Ingenuity with Followers

It has happened to all of us when we first begin blogging. It is happening to someone right now. It is happening to me.

I am a victim of ingenuity with followers. That’s when you post your item for exposure on Twitter or Instagram. You plenty of likes and follows due to hashtags. You follow those people back. And soon as you follow back, they unfollow you. It was all a scheme to get their followers up.

Guess what? They are dicks. Yes that is really how I feel. Okay sure they saw my content, but they are never coming back again to see the new things I post. It may be something they like. It has really become my pet peeve as I start this blogging life. Why do people do it? I really have no idea, but I keep in mind who has done that. I will not engage with their material at all. Now I understand following people who are apart of your niche I guess but…..

If you are a culprit, I hope you see this. If you are only engaging for follows and likes and then hitting unfollow……

Just a quick thought.

Eff Them Blogging Rules

 

Before I started blogging, I wanted to know everything there is a blogging and being a blogger. From Google, Facebook to other blogs, I was soaking up what it is that I thought I needed to know.

Find Your Niche, Or Not

The one common thing I saw was “find your niche” and only blog about that. They said nobody wants to read a blog that is all over the place full of random topics. The lie detector determine that was a lie. I do not mind random thoughts. That makes a person far more interesting.

I want to be interesting enough to read and not so boring with the same revolving topics every month. My mindset is to have a theme each month and switch it up. One month is fashion and the next month is beauty then incorporate those two for third in lifestyle. Mix it up somehow and make it lit.

I said all that to say I am not following the standard blogging rules. I am going to do what is for me and what is works for me. Fellow bloggers should do the same if that is their thing.

Post A Lot

It was also said that you need to post a lot, preferably 3 or 4 times a week. I can disagree here. I read blogs where they only post once a week and they still have my attention. Some people have full time blogs. I know how to bear with them and be patient.

To combat, that have awesome topics for that once a week to engage your readers. One of my favorite blogs post twice a week and when I tell you her topics are super popping. I always screaming at the screen … Bishhhhhhh what? My attention is grabbed, and I know I relate.

Must Have 1,000 words

I am not in college and I am not writing you a long-term paper. I will lose interest and I just do not want to read all of that. I am a get to point type of person. What is the meat of this post. What are you talking about?

A post can be good with minimal amount of words. Sometimes someone is stopping by to see what you are about, and you want to capture them immediately.

Now I am not saying that this works for everyone. But I scroll posts often all the time, 30 seconds and I am out. Also, says the woman who probably just wrote a 1,000-word posts. And no, I did not check.
