Cool Blogging Tips

Once in a while, I get tagged on a meme I find very useful for my blog. This one for instance, is all about blogging tips. Erisha and Morgan tagged me with this meme. Thanks ladies and I'm so sorry it took me ages to get it up!

Here are the rules

Copy the list, add your tip and pass it on. Add a star beside the tips that you like the best (I'm going to highlight my favourites instead). Sounds easy enough, so here goes:

1.Look, read, and learn.
2.Be, EXCELLENT to each other.
3.Don’t let money change ya!
4.Always reply to your comments.
5.Blog about what you know & love.
6.Don’t use filthy language-buy a dictionary.
7.Blog about something educational
8.Be yourself; others will follow
Don't have too many blogs that will become a chore to maintain
10.Keep it simple, user-friendly, interesting and organized!
11.Keep the blog simple and sweet!!
12.Never ask for link exchange. Blog hop to increase traffic.
13.Don’t clutter your blog with ads all over the place. IT’S IRRITATING.
14.Don’t comment for the sake of commenting. Some looked too fake and its a big turn off!
15.Share something interesting and you will gain more readers.
16.Show that we care to all bloggers, treat each other as friends.
17.Pictures say a million words. Keep them coming!
18.Blogging should be fun or you’ll get tired of it pretty soon.
19.Don’t think people will come to your blog if you’re not willing to pay a visit to them.
20.Everyone loves read short posting and best, illustrated with a picture
21.Try not to publish more than 5 posts in one blog a day. Even if it’s from feed reader, it’s quite hard to digest and catch up reading everything.
22.Blog, the other window to peek into people’s life, minus the trouble. keep a certain level of privacy to yourself.
23.Never tell your readers that you are going on vacation. That’s basically telling them to not visit your blog for a week. Instead, write several posts, and take advantage of the timestamp feature.
24.Try and write with people in mind that are “somewhat similar to you”. Allow your audience to identify with your blog and feel “at home”.
25.The key to a good article is a good introduction. A joke, a question or a picture does wonders.
26.If you are looking to earn an income blogging read and, you will be amazed at what you can learn.
27.Write for yourself first. Remember that it takes time, effort, patience…and above all, daring. The Laidback Buddhist
28.Don’t offer opinions that are not based in the realm of personal knowledge…share yourself and your experiences…they speak louder then words The MiracleProcess
29.Unless I'm a huge fan of your blog, keep your posts short & sweet. Mariuca - Wishing On A Falling Star

30.Don't be shy to make friends, open yourself to others and you'll be amazed with the tremendous responses. A Great Pleasure
31. When you look make sure you SEE, When you listen make sure you HEAR, and when you talk make sure you SPEAK! First Time Dad
32. Don't leave hurtful comments, that is below to what is appropriate, you will hurt the blog owner and might not read or visit your blog ever again. Blessed Sanctuary
32. Keep it real. Keep it fun. LadyJava's Lounge
33. When you’re trying to think of a new great post, or deep in thought on how to make it better, just remember - trying is crap. Trying to think is worthless. Thinking is the greatest single hindrance to a writer. Relax, don’t try to think. Let go of your thought and ego. Only then is real thought able to naturally flow on it’s own, without being consciously driven. Just a little something not to think about:)
34. Be SINCERE and GENUINE! Spiff, The Spaceman
35. Be GENUINE and SINCERE! Anything Goes!

For this tag, I'm going to choose...

Spiff, Nessa, Lady Java, Melody, Jesse, Bless and dear Uncle Sam to share their smart blogging tips with us!
