5 Things I Wish I knew At The Start | Blogging

blogging, List, tips,

Over the time that I have been blogging I have learnt a few things that really help to make a blog look better and get more attention. Some of these I have seen in other blogs and some I have found myself along the way. I thought today I would tell you guys a few tips that I wish I knew when I first started blogging.

  1. A little goes a long way - Posts don't have to be paragraphs long with super super detail. I love reading bullet point posts and lists. 
  2. Labels are important - These help people who search for a specific topic find your post which means more page views 
  3. The blogging community isn't scary- I didn't start taking part in the blogging community until recently because I didn't know if I really fitted in, but since I have I have met so many lovely people and gained some lovely followers so don't be scared to put your self out there. 
  4. Add properties to your photos - By copying your labels into the Properties tab on your photos, when someone searches a topic your photo can appear leading them to your blog which means more page views 
  5. You can post as much or as little as you want - Some times I can feel like I need to post more frequently because all of my favourite bloggers do but if you gave a good following, it won't matter how often you post they will still be there to read them. 
I have learnt a lot since I first started blogging 3 years ago and now that I am in the full swing of it frequently trying to up my blogging game so I am sure I am going to learn even more. Feel free to comment anything you wish you knew at the start!

    1. We're in the same boat then haha yeah I'm still learning things now x

  4. I wish I had known that once you replace your .blogspot.com subdomain with a purchased domain, you can't change it again (without a lot of hassle). This means making sure you love your blog name and domain is super important!

    1. I didn't know that either! Thanks for sharing :) x

  5. I wish I had know this too! Especially that a little goes a long way - you don't need to write an endless post that's 100% perfect, it's better to just get it out there and learn from it :)
