Very informative post, Georgina! Thank you :-)I also despise Captcha and will even avoid commenting on a blog if I have to do it. Which is really bad and lazy of me.Keep up the great work!Liesl xxxhttp://www.pretty-random-things.com/
Thank you Liesl - I know a lot of people discard commenting on a blog altogether when the Captcha pops up. So annoying!
AMEN about the captcha. I swear, this advice is all over the internet, so I'm not sure how bloggers are missing it. Anyway. Great tips!
:) - I got about 5 bloggers to turn it off after this post lol
Great tips, and I would suggest all of them! Especially the commenting ones...I can't even tell you how many blogs I visit that have a thousand followers, but no comments. You get what you give!! Say NO to captchas!!
Thank you Janna - I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
Georgina, that are very helpful blogging tips. Thanks a lot.http://tobechidaniel.blogspot.com/
Great information Georgina. I am definitely going to visit some of the sites you mention. I really dont know why people leave captcha on at all! I was told I should have a seperate facebook page for my blog, but I have yet to do that. Have a good day!
Thank you Laura! Let me know when you create a facebook page, I will stop by and like it. It's definitely important when you need to send a media kit out and want to show your complete reach :)
These are awesome tips.. especially the captcha. I am going to remove mine right away..
You'll definitely notice a difference :)
Great tips, Georgina! I've been blogging for many years and I've also learned not to sweat the small stuff. Sometimes blog readership with roller coaster and that's okay. If you're writing for yourself, it is worth it in the end.
That's a wonderful ideology Michelle :)
Making sure I'm not a 'No-Reply' commenter has been one of the best tips I've gotten so far, and to turn off the word verification. I HATE CAPTCHA! Every time I have to do one, it bugs the cr*p out of me! :)
Haha me too but I still leave the comment but leave annoyed.com
Thanks so much for posting these useful tips! I just turned off my captcha (can't believe I didn't think to do that sooner!)xxCarol-Anne http://www.thestylishstudent.com

I'd love if you did a post on how you scored the freelance gigs from blogging!
I will definitely draft one - there are so many resources! In the meantime please send me a quick email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a few invites to invite-only freelance websites :)
Agreed with most of them!My advice is not to pretend that you are a model.Simply be yourself!!!!xo

Great tips - thanks for sharing. I hate those CAPTCHAS!
Hey Georgina, I'm a new blogger but literally the first thing I did when creating my blog was remove the captcha things. They're everywhere! I'll even go to comment on videos or tvshows, and when the captcha box is there I turn the opposite direction. Thanks so much for the info!Would it be okay if I just stuck my link at the bottom of my comment?http://astro-aspirations.blogspot.com/
I appreciate each and every one of your comments. Know that if a comment is left by a blogger, I always take the time to have a peek at their page also.
