Blogging Tips – How to blog

Here are some blogging tips I have come to rely on and believe in.

  • Blog about things you are passionate about
  • Redo what has been done and make it your own (just not a copy)
  • You don’t have to wait until everything is PERFECT
  • You don’t have to do what others think you should, just be yourself
  • Surround yourself with other bloggers and ask for help when you need it
  • Don’t sweat the small stuff, but keep track of it– sometimes that matters the most
  • Always proofread your work, sometimes spell check doesn’t get it right
  • Time management is key, prioritize what needs to be done right away
  • We should all support each other
  • Never close the door on a potential client; if it doesn’t fit now, it might later on
  • Pitch, pitch, pitch
  • And Last but Probably most Important, get sleep!


More about guest author Jody Cowan:

I started couponing about a year and a half ago. I admit, it was because of the show Extreme Couponing. I quickly discovered that it just wasn’t possible to get $400 worth of groceries for $2.59.  But the good thing about it was, that’s when I found blogging.  

At first I went to blogs I found on Facebook while I was looking for coupons. The more I read blogs, the more interested I got. Then one day I decided I wanted to be a blogger! And now, I love it!  

It’s fun and I meet lots of interesting people. Plus I get to try new products and help people.
