Happy Tuesday to all you awesome people! I hope you’re coming off an incredible weekend and that you have an amazing week ahead of you!
I’m super excited, because it’s my tenth Tuesday Tidbit post! When I started writing these posts, it was just something I wanted to experiment with. I had all these little tips and tricks about writing, or blogging, or just good life advice, and I wanted to share them. I wasn’t sure if they’d stick, but they weren’t doing anyone much good sitting in my notebook.
And now, ten weeks later, it’s something that I really enjoy, and I look forward to putting on my blog regularly! And that’s kind of what this week’s Tidbit is all about.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with your posts! I’ve seen a lot of people say, “Oh, I want to talk about ‘x’, but it’s not exactly bookish, so it doesn’t go with my blog.” Who cares? Go for it! If you run a book blog, but you want to write a post about how well your garden is doing, post that shiznit.
#1- It’s your blog, you can post whatever you like, whenever you’d like.
#2- I actually love when bloggers branch out a bit! It makes me feel like I’m getting a little sneak peak into their lives, like I’m getting to know them better!
#3- I can only speak for myself here, but a post about something that isn’t specifically related to your “theme” makes me more interested in that post! If you run a book blog, and once in a while you post about mountain climbing, it makes me think, “Hey, that person loves books, and so do I. If that person loves mountain-climbing, maybe I will, too!”
So maybe you’ve been thinking about starting a new weekly feature, or writing a new post about something that doesn’t exactly match your blog’s theme. That’s okay! Go ahead and experiment, you might find out that it fits your blog better than you thought!
Thanks for reading!
