BBAW Blogging Tips

Today’s assignment from My Friend Amy for Book Blogger Appreciation Week is to answer two questions.

What is one thing you wish you knew about blogging when you started or what advice would you give a newbie blogger?

Now here is a loaded question. What did I wish I had known when I started blogging? I guess I wish I had known exactly how many book bloggers were out there and how compassionate, supportive, and understanding they are. I’ve always been a bit hesitant to share my writing with others, and I initially started this blog for myself, just as a place to record my thoughts on the books I read and to share my love of poetry with others. I really never expected anyone to read my blog, let alone comment. I would say that the first thing to remember as a newbie blogger is that the community is here to support you and that as long as your blog is written by you for your own enjoyment, you are doing a great job.

What is your best blogging tip?

My best blogging tip I can offer is to ask questions of your fellow bloggers, especially if you don’t know how to do something or add gadgets to your blog. That is the best advice I can give bloggers, along with do what you love best.
