Helpful Hints for New Bloggers



I want to share some tidbits on blogging.  These are just my opinions/suggestions.  I hope they are helpful too you.  (✿◠‿◠)

1. Be friendly and be yourself

2. Post often and be patient

3.  Follow and comment on other blogs to get your name out there.  This way bloggers will follow you. If you don't comment on other blogs how can you expect comments on your blog.

4. Don't leave your blog link when you comment on other blogs.  It's a bloggers pet peeve  because it's like stealing from them.  It took time and work for them to get all there followers. In time you will have lots of followers too. You can email the blogger and simply ask them to take a look at your blog. 

5.  Try to be creative as much as you can.  

6. Clean up those cuticles so you can have pretty pictures to look at.  See how to here

7. Have giveaways for your followers to show your appreciation for them taking the time to comment and follow you.  It also help others to find your blog and this promotes new followers for you.

8. Share your skills

9.  Ask questions to get your followers involve and always respond to comments.  If you can't respond to all  just simply say "Thanks".

10.  Have fun!  that's what it's all about ...happy blogging



If you have any other tidbits please share.

I'll put this post on my left side bar under 'Useful Links''


Until next time please have a great nail polish day. (✿◠‿◠) Share/Bookmark

  10. Great post!

    #4 is my BIGGEST pet peeve. I don't think a lot of ppl realize that when you comment your name links back to your blog anyway. No need to double post the link.

  17. What a great and constructive post! Too often we see posts that are quite the opposite, this one is so refreshing and much more helpful. Thanks for this!

  18. Ooh, but I don't agree with the giveaway one though - I don't think anyone should feel obligated to have one, especially since we readers choose to read, and the content is already free for us to enjoy.

  21. I like you took the time to write these out. It seems like blogger etiquette has been a hot topic lately especially in the nail blogosphere! Im a new blogger and tried to figure out the rules just by reading between the lines...but it helps to know Im on the right track :)

  22. Thank you for posting this. I know as a new blogger, commenting and interacting with other bloggers has been a very rewarding experience. I have gathered an increasing number of followers, and made some great friends. I have not done a giveaway mostly because I want to know that my followers are there because they enjoy my blog, not because I was hosting a giveaway. I do have an unannounced giveaway planned. I have some products that when I blog about them, I will put all the names of all the people who comment on that post in random.org and that person will win. No one will know when it is. That is my way of doing a true fan appreciation giveaway.

  23. The other thing I do, is I visit a lot of blogs, and follow the ones I love. And I always check out any of my new followers blogs. And my favourite thing is finding new blogs in blogrolls.
