Blog Tips For New Bloggers: A Guest Post At In The Next 30 Days

I think I’ve learned a lot since I started blogging almost 4 years ago. A lot of it was by trial and error, and even more by luck. Things I thought would work totally kerplunked, while some things that I never thought twice about did great. So when Anna at In The Next 30 Days asked if I’d like to guest post about blog tips for new bloggers, I thought I could give some (relatively) sage advice.

Blog tips for new bloggers and for bloggers who are looking to grow their audience.

Me doling out my two cents about blog tips for new bloggers in nothing new – I’ve been doing it since I started blogging. I even have a section devoted to blog tips for new bloggers called Blogging 101.

But I think it’s super important to share tips with new bloggers, or bloggers who are looking to grow and expand their audience. Where would I be without the help of Letters For LucasKludgy Mom, and Things I Can’t Say?! They are my oldest blogging friends and have always helped me along the way.

So head on over to In The Next 30 Days, read my tips and then comment with your own blog tips for new bloggers. What do you wish someone would’ve told you when you started blogging? What simple thing did you have to figure out on your own? Which bloggers helped you grow?

And if you are visiting from In The Next 30 Days, hello! I have all kinds of stuff here from parenting to gardening and green living to sharing recipes, and even serious topics like depression and infertility, there’s a little something for everybody.

And if you are interested in winning money and awesome prizes, I’ve got two chances for you right now!

I’m hoping to win a recipe showdown against another blogger with this recipe, and if you vote for me, you’ll be entered to win a $250 VISA gift card!


If you’ve been coveting a Keurig, Kindle Paperwhite, or a KitchenAid stand mixer, me and a group of bloggers will be giving away one of each. Check out my Comforts of Home giveaway.

Good luck!

  2. Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask. Does operating a well-established website like yours require a large amount of work? I am brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it! a recently posted..aMy Profile
