6 Blogging Tips to Celebrate My 6th Month Blogoversary // New Blog Design

IMG_2081.jpg

Greetings bookish friends!

Today, November 3rd is my 6th month blogoversary! I know, not that big of a deal, but this is really important to me because it marks 6 months of hard work and dedication to something I am truly passionate about: blogging.

I have also recently switched my blog design from a fluffy gold and pink aesthetic to a silver navy blue flower theme.

Here are 5 blogging tips that I’ve learned along the way that I’d like to pass down to other bloggers. Enjoy!

1. Write quality posts

Quality over quantity is essential in blogging. I much rather see someone write interesting, cool posts once a month rather than get random junk every other day. I could go on and on, stressing the utmost importance of this tip, but I’m going to keep it short and sweet. Bottom line is to post quality content, always.

2. Interact with the blogosphere

If you are interested in growing an audience that will read, comment, and like on your posts, then meet some new blogging friends! There are so many awesome blogs out there with innovative and creative people behind that computer screen who would love to grow their audience and meet people with the same interests as then.

So if you happen to stumble across a blog that seems cool, give them a follow and leave a comment! Maybe they’ll stop by your blog as well.

3. Use other social medias to promote your blog

Although this is optional, using other social medias to promote your blog is a great way to gain followers and widen your audience. For example, if someone sees your profile on Goodreads and likes it, they may check out your blog and give it a follow. Also, having other social medias can be really fun! I use my Instagram to display my bullet journal and discuss book that I enjoyed reading aside from my blog.

4. Don’t pay too much attention to stats

Yes, I know it can be tempting to compare yourself to bloggers who have way more followers and are far more experienced. And although it is nice to have an audience, don’t get stressed out or worried if your blog hasn’t gone viral yet. It often takes a long time to grow a blog, and its a gradual process. `

5. It’s OK if your blog isn’t perfect

There are so many things to take account into when first making a blog: the posts, the design…I could go on and on. That’s why it’s really important not to compare yourself to other bloggers who have more followers than you, because even if you have thousands, chances are there is someone out there who is more successful than you.

When I started my first blog, I was constantly comparing myself to other bloggers who had better posts, and nicer graphic designs. Sometimes, I would look at my blog and see a million things wrong with it, even though it had taken me so much time and effort. I even considered deleting my blog because I always felt that I could never be as good as any of the other bloggers that I knew.

Be confident and don’t compare yourself to others: you can always improve, but you are already good enough.

6. Be passionate

This is the most important tip on the list — if you don’t care about what you do, then why do it at all? I’m going to say right now that if you’re not passionate about whatever your blog is about (books, fashion, traveling, ect.) then it’s pointless.

Passion makes all the difference.

Polly is a dancer, and she always dances “full-out”. She works hard to improve and get better to reach her goals in not just dance, but all aspects of her life. Whenever she is struggling with something, she keeps on trying, even when it’s really hard.

Fresh start

Hello, world!

My name is Katie K and I am the author of another blog called The Tweendom Kingdom. I switched blogs becuase I wanted to switch from reviewing children’s novels to YA novels. I blogged on The Tweendom Kingdom for a year until I realized I wanted change. I wanted to try something different and spice things up a bit. I wanted to be involved in more tags and challenges.

Thus, That Bookish Girl was formed!

Creation

I am going to work hard to be able to post more content. Not just book reviews, but other random stuff.

Better that YouTube?

My goal is to post at 3 times a week (2 if I am feeling lazy) on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. I will proably only do book reviews 1/3 of the time because they take so long to write and edit.

Thank you for checking out my new blog! Please pick up on where you left off and click that follow button (to be apart of the bookish squad). See you soon!

Keep on Booking,

Katie K
