One of the weirdest things about blogging is that not everyone wants to leave comments.

I take that as a compliment, especially since no one has sent me anything bad yet.
There’s one question I get more often than any other. The odd thing is that I get this same question outside of this blog. I get it on my other blog. I used to get it from my newsletters.

My name is Mitch Mitchell and I’m many things. Today, I’m a blogger. I have 4 blogs of my own and have written for many others; still do in fact. I’ve been blogging since 2005 but for my most popular blog, I’m Just Sharing (which is this one of course), I’ve been writing for 13 1/2 years.

In this case, I’m repurposing a very long blog post that had a lot of comments when it was first published in 2014.

was 55, now 61
I also wrote it a couple of weeks after I turned 55; hence, the idea for 55 tips and ideas about blogging. I’m going to add a tip here instead of changing the title. I’ve only kept the comments from people who still have blogs, thus have links going to those blogs. Only 2 of the people below are still blogging on a regular basis; who knows, maybe some newer bloggers, or bloggers I’m connected to who didn’t comment the first time around, will show up.

I have over 535 articles on this site specifically about blogging. I have nearly 150 videos about blogging as well. I’m not going to say my entire life is about blogging, but I’ll put my general knowledge about blogging with anyone else in the world; yeah, I said that!
Only one of us is a blogger
I just finished a series of videos on the topic of blogging, after I was requested to share tips about it. I’m going to put every one of those videos on this article, and I’m going to give two that I didn’t address in any of those… because I can. I’m not going to promise that I didn’t cover it in any of these 55 blogging tips I wrote back in 2014, but I believe this is new stuff; let’s find out.

Let’s get this out of the way; I’m not against using SEO to help you get where you want to be when it comes to your blog or your website. As a matter of fact, it’s still important to highlight your main topics or business just to have a chance to compete with others who are in your field of expertise. I’d even go so far as to say that exhibiting good SEO principles will put you ahead of everyone else who isn’t even trying to use it; absolutely 100%!
