Disclaimer: Don’t be fooled, I am not a blogging wizard.
That’s right, the disclaimer says it all, I’m not a blogging genius and I certainly don’t know everything about the blogging world, but whatever I have learned I would be more than happy to share.
You all probably know this but under “Post Settings” there is a “Categories” option where you can organize your posts. Creating categories for your posts and blogs is very important because it helps the reader quickly find things! For example, if you have a lifestyle blog, such as myself, having different categories that separate things neatly on the blog help readers find specific content. So, if you are writing about fitness, food, fashion, make sure to have a category for each separate category of writing that you write about.
I imagine the screams and outcries right now from everyone that has hated group work in the past. Trust me, in school, I hated group work. I always prefer to do things on my own because this way I know things will not only get done, but they will get done RIGHT. With that being said, working together allows you to open doors to other new bloggers. If you work together you can get a shout out in a sense on someone else’s blog who may have different followers than you do and in doing this allows people to find out about you. A way to work together without it being so formal is by doing awards, awards allows you to share yourself but also share whoever nominated you and whoever you want to nominate. If you want a deeper connection and to work with someone more formally, perhaps contact them and set up an interview with them.
- Have someone write as guest on your blog (scary for those of us who are control freaks)
- Interview other bloggers (a new series I’ve actually started myself)
- Product review (two people review the same product and give their individual review)
Share About Yourself:
This piece of advice gets a bit more personal and may not be for everyone. In this piece of advice I am asking that you open up to your audience in a way that you never have before. Share your real thoughts, share your childhood memories, share your life experiences. Share. Share. Share.
Hope you have found these pieces of advice a bit helpful, don’t forget to check out my other 3 posts on Blogging Advice!
