How to Get People to Follow Your Blog! (A Less Embarrassing Version of Part One)

A little more than a year ago, I published a post about how to get followers on your blog, and, like everything I posted before 2020, I cringe whenever I remember it.

Even though I agree to some extent with everything I said, I definitely could’ve phrased some things better and formatted the post nicely. So today I’m revisiting the post and giving my fresh perspective on the things I wrote and some extra advice.

All My Thoughts on Blog Hopping // Why I Do It, My Blog Hopping Process, & more

I’m a little nervous to write this post.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a blogging discussion, and discussions, especially the ones related to blogging, are the hardest posts for me to write. I feel like I’ve only been publishing “easy” posts lately, like tags, lists, wrap-ups, etc. This isn’t to say that these types of posts don’t take a lot of effort to put together, but they’re easier for me to write since they all have a structured format. Man do I miss uploading a blogging discussion, one that I structured entirely by myself, and getting to hear everyone’s thoughts on the topic I talked about.

How My Blog Has Changed Since I Started It + 1-year Blogiversary Feedback Form // It’s almost my brain child’s first birthday 🥺

On February 26, 2019, I wrote and published my first ever post on Caitlin Althea.

One year is such a huge milestone, and a lot can change in a year, as evidenced by my blog. If you’ve been following me since the beginning, you must know that my blog has changed a lot—in terms of content, post types, blog aesthetic—you name it! And as I near my one-year anniversary, I think it’ll be fun to look back on all the ways my blog has changed since I first started it.

WordPress Tips & Tricks Part TWO // ft. Making Post Titles Bold, Centering Multiple Images & more

A few of you might remember when I first made a post on WordPress tips & tricks.

I look back on that post and cringe sometimes. Because how did I, a baby blogger, think I was qualified to give that kind of advice??…. But somehow, it’s my most liked post on this blog, and here I am with enough advice to post a part two of that post! Hopefully, this one will be better formatted, more helpful, and less embarrassing? (In all seriousness though, I’ve figured a few cool tricks out, and I can’t wait to share them!!)

What Makes me Keep Reading a Post? + Tips on How to Implement those Things!

Congrats. You’ve gotten me to visit your blog and click on one of your blog posts. Now here’s how to make sure that I read your post until the very end! (Because I have limited time each day, and I’d rather spend it reading quality posts.)

Hello, I’m back with another how-to post! I love reading these kinds of posts, and I’ve tried my hand at writing some of my own. Am I completely unqualified to write them? Probably. But that’s not gonna stop me because they’re so fun to write, and this is my blog! Plus, maybe some people actually find them helpful or something.
