We all know what goes on behind the scenes at our own blogs but rarely do we lift the curtain and share those experiences with others. Dear Diary: Confessions From A Blogger stems from the curiosity. This week I want to share some of my bad blogging habits.
|Here is my confession:|
Bad blogging habits aren't something I'm proud of. I know that I should strive to be the best little blogger I can be but I'm not perfect and I realize that while I'd like to be it's simply never going to happen. I'm human, sometimes I'm lazy, sometimes I'm just busy and then other times I simply forget. So today, I want to share three of what I feel are my worst blogging habits. These are the areas I know I need improvement in and have been really trying to overcome slacking on them.
1. Commenting on other blogs: This I feel is probably my worst blogging habit. While I do have a list of blogs I try to visit daily I know I could do so much better. Some of the ways I've been trying to overcome this *ahem* laziness is by visiting chunks throughout the day whenever I have some free time. This has really helped me stay focused and also I know that the lower number spread over a longer period of time will keep me from slacking off and just not doing it.
2. Forgetting to write stuff on my calendar: I'm getting better at remembering to write stuff down but I still forget. I won't tell you which it was but last month I participated in a tour which I had agreed to way back in February or something. The host forgot to send out a reminder until just an hour before it began. Thankfully due to a raging case of insomnia I received the e-mail and had it scheduled and up on time but yeah, that was pretty much what made me really try and become better about putting stuff on my calendar. I also now immediately schedule posts in advance if they don't require a review or anything extra like an interview or guest post in them. This has really helped me as well.
3. Updating my Facebook page: While I'm really good at interacting on Twitter, I feel I am definitely lacking when it comes from Facebook. I never really know what to talk about and then due to Facebook not showing posts to all fans I always worry about nobody responding back. I don't want a wall filled with me talking to myself you know?!? I want Facebook to be exciting for the fans who like and follow it. I am trying to become better at updating it throughout the day but I still feel this disconnect with my page. Hopefully I'll figure it out sooner or later.
