Hey Yall!

 
I am so thrilled to be here today. When I first came across Polly's blog, I was instantly hooked! She is amazing & so is her blog & don't even get me started on how smitten I am with her shop because I would go on and on!! Seriously love it all. :) Thank you Polly for having me here today! I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself. As you can see from the picture above - I'm Cassie. My blog is Live.Laugh.L0ve. where I share the story of our beautiful, crazy journey through life! I love Jesus, I am a wife to Hubby & a momma to two adorable little boys. I also own a little handmade shop called ccy designs! :)

Today I wanted to share 5 tips I've learned while blogging.

1. Blog Design - Let me first say content is what holds your readers, good content = loyal followers. But your blog design is what sucks them in. I do follow blogs that don't have great blog designs - but not everyone will do that. Want proof - I started a blog called Embrace Your Life - I did the blog design, it was not great but the content is {it's a group of woman embracing life} and Digger did a blog design for us and we have already got 3 new followers, probably because the blog doesn't hurt their eyes as soon as they land on it. ;) There are tons of wonderful blog designers and I do mean wonderful, that do great work. :) Here are two of my favorite ladies - here & here.

2. Connect - Connecting with other bloggers is so important. They aren't going to know your blog exists if you don't take the time to connect with other bloggers. Comment, comment, comment! Tweet, e-mail - the blogging community is truly wonderful and I have met so many amazing woman by doing this!

3. Be nice. - You think I'm kidding. Remember that saying If you don't have anything nice to say - don't say anything at all. Well it applies while blogging too. If you can't be nice don't say anything. There have been times I have not commented on a blog because what I would say wouldn't be something nice. You have to remember that it is their blog and they are allowed to write whatever they like on it.

4. Be you. - I can't stress this enough. Being yourself is the best thing you can do. I love coming across a blog that I really connect with the blogger because you can tell she is 100% being true to who she is.

5. Have fun. - Most importantly, have fun! Remember this is blogging. This is a place for us all to share whatever it is we like to share. Don't let it become a job, have fun with it. Meet others and live it up! :))

Thanks again Polly!
