Bogging? or Blogging? Helpful Tips from Caffe...


Hello and Welcome my Dear Dear Friend... It’s always a joy when you stop by to get your cup filled!  I have a nice pot of, ‘Tips for the New Blogger with a pinch of... Reminder Tips for Those Who Already Knew.’
Here we go... now Darling... what have you noticed about the online world since becoming a blogger?  Yes my Dear... that’s right!  It’s an enormous, never ending black hole, an always changing environment, that is filled with... Experts!  Everyone is now a pro on any given topic even if they’re not.  They have blogs, they write reviews, they have followers and are a part of some sort of community... they have access to Twitter, Triberr, Pinterest and Facebook, but truly Darling, does any of it matter?
But Caffe, what are you talking about and what does any of this have to do with blogging tips?  What am I talking about?  Hmmm... was it lipstick?  HA!  Just kidding... I know we weren’t talking about lipstick my Dear, but speaking of lipstick... have I told you that I found brands that were unleaded?  You know me, I couldn’t live without my little tubes of shimmer!  I purchased a tube of... wait a second... TIPS not LIPS!! 
Now that I got that in order... back to the business of blogging tips.
What I was talking about before I got distracted was this... bloggers are a dime a dozen.  There, I said it.  So now that I got that out into the open... how are you going to get your blog noticed with gazillions of other blogs out there in the BlogSphere?  
Umm, Caffe?  Isn’t that what you were going to tell me?  Me?  OH!...*ahem*... yes of course... because you know me Darling, I’m a MILF!  And MILFs can do anything
Tip #1- Determine what kind of blog you have or would like to have.  Nothing muddles my lipstick more than visiting a blog that has no rhyme or reason.  
Figure out your passion.  Is it cooking?  Is it an online family journal?  Are you venting?  Do you want to share with others your incredible knowledge of sea turtles?  I don’t know Darling.. but hey, you might like sea turtles and just not know it!   
An example of a blog dedicated to the blog owner’s passion is... The Big Green Bowl.  My Dear Friend Michael Ann has a passion for baking up... DELISHousness!!  I have to retouch my lipstick every time I visit her.
Tip #2- Write with passion.  There’s that word again!  But quite frankly Darling, as a reader, when perusing the Blogsphere, the blog that will catch my eye is the blog that I feel the energy jump right off my computer screen and suck me into their world.  You know what I’m talking about my Dear, you feel like you’re in the same room, sitting right next to this person like you have been BFF since the beginning of time.  That’s passion, that’s fire... and my Darling Friend, Mommy Bags, is a fine example of your best gal pal sitting and drinking a glass of red and nudging you for a refill.

Tip #3- Set yourself apart and be CREATIVE.  With a click of a button, one can change the color of the text.  With a few adjectives, one can be a storyteller.  With an amazing ability to lie create stories, one can become anybody they want... and most choose to become... an expert at what they love best.  

I know of a FABulous blog that is constantly thinking outside of the box and has become quite proficient at becoming a lipstick fiend, modern day Zsa Zsa, with the ability to say it like it is.  Need I say more about the creative expert that is Caffeinated OC Mommy?


My goodness, my cup is empty and I need to fix my lipstick.  I hope I’ve given you something to think about the next time you start a new post or even a new blog.  Does any of it matter?  Yes Darling, it matters to one person and one person only... your biggest fan, and that fan is you!  Have a lovely day my Sweet...  Ta Ta!

  1. Darling, I think I adore you almost as much as you unashamedly adore yourself! LOL! (and I totally mean that in a good way, babe)... I enjoyed this post! Glad you finally found your unleaded lipstick! And with your expertise in changing font colors, you can show us exactly what COLORS you've purchased too! How cool is THAT!?

    Just one question darling...I'm a lip gloss addict...I hardly ever wear lip"stick," but I'm a total gloss-a-holic. I even pay ridiculous amounts of money for a special kind that I adore that is no longer sold in the US (I import it from the UK...how terribly unpatriotic of me...but come on...it's my favorite LIP PRODUCT!! I knew you'd understand). Anyway, my question is...am I poisoning myself with all my lip gloss? Does the gloss have lead in it too? Someone please tell me it doesn't, because otherwise I'll be mad as a hatter by the time I'm...well, now that you mention it...I may have crossed into that territory already...

    Love you darling!

    1. Completely understand my Dear! Guess what?? Europe actually has regulations for their cosmetic industry... unlike the USA... what that means? they have to label everything! So be unpatriotic and buy UK cosmetics, the British are coming.. the British are coming... xoxo

  6. I found this blog from Blogaholic (you were the first one to comment on my profile actually) and I’m so happy I’ve found this place! I have to tell you that I adore your writing style; it put a smile on my face, which I really needed today. I’ve read a lot of 101 Blogging Tips and I have to say yours not only gave me new information, but it wasn’t in the “DO THIS OR FAIL!” type of way I’ve seen others use. Thanks for the tips it's time for me to put them to good use! You have a new follower and I cannot wait to read through your other posts!
