I am one of those people who likes to give something back (without sounding self-righteous) to the people who have followed me so far on this journey . There are just over twenty of you and well, thanks for following, commenting and liking.
Having entered the blogging game quite recently some would probably think who is he to give advice. But here I am so shut up and take it*.
*What ‘it’ is I don’t quite know , and I am sorry for telling you to shut up.
This is my version of a clip show, recapping over the last entries and reflecting slightly.
First of all, no matter what you write about, people will always read about a popular subject. For instance Episode 7 of my first series : Winter is coming. At the time was my most popular entry. Why? Because Game of Thrones is so damn popular, people will want to read about it and particularly what I have to say.
Example 2: A recent entry about another potential Harry Potter book . I read this on a rather weak news entry online and put my own opinion into it. The results were comments and more followers.
Blogging is becoming a more common thing and anyone can do it. My sole reason is to build a following that will one day buy my first book when it gets published. There is no IF in that statement.
Continuing with advice, I would suggest that blogging to begin with should be kept to a weekly occurrence. That’s just enough time so that people won’t forget you exist and allows time for you to think about putting together meaningful blogs.
The last few weeks material for me has been few and far between, but sometimes a short blog is enough. My previous outing earned me a bigger following and it was pretty light, but people commented and people clicked follow and for that I thank you all. Some even interacted and I am truly thankful for that.
The hardest part when it comes to blogging is staying regular and staying readable, they are my two pillars. They hold up my Hall of Information!
When it comes to titles, most of the time they are pivotal to who will read your stuff. Last week my title contained the word ‘Porn’. Much like rain and wet, porn and the internet will always be best of friends. Something so simple will make or break whether or not an entry gets reads.
I will adapt some of this post and place it in the resources section. If any one from the class would like to add anything then do comment.
