The Daydreamer Challenge – Day 4 – Blogging tips
I know when it comes to blogs I really enjoy reading it is when something is genuine and usually amusing, I also like pretty pictures, but they should have a reference, for instance why put up a image of a cat playing piano if you are discussing taking a dog for a walk? It’s just not relevant. So I try and emulate that sort of blog, I write from the heart, not always what people want to read, but what I want to get out……….I have found that if you write what you feel there are so many people out there who have been there, know exactly how you feel and can sympathize or at least empathize with you. If it’s a funny tale, often people tell you it brightened their day.
Just because you are new it doesn’t mean you do not have something to offer. I found one of the best things I did when I first started blogging was Blog101 and Photo101, I learnt so many things about blogging and photography, I also ‘met’ a lot of very interesting people who in turn taught me more. I picked up lots of readers and made many new friends. Some people say if you do not want people to comment on ‘it’ don’t put it on Social Media, however I find that I can write things on my Blog, that I would not necessarily put on SM like Twitter or Facebook. I know that some people like to link all of it together, but I must admit due to my ‘venting’ on my blog I don’t tend to put it on SM.
So I guess what I am trying to say it keep it real, make it appealing and don’t forget a picture is worth a 1,000 words.
