5 BLOG myths busted

  1. Great post! I've been working on Myth 3 myself. I know I can talk about a variety of topics but I felt sticking to my niche was best. Now I'm letting myself explore and I'm seeing how my blog is evolving into a place I really love.

  2. Oh, I like this a lot. I also struggle with number three. My blog is called Mrs Med School, but I write about sewing, cooking, family, photography. I guess it's just my life, but this was comforting. You should let me know if you this my blog is waaay to broad. Eek.Anyway I love what you've got going on here. http://www.mrsmedschool.blogspot.com

    1. Its so natural to think we cant do more than one topic on a blog but if we let ourselves explore we can find what it is that we truly love and thats the beauty of blogging! I was looking at your blog and I actually really love it and the concept! It's showing everything that you love to do while having your husband in medschool, thats a great segway to exploring different topics that you love! Keep up the great work!!!

  3. Great tips. I do think it's okay to be inspired by other bloggers, but it's important to leave link love to share where your inspiration from your post came from!

    1. I definitely was the same way but then I started just doing whatever I wanted and that's what makes it more fun!

  7. Really blogging is all about being ourselves, and that's what readers want. They have enough perfect magazines, they want real people who break rules, but stay ethical. Thank you for writing such a great post!

  8. 1 & 2!! Especially 2 though. There is always someone talking about ways to change your blog titles and what you have to use to get views and I've had some of my biggest posts off some of the most ridiculous titles. Ha. Headlines are definitely important but it's all about content.

    1. Yes I have seen those articles many of times but then I see a simple headline that gets so much more attention lol! So break those rules and do what youu want!!

  10. Great tips, especially number 5. I like the personal aspects when reading reminds us we're reading articles by 'real' people.
    My blog follows various aspects of my life and that's how I like it.

    1. Yes those are my fave type of post! Sometimes what they are going through I can totally relate which makes me love their blog even more!

  11. I definitely now know number two is a myth. I know some of the simplest blog headlines I have came up with have the most views! Like the How to post or Wardrobe Staples posts, those seem to get the most views. Not because of a catchy phrase I came up with but because they are what people are looking for or want to know more about. So I am sticking with the simple headlines because it works for me!

  12. Great post. Thank you for sharing. I've only been blogging for 3 months and was worried that I hadn't got enough followers across my social media or that I shouldn't get personal, but you made me realise that the first comment I git on my blog a few days ago was good.

  13. Great Post! I completely agree with every point you made! I think that if you enjoy writing that's the main thing and there will always be people out there who will be interested in what you have to say no matter how many different things you write about.

  14. Great post! There are definitely a few things that you mentioned that I thought were true! Especially the blogging niche, it seems like a few years ago Niche blogs were important, but now it's kind of whatever you feel like which I appreciate more because it can be so boring to only read about one thing!

  16. yes ooo...the part about sticking to one topic and not writing about yourself. Why stick with just beauty, when I've got other things going?

  18. Great post! And it's helpful having those ideas debunked. It's sometimes very disheartening seeing your own low following numbers, but I've learnt that the audience grows and engages if you keep posting and are true to yourself.
    Love your writing and that the blog is you :-)
