Hello and Welcome my Dear Dear Friend... It’s always a joy when you stop by to get your cup filled! I have a nice pot of, ‘Tips for the New Blogger with a pinch of... Reminder Tips for Those Who Already Knew.’
Here we go... now Darling... what have you noticed about the online world since becoming a blogger? Yes my Dear... that’s right! It’s an enormous, never ending black hole, an always changing environment, that is filled with... Experts! Everyone is now a pro on any given topic even if they’re not.
They have blogs, they write reviews, they have followers and are a part of some sort of community... they have access to Twitter, Triberr, Pinterest and Facebook, but truly Darling, does any of it matter?
But Caffe, what are you talking about and what does any of this have to do with blogging tips? What am I talking about? Hmmm... was it lipstick? HA! Just kidding... I know we weren’t talking about lipstick my Dear, but speaking of lipstick... have I told you that I found brands that were unleaded? You know me, I couldn’t live without my little tubes of shimmer! I purchased a tube of... wait a second... TIPS not LIPS!!
Now that I got that in order... back to the business of blogging tips.
What I was talking about before I got distracted was this... bloggers are a dime a dozen. There, I said it. So now that I got that out into the open... how are you going to get your blog noticed with gazillions of other blogs out there in the BlogSphere?
Umm, Caffe? Isn’t that what you were going to tell me? Me? OH!...*ahem*... yes of course... because you know me Darling, I’m a MILF! And MILFs can do anything.
Tip #1- Determine what kind of blog you have or would like to have. Nothing muddles my lipstick more than visiting a blog that has no rhyme or reason.
Figure out your passion. Is it cooking? Is it an online family journal? Are you venting? Do you want to share with others your incredible knowledge of sea turtles? I don’t know Darling.. but hey, you might like sea turtles and just not know it!
An example of a blog dedicated to the blog owner’s passion is... The Big Green Bowl. My Dear Friend Michael Ann has a passion for baking up... DELISHousness!! I have to retouch my lipstick every time I visit her.
Tip #2- Write with passion. There’s that word again! But quite frankly Darling, as a reader, when perusing the Blogsphere, the blog that will catch my eye is the blog that I feel the energy jump right off my computer screen and suck me into their world. You know what I’m talking about my Dear, you feel like you’re in the same room, sitting right next to this person like you have been BFF since the beginning of time. That’s passion, that’s fire... and my Darling Friend, Mommy Bags, is a fine example of your best gal pal sitting and drinking a glass of red and nudging you for a refill.
Tip #3- Set yourself apart and be CREATIVE. With a click of a button, one can change the color of the text. With a few adjectives, one can be a storyteller. With an amazing ability to lie create stories, one can become anybody they want... and most choose to become... an expert at what they love best.
I know of a FABulous blog that is constantly thinking outside of the box and has become quite proficient at becoming a lipstick fiend, modern day Zsa Zsa, with the ability to say it like it is. Need I say more about the creative expert that is Caffeinated OC Mommy?
My goodness, my cup is empty and I need to fix my lipstick. I hope I’ve given you something to think about the next time you start a new post or even a new blog. Does any of it matter? Yes Darling, it matters to one person and one person only... your biggest fan, and that fan is you! Have a lovely day my Sweet... Ta Ta!
