Every week Dr Tanya posts a quote for discussion on her Salted Caramel blog. She says that she found this one on a blog post about advice for writers.
“The only truly universal writing advice is ‘If it works, it works.’”
I think this is a fair comment although I don’t know if it is really advice as it doesn’t tell the writer to do anything specific.
I suppose that you could say that it means just try different things until you find something that works for you. Once you have found it stick to it even if others tell you that you are doing it wrong. These days everyone on the internet wants to tell you what you are doing wrong. Apparently, according to some influencers, we older folk do everything wrong from peeling a banana to writing a blog post. But at least most of us can spell.
A new blogger, especially a hobby blogger needs to learn some basic rules which we’ve talked about before but apart from that I think there can be as many different blogging styles as there are bloggers. If hosting a niche blog about your favourite hobby and posting once a week works for you then that’s just fine. You’ll know it’s working if you are getting regular likes and comments and your following is steadily building.

I can relate to this absolutely 💯

Those posts and videos that say “You’ve been doing such and such wrong.” annoy the heck out of me. I know they are clickbait but I don’t like being told that by people young enough to be my grandchildren if I had any.
Yes,, I tend to find them irritating too.
