Blogging tips

  • Get used to reading blog posts before you start your own blog. Be a consumer, discover the good blogs and think a bit about what makes them effective.
  • Use comments as a way to dip your toes in the blogosphere.
  • Pictures are powerful – they tell the story, enhance it, and draw people in.
  • Give your blog love, and give your commenters love too. Keep the conversations going.
  • Look for feedback, ask questions and let people know you are interested in their opinions too.
  • Use a notebook or some other device to jot down ideas. Once your brain is in full blogging mode, the ideas will come at all times and you want to catch them if you can.
