6 Simple and Essential Blogging Tips I’ve learned

November 9, 2017

The blog world has a lot of information. You need to know a little about everything. While there is too much information to give it to you all at once, I can share my top 6 blog tips I have learned throughout the years that can always be applied. If you have been blogging for a while, then this post can serve as a little reminder of things you might already know, but being reminded can’t hurt. If you are new to blogging this one is especially for you.

6 Simple and Essential Blogging Tips I’ve learned

    1. Never get comfortable. This world is fast and it is heavily saturated. The last thing you want to do is get comfortable where you are. Always evolve, always hustle and always learn new things. There’s always something new to learn with social media so keep reading articles on the newest apps, blogs, trends and always try to stay ahead of the curve. One thing I learned after years also is that you only get better by fine tuning every thing until you get the result you are looking for. Even then, think about how you can improve that result.
    2. Be Patient. I wish I could have told myself this in the past. It takes time to build a following, a voice, a blog, a style. Good things take time. If you are dying to have better photos, stronger content, more views, it will all come with time if you keep on hustling. It took me a good 4 years to start getting paid, about 5 years to have a better hang of what I was doing and it wasn’t until this year that I finally felt I found my style.
    3. Write it all down! I started having a content calendar only about 6 months ago. I have no idea how I survived so long without one! Not only that, but I also have notebooks and files that have lists of ideas for upcoming posts or projects. This helps so much when you are having writers block or have lost all your inspiration. Writing things down on paper (everything!!) helps you keep organized and stay in the present moment when you are not blogging. It’s all about being the most efficient you can and still be enjoying life.
    4.  Always give. Ok you have a fashion blog and are showing your daily outfits to the world, but what is your reader getting from you? Outfit inspiration? Styling tips? Make sure you always have the reader in mind when you create any content on your blog. What exactly is your reader looking for when they come to you? If you are just sharing pics of your face , unless you are extremely seriously ridiculously zoolander good looking, then you aren’t really helping anyone with any information or inspiration. Maybe show how to style an outfit, cute cafes to visit in your area, blogging tips, product recommendations, what the new trends are. Whatever it is, make sure who ever is coming to visit your blog will leave with new information.
    5. Promote Promote! When I first started my blog I was so embarrassed to promote my stuff. “How embarrassing, I have no readers… why should anyone come to my blog? Will I look super duper desperate?”  Well, I learned the hard way that if you do not promote you aren’t going to get ANY views. Promoting may feel shameless, but it is so essential to get yourself out there. Think of it this way, someone out there will be thrilled that you happened to pop up on their Instagram, Facebook or youtube feed. Promoting doesn’t have to be by just paying adds, there are also ways to get exposure by doing giveaways, collaborating with brands that will tag/expose you or just talking about it on your insta-stories.
    6. Make friends. Try and make friends in the world that you are trying to get into. If you are a fashion blogger make sure to go to as many networking events as you possibly can and make friends via social media! These friends might open doors for you or even answer some of the questions that you might not be able to find on the internet. It’s always nice to have friends in the world that consumes you as well because no one else will understand and get you (when it comes to social media stuff) quite like them.

      Working on getting the best content you can is always a constant I feel. Thanks so much for the support haha it did take me rather long to feel comfortable with a certain look to my pics for sure! As far as fashion though I have always kind of had my own style. xx
