10 Blogging Etiquette Tips for Newbies + eBook FLASH Giveaway

Happy Friday Lovelies! I'm ridiculously excited that tomorrow morning my little family of three is hopping on a plane to the beautiful islands of Hawaii!!  While I'm busy running around today making preparations, I have a special guest post and giveaway that will be extremely helpful in your blogging toolkit.   I have had the pleasure to read a complimentary copy of Jacy's eBook that you are going to learn about below and can honestly say it contains invaluable information to help you navigate the blogging community!  With that, I warmly welcome Jacy to BaxtronLife!

Hey beauties!  I'm Jacy Lee Pulford, an author/artist from New England. I blog over at, well, a blog with the same name as mine and have a shop, well, with my name as well. You can call it lazy. I like to call it branding. This week I am on a blog tour to promote my new eBook "10 Blogging Etiquette Tips for Newbies" which is available right now for only $2.99. Blogging can be so much fun...am I right? As a new blogger, I've made a lot of mistakes. While someone might say it's fine, some mistakes had lasting effects on how readers interacted with my blog and with me.

This is why I'm passionate about blogging etiquette and the do's and don'ts of being a new blogger. Even if your blog is just for you and family, there is a code of conduct that should be learned. No worries, it's not rocket science. Back in March I wrote a blog post entitled "5 Blogging Etiquette Tips for Newbies" which is still one of my most popular posts ever in my three years of blogging. Do you know what this tells me? That you guys care too!

So I've compiled a list of 10 tips for newbie bloggers discussing how to behave in certain situations, using proper manners and even how to act towards other bloggers. Let's face it: people can be rude. Online or offline, it's the truth. Etiquette is about respect, politeness, integrity, honesty and trust among any and all groups of people. Etiquette is for everyone but just like anything, if you don't have it, you must learn it.

Here are some topics covered in the eBook:
- "Link to actual source"
- "Leave a comment, not a sales pitch"
- "You're not the gramma' police"
- "Respect personal lives"

You will learn how to hold yourself to a higher standard within the blogging community and what we "older" bloggers really think about how newbies behave. 17 pages packed with knowledge, real-life experiences and links to great resources.

Does this sound like a book you would love to read? Do you want a FREE copy? I'm giving away one free copy of the eBook to a lucky reader! Just use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter. I also have a BIG 15% discount code for my shop over on my Facebook page! Oh yeah, along with another giveaway where one Facebook fan will win a custom blog or business logo. Whoa. I know. So after you enter below, head on over to my page, like it and enter!

As a writer, I want to inspire hearts and enrich minds. I've been blessed and I want to bless others. God's love is so amazing, isn't it? I love how He can transform a life and turn ashes into beauty! That is what my next book project is about. A devotional featuring real-life stories from fellow believers about how "No One Will Ever Love You...{like Jesus does.}" It is because of His unselfish love that we have life and are able to love others.

So I will leave you with a prayer and hope that you will support this project:
Lord Jesus, thank you for allowing us the freedom to choose You. It is in our choice, in our own personal devotion that our relationship with you can grow deep. Let us be like the trees by the river; unmovable and rooted. Bless each reader on this blog. I pray we will put you first and learn to love and respect one another the way You love and respect us. In Jesus Name, Amen.

    I hate when people don't do proper spacing and paragraphs, if everything is one big jumbled mess I wont read it.

  3. I am a newbie, so I have a lot to learn :). Plagiarizing is a big pet peeve though.

  6. I don't really have any pet peeves, I'm one who doesn't follow the rules so I don't feel like there should be any. Just do what you love :)

  7. My pet peeve is definitely when people ask me to follow them. If someone comments on my blog I'll visit their blog anyway and decide for myself if I want to follow them.

  8. I also don't like that. I understand that you can't reply to every single comment if you get hundreds, but some people don't reply even if they only have a few. The worst is if you ask them a question about something they posted and they never answer you.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I don't always have time to respond to each one, but I do read them! XO
