The idea for a blog came about some time ago as I was scrolling through Twitter and looking for book bloggers to follow, as I was always looking for insight on the next book to read. I had been reading quite a bit and thought as I was scrolling through the book blogger list, that I could do this. I love books. I would love to share my thoughts and my opinions on the books that I read, and I have a bit of background in computers. So, I thought, what the heck, I’ll give it a try. Now, almost 6 months into blogging, I have found it as a great outlet to connect with others, and to share my love of books with others that appreciate them as much as I do…Oh, and the book community, is absolutely awesome!
As for my advice, work on your blog because you love it. If you don’t love blogging, then it will become a chore. Starting out, for most, there is a learning curve, and it can take time to generate a following (which can be frustrating at times). However, if you love it, give it time. Keep at it because you want to keep at it. Keep blogging for the love of what you’re doing, and what you’re contributing to the community (no matter your niche). For me, it just so happens to be for the love of books.
On the technical side, my advise would be to make sure you are adding in all the extra data behind your images. Once you add your image to your post, click on it. then select the pencil and it will bring up the following screen.
Add descriptive text to the Title, Alt Text, and Description box. This will help with your SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
Hope this helped. I look forward to reading your advice for new bloggers.
