Top 5 blogging tips you would give to new bloggers?
Write what you feel. Be honest, especially in reviews; don’t be afraid to write your true opinion!
On the flip side, always consider the person you are reviewing for. You should always be honest, but in a kind and professional way.
Follow as many other successful blogs as possible on as many social media networks possible! If you want to be the best at something, you need to find out what they are doing that is making them successful!
Don’t be afraid to support other blogs of your same type! It’s not a competition; we all need other blogger’s to spread our content, and should be prepared to do the same in return. A good blogger is your best source of free publicity!
Do upgrade to a professional domain name; advertisers, publishers, and authors find this more professional and it will gain you more traffic in the long run.
