5 Things on Sunday: Blogging Tips

Here’s a fun post for you all out there. Here is a meme brought to you by Reads and Treats.

This week’s topic is blogging tips. Hmm… I wouldn’t classify myself as a “good blogger”. So, I don’t think I’m qualified for dishing out tips. I’ll try my best to sound like I know what I’m doing. Here’s my Top Five Blogging Tips:

  1. It’s okay to not post everyday–Seriously. Trying to crank out posts everyday is exhausting and will just wear you out. Plus, I found that I’m not a huge fan of bloggers that post everyday. It kinda starts to feel like spam. I try to only post about 1-4 times a week.
  2. Have a name for your blog that you like–yes, you want it to be attention grabbing and catchy, but you also should like it.
  3. Try to stick to a content theme–don’t post about everything under sun. It’ll be harder to obtain a hardcore audience that way. That doesn’t mean you can’t post about stuff outside your normal content every once in a while though. I like to do that, it gives your reader a chance to learn more about you.
  4. Consistency is good–readers like consistent posts. While I am terrible at this, try to create a posting schedule. I don’t think you need to stick to it religiously, but having some sort of schedule will help draw more readers in because they can count on you having something for them.
  5. Have fun–don’t make this a chore for you. I’m assuming that this is a hobby for most of you. That’s what it is for me, and if it’s not fun and is starting to feel more like a chore is it really worth doing?

DFTBA and feel free to add your two cents in the comments.
