Blogging Tips: What I Know Now – Nina Badzin’s Blog.
I usually find more than one article/post over at The Daily Post (by the wordpress people) that I really enjoy and I can always find tips & posts on learning the ins and outs of WordPress. I wanted to share one such gem with anyone who cares to have a look see.
Nina Badzin’s blog is well written and enjoyable to read, yes…but it’s also informative without boring you into a keyboard coma.
I’m sure several people can agree with the post I’ve linked here, I sure can. One that really struck me was “What I Thought About Audience”…it seems a given that your family and friends would read your damn blog-right? Wrong!
What is up with that? You send links, they ignore them. Anyway – give it a peek & if you want let me know what you think = )
WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT AUDIENCE: Family and friends would read my blog.
What I know now: They mostly don’t, not even my husband who gets a mention in nearly every post. But I’m 100% okay with that. In my first few weeks of blogging, I desperately sent links to my family and friends, begging them to “like” posts on Facebook and all the other nonsense that makes people curse you. I’m extremely grateful to any of my friends and family members who read the blog, but I do not expect it at all. The majority of my traffic come from other bloggers, Twitter friends, writers and even Google. Also, something for newbies to consider: I think I got decent traffic rather quickly because I was on Twitter for about nine months before I started a blog. In fact, my first post ever was about cheating on Twitter with WordPress.
Found a very cool post on this cool blog:
30-Day Blog Challenge
Starting today, I’m beginning the 30-Day Blog Challenge. I honestly can’t remember where I found this, as it’s been sitting in my drafts folder for at least 6 months. It is highly possible that I just Googled “blog prompts” and found it. If you want to join in, feel free. And if it came from you and you’re here reading this, please let me know and I’ll link back to you (of course, that would have to mean I’m a reader of your blog…).
…and here was my comment reply…
I love this, so glad you posted it! I’m using you to do the ‘link to another blog’ just so ya know…and I’m going to kick my own butt to answer a question a day.
In the interest of being anal and wanting each day to have it’s own post, Day 1 will be in the following post.
