I know about 15 people who have recently started blogging. I've "come out" to them, even though I'm "anonymous" because I feel like it always helps to have someone that you know in the same boat as you. Some of their blogs are amazing, some not so much.
Here is my number 1 tip for any new blogger:
Read other blogs (and comment on them). No one ever became successful at their chosen art without studying the masters who came before them. Furthermore, if you comment on other people's blogs, they are likely to pop over and view your blog. This is the only thing that I have done to grow my readership and my blogger circle. I'm learning what makes an interesting post by the number of hits and comments each one gets. I read every comment and try to email a response back to every single one. I learned that trick from one of my favorite bloggers (Thanks Diana!)
If you had one piece of advice for a new blogger, what would it be??
