10 Tips for New Bloggers

The number one question that I get asked is “I am starting a blog, do you have any tips for me?”. The answer is yes I do! I have been blogging for almost four years now and have learned some things along the way.

Continue reading to get my blogging tips! Make sure that you are following my blog for more posts like this!

 

  1. The first tip that I have for anyone, is to make sure that you choose a topic that you love. Blogging takes a lot of time and effort, so you want to make sure that you are enjoying the time that you invest in.
  2. Tip number two is to make blogging friends! Connecting with people can be very helpful, they can share advice and you can share your advice with them! There are so many different opportunities that can come out of just being genuine friends.
  3. Number three, stay consistent. I am sure that this tip doesn’t just apply to blogging. If you are trying to gain your Instagram following, YouTube channel, or anything else, you must stay consistent.
  4. Don’t be afraid to try new things. Blogging has pushed me outside of a box that I didn’t even realize that I was in. Taking photos in public use to terrify me! Now I can give two fucks if people are looking at me weird. They are never going to see me again.
  5. Use the resources that are given. Take advantage of hashtags, tags, and sharing! Try sharing your blog posts on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
  6. Just like YouTube, titles are important. Make sure that the titles are going to catch your reader’s attention.
  7. Add pretty photos, readers like visuals.
  8. Scheduling blog posts ahead of time is a great way to save time.
  9. Collaborate with other bloggers. This helps to grow your blog following and introduces your blog to a whole new audience.
  10. Remember to have fun! Don’t feel like you have to write posts, it’s going to take the fun out of blogging and you will get burnt out. Blog when you want to and mix it up every now and again.

      1. Thank you. Normally I would ask for someone to see if the blog and the tags are any good or that I can improve it in any way. But I don’t know who to ask, or how to start asking that question

      2. You really think the blog is great? This is maybe my critical view, but I have the feeling that it still can be a bit better

      3. I just really hope the blog will improve in the future. And to be honest, I don’t know if my friends would like the blog.

  5. I’ve just started and I’m not too sure what to. I’ve been wanting to blog for ages but my anxiety has stopped me. I’ve been still feeling anxious towards whether people would want to read and follow my blog. Thank you for the tips!

  6. You can # wordpress now? That’s a new one on me! Haha. How does that work then, just anywhere in the post? I’ve been around the blogosphere a few times, but completely stopped all writing a couple years back. Despite knowing firsthand how hard it is to build up followers, likes, etc, I decided the only way for me to start again is with a complete blank slate. No baggage. New email. New account. New site.

    My blog hasn’t much to offer right now, but I will be writing writing/blogging advice, fiction, lifestyle/inspiration articles, and posting my art journey when it suits. (I’m not much of an artist, but I do occasionally get the urge to sketch…)

    Anyway, I’d like to share the eulogy I’ve written for my grandfather to as many people as will read it. I have it featured in my nav bar, despite it being personal and void of SEO. It stands as an example of the exception, where something close to home overrules the standardised rules of google. I want the eulogy to be one of the first things people see when they arrive on my blog, and that’s how it’s staying 😉 Here’s the link if you’re interested… I hope you don’t mind me link dropping. It’d be nice to build up some friends ‘round here 🙂
