Yadadarcyyada: I’m Hooked on a Feeling

Hooked on a feeling from Donna aka yadadarcyyada!

1blog15I can’t fight this feeling, deep inside of me, I’m hooked on a feeling…blogging, you don’t know what you do to me.

I’m not entirely sure how many posts about blogging advice I’ve read in the past couple of years. Some posts were extremely helpful, others decidedly unhelpful, many didn’t pertain to me, and others gibberish. So here’s my best blogging advice that will most certainly change the way you blog forever!

1. Have a blog.

2.Write posts that are 300 words to whatever-your-readers-think-isn’t-too-long. Think of each post as a summer hat, you want it to cover your face and neck, but you don’t want to be the one with thatRoyal Wedding hat.1blog21
3. Add pictures and images to your posts. There are many ways to do this – take photos, make memes, scan, find, paint, draw…and please credit them, if possible.

Chris The Story Reading Ape: A Blogging Quickie…

Great information from Chris The Story Reading Ape!!

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Even if your blog theme doesn’t require it, WordPress recommends you include at least one image in your posts.

I’d further recommend you include a Featured Image (see the categories, tags, featured image options before you schedule or publish).

This will not only enhance your excellently written post, but when the post is reblogged, or uploaded to other media, (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, etc), it will appear and enhance those shares as well.

I’m really not sure what I did to deserve it, but it’s always nice to learn that there are actually people out there who read what I write.

So, having that out of the way, I’ll follow the rules for this award.

7 Interesting Facts About Myself

I’ve been writing since I was about 12 or 13 – got my first short story published in a national magazine back then.

I have a short attention span, and get bored easily, so I write and read in a lot of genres.

My first full-length work of fiction took eight years to write–but, now I finish a book of 60,000 words in about a month.

I was a…

Michael’s Origins: What Blogging Should Be About

Great points for gaining insight into the art of blogging!

Michael's Origins

I have  written several articles on blogging over the past couple of weeks. Two of the prominent ones are, HOW TO PROMOTE YOUR BLOG! and BUSINESS OR HOBBY | HOW TO BECOME A FAMOUS BLOGGER.

So today, I thought I would highlight the most important ones with my own unique spin or flare if you will.  So, let’s get to it! The one item that I will put on top of all is,

don’t be a selfish stuck-up pretentious so and so. Blogging should be a fun, sharing resources, networking together providing a relaxed inviting environment. Have you ever had that one supervisor or Manager that reminded you of the above statement? Don’t be that person.

    Content! Let’s face it this is the king of them all. This should shine like a polished diamond. Another analogy would be like eating one of Chef Gordan Ramsey’s dishes. That’s…
