Advice for Newbie Bloggers | Let’s Talk Bookish

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by J. R. @ Eternity Books. Also, this is a SCHEDULED POST, that will come out one day after my exams results day sooooo yikes. I thought it would be wise to schedule this because who knows if I’m going to be up for blogging then… eek.

LOVE what you do

I know this is the most generic advice to give ever, but sometimes things are generic for a reason. This is soososososoo true. If you decide to do blogging to get popularity or make money, I’m not sure if it will be as successful than if you didn’t. First of all, blogging isn’t YouTube, I don’t think you can make that much money out of it. Second of all, when you’re passionate about something, you do it no matter what, and this is something that can help you to become successful in what you do, but also leads onto my next point.


Don’t do it for popularity! Do it because you love it! I was mind-blown when I hit 100 followers, and I’m so happy with where my blog is at now because I’m able to interact and talk to people about things that I love, and that is truly the most amazing and enjoyable experience. The community to me is the most special thing about blogging, so make sure you don’t miss out on it (which leads onto my next point!).

Interact with others!

Leave thoughtful comments on other blogs – start a discussion! Everyone in the book blogging community are such amazing and beautiful people, everyone is so friendly and this is the no.1 way to 100% enjoy yourself and have a great time blogging – also opening up important discussions like mine about Throne of Glass and ACOTAR.


Something I really struggle with. It’s not about posting 5 posts a week if it means posting nothing the next week, it’s about posting regularly, which isn’t easy. The key is consistency. You have to remember that although blogging is a hobby (and there should be absolutely ZERO pressure involved!) it’s also a kind of commitment too (but if that means having a negative affect on you or your mental health then definitely don’t).

Those are my tips! Hope they’re somewhat helpful to any newbies out there 🙂

  3. YES – I absolutely agree with everything you wrote! I think the most important aspect is blogging because you love it, because if other people notice your passionate about blogging, they will read what you have to say and also like it because they know it comes from your heart!
    Consistency is also very important, I have major issues with that haha!
    Happy reading!

  4. Thanks for the advice.
    As one of the newbies, I really appreciate it.
    Time will tell if I can hack the consistency, and I’m not sure how to go about the interacting with others bit yet, but i think I have 1 and 2 down, so here goes…

  5. Tbh I’m struggling with both of those things at the moment since I have so much school work going on – I need to work on time management! don’t worry if you end up doing most of your posts and interaction over the summer 🙂


  6. Lol.. I’m much older than you so our struggles are dissimilar. I just find that most Muslim fiction writers aim for a much younger audience than I write for. Still not sure if I’d find my readers in this blogging community but, here’s hoping…
