MY 6 BLOGGING TIPS!!!

I promised earlier this week that you need to keep your eyes glued to my blog if you're a blogger or aspiring to be one. Just to remind you, he he he, I have a YouTube Channel where I upload videos weekly, please SUBSCRIBE so you don't miss out on any video. Not all my videos are shared on my blog. 

I hope you enjoy this video and I will write down the tips for the benefit of those who can't watch. Please share your tips with me my fellow bloggers,(I follow amazing blogs!) and if you are new to blogging and have questions... ASK! 

TIP 1 
WHY DO YOU WANT TO BLOG?
Some people are attracted to blogging because some bloggers are like celebrities, others are attracted because dem don see say e be like say some bloggers dey hammer seriously. You want to make money? That's not a bad motive, blogging is not moin-moin, if you want to make money from blogging you are going to WORK for it. A blog is not built in a day. Find your blog purpose. 


TIP 2
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BLOG ABOUT?
At least, if you're going to start a blog, you need to know what you want it to be about. Determine the niche and you will be better off. As for me, my blog has been described as a bag of pick-n-mix, blog of all trades. LOL. All join! If that's the kind of blog you want, then go for it! There are fashion blogs, recipe blogs, tech blogs...find your comfort zone.

TIP 3
BRAND YOUR BLOG!
Branding is what makes your blog unique. Try and google different ways you can brand your blog, from blog name to blog designing. Every detail matters. If you can brand your blog before you actually start one, better for you. I did mine late, regardless it's working for me. Visit some top blogs, Nigerian and International, you go see say blog get levels! Branded A-Z!

TIP 4
EMBRACE SOCIAL MEDIA
Love twitter, maximize Facebook, in fact any social media you can lay your hand on, you need to use. Those sites are brilliant for interaction and networking. Blogging is interacting, take it a steep further! I love social networks! You have no idea the kind of inspiration you can get from twitter! Did you see my post about how to get more follow backs on twitter? HERE

TIP 5 
INTER BLOG COMMUNITY NETWORKING!
Visit other blogs, leave comments. Interact with fellow bloggers! You will benefit from the friendships you initiate online. At least we all know there's a Nigerian Blog community. Interact with everyone. Bloggers are readers and most of the "commenters" on your blog will be bloggers, you see why you need to network blogs?

TIP 6
BE CREATIVE!
The way you deliver your content should be interesting. What makes your story different from other people's story? If you're a gossip blogger this is compulsory, don't copy and paste! Be creative with imagery, post ideas, everything! Creativity is key!

  2. Another tip.... Have a blog list on your page. That's actually why I go to Linda Ikeji's blog. Even if she doesn't have fresh gist, I'm assured that I can access others who do from her blog... with a consequence that her blog visits increases.

  8. hi sisi yemmie. I just started blogging few months ago and i really appreciate your post. Talking about branding, i have issues with my blog template its quite boring.

    1. Blogger is very easy to manage, I used to manage mine till I really needed something I couldn't do myself so I had to pay someone. You can do most redesigning by yourself, I learnt by watching a lot of video tutorials and how-to blogs

  14. I agree with all that was said; another thing people forget is consistency. Readers want to see consistency (so if you only plan to update once every two weeks, make sure you do so).

  18. Thanks for the tips Sisi. I find your videos very engaging. I especially like the fact that they are not all about your blog post.

    As far as blogging tips, Inserting your personality into your blog also makes a difference. Especially personal blogs. The more readers feel like they can relate with you, the more likely they are to revisit your blog.

    Keep up the good work sis! You are doing a fantastic job!
