I think BBAW has been going great. I’ve found some really great blogs and I’ve also noticed some increased traffic right here. Hurray for My Friend Amy!!
Anyway, today’s task is to write about blogging. Here, I don’t have much to say. I’m very good at the reading part. I spend lots of time reading, often to the detriment of my house (and dare I say, sometimes kids?) I do okay with the reviews part. I think I’ve definitely improved since I started in April, much to do with reading others great reviews out there. As for the blogging aspect, not so good….
Amy has asked us to answer two questions about blogging. I’ll do my best:
What is one thing you wish you knew about blogging when you started or what advice would you give a newbie blogger?
What I wish I knew and still wish I knew was how to add things to my blog. I guess I would say blog design. I got the basics. I can write a review and post it. I can even add links! But, beyond that, I’m pretty hopeless. I try to use the “help,” but I just don’t seem to get it. My friend Stephanie, over at Stephanie’s Written Word, has helped me with some stuff, but I wish I could do more.
As for advice, I’m not sure. I could use some myself. But, I would say that a good way to get “out there” and “meet” other bloggers is to participate in challenges or weekly activities. Of course, I am only participating in one, so far, but I’m a slow joiner.
What is your best blogging tip?
Hmmm…my best blogging tip. Don’t focus too much on how many comments you get. I’ve found that people are reading, but not always commenting!
Well, it’s sad, but true, that’s all I’ve got. I can’t wait to read other posts on this subject. Hopefully, I’ll get some good tips!
