Just a quick link up to Shoemoney who had a post from earlier in the week that I thought was right on the money. He wrote his Blogging Advice To Connect With Your Readers and made three simple but spot on points:
- Don’t try to be something you are not
- Celebrate your weaknesses
- Learn to take criticism
Of course he writes more on each one but I think they’re great tips to make. In some ways they are a little counterintuitive in that sometimes people’s natural reaction is to only present the good things about themselves, big note themselves and brush off critiques – but blogging’s a different medium and when you’re ‘real’ with your readers it can win you a lot of brownie points.
Head over and read Jeremy’s full post here.
PS: there’s some good comments on the post too – I particularly love the first one of John’s:
“Blogging honestly is a lot easier too, you dont have to bother about remembering all the lies you told before… nor do you have to make up new lies.”
