5 Tips For New Bloggers

I am taking part in the #bundlemarathon where every Monday until December 29th there will be a post set by @bundlemag if you would like more info check it out here: http://bundlemag.com/bundle-marathon-blogging-ideas/

This weeks topic is tips for new bloggers, I have been blogging on and off since 2010 and have seen a lot of change in that time. I am by no means an expert on this subject but there are a few tips I have picked up along the way.

1) Consistency is key, you need to be blogging frequently or else you will lose your audience. People like your blog for a reason and will only keep stopping by if you are actually posting. Try and settle into some kind of routine.

2) Get involved with the blogging community, other bloggers aren't your competition they are your biggest allies. Reach out to them because not only will they be able to help you but they are also people that understand your hobby and your obsession with taking photo's of everything!

3) Write about the things you really love and your passion will shine through, don't just blog about something for the sake of producing a post. You need to feel the enthusiasm for your subject or your writing won't seem interesting.

4) Write as much as possible when the mood takes you and then schedule the posts for the upcoming days/weeks. You have to accept that you will have days when you can't find inspiration no matter how hard you look. It's normal and it happens to all of us, so if every once in a while you are over flowing with ideas, sit down and get them all written out so it takes the pressure off for the times when you feel like you will never have an idea again for as long as you live (trust me this happens to me all the time!)

5) Be gracious, people don't have to read and follow you so make sure you are grateful for the ones that do and be nice to them. If they are sweet enough to leave comments or tweet you, then do your best to reply. If you don't you may have lost that reader forever.

Thanks for reading! See you next Monday for the next #bundlemarathon post!
