Top 20 Blogging Tips

Top 20 Tips for Blogging

Within blog chats a lot of questions revolve around advice, tips and guidance for bloggers. Today I thought I would note down 20 of my favourites that may help offer guidance when you’re having a tough time in the blogging spectrum.

  1. Be yourself, don’t try to be anyone else. Copying is not cool.
  2. Know who you are targeting when writing your blog posts. For example, LFTN focusses on giving advice, giving tips and creating positivity. Think about refocussing your content.
  3. But it’s okay to do other things once in a while! Readers like variety now and again, it keeps things fresh.
  4. Don’t be afraid of working with brands or doing sponsored posts. As long as you are true to yourself, there’s nothing wrong with accepting compensation. Here’s an amazing article on the taboo of sponsored posts by Wonderful You.
  5. Be honest with your readers.
  6. Don’t get too personal online. There’s being honest and being too honest.
  7. Need a break? Take one. Blogging can get stressful and takes time so don’t over do it!
  8. Post regularly and consistently.
  9. Write about what makes you happy, not what will make you popular.
  10. Talk about current topics…
  11. But do something a bit different with them. Make your post stand out!
  12. You don’t have to love all blogs or bloggers. If you don’t like the content, just ignore it. We are all different!
  13. However, you should support the fact that we are all in the same boat, so be nice!
  14. Appreciate your readers. Your blog wouldn’t be successful without them.
  15. Get involved with blogging communities online, blog chats are great for this!
  16. Understand why you want to blog, what it is you love about it and why you want to continue to do well at it.
  17. Followers aren’t everything. The followers will grow as your content does, it doesn’t happen over night.
  18. Sharing the love is important to other bloggers. Love a blog? Tell them!
  19. Fake it ’til you make it. But not too much, you’ll look a bit of a fraud! Here’s a good article on how to do it right by The Wonder Forest.
  20. Communicate with the blogging community via honest, positive comments. It’s a good way of getting yourself out there and will help other bloggers’ confidence levels ๐Ÿ™‚
