Blogging Advice: 5 Don'ts Of Blogging

Hello everyone! I'm officially back into the flow of things. I will be commenting, replying, and planning ahead! Starting tomorrow. Okay nah, but I didn't know what to post again, but I figured it out! I haven't done a Blogging Advice post in forever so here it is. The Don't of Blogging!!

 
 
1. Over promoting in the comments section.
 
Remember in my last Blogging Advice post when I talked about commenting? And then I talked about promoting?
 
I promote, and many other bloggers promote, with a link. Just a nice subtle link. If you're really good, maybe another subtle hint asking someone to visit your blog like:
 
"Hey I did a post similar like this earlier! *gives link*" But even more subtler than that. I've seen comments that say something like this:
 
"Nice post. Hey, I think you missed my recent post, go check it out and leave a comment!" MY BLOG IS NOT A BILLBOARD. Go do your extravagant promoting somewhere else buddy.
 
2. CRAZY BIG LETTERS WITH CRAZY STUFF
 
How hard was it to read that, huh? Teeny tiny letters aren't that great either. Way too big or small and extremely hard to read. I don't think anyone would want to read a blog like that.
 
3. Think about the numbers
 
Who cares if you have 4 followers or 400 followers, well you shouldn't! Blog for happiness, not for fame. Sure, it's awesome to have 400 followers, but it doesn't really matter, as long as you're having fun!
 
4. Blogging about something just because it'll make your blog popular.
 
NOOR STOP WITH THIS, WE GET IT, OKAY, CHILL. I'm sorry! But I can't stress this point enough, BE YOURSELF. We all want to see the real you, because I'm sure it is better than copying someone else. 


Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. ~Judy Garland
5. Say "I can't"

Because you can. "I can't be as popular as that blogger", well make that your biggest goal and work your hardest to get there, and you can. "I can't blog anymore, it is too hard." Blog at your own pace, blogging is supposed to be fun.

Okay, now that I look at this, it's just another blogging tips post, but that's okay, I still like it :D. I hope you enjoyed! *blogs for 1 hour, smiles, goes to Bloglovin to be even more active*

What are your blogging "don'ts"?

Mkay bye,
Noor

  5. This is true! Especially promoting it. I hate it when someone will leave a comment on a post of mine being like, "Hey! Love this! Please follow my blog and comment frequently!" And then suddenly you realize they say that in every single comment they comment. It's very annoying.

  9. Yes! I also hate it when people in the comments are like, "I followed your blog, so please follow mine" like it's an obligation. :'( makes me feel bad if I don't follow back...

  10. Lovely post! Can you check up blog? I think you've missed my most recent post ;) ... hahahahaha Just kidding :D

    I really dislike those promotional comments, it makes me feel like if they didn't even bother to read my post and they just scrolled all the way down to write something like: "Lovely post! Check up my recent post :) ... Follow for follow?"

    Also, there are some blogs that not only have different font sizes, but also different fonts and different colors, all in one post! That makes it a bit hard to read :S
