Dr Tanya has asked for 3 tips for new bloggers in her Blogging Insights series.
Pensitivity101 will be seven years old on September 1st. It was Hubby who got me started and he told me to have fun.
1. Have fun.
That is the main thing, because if you don’t enjoy it, it will come out in your writing.
You can write about anything, any length, everyone is different, but each of us has something of interest to someone else. Be honest, be yourself, but have fun.
2. Don’t try to be too clever or complicated.
Graphics and photographs are great in a post, but don’t get carried away as they can detract from your writing if they are too big or too many. When you’re just starting out, write about things you’re familiar with, the heavier in depth stuff can all come later.
Be polite. Post comments on other bloggers’ sites if something has interested you, and acknowledge any that come into yours. Many bloggers love the interaction, myself included, it gets you recognised, and can also give you more tips as to how to develop your blog in your own style.
I’ll also add that if there is something you’re not sure about in your blog or you’re having a few problems, don’t be afraid to ask. You’ll be surprised how many people have experienced the same things!
