I’d like to start off by saying, I am no expert on blogging. I know some people have issues with bloggers with under 1mil followers giving advice on blogging but I have a few little tips that I’d like to share. Also, because I’m only two years in I feel like maybe I’m closer to being new than others. If that makes any sense.
PICK A NAME YOU LIKE
Your name is such a vital part of your blog. It’s your branding. I’m pretty boring so I just went with my name however if you’d prefer a more snazzy name then that’s fine too. Your blogs name is so important to your whole blog so be sure to pick a name that you really enjoy. A safe bet is always your name or a pseudonym.
CHOSE WHAT TO WRITE ABOUT
I’m really not a huge fan of niches as I felt a little trapped before when I stuck to a niche. Mainly because I felt weird betraying it but also because I wasn’t really into the niche I’d picked. I also quite like wriggling about into different categories. Your blog doesn’t really need a niche but maybe more of a guiding idea. My blog is mostly based on self-development kinda stuff so I kinda stay within the realm of posts that may help people live their best lives.
START WITH WHAT’S FREE
Please do not go out and spend loads of money on blogging stuff right away. I didn’t buy anything for my blog until I was about a year in. Many people are under the misconception that you have to spend hundreds on a camera and equipment. My advice is to not make a big investment until you’re really sure that blogging is really something you like to do.
GET ON WITH PLANNING
Once you’ve done all of these steps then get on with your planning. Have a general idea of posts that will be going out in the next few weeks. It might be a good idea to do some bulk planning ahead of time to ensure that you can get into the swing of putting out regular content.
Thank you so much for reading, I hope that this post might be able to help you out. If you’re a new blogger I wish you the best of luck with your blog. If you need any advice then my inbox is always open. Have a lovely day and stay beautiful.
