Dr Tanya is our host for the Blogging Insights series.
This week she says:
Despite all the blogging advice and courses out there, many bloggers (myself foremost) feel that they made some mistakes when they started out. Today’s discussion involves a recap of the things that we did wrong and what we should have done instead. I am sure this will help lots of fledgling bloggers out there.
What mistakes did you make in the first few months of blogging?
WordPress was my only blog and recommended to me by Hubby as he’d had one going for years.
I remember my first views, likes and the occasional comment, and how excited I was.
As a newbie, my posts were too long so probably boring, and had no graphics.
I often go back and look at my early stuff, and the formatting is dull and unvaried too.
Now I try to keep my posts to around 500 words or less, so enjoy the word limit challenges, use my photos, internet images, prompt photos and suggestions, and try to have variety, including humour, which has perhaps been a little absent lately.
