Boston Parent Bloggers Tip of the Week – Legwork
One of my favorite things about Boston Parent Bloggers and about blogging in general is the chance to help other people start seeing their visions come to life through blogging. Whether it’s just a place to express yourself, promotion for another business, a chance to meet new people, or the beginning of your social media empire, blogging is fun. When you’re just getting started, there are so many questions you may have, and it’s great to have someone who can lend a hand, mentor you, and keep you from making some big mistakes. I truly enjoy that and I’m happy to help out. That said, you have to be willing to do some of the work on your own.
- If you’ve researched blogging platforms and want to know which one I use and why, please ask. But don’t ask me to choose a platform for you, or outline all of the pros and cons of each.
- If you want help installing a plugin on your blog, or have a problem with a particular setting, ask. But don’t ask me, “How do I get started?”
- If you’re attending a conference for the first time and I’ve already been, I can certainly provide some tips for getting the most out of things, but you should also read the conference website and seek out other blogs that have information on how to prepare and what to do.
