Blogging has been one of the best things that have ever happened to me. I will never stop blogging. My blog has changed my life and others lives too. I can’t rave enough about blogging. It’s truly an amazing journey. I think everyone should have a blog for sure. So for those of you that follow through with starting one, here is a list of do’s and don’ts.

When starting a blog and continuing to learn and grow your brand, you head to Pinterest right? That may even be how you came across this post. You’ll read tons of post and all the advice, but the biggest and most important that you can take away from all your research is…
Do what works for you and your audience.
What may work for one blogger may not work for you. So yes try it all then narrow down what fits your style and what your audience is gravitated towards. I was thrown so many “rules” when I started blogging, but once I started doing things the way that fit my brand that’s when I started getting real traffic. It’s all trial and error though so just start. Do it and keep on doing it until you figure out your groove.
