Last night i was having a few drinks with some friends at home and they where bombarding me with all sorts of questions about what i do really in relation to "Blogging" ~ Really they think i am at my computer all day "Um hello i don't think so"!
Apart from being up at the crack of dawn day in and day out getting things ready for either Chloe or Helping Dion get up for his shower, running around doing all sorts of errends.
I end up in bed rather late say anywhere from 11pm some nights others 4am (Depends if Dion is having a rough night. So i am used to getting no sleep or between 4-5 here or there.
So i gave them a quick Blogging 101 lesson , how i see it.
MY POINT OF VIEW
Firstly lets hope i am in the right niche! I blog around myself being personal,lifestyle and STHM
So i guess i do fit those categories . No i don't stick to just one topic mine vary from week to week or day to day depends .Some months ago i wrote about my teeth for nearly 2 weeks every third day. I even got some calls from dental but alas i still can't go it's just a phobia i have to live with.
USE YOUR OWN VOICE
When i started to blog three years ago i had no idea how i would write i tried to act all like a professional and such but it just was not me and the online friends ~ Before i met loads of you.
said really you sound so professional ~ But i really wasn't "who am i kidding " So here i am in my own voice loads of grammar /spelling /punctuation wrong etc... But that';s me i am trying to improve heh!
I know you all have heard the saying "A picture is worth thousand words" Well it is or can be
most of your pictures can actually nearly tell you a story . So putting one of your photos on the blog can do wanders.
There are free sites for you to use
There are others but if you use ones that are not free please always give credit to the person who's picture it belongs too. It just is the right thing to do.
WRITE YOUR OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCES
Always write your own ideas and your experiences you have had in life.
MUSIC AND FLASHING LIGHTS
Don't know about you but it's a distraction for me to hear music and see flashing lights on blogs (could be just me) I tend to move on if i see blogs that have way too much flashing ~ Just annoys the shit out of me and my eyes tend to hurt as well.
MAKE THEM LAUGH
yes some of my blog post are unsettling and about me and the hubstar ,his medical rare condition i know it can be rather upsetting but i do have funny posts too so i am not always too serious about stuff.
Guest blogging is an awesome way to help others shine .Also gives you a little break so you can get other crap done. Gives the guest blogger a great plug sending traffic to your and their blogs.
I have quite a few guest bloggers on mine ~ also soon i will have a tab for Guest bloggers *ahem so that if you want to be a guest here on A Dose of Dannie (hint) you can lol....
PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE
There are great forums and such to really put yourself out there for the PR rader.
here are just a couple there are loads more all you have to do is look around.
1)Aussie bloggers directory
2)Blogs and PR
I think that will do for now maybe next week will do more on Social media on How I see things
You can find me in loads of places like Face book Twitter instagram pinterest linked in Google+
