Feature and Follow Friday

 Feature and Follow Friday is an awesome blog-hop hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison CanRead

The question is: Confess your blogger sins! Is there anything as a newbie blogger that you’ve done, that as you gained more experience you were like — oops?

My blog will turn two in May, but I still don’t feel like I know as much as I probably should.  Here are some things that I learned:

Organization is a must – I view my blog mail and keep a calendar in Outlook, which helps me a lot.  The process I used at the beginning (notebooks and post-its anyone?) didn’t work as well.

Proofread - When I started blogging I would write my review directly in Blogger, needless to say that didn’t go that well (English is my second language to boot!).  Now I write my reviews in MS Word which helps me catch bad spelling and grammar, and I make sure to proofread.

Be careful with pictures – Now I am very careful with pictures, I use clip art or take my own pictures to edit, and it’s a lot safer :)  I used to think that any picture out there in the WWW was for grabs, now I know better.

That’s all I can think of, how about you?  What are your blogger sins?


  1. Those are the first mistakes I've made. However, I still write my reviewing schedule on post-it notes :P It's not the most conventional way of being organized but for now it works..until it doesn't.

    & I really like your blog! New GFC Follower.
    Happy Friday!

  2. great point about doing it in word first. I always worry that the cutting and pasting will take away from the look, but I think I should do that instead of having my bad grammar out for the world to see.

    Oh, I type right into blogger. Oops. Great idea to use Word, first!

    I completely agree about the whole proof-reading thing.... I've seen some pretty hilarious typos on blogs!

  5. I'm into my third year, and I'm still learning. =) Good luck!
