My Advice For Beginner Bloggers

The other day I realised I haven't really posted anything for about a week or two so at first I was going to talk about me becoming more of an ambivert than an extrovert but I read it over and decided it was boring so I decided to talk about advice.

Now although I think my advice is rubbish, my friends think its good when they ask for it so hopefully what I have to say wont be to bad.

I get asked quite a lot for advice/tips by people that have just started blogs and although I'm not some super popular award winning blogger but I decided to give it a try because you never know, it might actually help someone.

So I looked for the most popular questions asked by new bloggers and I will try to answer them to the best of my abilities.

How To Get More Blog Traffic: Google+ is your friend, take advantage of it by joining teenage blog communities as well as guest post on other blogs and make friends with other bloggers. It helps get your blog recognised a little more, plus who said joining a community is bad?

How To Make Your Blog Look Professional: This is a question I had to search everyday because I know appearance is a key thing to getting blog followers so if your blog looks good and has good content, you're guaranteed so at least spark someone's interest. I don't think my blog looks 100% professional just yet however I am still working on it, for me I removed all the blogger features such as the main text background and grey border.
I also took some add ons from places such as ShabbyBlogs.
They specialise in customized blog features such as backgrounds, buttons and post titles etc.

How To Find Your Blogging Topic: More or less, most blogs have a specific topic they blog about such as cooking, beauty, anecdotes, travel or what not, I don't really have a specific topic nor do I want to because I don't really want to limit myself but for people that want to find their topic I suggest blogging about something your're interested in but make sure its something you're really interested in because you don't want to have to keep talking about something you only have a mild interest in because I think it'd get boring after a while. If you can't think of anything in particular, think of what you want to represented for such as advice, humour or helping teenagers.

How To Stay On Task With Your Blog Posts: This is something I probably have no experience in talking about because I'm currently procrastinating doing holiday homework but with my blog (something that actually matters to me) I made a diary primarily for my blog ideas so whenever I don't know what I talk about I check my diary. However most of my ideas are spontaneous these days as I usually come up with them on the spot.
For others I say, don't be afraid to look around other blogs and learn new ideas as well as research ideas.

That's it!
That's my advice!
Let me know In the comments if you have any other questions.
Bye!

  1. I think this advice is really good for beginner bloggers. I would also suggest to write in a 'voice' that you would use when talking to your friends, so that you are writing as yourself, and try to post regularly, like once a week :)
