  5. Anita Irlen

    I’m sorry, I’m very sorry, but these tips are so poorly written, I can’t take them seriously. I’m not meaning to hurt anyone, but blatant flattery is empty and doesn’t help anyone. Like the writer says, “study your own self.” That, I think, is good advice.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Anita,
      Your comments and opinion are welcome and appreciated. Blogging is fun when we have an analytical exchange of ideas. However, after reading your comments, I reviewed the post. I can not figure out which tip or tips you consider “blatant flattery.”

  7. GiGi Eats

    You always hit these topics on the head PERFECTLY! I agree 100% with all of this, especially the personality aspect! If you don’t inject your personality into your posts, no one will get a sense of who you truly are, and won’t be able to relate to you all that well and will never come back to your blog. End of story!

  10. Leanne

    All really good points – I’m finding (after blogging every day for the atoz challenge) that I’m wanting to wind back a little and just blog as me again. No writing what others want to read etc, just what’s on my heart our in my head – that way it gives me pleasure regardless of how “successful” my blog is 🙂

      Hi Leanne,
      I use Medium to blog without constraint from concerns about SEO or clickable headlines, etc. I can relate to what you wrote.

    I’ve written an article publishes it on my blog then my next problem is how will I let encourage my target audience to read my blog. I always promote it at my own social media channels such as Twitter and facebook. Once a month I conduct surveys to gather feedback from my readers.

    Hello Janice!
    I loved your blog and your tips for effective blogging. I think the one that hits home for me is the idea of a “team”. I’ve actually been thinking a lot about this, and to see it in writing, makes it all the more “real” and important. I’ll be re-evaluating things as I write. Thanks again for these tips and for visiting my blog.

    • Janice Wald
