re just starting out … Read blogs, comment thoughtfully. repeat.
#6. People say it all the time. Because it’s true. Be Authentic. People can smell phony a mile a way.
#7. People say this too. But it’s true. Be vulnerable. Vulnerability feels like nails on a chalkboard coming out … but it’s real. and you’re likely helping someone out there when you do. So I say it is a blogging DO. But I also don’t think it should be for attention.
#8. Aside from when I was miserable and pregnant, I blogged pretty consistently. be consistent
#9. Take your own photos as much as you can!
Hope that was semi helpful (:
