1- How long have you been blogging?

Since January 2010

I started around 2 years ago, it was a sleeping blog, a post each month or two. I made a renovation 3 months ago.

2- How many hours per day do you dedicate to the blog?

I don’t blog daily, just when I need to publish some of my writings

Around 2 hours a day.

3- Has it been worth it so far?

Of Course

Certainly. I’m enjoying writing poetry and thoughts and sharing it with others, also it introduced me to amazing people who we love Arabic writing& poetry like me. We are best friends now.

4- How many page views does your blog get daily?

An average of 25 page loads

Around 15-25 in a normal day, ~100 when I post something new.

5- How many blogs do you have or write for currently?

This one only

One

6- How many hours do you dedicate to them every day?

RT answer 2 J

2-3 hours

7- Do you think one needs to post daily to be successful?

It depends on the blog; mine is about poetry and some of my already published writings. It doesn’t require a daily post.

 

No not necessary, I believe it’s better not, it’s blog not a daily newspaper.

8- Is there an ideal posting frequency?

No, I don’t think so.

I think 2 -3 times a week it’s an ideal posting frequency, if you want to get traffic and get noticed.  Don’t post more than one post a day.

9- What is the biggest blogging mistake you did?

That I didn’t start blogging earlier.

Didn’t put much effort to the design of the blog before.

Didn’t publish it in social media sites before (twitter, facebook).

Hesitated in publishing some good poems I thought it might not be interesting for others to read, and I discovered the opposite.

10- What is the biggest mistake you see in blog designs?

 

The one with too much ads. 

May I say more than one? If not, kindly choose one from below ;) :

 

- I never read long (I mean very long) articles no matter how interesting they are. Be short and concise. If you don’t have the skill to do so, use the (read more) link.

- Lots of word formatting (underlines, bold, colors. etc).

- Lack of color harmony, also phosphoric colors come on!!

- Big fonts or very tiny fonts.

 

11- Twitter is a distraction or a good promotional tool?

A good mixture of both

It’s a great tool. Regarding the stats, the majority of my blog visitors are from twitter.

12- Do you think that any professional should have a blog?

Yes, it is sign of their success

Depends on who and what the blog is about. In general yes.

13- If you could give an advice for a novice blogger, what would it be?

Don’t write long articles

Be yourself and write what’s in your mind, don’t worry if your readers will like it or not. Please show us the real you. (a friend of mine told me that and she was totally correct!)

 

Try not to edit what write (unless typos and grammatical errors). Don’t think a lot, what you wrote is just great. Click the F***** “post” button please, can’t u see we are waiting? 

14- What is the secret of your success, expressed in one word?

I will tell you when I will be at this stage ;)

Confidence.

15- If you could write a post on any blog in the world, which one would you pick?

Definitely Mahmoud Darwish.

My blog. Why should I post in someone else’s’ blog?
