Let's Talk Blogging!

We've been doing a great job talking about books, but what about blogging? It's half of what we do. What better way to show our appreciation than to share our very best tips.

So, today, I ask you to answer two questions in any way you please...

What is one thing you wish you knew about blogging when you started or what advice would you give a newbie blogger?

What is your best blogging tip?

I hope a lot of you participate, because I can't wait to see what you have to say. I'm always looking for more tips. As usual, please please leave a link to your specific post and not your general URL. And link back to this specific post. There may be a surprise giveaway for participants. ;)

Chris said...

Am I losing it? Wasn't there a Mr Linky? (Please say there was so I don't question my sanity.)

Anyway here is is again:

As a wet-behind-the-ears book blogger (just started a few months ago), I've learned:
Don't fret or obsess about how often you post or how many readers you have (or more likely, don't have) - blog because you are frickin' obsessed with books!
Oh, and - only post before or after work, or on a break! So I'll be posting on this subject during my morning break at http://evasbookaddiction.blogspot.com

Here's where I offer tips that make it sound like I know what I'm doing. (Haha, I've fooled you all!)

I'm late, but my resposne is here.

Jeanne said...

I haven't had power this week, so I'm really late. But this is yet another great way to get acquainted with all the many book blogs I haven't yet read.

My tip is visit other blogs that deal with your topic and feature links to appropriate posts. Then contact the blogger and let them know. Most bloggers will visit your blog and reciprocate expanding readers exponentially.
