The Do's and Don't's of Blogging: guest post

The Do's and Don't's of Blogging:
We all love blogging and making friends and getting lots of followers. 
But if you want people to read your blog, you need to follow a few simple rules. 
  1. Do post at least 3 times a week. If I love reading your blog, I'm going to want a lot of it. 
  2. Don't blog a super long post without pictures. Let's face it, we all have a short attention span. 
  3. Do post lots of pictures. They don't have to be pictures you have taken. They can just be something related to your post. And don't forget to give credit. 
  4. Don't add music to your blog. In a video, in a post, okay. But not when we open your blog. It's hard to read when I'm singing along to your song. 
  5. Don't keep that Catchya thing on your blog comments.  Sometime I won't even comment if I know I have to do this. I can't be the only one who does this. 
  6. Do have a twitter. Unless your super against it, get one. It's how most of us find new blogs and know how awesome you are. 
  7. Do be a good follower. This means reading and commenting, not just following. We all love a little comment love. 
  8. Don't (and this goes with the "Do" above) leave those "follow me" comments. Their stupid and make people not wanna follow you. If we like you, we will follow. 
( All do's and dont's are my opinion.)
Hope you like and agree with my Do's and Don't's. 
If not then your your blog not mine.

I agree on the Captcha, the music and the "follow me" comments (although I was guilty of some of these when I was a newbie blogger - live and learn!)

I also agree on being a good blogger - commenting/visiting other blogs as much as possible :)

Great post!

This is perfect. Great rules to blog by. I do need to get better about blogging more. I haven't been so good about doing 3 times a week or more. Yikes! ;) Thanks for posting these :)

I thought this was awesome. I love Nikki and her blog and everything she said on here was totally right. Its just so rude and stupid basically how people just run around and post "follow me" I told her, it actually makes me not even bother looking at their blogs. Cause I'm like, they'll never know anyway since it seems all the want are followers. I mean, we all want lots of people but like for me, I have almost 800 followers and maybe only get one or 2 comments. So obviously, most people only just follow just to follow
