The 7 Golden Rules of Blogging

I think this blog post by Christian Mihai is very good, and there are tons of good comments too. My own comment is at the bottom but i will past it here too – “Thank you as this is some very good advice, and i will probably reblog this article. I have been blogging for about 2 years and it is a lifesaver for me as i am disabled so am at home most of the time on the pc. I love reading others blogs and do reblog a lot which is easy with WP but sucks with Blogger. I always notify the person or ask permission to reblog a picture or snippet of their writing. I try not to be too personal about myself but do occasionally write such because a blog is Not FB (which i do not even belong to). I do find white on black to be easier to read and always have to put a picture in and try as much as possible to put its source. I have increased my categories though older posts are not labeled thusly. When I go to a new blog the First thing i do is read the About page. And if the layout is taxing (like some irritating back image that is always there you have to read through) then i probably won’t investigate it. Once i find a good blog i read the Whole thing over days and always look at who they follow to find new ones. I think having a calendar is important too for people to keep their place doing that. Thank you again and i will go through your whole blog over the next week or so. Blessings.”

He got an insane number of comments, and I was jealous of his success.

I was quite sure that I would never become a successful blogger. I created some blogs on various platforms, but I never had the patience to build an audience. The thing is that I never asked myself whether I had something worth writing about on an almost daily basis. I think this is something a lot of bloggers struggle with. What’s worth sharing? What’s considered useful information? Also, I believe that a lot of writers simply focus too much on trying to come up with an original idea for a blog, a new…
