Six Things You Should Never Say To A Blogger

Life with Spina Bifida

Things you should never say to a blogger (4)

When most people visit a blog unless they are bloggers themselves they will never truly understand the amount of work it takes to build a successful blog. For that reason, bloggers work often times are underappreciated because most people think we whip blog posts up in five minutes. It is our job to make blogging look easy and although it may look like we whipped these posts up in five minutes I assure you we did not and it probably took way longer than it appears. Saying comments like blogging is not that hard can come off as rude or insensitive and can really hurt someone’s feelings. Want to show a blogger you appreciate what they do? It is really simple avoid saying these things and you are on the right path to showing your favorite blogger your appreciation without even trying.

5 Things To Always Have In Your Carry-On

I’ve been travelling a lot lately and I’ve noticed that there are some things that you just absolutely need to carry with you- and no I learned the hard way that these do not include all 7 Harry Potter books…

1. Hand sanitizer and tissues- Let’s be honest, travelling isn’t the most hygienic thing ever and it’s a really good idea to have some sanitizer and tissues with you because you never know when you’ll need them. Plus, it’s always a good idea to sanitize your hands before eating something even if you are using cutlery.

2. An extra pair of clothes- In case, and this is the worst case scenario, you end up losing your luggage or exchanging it by mistake or it comes later on it’s good to have a fresh pair of clothes with you because you will want to freshen up after your journey.

3. Your cellphone– Our lives revolve around technology these days and your cellphone is probably the most important one of all. It has all your information, contacts etc and you do not want to end up losing it so always keep it with you. Plus, you never know when you might need it!

4. Headphones- This is just in case you end up sitting next to someone a little too friendly. Also listening to music is a good distraction if you get travel anxiety.

5. Makeup- You are at some point going to need a touch up so remember to carry some makeup products with you. Not all your makeup of course but just the 5/6 items you are likely to use that day. If you don’t wear makeup carry some moisturizer because your skin can really dry out during a long journey!

How To Find The Perfect Name For Your Blog

When I first started blogging it took me like a month to come up with a good name for the blog. I didn’t even know exactly what I wanted to write about so I didn’t know how exactly to come up with a good name. Anyway, here’s a few tips to help you find the perfect name for your blog!

  1. Topics and niches- If you are sure about what you’re going to be writing about you may want to add something about it in your title. For example, if you are writing about cooking you can have food/recipes/foodie on your title to let your audience know what the blog is about. If you’re not sure what you want to write about (which is totally okay!) or you want to write about multiple topics (which again is totally okay!) then try finding a name that is catchy but doesn’t have any specific topics in the name like lifesfinewhine… 😂😉
  2. Google- Google is definitely your best friend when it comes to finding a domain name! The truth is when you start out you really don’t know much about blogging and blog names so try Google popular blog names to give you an idea of what to call yours! Again if you know what topic/s you’re going to be writing on, Google blogs on that topic/s and get some inspiration from their names!
  3. Talk to others- Talk to people around you and ask them for ideas! Even if they’re not directly involved with your blog I’m sure they’ll be happy to help and may actually have some really great ideas!
  4. Be unique and creative- I know I just said to get inspired by other blogs but remember not to steal their name or use something super similar! Use something unique so that people can remember it and it’s the first thing that comes up when people Google it.
  5. Name generating sites- If you still can’t come up with a name there are lots of sites online that will help you find a name for free so be sure to check them out!

How To Get More Followers On Your Blog For Free

When I started out I had no idea how to get more traffic or followers and it was kind of a tough learning process. I actually almost gave up on my blog and if it hadn’t been for those two followers I had I may have actually given up on blogging altogether which is a scary thought! But thankfully I kept blogging and I eventually started gaining followers and got more traffic. Here are some of the ways I did that:

Reach Out- If you want other bloggers to view your posts and leave you likes, comments and follows you should be doing the same! Especially if you’re just starting out it’s a good idea to check out other peoples blogs- not only will you learn new things from them you’ll also start getting your own name out there. It helps to leave comments because then they’ll notice you and most likely check out your blog as well. However, make sure you don’t just like posts for the sake of it and you don’t just follow random people for follow backs because it’s important to be authentic and get real followers who will engage.

Be Regular- It’s so important to post regularly because your traffic and number of followers will drop as soon as you stop posting regularly. And if you post regularly you’ll notice a rise in likes and followers. I learnt that the hard way because I spent a long time posting randomly and not getting a lot of follows/likes but as soon as I started posting regularly I was like “OMG”.

Image result for be regular gif

Tags Are Important- Make sure to Google before you post to see what the most viewed tags on WordPress and most Goggled words are so you can add some of the relevant ones to the tags on your post. But don’t add random irrelevant tags because honestly that’s just annoying.

Image result for tag gif

What’s your niche?- Make sure to like and follow bloggers who write about the same or similar topic/topics because they are way more likely to follow you back. Also search some relevant tags on your reader to find similar blogs!

Keep It Real- Keep your writing honest because people can tell when you’re being fake or lying and no one really wants to read a blog like that. People will appreciate your writing more if it’s honest and you’re not afraid to express your opinions and they’ll be more likely to give you a follow!

Image result for keep it real gif

Have Fun With It!- Honestly, don’t stress out too much about followers and likes because at the end of the day you should enjoy what you do and if you write just for the likes/follows it will kind of suck the fun out of blogging.
