A Bit of Better Blogging - Part Seven

I'm tying up loose ends


on several projects this week. So I've put together my latest collection of better blogging finds for today. I hope you see something of interest:

  1. Pinterest - Good or bad for bloggers? This is a must-read. It's persuasive, it's heartfelt and I couldn't agree more. If you love Pinterest, read this! By Darcy of Life With my 3 Boybarians
  2. Clean Slate Blogging by Judy of Cats Eye Writer. There is always somethng to think about here. I also enjoyed her Harry Potter Headlines.
  3. Blog Posts that Start Life as Something Different - using comments to create content. By Sarah Arrow at For Bloggers by Bloggers
  4. Keeping up with the New Facebook by Paint The Moon. Tips for setting up a fan page. I need to have another look at this one myself!
  5. Also, How to Get More Likes on Facebook by How To Make My Blog.
  6. And finally, I had to include an older one I like Ten Most Overused Words on Craft Blogs from Crafterminds (thanks Sue for recommending this site!)
Have a browse and think about blogging goals for 2012. Or maybe you've done that already?

I need all the help I can get to become a better blogger in 2012. I think consistency is my main aim for this year, but there is always room to add a few more goals. I'll be checking your links out later Sian, as they're sure to be good ones:o)

Cheryl said...

the overused words article made me smile :-) here's to tying up loose ends - I could do with some of that medicine right now!

Jimjams said...

Some good points there - especially the absolutely fab "Most overused words" link ;o)

cate said...

looking forward to digging in and reading... and maybe I should set some intentions for myself, something I can strive for more realistically

Jane said...

thanks for the links, will get a coffee and have a good read!

Twinkle Star said...

I really need to take better pictures for my blog! Thanks for the links x

Ruth said...

There's plenty in those links to keep me interested/distracted for weeks!

Sue Althouse said...

Great articles! I finally took the plunge and created a Facebook Page for my blog, so we'll see how that goes. Love the Crafterminds article. Those aren't words I overuse, but I do need to work on commenting a little more creatively.

Carmen said...

Just had a read through them all. The Pinterest one is interesting indeed. Have seen pins with really long spiel, didn't realise they were direct lifts! Naughty!

Thanks for sharing some better blogging. I really enjoyed the link to Clean Slate Blogging - some sound advice.

Maria Ontiveros said...

Great links, and the last one made me laugh (guilty as charged!).
I think being inspired by something (anything) makes for the bests posts, although putting in time on the writing of it helps a lot, too.

I've enjoyed browsing your interesting selection, Sian - though I find myself in disagreement with some of no.6. Perhaps I ought to write a blog post on it! Good luck with finishing up your creative projects.

Gem's Crafts said...

I think my goals are going to just be blog as and when! Because I have absolutely no idea what to expect when Baby arrives!

Lynn said...

Some great links as always Sian - I've dipped into a few but will no doubt be back. My blogging goal is to blog! I'm hoping to dive back in this weekend end.

These are great links and I enjoyed browsing through them. The Clean Slate Blogging was my favourite and so so true. Thanks so much. I want to improve my blogging this year - food for thought.

Melissa said...

Great links Sian - definitely some things to think about as I plan my blogging for 2012. I'm glad to say I rarely use any of the ten most overused words!

This is an great list that I need to spend the time and read! TFS!
