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.

4.Publish the post –…

Michael’s Origins: What Blogging Should Be About

Great points for gaining insight into the art of blogging!

Michael Rios

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…

Monster Meet and Greet Mash

It’s a Halloween Blog Party!! Woo Hoo!!

yadadarcyyada

1halloween84I was working
on my blog,
late one night
When my eyes
beheld
an eerie sight
For my post
from its slab,
began to rise
And suddenly
to my surprise
It did the mash,
it did the Monster Meet and Greet Mash!
A monster blogger mash, it was a graveyard smash!
It did the mash, it caught on in a flash…
It did the mash, it did the monster blog mash!
The zombies and bloggers were having fun,
The blog party had just begun…
The scene was rockin’, we were digging the shares,
Some were commenting, well, those who dared
So add your link and des-
crypt-ion, girls and guys,
Then suddenly to your surprise…
You can mash, you can monster blogger mash!

1halloween86

While I often say the best part of blogging is ‘meeting’ other bloggers, readers, etc., it’s been too long since we hung together, so welcome to…

Part 2

The best time to begin building your readership is while you’re still writing the manuscript. The very first thing you need to do is create a web presence of some kind or another. This can be as simple as building a blogsite (always free) and writing posts for it on a regular basis. Encourage your friends to subscribe to this, and ask them to ask their friends to do the same. Then write something meaningful, as often as you can, even if it’s only once a week. You should never have to ask, “But what should I write?” You’re a writer; you’ll think of something! Write regularly, keep it positive and upbeat, and post, or repost, articles that will create a discussion in your comments. When people comment…
