I’d love to pick your brain, let me know your most helpful tip(s) for first time bloggers such as myself. The sort of, Blogging 101, Must Know’s or Tips For First Time Bloggers 2018 Edition.

I’ll take any helpful tip(s), big or small, such as how to come up with a name for your blog, how often should you blog, what topics to choose for posts, what is a post, how to create an award, how to create a tag, how to respond to both an award and a tag, what works, what doesn’t. The things that have helped you in your own blogging journey.

As for myself, I’ve been using this one since day one in my short time blogging  …

My most helpful tip(s) for you: Two words, Blogging Journal‘ … yes! I am still a good ‘ole paper and pencil kind of gal and with so much going on, my ‘Blogging Journal’ has come to alleviate some stress. I keep it on my desk with a pencil/pen and a highlighter – sorry kids, I’ll give it back, maybe! I’ll write down ideas throughout the day as they come, half of the time it’s not in the neatest handwriting, but it works!

My second tip: In your ‘Blogging Journal,’ make/label sections using tabs/sticky notes, write down all your online useful website sources, along with any user names and passwords you’ve created related to your blog, I’ve collected a few already and this has been a huge help!

Please leave your most helpful tip(s) in the comments and include your blog, so others can follow along your journey with you!

Happy Thursday!
