So, I've been blogging for about two years now, and just recently thanks to 20SB I gained readers. Readers that I have made friends with! Blogging has definitely added some joy to my life, and it is something that I really enjoy doing, and indulging in. But I think there are a few things about blogging that I have learned that I would like to share with everyone, whether that be my readers, family, or anonymous people who are thinking about blogging. So here it goes :
THESE ANNOY THE CRAP OUT OF ME!
Dear Blogger, I know your trying to eliminate spam, but really.... can't you come up with an easier way? Yes, I can spell... I can spell ridiculous words that AREN'T in the dictionary. It's such a hassle, seriously everytime I want to leave a comment and this comes up after I press "Post Comment" I literally SIGH.
I hate these.
Blogger set up/ defaults
Blogger, Why do you switch things up on us when I was just getting used to the LAST update you made. Take it easy buddy... slow down. And do us all a favor and ASK us before you go changing everything. I dislike trying to get used to a whole new lay out and using new things when all I want to do is BLOG!
Why doesn't blogger have spell check? It used to, and then one day BAM! No more, and I am forced to copy and paste every entry that I make into Word, because Word is friendly and will do me the favor of telling me what I spelt wrong. I don't like this either.
I'm done complaing about blogger.... onto comments and blog friends.
Blog Friends: This is something that I have really enjoyed since gaining readers. Making friends and reading about their lives, and getting their comments and commenting on their posts and so forth....
Comments: I am about to share the secret to gaining comments.... this is very sacred so take it into consideration because it is TRUE. If you want more comments here is the way to get them.....
drum roll please..
COMMENT ON OTHER PEOPLE'S POSTS!
It works. and why it works is a simple theory. When people comment on my posts, I think...
" Wow, they took the time out to share their comments on my posts, I should check out their blog and do the same"
And then I do.... its a cycle. You scratch my back, and I will scratch yours.
All in all, I love this world. This crazy blog world.
