Blogging. One newbie blogger to another.

Blogging is hard. it's not easy and I never thought it was going to be easy. With work and all the other time consuming parts of life, I find it easy to sit down and not pick up my laptop and write a post. I enjoy writing and I especially enjoy writing about things that I enjoy and being a gentleman and trying to live the life of luxury with a small budget is what I love doing.

Any of my fellow bloggers will all say the same. Blogging is not easy and if you want it to be successful, you have to put a lot of time into it. My other half's blog is quite successful now but she's only get there with lots of time, effort and patience.

I want to give you some of the tips I've quickly learn as a new blogger to help you out if you've started writing a new blog or if you're considering writing a blog.

I think the number one rule to ever think about before and while writing is. Enjoy it.
Don't bother writing if you don't enjoy writing, it shouldn't e a chore. It has to be personal, and shameless, they are like a projection of our lives (For lifestyle blogs anyways)

Make time for your blog. I feel quite hypocritical about writing this tip as I have very much struggled to make time for my blog and post regularly and hypocrisy is definitely not a gentleman's way. If you want to really make your blog successful then you have to make the time for it, especially if you want to make some money from it. Fortunately my blog is more of a hobby and it's isn't such a bad thing if I don't post in a while (If you haven't already noticed the large gap between now and my last post)

Relish in the beautiful community that is the blogging community. There are so many bloggers with all sorts of blogs with different writing styles or simply different ways of thinking.
Use this community to get great tips from others. there all sorts of social chats on twitter that can be just about general blogging, or more specifically subjected chats where bloggers will share all sort of hints, tips and secrets. My favorite so far is #bloghour run by @UKBlogAwards on a Tuesday 9-10 which offers lots of tips related to all sorts of topics. It also brings lots of bloggers together and you get to meet lots of new people. Have read of other blogs, let them know you like they're stuff and share some work, more than likely they'll have a look at your work and share it too.

My last little tip for you is to just keep at it. Patience is key. I've been blogging for a short while now and I still haven't got too far with it. you just have to keep going. And if you panic, or if you're unsure about something, just ask another blogger, or lots of bloggers.

I hope some of my newbie tips have helped a little.
What are your tips and what would you say to someone starting a blog?
Let me know!
