I had a lengthy post planned but as I am still only on my way home from Galway this will be a slightly condensed version. Sharon from Behind Green Eyes has also done a brilliant post so check that out!
My advice is:
Blog for yourself!
Don’t focus on followers, stats and the like. Don’t focus on what others have achieved. You are different and will achieve different things.
Build your engagement with the readers you do have. I’d rather 10 regular readers than 100 people who read once and leave again!
Don’t blog for free stuff! It’s rare and not always what you are enthusiastic about so don’t rely on it for good content!
Don’t rehash the press release! Anyone can do that; I want to know YOUR thoughts – not those of the company/PR!
On a similar note, find a look that reflects you and that you are happy with for your blog and try resist the urge to keep changing.
Get involved in the community! Bloggers will be your best support in blogging. Chat on twitter, join Facebook groups, comment on others’ posts! You’ll find a whole world of friends you haven’t met yet!
Most importantly, ENJOY!
