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 just 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, fingers crossed.
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. For example, most of the words I am learning are a foreign language to me. I am completely clueless about their meaning, please contain your giggles.
Ok, I made the last one up because that is all I hear in my comment box.
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?
