Tagged!: Blogging Tips To Share

Saturday, September 29, 2007

I've been tagged again by Jon at Chimeric Day Dreams. I like this tag. I think that it is definitely a community booster. Although we are all bloggers, we are also blog readers. This ought to tell each of us what we enjoy/dislike as we visit each others blogs.

The idea is to copy the list, star your favorite ones, add your own tip at the very end, and then pass it on.

1. Look, read, and learn.
2. Be, EXCELLENT to each other.
3. Don’t let money change ya!
4. Always reply to your comments.
*5. Blog about what you know & love.
6. Don’t use filthy language-buy a dictionary.
7. Blog about something educational.
8. Be yourself; others will follow.
9. Don’t have too many blogs that will become a chore to maintain.
*10. Keep it simple, user-friendly, interesting and organized!
11. Keep the blog simple and sweet!!!
12. Share with others your thoughts and don’t be shy!
13. Never ask for link exchange. Blog hop to increase traffic.
*14. Don’t clutter your blog with ads all over the place. IT’S IRRITATING.
15. Don’t comment for the sake of commenting. Some looked too fake and its a big turn off!
16. Share something interesting and you will gain more readers.
17. Show that we care to all bloggers, treat each other as friends.
18. Pictures say a million words. Keep them coming!
19. Blogging should be fun or you’ll get tired of it pretty soon.
*20. Don’t think people will come to your blog if you’re not willing to pay a visit to them.
21. Everyone loves read short posting and best, illustrated with a picture.
22. Try not to publish more than 5 posts in one blog a day. Even if it’s from feed reader, it’s quite hard to digest and catch up reading everything.
23. Blog: the other window to peek into people’s life, minus the trouble. Keep a certain level of privacy to yourself.
24. Never tell your readers that you are going on vacation. That’s basically telling them to not visit your blog for a week. Instead, write several posts, and take advantage of the timestamp feature.
*25. Try and write with people in mind that are “somewhat similar to you”. Allow your audience to identify with your blog and feel “at home”.
26. The key to a good article is a good introduction. A joke, a question or a picture does wonders.
27. If you are looking to earn an income blogging read StevePavlina.com and Problogger.net, you will be amazed at what you can learn.
28. Write for yourself first. Remember that it takes time, effort, patience…and above all, daring.
29. Use Google Alerts for immediate alerts of news and/or blog posts about topics you specify, clip those that interest you into Google Notebook (it also copies the URLS for reference). - Chimeric Day Dreams
30. Invite your reader to read and not to search/hunt your blog. Have some type of logic in the organization of your blog so that it flows for the reader and allows for easy navigation. Some blogs are so full of blog related minutiae that the actual posts are lost is the midst. - Black Tennis Pro's

I'd like to see blogging tips from:

Poetic Sista - A passionate writer, she truly blogs from the heart and soul.
Black In Business - JD is definitely a man who is supportive of others, he's professional and someone who looks to tomorrow.
Chessnoid - I truly enjoy the variety of this writer. From the everyday to the unexpected.
Electronic Village - Can there be blogging with more commitment than this blog? Passion, dedication, relevance, etc. Truly one of the best blogs.
Middle Zone Musings - A writer that appeals to the 'everydayness' of life, and to the whimsy of life. Very provocative.
