If theres one piece of advice I could give to any new blogger it would be 'do what you love'. Theres a lot of blogging advice out there today and if your new to blogging it can be hard to digest all the information available to you. I started sharing tips and tricks posts for bloggers as I struggled to find certain types of information. Sure, I'm no blogging expert and I would never claim to be. I've still got lots to learn but if there's a few words of wisdom I could share with any new blogger it would be these.
Do what you love.
Write about what YOU want to write about. Don't worry about what people think. Be true to yourself.
Do what works for you.
Despite sharing tips/blogging advice, its important to note that these are not rules. If planning, scheduling and all that jazz doesn't work for you then don't do it. Its perfectly OK to do things how you want to do them. If you have your own routine then you should stick to it. Do whatever works for you and don't feel you need to change it.
Keeping things simple.
As above, its fine to think of your blog as a blog. Theres a lot of information on pro blogging these days and seeing your blog as a brand. You really don't need to start thinking about these things if you don't want to. Personally, I see my blog as a place I can escape to and share my thoughts. I cant ever see myself viewing it as a brand or a business but that's ok as not everyone wants to go down that road.
Dont get caught up in what everyone else is doing.
Different things work for different people. I like posting on a daily basis as it works for me and my routine. However, I would never say that a blogger should be posting regularly if its not ideal for them. Blogging should be enjoyable - putting pressure on yourself is never a good thing. Focusing on doing your own thing will make things so much easier in the long run.
