Blogtober : Day 6 ....... {10 things you would have told yourself when starting blogging}

white space looks best

your lifestyle posts will always get more readers than your recipe posts

building a following is slow, but fulfilling 

regular posts mean regular readers. stop posting and they drift away

photos make a post, good photos are better even if they are irrelevant (see above)!

your boyfriend will quickly become use to you photographing every meal you make him 

its a waste of time to compare yourself  to and be envious of other bloggers

reading blogs will become part of your daily routine 

if someone takes the time to comment on your post, you take the time to reply and check out their blog

its easy to sit a wish you had more readers etc but just blog for yourself, say what you want to say. the rest will follow 

Looking forward to reading your top tens and maybe picking up some handy hints along the way!

  1. Great list... Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great list!!! My husband calls me nuts for photographing all my food!

    1. Haha I know - Surprising how used to it they get, although I still get the occasional eye roll mainly because he just wants to start eating!

  3. I love these :) Especially #6! Haha my husband is finally adjusting!

    1. Thank you Laura! Yes the eye rolls still happen but they will adjust in the end!

  4. You are so gorgeous... I love that dress in your picture!

    I have noticed that my lifestyle blog posts get more comments than anything fitness or recipe related. Interesting how that works; I guess people love looking into each others lives?! And you got that right about being envious of other bloggers. It does no good at all. I don't take gorgeous pictures with my 1,000 camera and I am finally OK With it, haha!

    1. Oh wow you are just too kind! it was a beautiful bridesmaid dress i was very lucky!

      To be fair I love looking into peoples lives and so I kind of understand why those posts do the best! I think your blog is just great how it is!

  5. I just want to say that your dress in that photo is AH-MAZING. And I love your advice about blogging for yourself. I think the best blogs are those that are written out of love not out of want for most followers.
