*Originally published in 2014 on my lifestyle site, Sunny Sweet Days. I’m moving blog content over here! This post will be updated for 2019 soon.
This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but in a sad twist of WordPress fate…my entire server crashed as I hit the publish button. It’s only fitting that a post about blog TIPS is one that goes awry, so I’m going to lead this discussion off with another “rule” for blogging success: Always save your work. Even if it’s a silly roundup with tons of links and no words. I might have wasted an entire afternoon curating these links and adding them to this post before it all went poof. I’m not sure if I remembered to include everything from last time, but I certainly tried. So, let’s try this again?
I know that there is an overabundance of blog information out there in internet-land, and it can be absolutely overwhelming. In an effort to streamline those sources, I asked my blog buddies to send me their best blog tips. From staying organized to creating content, this list of resources has you covered. Take a lazy Sunday morning and get cozy with these tips!

Bonus: This article from Entrepreneur has some great tools for bloggers to use. It’s originally written for freelance writers and entrepreneurs, but there are some helpful hints! Read it here!
Bloggers Get Social is an online community of entrepreneurs, writers, and creatives who are looking for focus and innovative topics to grow their blogs. It’s about monetization, support, and getting sh*t done.
Every business day for three weeks (that’s fifteen days!), there will be a daily email with tons of information about a specific topic. There will be additional materials (think videos, printables, and a few surprises), and the Facebook group will be active with new ideas and questions posed by both myself and our community coordinator.
You will have the chance to read and absorb the information, participate in our discussion, and complete the daily challenges. Don’t worry! There’s no homework and each challenge shouldn’t take more than fifteen or twenty minutes. Set aside time in the morning or before bed to pop in!
What’s your favorite blog tip that you’ve learned along the way?
