Blogging Advice

Another prompt I really liked today:

 I'm new to blogging. What pointers would you give me to become a good blogger.? Do you think pictures are important in a blog? Music? Links to information?

I've been blogging for 12 years, although not on Writing.com. My first blog was on deadjournal (Ramblings of a Rebel) that I still update occasionally. I was 13 years old when I started blogging; back then, it was essentially an internet diary. Over the years as I use Writing.com and Blogger more now (and use Blogger as a way to make some money), I've found advice and pictures go a long way. Of course, it helps if the advice has some research and some links. People generally like my pictures and writing as well. From time to time I will do music reviews to change it up a bit. I would say, do whatever you feel like. Be you. If you want to just blog about your writing or music only or pictures only, do it! Don't limit yourself! I have a myriad of interests and I like to blog about them. In fact, blogging helps me put together travel books because that's where I usually jot down plans. Just be you.

  1. 12 years!? That's about half your life, isn't it?

    1. Yep! In the early 2000s, kids under 13 had to get their parents to sign a paper allowing them to use certain sites (I remember encountering this with my first Neopets account in 2000 when I was 11... had to have my parents sign giving me permission). So, on July 5, 2002, the day after I turned 13 I signed up for a lot of things on the web. I'm not sure how I heard about Deadjournal and surprisingly for its content, it had the 13+ rule... so I thought I'd give it a try. Been blogging ever since. :D

    1. Yus! It's so funny to read my posts from when I was 13. :p I've grown as a writer since then and made many friends over the years.
