Blogging Tips

October 14, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Can’t slep hence the title of this post. I thought I should give a few tips, some obvious things of course to the new comers as well as some old geezers although most of us know such information.

  • Most bloggers read the posts during weekdays, simply because the masses of them are working adults who would prefer to pass a few minutes in their day by reading what others are writing, hence Weekend posts don’t usually get much attention.
  • Try to shorten posts (I for one can never write really short posts and therefore many complain yes I know I am going to do it again).
  • Whenever citing information not yours, ALWAYS LINK BACK TO THE ORIGINAL (I have seen many plaigarized posts and I can’t help but feel pissed because the person who actually wrote is isn’t getting the credit he/she deserves).
  • Don’t get too scientific in your posts (Not many of the readers are Rocket Scientists and I for one perfer fluffy posts and a few short informative ones rather than filled with technical information).
  • If you have something nice to say to someone, SAY IT, if not THEN SHUSH! (There is always that tiny button in the corner with an (x) that can save your bum and let others exist in peace as well).
  • Many people read what you write yet don’t comment, its because sometimes nothing can be added or said that another person hasn’t said much.
  • Pictures help alot when you post, a picture is worth a thousand words so cut long posts short with pictures ;P
  • Don’t ever overcrowd your template with un-needed stuff, sometimes a reader gets too frustrated from the way the blog is displayed and just closes it without reading (I do it sometimes, I hate unaligned sites and such).
  • Never attempt to write lists late at night when you should be sleeping because this only proves that you are somewhat delusional.

And now I’m off to bed, hopefully going to sleep this time instead of stay up :/

    Stallion, Problem with RSS Feeds is that day by day we get new blogs and then you have to add those new ones and that in itself is as tiring as the entire going through it situation lol.
