That is brilliant.

this is aces! I’ve not followed your blog for long but am glad I started!

3. Phil Groom - March 15, 2011

Thanks both 🙂

Phil, do you have any tips for a new blogger like me? It’s all a bit hit and miss at the moment! And I just looked at your 5quid thing – awesome! If you ever need help in Scotland, get in touch!

Blog tips — now there’s a challenge!

OK, off the top of my head — be real. Talk about what’s on your heart; and when you see something that grabs your interest elsewhere, blog it and link to it.

The way I see it, blogging is all about conversation, which is why I have recent comments at the top of the sidebar on my blogs: it lets people see what others are saying and (hopefully!) draws them in.

And use the WordPress sharing settings (in your dashboard: Settings > Sharing) to connect to facebook & twitter to let people know when you post.

Last but not least: join in the conversations on other people’s blogs, as you’ve done here, then they’ll be more likely join in with yours.

Glad you like 5 Quid for Life – leave us a comment on the About page, maybe, and I’ll get Sam, our volunteers coordinator, to give you a shout. Even better, you could blog about us 🙂

Hey char48 – Phil, the master of the interweb that he is, directed me to this conversation.

I’m a blogger of negligible impact, but I so very much enjoy it. Listen to Phil, he knows what he’s talking of. Also, there’s a great post over at http://tinyurl.com/65vsyx5 – about it.

As I’m looking at your blog, which showcases your writing well, I’m just wondering about the visuals. Because we’re all pretty much useless at reading things without pictures to help explain it now, blogs have to sort of have to follow suit. I find it’s annoying, but it can help to break up long text.

And the only other thing I can offer is the fact that because you write quite lengthy posts – which is to be applauded – the length of your blog is in extremis. Might look a little daunting with all that writing. I mention it as you might want to limit the viewing to 5 or 6 posts per page?

All suggestions, and don’t feel got at. All the best in your blogging endeavours!

Me, master of the interweb: hahahaha 😀

As for you being “a blogger of negligible impact” — hmmm, well you’ve only been shortlisted as young Christian blogger of the year (or whatever it was) twice now…

thank you! I’m not very computer savvy so am still working a lot out (when I figured out how to do links it was like – WOW) so the comment sidebar is a brilliant suggestion! Thank you so much for your help and God bless, char48.

and thank you David too – that’s so kind (and I very much enjoyed looking at your blog!). I’ve been quite surprised at how long posts are – when I’ve writte in journals, they never seemed so long! I did reduce the number of posts on show and had lots of fun discovering how earlier. xxchar48

Just say it, you know you want to...
