My Blogging Tips

1. When you think of a blog post idea write it down, no matter where you are or what you are doing. There have been countless times I have had an idea and thought “oh I'll write that down when I get home and I get home and my mind blanks on the idea. I usually text myself any ideas and look at them later.

2. Plan your content. Write posts in advance. I tend to plan weekly rather than monthly as it can be overwhelming to think a month in advance and I find new things will always pop up (new ideas, brand collaborations, sponsored posts etc.) and my monthly plan would have changed by the end of the month.

3. Photos: use your own or find free stock photos – some I really like and have used on the blog are from:

Ivory Mix
Pixels and Lattes
Jaque Amadi
Kreanille Design

4. Re-read you blog posts and read them out loud.

5. Have a balance of content you like to write and what your readers want to see.

6. Plan out your social media posts using an online organiser. I use Hootsuite but, I know there are some other good ones out there like Buffer. Scheduling tweets and Instagram’s makes it so much easier to be an active social media user and help promote you blog.

7. Create series on your blog. It can catch a reader’s attention and continue to bring them back to your blog to see more. I have many series on my blog which include: The Intern Files, Fashion Friday, OOTD, Sunday Sharing, Wellness Wednesday and more, which I will be announcing soon. I don’t post one of these posts every week but, if I can't think of something to post I know I can always add to one of my series.
