There are more blogs in existence than ever, yet more and more people are seduced by the idea of sharing their thoughts and ideas with the rest of the world.

As a matter of fact, it does seem as if there’s a war out there. Everyone is fighting for attention, there are so many things to learn and master. So many social networks, marketing techniques. There’s even an awful lot of content on blogging itself, which makes it even more frustrating.

    • That’s the thing about rules: there are always exceptions. You can even get away by breaking all of the rules I listed. There are posts on this blog that break all of those rules. They didn’t perform well, but they exist.

      Blogging is an art, so you can get away with a lot of things.

  1. Cristian Mihai… You are a wonder!! What an inspiration you are. Everyday I look forward to seeing what gems you’ve posted. Keep up the amazing work!

    I came to blogging accidentally lol… I had created/founded an Organics aromatherapy skincare company and posted what I thought would be something fun for people to do – a DIY organics perfumery post – … and it went viral. I had no idea there were such things as “stats” or “comments”. I’d go 6 months without even checking my blog or reading the comments. I simply had no idea that it was #1 on a Google search! That post still gets anywhere between 400 – 3,000 views per day. I Didn’t even know that 400,000 views was a big deal, but I’ve since learnt how important it is to write something that people need to read, or will get true enjoyment out of.

    I can see how you’ve been so successful at getting many followers. Your posts are very generous, incredibly helpful and written from the heart.

    Many blessings to you fellow blogger!

  2. A lot of great infotmation there! I sort of accidentally stumbled on the perfect formula for writing my movie reviews. I’ve been doing the same thing ever since I started. My titles are never the movies title, my review is between 200 to 250 words, and I always end with a picture. You’re defanitly right about editing. I used to write my reviews and never look at them again. Until my mom kept pointing out mistakes and I realized it was more important then I thought.

  3. This is a really helpful post, especially the parts about clickbait headlines and the editing process. When I’m done editing my posts are usually half as long as they were before. Only on occasion, I feel like there’s nothing irrelevant I’d rather cut in my posts. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Positively fantastic! (I especially like your comment about writing like famous people. The comedic timing was impeccable.) This is a very well written post, and while I often struggle to find new advice, as most of it feels a bit canned, this was very fresh. Thank you so much! I’ll definitely be implementing what I don’t already do.

  5. Love your motivational advice and practical tips. Keep it coming! I am getting started and this is helpful. I’ve been in the tech startup space, but neglected an area I enjoy, which is writing and working on my own interests.
