Are you a new blogger?
If so, I have blogging advice you can actually use! I’ve only been blogging a year and a half, and still to this day, I’m entirely overwhelmed. Therefore, I’m still looking up blogging tips and tricks and paying attention to the details.
Firstly, laugh my damn ass off. You are giving me Pinterest tips? You have three followers, your boards are a pigsty and your blog isn’t even the first board. Honey, don’t give me any tips about anything. Until you have a minimum of 5000 visitors from any website in ONE MONTH, you are not an expert, you are barely a novice user. So zip it.
Anyone can offer blogging advice, before you listen to them, go have a look at their social media profiles. If they offer tips on certain websites, they had better have a well established account with hundreds or thousands of followers. You have to prove you are an expert, to me anyway. Beware of those giving out advice, because there is nothing like getting Reddit tips from a person whose account has been blacklisted. Again, laugh my ass off.
By the way, due to my niche, I’m reading various dating websites. Question. Who is “J”? Why would I remember your “date with J”? I just found you, I’m supposed to know your life? Write each post like a brand new person has found you, they are excited to find you, but now they will spend their lives wondering “who the f*ck is J”?
And to put my money where my mouth is, here are some stats:
Skinz Social Media Profile
Twitter 12,600 followers.
Pinterest 9,685 followers, 25 active boards and 130,000 average monthly visitors.
I have more than 4 thousand viewers from Reddit. My blog is currently blacklisted, not me, not my IP, my blog. Anyone who attempts to post my blog there will likely follow my little blacklisty train. I am listed as part a “spam ring” (my kid told me this), and I can’t fix it. If you want to be successful on Reddit, get an account and don’t post your blog there for six months, make friends, be fake, pretend you aren’t a blogger and sell your sweet soul to the devil.
Please beware of who you listen to. They just may ruin you.
