Hmm, just to be clear, as I complete one year, I still feel naive with little knowledge about blogging (time flies, still feel like I started this blog only yesterday) but before I leave, I would love to share with you things I have learned so far. Here it goes:

  • I think, A blog should be about both of us, readers and the authors. As for me, I do not like blogs with too much “I” in them, how about us or we.
  • I learned that the bloggers are really smart beings but emotional and could be great friends too. The support is incredible.
  • Blogging world is a great place to learn while having fun.

Tips to newbies :

  • Be real and yourself.
  • Know your purpose of blogging.
  • Get inspired but don’t copy. Say no to plagiarism.
  • share and support. Give proper attributions and credits to the original source.
  • Activate Excerpts for your posts in reader to prevent your content from being copied by scrapers and leechers.
  • share your posts on multiple platforms.
  • when you read someones post don’t just leave, leave behind your thoughts, as interactive bloggers make connection faster. I remember those who interact with me.
  • Be good and avoid being hurtful, harmful in anyway. Post quality content or do your best, as wasting your readers time would maybe make them never return.
  • Also, followers count is not everything. Know that having loyal readers is more important.

I think I will wrap the blogging tips here  as this post has become already too lengthy. So guys,as you know, I do not do award posts anymore because it is quite time consuming. Hence, I have decided to mention here those who nominated me for any award or tag from the time I published my last award post.

It is always good to keep on writing whatever you feel, and whenever you have time…a reason i write once or so a week (i have a full-time hectic job as priority).
Congratulations on your journey…you site is pretty good. A custom domain would be better…i used wordpress itself for it. click to go to his blog.

Hey! Don’t you dare to retreat, Arohii. You’ve made a wonderful job here, in the blogosphere. With you, this area is more beautiful. I don’t have my English with me, but I can say that without you here, I would have retired long ago. Your support and beautiful words made me continue my work here. This is all I got to say, but again, don’t you dare to leave me alone. You’re one of my best friends here. I know it’s hard to share your time, but you have to try. We have to do this together.
But, you have to understand that if it’s better for you to take a break, you don’t have to ask for my permission. I will be happy if you will be happy.
So, I don’t know if my English is understandable, but I wish you luck no matter decision you’ll take. You can use this for your blogiversary, my dear friend🙂
Hugs, love and kisses,

ARV! says:
