So, let me ask: How many things do you wish you knew back in High School that would save you literally years of wasted time today?
I know, right?
Now how about blogging? What if from Day One you knew to change your permalink structure or install a better comment feature so readers can get follow-up emails?
Or maybe you’ve just started blogging and you want to know now what you’ll learn in a few months.
Regardless of where you come from, here are the four blogging tips you need to read early on in the process to save you mounds of time!
But, knowing what I know now, its title would be “Six Ways to Power Through Unemployment”. Short, to the point, and up front, and everyone loves a list of things they can check off to accomplish a goal.
Thank goodness, right? Or who would have clicked on it?
You Need an Angle
So, even if it makes you feel a little creepy creepy (I kind of feel like I am hawking a product when I get too much of an angle going), having an angle will make for a tighter (and therefore more readable) piece of writing.
Source Your Photos Appropriately
How do you source your photos? Chances are, like me, you do an internet search for the emotion or phrase you are writing about, throw a caption on it and give credit, and move on with your day.
Just play it safe and you won’t get burned down the line.
Always Be Prepared
It’s a familiar scenario: you’ve brushed your teeth, played with the cat, and slathered paraben-free lotion all over your everything.You breathe a thankful sigh and collapse in your bed, pull up the covers, and click off the light.
