When I started my blog in July 2018, I never realised how much work being a blogger actually was, looking back I was so naive, I have read other blogs over the years and thought, that's easy I can do that, but I was wrong it takes hours of work, don't get me wrong I love it, it has ups and downs but the sense of satisfaction every time I work and publish any blog post is tremendous. My blog is my online baby and I have to nurture and make it grow. So I have compiled ten top tips to help the blogger from my point of view.
1, First when you write a post make sure it is your own original work, you can get inspiration from other's but never copy anyone else work, a big no no.
2, Watch out for SEO keywords, you will need to include them in your title and in the body of your work, I am not an expert at SEO, but I just include popular words, but don't compromise your creativity for SEO.
3, Make sure your blog page is attractive to reader's, a nice looking font good Photo's and try not to overwhelm your page so it looks to busy, keep it neat and tidy.
4, Something I didn't know at first but promote, promote, promote. Use social media for this twitter is fantastic.
5, If your serious about being a blogger buy you domain first, it doesn't cost much I pay £10.00 a year for mine, I left it a bit late and when I did my DA dropped dramatically.
6, Keep a little pad and pen with you, you never know when creativity strikes, inspiration strikes me at the funniest times, and I write it down in case I forget it.
7, Get very active on social Media, create pages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pintrest where you can promote your blog posts, connect with other bloggers and comment on their work. The Blogging community is so lovely they are diamonds.
8, Be polite and helpful to other's, and answer any comments people leave you.
9, Increase your Domain Authority I am not an expert at this either, but you need to create back links, it's not that easy and requires hard work, share your blog everywhere you can, so people can click and read your content. DA is so important if you want to start working as an influencer. But it does take time.
10, And most importantly, Don't give up, things will go wrong sometimes it happens to us all, but it's so satisfying and all worth it in the end.
