30 quick blogging tips

 

 

Think you haven’t got time to learn about blogging? Think again.

Ready, set, go……

  1. Blog about something you love
  2. Be interesting. This is easy if you are already interested in whatever you’re blogging about. See point 1.
  3. Blog as often as you have something to say that deserves to be shared
  4. Don’t just blog because you think you should and you haven’t written a post in a while
  5. Use an original image as often as possible
  6. Don’t put somebody else’s photo on your blog without their permission, even if you took the picture in a public place
  7. Use a spell check
  8. Keep paragraphs short
  9. Aim for at least 250 words per post
  10. More than 600 words and it might be worth splitting into two posts
  11. Though long essays are OK sometimes if you’ve got something that really needs to be said
  12. And if you’ve got a great picture or video you might not need any words at all
  13. Don’t get your blog design get too busy – if you’ve got lots of blog badges cluttering up the page maybe put them on a separate page by themselves
  14. See your blog as an opportunity to get better at writing and literacy
  15. While you’re at it, learn the difference between their and they’re; its and it’s; you’re and your. That’s a skill for life.
  16. Think about whether you want to be anonymous before you blog, not after
  17. Comment on lots of other blogs to make connections in the blogging community
  18. Don’t leave mean comments. If you can’t think of anything nice to say, keep schtum.
  19. If you enjoyed a post enough to read it right through to the end, leave a comment
  20. Reply to comments. Ignoring them looks arrogant.
  21. If it’s turning into a big reply, make that your next blog post instead.
  22. It’s good to have a blogging niche, but not essential. Your niche could simply all the things you’re interested in
  23. If you do have a niche, pick one that is wide enough so you don’t run out of ideas
  24. If you’re writing a blog review, it’s OK to say you didn’t like it. Despite what they said in The Lego Movie, not everything is awesome.
  25. Include an About Me page so that readers can find out a little more about the person behind the blog
  26. If you want people to contact you, include an email address or contact form. You can always set up a dedicated gmail address for this, but make sure you check it regularly.
  27. Add a search box so readers can easily find previous posts
  28. If you write an angry post, sleep on it before hitting ‘Publish’
  29. Accept that not everyone will like your blog, and this is fine. Not everyone likes ice cream. The world does not collapse as a result.
  30. It’s OK for your blog not to be perfect when you start. It might not ever be perfect. Blogs are the story of a journey, a work in progress rather than a finished product.

    I love this! Very good tips. I can’t emphasize the About Me page thing enough…before I read anything else on a blog, I open up the About Me page and see who I’m dealing with. :)
