Blogging Lesson Learned #1:
Title your posts with eye catching “Oh no she didn’t just write about that…” type stuff.
I tried this out a few months back and this post produced more page views than almost anything else I’ve ever written about.
I am not sure if I should applaud you or condemn you for this 😉
At least I now know my audience is a bunch of perverts…Kidding.
If it makes you feel any better, I would totally click on something so exciting as well.

Thankfully the lovely Natalie from NS Pottery taught me this lesson a few months back.
There is a large handful of us bloggers who can not leave comments on your blog if this is not the case.
There is nothing more discouraging than reading a post, wanting to gush to the owner about how much you loved it, and then not being able to…which leads me to my next point.
Blogging Lesson Learned #3:
Always have your email address easily accessible on your blog.
Sometimes I need to get in contact with your booty.
And my booty needs to know your booties email address.
So please, have it somewhere.
It makes life much, much easier.
Include pictures in all of your posts.
If you don’t, I get bored.
Even if the only picture you post is something as ridiculous as this, post it:
Blogging Lesson Learned #5:
Read other blogs for inspiration.
You think I get all my genius ideas by myself?
Good joke-I get a lot of my ideas on what to write about from other blogs..
Ain’t no shame in it.
Blogging Lesson Learned #6:
Leave comments on other blogs.
If you like what the person had to say, tell them.
Those comments make people’s days shine a little bit brighter.
When you accidently delete the design of your blog and have no idea on how to fix it-
Don’t freak out.
Remember it is the content that keep people coming back.
Not how pretty your sidebar looks.
Unfortunately, I’m still trying to convince myself of this lesson.
