Tips For General Blogging

Standard

Day 10:

1) Try to respond to any comments made on your blog, even if it is just a thank you.

2) Blog regularly; I intend to blog daily, others blog weekly.  The trick is to be consistent with your blogging.  Kristin Lamb says, ” Do quality over quantity.”

3) Blogging is considered author training.  It makes you write good content, so you have to pace yourself.  You do not want to write and write until you are sick of it.  I believe that is called burn out.

4) Use Status Updates, participating in conversations is essential to having people recognize you are around.  It is a powerful tool, and you will use it to connect with, befriend, and mobilize your influencers.

5) Give people slices of your life, in your blog.  It makes the blogger appear more human to their reader.

6) When you connect with someone, conversation is the most powerful tool you have.

7) Make sure that content you post is entertaining or informative.  It will be noticed if you are putting out good current information or just fluff and junk.

8) Be good to all those who are good to you.  If you see someone reposting your content and they are trying to build a following, then help them.  Networks are hard to build and we all need as much help as possible.

9)Always be positive, and I know sometimes that is hard to do. Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar said, “you can get everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”  You want the people who read your blog to associate you with being positive.

I hope this information from Kristine Lambs book, “We Are Not Alone, The Writers Guide to Social Media is as helpful to you as it is to me.  I believe the more information we can share with each other, the better writers we will become.  That’s my two cents for today.

About shirleymclain930

I am a retired RN enjoying my retirement to the fullest. I like adventure and travel and making friends. I have 6 dogs and 1 cats. They are like having a house full of three years olds. They are a large part of my life and I can't imagine them not being around. I spend most of my time sitting in front of my computer working on my latest book or talking about Essential Oils. On the personal side, I'm married to a wonderful man who spoils me and I love it. I am very much a country girl. I love living on our 5 acres on Pole Cat Creek watching the deer and other animals occasionally stick their​ heads out of the trees. It's a fun life.
