The first time I started a blog , I didn't know where it would go . No aim , no idea , nothing at all . I had a gmail account & a basic blog name ( that still rocks, almost) .
Things kept going . It was all started as a daily diary routine and I learned there was MUCH to do expect of slapping words like " Hi , today was so tiring. Thank you & bye" .
I realized I always wanted to do it , I wanted to write . Except of being keen for accounting , writing has always been my keenest keen desire.
But what to write? There are literally million of blog out there that might have much interesting stuff that I could ever do . But it surely doesn't put a stop on me . It really shouldn't .
Then I read some other blogs , met some new people , learned much more things . It's not really like that you came , you saw and conquered . NO!
It's like you came , you saw , you learned , you realized and things went on .Since it's been a little while since I jumped into this pond of blogging , I learned a few things and I wanted to share it with you :
1- Once you start a blog , you never seem to give up . But it's not a job , it's a hobby . So don't lose yourself over it .
2- Put your words out there . No one will EVER know that your blog exists unless you put it out . Indulge in sponsoring other blogs , do guest posts , join a link up . It will all worth at a point .
3- INTERACT . D'ya know why it's all in caps? Because it matters . If you never reply a comment left on your blog or doesn't comment others .
4- Get a clean look . I mean a basic blog design does well too but it should be non-cluttered . Unless you can have a blog designer but honestly , you don't need to blow $$$ on a simple design.
5-Connect . You never know that some blogger has the same taste/style/tacts as you? You can be friend with them but HOW? Emailing needs a alot more courage and points . So move on to Twitter . There you can literally connect with bloggers like you do in a party (though Twitter doesn't provide coke or tea all the way) I am always up on Twitter . That's the way to socialize . At least in my views.
6- Stay original . Blogging is ALL about being original . You can copy stuff and put it on your blog but the charm and uniqueness can't be equal . A blogger is identified with it's content .
7- Keep calm and carry on . It's my favourite phrase to repeat . Your blog isn't established in weeks . It takes time and a lot of hard work . So keep doing what's good and ditch the concerns away (which is really , really hard though)
Phew! That's it .If you've noticed , title is "Blog Talk" which marks the start of a blogging series from moi . Yes yes yes , I always wanted to do it . Blogging about blogging . Woot ! It will be up when I'd have some inspiration or good advice to share . Also , you can share a topic with me that you want to see #yesohyes
