Intro ~ Blogging Tips For The Outdoor Blogger

Outdoor Blogging

The fact is, blogging isn’t as simple as writing a post and hitting the publish button. Statistics claim there are more that 2 blogs created every second of every day and sadly, most of them never make it past their first two or three posts.

Whether you just started your blog or if you’ve been toiling away at it for awhile, there are plenty of pitfalls to avoid, tips to be considered and tools to stick in your blogging tackle box.

Our goal is to help our fellow bloggers create a blogging experience that is both enjoyable and rewarding…while avoiding the headaches blogging can sometimes inspire!

First piece of advice is the simplest: Keep writing…

    Hi Rebecca,

    Blogging tips is a great idea for section on this site. I certainly could have used them when I started a few months back and I can still use more. I’m an engineer by profession, so writing was never my strong skill…and it still isn’t. But, I developed such a passion for hiking that I wanted to tell people all about it, which evolved into my blog. What I’ve learned in the last few weeks are as follows:

    Love what you write about…or it will become a task rather than a past time.

    Network yourself in with people who write about the same thing.

    If you want your blog to get traffic and readers from all over, I find Twitter and Facebook to be more helpful than any of the pinging websites.

    Find a network to join which is focused on your area of interest (such as the OBN).

    I can’t wait to see further tips on this blog. Anything that is written about with respect to blogging tips, will be extremely helpful to me…

    Thanks,
    Karl Searl

    I read through every one of your blog tip posts! Some things I was doing right some things I changed. Thank you so much! I learned a lot.
    The one thing I have problems with is intentionally promoting myself. It seems self centered. Such as a face book page for my blog. I can’t quite bring myself to do that yet. Maybe someday. It’s probably just me, because I do not consider it to be self centered when I see another blogger with a fb page. I think “oh, that’s nice I can follow them on facebook.”
    Really that’s what blogs are there for….to get people to read them. :) Thanks again for all the advice. New here, but I’m really liking the OBN.
