Day 4 - Blogging Advice
Here's a few top tips I can share with bloggers.
- Know Your Audience - Know who you are writing for. What type of reader are you trying to reach? Are you writing about cooking, gardening, knitting, motorcycles? I write about books. More specifically romance novels, although I read a wide range of genres and review almost everything that I read I still focus mainly on romance when I blog. I also blog about writing because I know many readers are curious about how books are crafted and what goes on behind the scenes of an author.
- Be Consistent - The number two tip for blogging advice that I always hear is to be consistent, to set a schedule and keep to it. It makes sense. Readers like to know when you'll be posting new content. This is something that I still need to work on. My daily schedule being a mom with four young kids is hectic at best, more like craziness. Although I try to keep a schedule, real life takes priority. I know once my kids are older, I'll have more time so I'm hoping my readers are patient with me during this time.
- Have Fun - I wouldn't blog if I didn't like to do it. When it stops being fun, then I won't do it anymore. My advice is to have fun with what you're writing because if you're not having fun then what's the point?
Do you have blogging tips that you'd like to share? Is there something that you think you need to work on more to become a better blogger?
