Do’S And Donts On Blogging

  1. 1. Do’s and Don&apos;ts on blogging<br />By: Christina St. Jean<br />
  2. 2. My objective. . <br />To help let new bloggers know what the right and wrong things to do with blogging.<br />
  3. 3. #1 ! <br />DON’TDon’t Give Up. <br />At times, Blogging can be boring and very draining. But, once you have blogged for a while, you will want to keep going. <br />DO Post Regularly<br />Readers will be more likely to follow your blog if you have a regular posting schedule. <br />
  4. 4. #2 !<br />DO Write Well.<br />It doesn’t matter if your post is long, medium or very short, you must write well. If its badly written, you wont be taken seriously.. <br />Don&apos;t choose one topic then write about something totally different.<br />If your topic is boring or there aren&apos;t enough posts for you to write, either start a new blog or change the existing one<br />
  5. 5. #3 !<br />DO be yourself<br />Why would you want to be someone else besides yourself? People will be able to relate to you much more easily. And it&apos;s so much easier than trying to lie.<br />Don&apos;t approve spam comments!<br />If you notice a spam... trash it and move on.<br />
  6. 6. #4<br />DOWrite about things that actually interest you.<br />Make sure you&apos;re writing posts that you want to write. What&apos;s the point in blogging if you hate doing it? Your blog wont last more than a few months.<br />Don&apos;t worry about being &quot;first”. <br />Some have this little obsession with writing the first comment. And with saying &quot;First!&quot; when you do so. Stop! Just write something useful. <br />
  7. 7. #5 !<br />DOForget about writing daily.<br />You might quit blogging. And you&apos;ll overwhelm your readers. why post daily if you&apos;re not writing decent posts? People suggest that its good to write one great post a week.<br />Don’t have to much clutter.<br />Too many blogs isn’t cute. It&apos;s messy, it slows down your blog, and a lot of them don&apos;t really add value for your readers. Definitely make your blog cleaner. <br />
  8. 8. #6 !<br />DOGet a second opinion.<br />You might like how your blog looks, but others may not. =/<br />This doesn’t really mean you have to change your blog completely. You may just want to rethink. <br />Don&apos;t flood your blog with guest posts.<br />Unless it&apos;s a group blog, many people read the blogs that they do because they like reading from a certain writer. If I wanted to read someone else&apos;s posts all day long, I&apos;d go to their blog. Use guest posts sparingly.<br />
  9. 9. #7 !<br />DOUse guest posts to show an alternative viewpoint or style. <br />Don&apos;t just choose anyone to write for your blog - look for people who write a little differently from you. This can be a great way to add some variety to your blog.<br />Don&apos;t flood your blog with guest posts.<br />
  10. 10. #8 !<br />Don&apos;toverdo it.<br />If you are networking more than you&apos;re blogging, you may need to adjust the balance. <br />DORead other blogs<br />Reading others blogs is a good way to see what others are saying, and you can get into some good discussions too. Add a comment if you have something to say. Don’t be scared.!<br />
  11. 11. #9!<br />Don&apos;t bump great posts down the page.<br />If you just posted something that&apos;s attracting a lot of comments, let it run for a bit. There&apos;s nothing worse than posting something new just as the previous post was getting started, and potentially killing the comments <br />DOTake a break.<br />If you are out of ideas, don&apos;t force yourself to write posts because chances are, they won&apos;t be to good. Take some time away from your blog and you&apos;ll come back with a fresh outlook.<br />
  12. 12. #10 !<br />Don&apos;t use the word blog without realizing what it means.<br />Blog is a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video.<br />DO Allow yourself some breathing room.<br />If you&apos;re posting frequently, don&apos;t cram the posts so close together that a last minute post wouldn&apos;t fit in anywhere. <br />
