In this one year of blogging I have learnt so many things new or old. I was so cheeky with blogging. Yes I was because I didn't know where to start and how to make a good post. The things I have learnt are:

- Never copy someone else's post in your blog - NAY

- Bring out your own ideas - YAY

- Do not beg people to follow you - NAY (they will automatically do that if they are interested in your blog)

- Your daily life photographs with blog posts - Wow! YAY

- Your sidebar is not a hungry crocodile, do not stuff it with millions of widgets or ads - NAY

- People love good looks and latest trends, share them over in your blog - YAY

- The blog author never replies to readers comments, too bad! - NAY

- Get a design for your blog that should be neat and classy, not mish mash of colours - YAY (your blog is your space of thoughts, not an amusement park)

- Do not keep changing the size of your photos, like there is one post with different sizes of pictures, do not play with your pictures by adding so many graphics and effects on them - NAY (all that really disturbs the sight)

- Be social, if a new reader visits you, leaves a comment and follows, go back do the same! - YAY

- Do not center your text in blog posts - NAY (align it to the left always, that is what most readers like)

- Always give a link back to the topics, pictures or stuff you take from other blogs - YAY

- Do not add too many buttons on your sidebar - NAY (better make a separate page for that thing)

- Select most readable font, font-size and font-colour otherwise you will see me say 'bye'! - YAY (hehe)

- Do not blog about what you will be or what you want to be - NAY (blog about what you are and how you live it)
