Lessons I’ve Learned After One Year of Blogging

  1. They say writing by hand is better, but some of us (ahem) get awful writer’s cramp unless they’re typing…

    I hate it when I find mistakes in my posts. But it’s easy enough to just edit and update the post. None of us are perfect. Little mistakes aren’t the end of the world.

    1. Oh I know! I have a tenancy to hold pens and pencils too tight and my hands will get indentations and cramps very quickly. I’m trying to find better writing tools that write darker and more smoothly so I don’t have to try so hard.

      And I’m trying to remember that little mistakes are ok. I take this blogging thing to seriously sometimes :)

  2. This was really helpfu, especially the part about getting in the habit of writing every day. I find when too much time goes between posts I have absolutely no creativity or ideas on what to write!

  3. I can vouch for that tip about replying to comments. I still follow, read and comment on blogs where the author tends NOT to reply, but if I’m short on time, I’ll tend to just read the ones by people who always reply. And it’s usually better late than never :)

    1. Sounds like I’m not the only one struggling with that then lol I want to reply but it’s either I don’t have the time, I can’t think of something to say, or I’m just self-conscious or shy. It’s weird to be more shy on the internet than in real life lol I’m working on it though :)

  4. I like the writing everyday :-) I am working up to that. Another, less fun aspect of blogging if yo self-host is security. I wrote a short piece about it today. I did not go into painful detail, but there is food for thought. Thanks for sharing a great article.
