Tips That I Have Tried & Proven

I think blogging, by and large, is basically therapy. And I’m sure, and I know, that there are some terrific bloggers and some legitimate bloggers. But I think, by and large, a huge percentage of people who are blogging are doing it for self-therapy. Mike Barnicle

Please be kind to me for I am stepping out of my comfort zone.  I want to share with you some advice that I am experiencing in my blog.  Wondering how people are finding my blog, watching numbers climb upward.  

So here I go:

1. Keeping it real:

Somewhere in the distant past of this blog I took a chance with my writing and started to write about my journey of being bi – polar.  Nervously I hit the “Publish” button.  Strange as it sounds it felt good.

I have kept writing about myself, once in a while maybe a guest blogger, or re-blog something that speaks to me.  I figure it this way, I know me, I know my strengths, weakness’, can’t go wrong with keeping it real.

2.  Categories and Tags:

Now this subject I am still learning.  I had a mess for I did not understand the concepts.  It took an email to Vee #MILLENNIALLIFECRISIS asked her a question, and she was kind enough to give me a quick tutorial on both concepts.

I am limiting the number of Categories, and trying to use tags more than once.  Example: #Rethinking Scripture is a tag in every post.

3. Interact:

There is one thing I am not hesitant in doing.  That is, I love dialogue, interacting with people. I seem to get an adrenaline rush by it.

I only leave a comment when I feel I have something to offer in the spirit of that post. If I like it I just hit “like”.

For everyone that sends a “like” or a “follow” I take time to check out their blog.  It is amazing where that has led me in the WordPress community.

 The result of interaction is I have begun some online friendships as we share back and forth.

Well, those are the three tips I wanted to share with you! I hope you find them useful!

Do you have some tips to share?  Post them in the comment section so others can read them!

    I enjoy blogging because I love to share what I have learned about God. Sometimes it may look as though I’m leaving tips or encouragement for others, but really the scriptures I post are also very encouraging to me.

    1. Rethinking Scripture

      Thank you!
      It is the same for me when I write about Biblical things. It has to begin with me first.

        Very true, as sometimes it can be easier to give advise and not do the things we advise others to do.

    Really great advice! It can be a little scary putting ourselves out there at first, but so worth it in the long run. It helps me to personally know that there are others who have been through what I may be currently going through.
