I am a blogger in training fo shizel! However, I have been a bloggie nut for several years. I am pretty sure it was my mom that got me started, which in turn, got me addicted. She called one evening and told me to go online and type in cotedetexas.blogspot.com That it was an ultra, fabulouoso blog about home interiors (one of our favorite subjects to talk about with each other). I am sure she used a much more sophisticated adjective than I did, but this is my story and I'm not sophisticated. Boy was she right! I love French Country design and this woman stole my heart, and to boot, she lives in Houston. Yippie! Maybe one day I will be lucky enough to meet her or use her services,
My favorite photo of my mom. We are having tea and pastries in a quaint coffee shop in Holland.
I feel like I am just out of the womb, so to speak, when it comes to blogging
here are a few 'terms' that I was completely clueless about their meanings (please contain your giggles)
ok, I made the last one up because that is all I hear in my comment box
I am a college graduate, but I feel like a pre-schooler when it comes to all this blog stuff.
I will read anything I can get my hands on.
Some of the places I have received amazeballs blogging information (that is Erin's word ;)) is from livinginyellow
a newsletter by email from sideincomeblogging
invaluable information from my supercalifragilisticexpialidocious blog designer littlebluedeerdesign
and inspirations from blogs like morningt, totallytikaa, cheekyinblue, thegardenerscottage, the book Blog Inc, and many more bloggers.
Some bits of information I have learned:
leave comments on other blogs~this could generate traffic for you
pick a topic~set a tone~have clear expectations about your blog (mine would be lifestyle of a mom)
write in your own voice~don't try to copy anyone~be yourself
use catchy, clever titles to draw the bloggie to your blog
tie your title into your written post with stories
end with a question so bloggies will be prompted to write a comment...helloooooo
bloggies like to see pictures~imagery people!
try not to be long winded, so the reader doesn't loose
interest...therefore, I better get done so you will come back :)
Who knew. There are rules to blogging as well.
Like ETIQUETTE rules.
Oh Laud, I hope I haven't broke any!
Well, if I have...
it's not brain surgery
And I haven't killed anyone.
~And neither have these fools~
Any baby-steppers out there like me?
