How to Not Let Your Blog Own You

BlogHer Spotlight

So many "how to blog better" articles are aimed at getting you more readers or more comments, but beyond stats, people need to learn how to blog calmly, with the blog being a tool to bring you what you want -- writing practice, social interactions, a memory book -- instead of a project that owns you.

Books and Reviews recently put together a wonderful list of tips helping you to approach blogging in a different frame of mind.

Never make blogging an obligation.- For me, this blog was a place where I could come and relax. Reading and writing had never been an obligation or a project for me, but rather an everyday part of my life so, back in 2010 I decided to make that side of my life public and create Books and Reviews. I love to share my thoughts (even if they are bad!) with all my readers!

Peruse Books and Reviews's list and then tell us what advice you'd add to her roundup.
