If you missed Part 1 check it out here! Today I wanted to share with you 3 more blog myths that I thought were true but have come to the realization that those blog rules can be kicked to the curb too!
Myth 1:Have a professional mind-set!
Ok you are a blogger, no need in being so technical especially if you are talking to another blogger or emailing another blogger. Yes we have to have a little professionality(a word I made up ha!) with companies but don't forget to show your personality. Even with companies that contact me I still like to throw in my personality and make them smile...I'm a colorful being what can I say!
Remember there is a time and place for professional "adulting" but don't forget to be you at the same time! If you have a little spunk show it. Companies will really like that about you and nine out of ten will come running back for more of you!
Myth 2:Post Something Every Day
Uh nooo I can't, I would seriously go insane! Some people can pop a post out like its a pop-tart in a microwave...yeah not me. I take time to perfect everything that I do from the grammar to the pictures and of course the post. I wish I could be those "pop-tart popping" bloggers but I'm not. So getting 4-5 post out a week is enough. I was at 3 post per week and have amped up my blogging because I see great potential not to mention I have a very big project that requires getting my page to grow a little more for it to be a great success! Although I love to write it can start to feel like a overbearing job if you think you just have to put out a post every day.
On the days that you don't post anything, promote your old ones...remember your archives don't forget them. They miss youuuu!
Myth 3:Keep your blog post Short
One other myth I have kicked to the curb. If I have a post I feel strongly about like my last post #flexinmycomplexion its gonna be long and that's fine by me. As long as its not just all over the place and it sticks with the topic at hand nothing is wrong with having it a little bit long. There are people out there that love to read, I'm one of them. So I love to read a long post! Something that I like to do with long post is too break them up with headlines, bold print, italics, big letters inside the paragraph and of course pictures! This gets the person's attention and keeps their attention because they want to know why you made that sentence bold! I learned this in school and this has always stayed with me. I admit that when someone doesn't break up there post into sections I immediately get anxious because It looks incredibly to long to want to read!
Remember by breaking up your long blog post, it will not look as long! This post was long but look you are still here why...because I broke this bad baby up into pieces...your welcome ;)
