Hi everyone! I wrote a post called The Blogging Guide almost a year ago! I have grown so much since then, and learned a ton more. After over a year of blogging regularly, I think I have gained some knowledge, and I would love to share it!
Post Original Content
People don’t like to read the same posts over and over. While yours may be the only blog they read, chances are they read multiple blogs, and will get bored if all posts are the same. I do a lot of pretty basic posts, but I try to keep them original with the style! Think of posts not many people have written, or put your own twist on them.
Your readers can tell if you are lying about loving a product just for more views, or just because you are sponsoring something. Don’t post about a product unless you genuinely love it, or you are misleading the readers.
One Type Of Blogger?
Don’t feel like you have to limit yourself to one “theme” of blogging. I write beauty, fashion, and lifestyle posts. When I first started this blog, the name of it was fashion related, but I realized after a week that I didn’t only want to write about fashion. Now I mainly do lifestyle posts, so I am happy I didn’t commit to fashion. Experiment with posts you write to see what comes most natural.
Be Active On Other Blogs
Read other blog posts and leave nice comments, or give the post a like! Not only will more people see your blog, but you may even make a friend in the process! The blogging community is so big, but so welcoming. Don’t be afraid to reach out to others. One of the best things that came from it were all the friends I made.
Those are all the tips I have for now, but I hope they were helpful! Leave your own tips in the comments below 🙂
