blogging tips

i regress to day 2 of the challenge.  but i’m blogging everyday since I’ve started.  by gosh i am!

Educate
us on something you know alot about or are good at. Take any approach
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 (:

    I reallly like the tips you gave for successful blogging. Sometimes it seems hard to be successful at it but these are usual tips even in real life interactions i think.

    I found this helpful! It's easy to get a little intimidated at the thought of approaching other bloggers, but I always want to tell them I think this or that is great. But that's also being vulnerable. You are really right about the vulnerability thing, recently I've been realising that even when you meet people in real life, if they aren't willing to be vulnerable, it's hard to feel a connection.

    Can you clarify on #4…does that mean you should or should not email about guest blogging?

    Great advice! I liked the part about consistency except when miserable & pregnant. Totally fell off the blogging wagon this past winter b/c of that & now I feel better about it!

    In direct response to #2, I have to say how much I admire your blog. I discovered it last week and had a ball reading through the archives. I have a son, only about a month younger than Tuck, and I adore all of your new momma advice. It is refreshing to find a corner of the internet to have so much authenticity and such zest for life. looking forward to following along on the rest of your adventures. Thanks for the great blogging advice today!
