You’ve got to kiss a lot of blogging frogs. (That might be a toad)

This is a response to my first question asking how much time running a blog takes and if I have any tips so here goes:

  • Organisation is an aspiration rarely achieved.
  • Running a blog takes less time than it feels, but that might be because I need to be more organised.
  • A lack of likes/views isn’t a bad sign, it’s only early days.
  • Writing every day helps, at least I have an emergency supply.
  • Experiment to see what works whether it’s a post or your blog theme.
  • A typo isn’t the end of the world that’s what edit is for.
  • Schedule post is amazing, no more rushing to get it done on the day.
  • Always have plenty of bananas for the monkeys then they’ll write all day, though I still don’t have the complete works of Shakespeare.

I don’t know if any of that helps but I find I’m learning all the time so in six months I might say something completely different.

Now I must return to my regularly scheduled panic because I haven’t got all the articles I want to finish done.
