ENTER MY CONTEST PEOPLES!!! You have till Friday!
Moving on, people have been asking me for blogging advice recently. So without further adieu I give you
CRIPPIE ANSWERS BLOGGING RELATED QUESTIONS!!!
1) Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because it was a homework assignment. Crippie was taking a social media course and having a blog was actually a requirement. I rather enjoyed the whole blogging experience so I decided to keep the blog going even though I am no longer being graded for it (btw, I got an A for the blog).
2) Do you ever get any negative feedback, if so how do you deal with it?
Luckily I've never had any real negative feedback or comments on this blog. I get the occasional spam comment which I delete. Generally speaking negative commenters are trolls, and you never ever feed a troll. Just let the comment be.
3) Do looks matter?
As a graphic designer of course I am going to say that having a pretty blog does make a difference. Seriously though, having a properly designed blog makes you look more legit and it sets you apart from other bloggers.
4) Any tips to boost viewership?
I get a fair amount of traffic from social networking sites for bloggers like bloggers.com and 20sb.net. I also get traffic by participating in events like blog hops and NHBPM. I've also found that consistently labeling my posts makes it easier for people using google to find me.
Crippie's Tippie- Remember, blogging "success" takes time and a fair amount of effort.
