Blogging Tip of the Day: Vol. 81

Today's Tip: What I don't know as a blogger still far outweighs what I do know as a blogger. The fact that I post blogging tips is a 30 - 40 - 30 proposition. Thirty percent to be helpful. Forty percent because I am so damn impressed with myself that I figured something out and want to brag a little bit and the last thirty percent because I just want new bloggers to succeed and not be pinned down by the experts in selling you on the "SEO game". When it comes right down to it, I just learn as I go like anyone else, with a bit of a lead in time spent doing it.

If we just take all of my last 80 blog tips and put them to use I still can't even explain why most of them work and how they are effecting my personal blogging. I have talked about getting involved with communities, both literally and figuratively. At the same time my one community that has the most followers doesn't even have original content in it, but it grows and grows and grows. It's fascinating really. My blog that gets the most hits and attention is the one where I basically explain how I screw up life things (oh wait come to think of it that is kind of funny) and the steadiest blog is the health and fitness one.

So what tip am I actually giving here? That has got to be what people are asking themselves right now, but fear not I have the answer! Just write damnit! That was actually the title of the blog when I came back after not writing for a couple of years. Well not writing in my blogs anyway. I was a "serious" author during that period, or so I was convinced, by the other people who failed at blogging. The fact of the matter is people only fail at blogging when they stop writing. Again I just want to say, Just write damnit, and let the audience decide what is and is not going to be "big" or "popular" or whatnot. As long as you keep writing and posting it then you will never be a failure, even if it takes time to be popular.
