I’ve been remiss in not specifying what information you can get from my blog posts.
I posted a link to another blog post and it’s kind of blown up my blog. I love it! So searching through the comments and replies, I decided that there are lots of people who want to blog, but may be intimidated or worried that they don’t have the right stuff.
So, today I’m going to share the #onelittlesecretfornewbiebloggers. So lets do a countdown. I’ve always wanted to do a post like this, no I’m not David Letterman, but I think lists are fun.
Here we go….. The top ten ways to start a blog and keep it going even when you think you are yelling to the whole world and everyone has left for another planet. Whew! That’s a long title.
#10 Do lots and lots of research, check out other blogs, check out google, and all the other search tools to see what kind of competition you have out there. Be sure to stress yourself out and worry that your blog will never be seen. Trust me, this is the first step.
#9 Pay lots and lots money to professional blog/website gurus so you’ll make sure that all the right “tools” have been programed into your site for maximum exposure.
#8 Spend months researching, re-writing, rejecting and regurgitating your blog posts, so that the information is no longer relevant and out of date.
#7 Post erratically, don’t be consistent, so that the few followers you do have will never be able to find your posts in the huge blogosphere.
#6 Make sure you post long rambling posts that make no sense to your readers, or anyone else, including you.
#5 Don’t tell anyone you know that you are writing a blog, the more anonymous you can remain… the better
#4 Fill your posts with tons of non-relevant pictures and videos that have nothing to do with your post.
#3 Never ever use keywords.
#2 Overuse keywords so that your post doesn’t make any sense.
#1 Whatever you do, don’t practice your craft. Make sure it’s unusually confusing, and has spelling and grammar errors. Don’t write everyday to get better.
In short, non of this is true. My best advice for a #newbieblogger is to #write #blog #DOIT!
