5 Important Things I've Learnt About Blogging

1. People want you to be unashamedly yourself. Yesterdays post taught me how much people respect you just being human. They aren't going to come for you if you put your hands up and say, yep this is crap and I'm trying to move on from it. In fact the opposite, so many wonderful people were telling me their own troubles yesterday and have so much wonderful love to share. Tell people your life story, it's what they are here for.

2. It helps to be present. What I mean by that is to chat to fellow bloggers, comment on and read their posts, tweet them to tell them how much your are loving their content. Think about how awesome it is when someone does that to you, share the love. Its appreciated and it will make someones day!

3. Don't be afraid of you content not being interesting enough. If you are writing what you like, it will be good enough. People are following you for you. They like to know what you're up to - even if you write a whole post on a foot cream (or something similarly seemingly mundane) - its what you've been enjoying. My point being, if it matters to you, it matters to your reader.

4. Self promote your damn ass off gal. I work so hard on this blog, so I'll be damned if I don't tweet, insta and facebook every post when I can. If it annoys people, yes they may unfollow, but you don't want someone who is annoyed by you following you anyway. Keep up the self love and the love from others will soon follow.

5. Always make the effort to reply to tweets, comments, any interaction given to you by your readers. Its what makes this whole blogging game go round. People want to feel like they matter, because they do. If someone has taken the time to write something on what you have written or made, reply. It takes two seconds and that interaction is key for building an audience that will last for years.

Thats just what I've learned over the last 3 years I have been blogging, and I hope it helps some of you guys out there, whether you're just starting you blogging journey or have been doing it for years.

Have a great day guys and any blogging tips you have, leave them below!
