3 things I wish someone had told me about blogging
1. If you are trying to grow your blog, GET A TWITTER. Seriously, I just barely jumped on the twitter bandwagon a couple months ago and my blog has doubled in size since then. It has been so fun to have silly (and serious) conversations on there. It's also free advertisement because you can post links to your newest blog post and people will actually click on it and read it! 2. Schedule posts when you have the time. I just barely figured this out. Sometimes I have 4-5 posts rolling around in my head and when I have a few hours to spare I'll just crank them out and schedule them for the week. It's way easier for me than to try and remember to post the draft I have in my blogger dashboard. This is also helpful when I go on vacation, then I can still be "blogging" while I'm on a break! In "post settings" click on schedule and then choose the date and time you'd like the post to appear on your blog. Then click "done" and then click "publish'' like you usually would. Jingle Bam! It's awesome sauce. 3. There are NO RULES to blogging. Make money, don't make money. Respond to every comment, only respond to comments that ask questions, or don't respond at all. Pay for a design, learn HTML coding yourself. No one knows what's right for you but you. Decide what you want out of your blog and set yourself some goals. But don't let anyone else tell you how to run your blog. What's the best blog advice you've received?
