Today, I'm going to share my tips on blogging, from my journey with blogging.Hi! My journey with blogging has been pretty darn exciting but, with some virtual bumps. I've learned some pretty major tips with blogging. From, other blogger's, my mom (who is a blogger too) and myself. These tips can be for anyone, newbies or even, seasoned blogger's. I hope you take these tips serious... BOO! (\.-./)
1. BLOG FOR YOURSELF.
This, this. Blogger's, DON'T BLOG FOR YOUR FOLLOWERS. Blogging is for yourself. To enjoy sharing your life, sharing your outfits, creating stories, etc. Blogging is NOT a race to be the next big star. I, blog for myself. Yeah, it's nice to see people read your thoughts but, that's not the point. Blogging should make you happy.
2. YOU AREN'T GOING TO KATY PERRY IN THREE DAYS!
(Katy Perry is a singer/pop star, not a blogger)
I'm kind-of going back to number 1. Yes, some people live off of blogging, but they started off just like you. The old white, dull, blah blog. All blogger's has been there. People/followers aren't coming in three days, it's going to take time to see the page views go up. But, remember number 1, blog for yourself.
3. KEEP IT CLEAN.
Keep your blog clear from clutter! It good to have stuff on your sidebar but don't over do it! Play around with your blog design, make it you! Make sure everything is in tip-top shape. ^-^
4. DON'T FOLLOW FOR FOLLOW.
You may get a comment saying this,
Would you follow my blog by bloglovin/gfc? I'll do the same!
DON'T! Unless, you like the person's blog. Follow for follow will get you a follower, but do they care about your posts? Maybe?! They may just do follow for follow for followers! BLOG FOR YOURSELF!
5. Last, my mother talks about blogging.
(my mother is a pretty big food blogger, I ask her if she had a tip or two)
Write about what you love and be yourself.
Write often. You don't have to post everyday, but, post somewhat frequently (if you are able).
Photos: Make sure they are clear and bright. Also, if you are using a photo that is not yours..always give credit to that person (very important).
Be social! Check out other blogs that interest you and leave a nice, sincere, comment. It's a great way to meet other blogger's with your niche and they may just return the bloggy love. :)
Thank you mom!
