This month I asked my sponsors to answer one question for me. That being, "What advice would you give new bloggers?" And this is what they said...
Felicity @ Pursuit of Felicity
"My advice for other bloggers is to be patient, honest and open to new friendships. :)"
Jenna @ I Never Really Told You
"My advice to new bloggers is to build relationships through commenting and participating in "link up's". You'd be surprised at how many people you meet this way. It's a great way to find people who have similar interests and to reach a wide range of bloggers."
Danielle @ Framed Frosting
"My advice for new bloggers would be to get involved. Sign up for Twitter and follow other bloggers and they in turn will usually do the same. Also, be sure to get involved in link parties and blog hops to get yourself out there. Once you have dedicated readers, make sure you reply to their blog comments and interact with them -- show them you care!"
Melissa @ Living Holland
"I'm a fairly new blogger myself. I think it is important to stay true to who you are in real life. I don't blog to make myself look cooler than I really am. I blog about my real life as my blog is for me and about me. "
Autumn @ The Pickled Poppy
"My advise to new bloggers is to just be yourself and try really, really hard not to compare your blog to everyone else's! That for me has been the hardest thing. Just have faith in what you are doing and don't let others change you!"
Meg @ The Kissy Pearl
"I would tell new bloggers to stay true to yourself! Write about what interests you and what you care about. Don't create a fake image for your blog just to get readers! If you write about what makes you happy, I am sure that there are others that feel the same."
Lauren @ Tastes Like Love
"I still feel like a 'new blogger' as my blog hasn't yet hit the one year mark, however I noticed a significant change in my blog traffic & readers when I started to comment more on other blogs. Be the reader you'd like to have. So read all sorts of blogs, give genuine comments - not just one word comments, and button swap! And most of all, focus on your blog, not the success of other blogs."
Dondi @ Dondalee's
"My advice for a new blogger would be to just write about your interests and the things you love and don't worry so much about how many people are following you or how perfect your blog looks. Stay true to who you are and everything else will fall into place."
So go forth and visit some of my lovely friends & enjoy the advice!
