Facepalm.....definitely over sharing. To the point of feeling a little nauseous after I posted, then feeling so embarrassed that I've taken the post down. I think I was trying to be real and honest and just...share.
Not being consistent. I'd always start off well, but my posts became more sporadic over time. Reading my "Insights Report" on FB really helped me to see the correlation between consistency & readership....during the times when I wasn't consistent, my readership was the absolute lowest. Now I've started another blog and I'm really hoping I remain consistent, lol!!!
Started my blog to update my relatives who are abroad and also to write some memories. Little did i know that it is open to public. After reading some comments from readers that i didnt know, i started to share everything i discover, tips on everything i encounter, my life etc...
Not getting a domain name for my blog is one of the biggest mistakes i made, i would have loved to be on .com. Secondly i was a newbie and those that knew never told me that i should use my blog name as my URL, instead i used my Last name. But thanks to God that i still get OPP despite that and is not in any way affecting my blog..
accepting more tasks than I had time , now stuck with some 13 reviews dating back to sept . Never doing it again. First prioritizing my family plans and then taking the tasks.
I should have started 4 years ago when I first heard of http://dooce.com! Oh well, I am here now. :)
I think my recent giveaway was disappointing. It was at a time when I din't have time for my site and so didn't promote the giveaway much. I think I will wait a little while until I do it again, and do it interdependently with a sponsor.
Making a blogging post schedule - but NOT STICKING TO IT!
For this coming 2012 - I am aiming to write a better blog by religously writing every day!
Yeah I hear ya! Giveaways seem like a good idea to get more following, but I didn't know you must make urself well-known via other sources to have good number of entries in a giveaway. I had to cancel my contest coz of low entries.
Holding a giveaway before I got a bigger audience! Well, live and learn.^^'
