I have been consistently blogging(most of the time) for the past fifteen months and I did notice a change in how I write, photograph and draft up blog posts. I feel that my writing skills since then have developed to cater to a lifestyle blogging niche(hopefully I got that right). So here are a few tips of what I’ve learned so far!
Consistency is key.
I have been posting biweekly, every Thursday and Sunday. And if I have some free time to write a new post, I put it up on a Tuesday. I recently have been doing weekly videos on my Youtube Channel too. I observed that when I am consistently posting, my page views and video views go up on those days. But right now, I have been up to my ears with work. Although I have something whipping up for you next week!
Create a blog that you want to read.
Same goes for the blogs that I religiously read and get inspiration from. It is always very important to be as real as you absolutely can when you turn to my blog, whether it be writing a post or commenting on other’s posts. But most especially when I capture photos for my posts and what not because I always look for good photo quality. I am the type of person who appreciates the depth of space and (lots of) white too.
Make your own community.
After having this blog for about 15 months or so, I could see a gradual increase in my blog following. Although it does take awhile(not gonna lie) but when it gets to a point when it does, trust me, it’ll feel great! No number is too small or too big, as long as there is someone on the other end listening, it’ll give you the warm fuzzies. Trust me!
Be proud of your little space of the internet.
With all that work you put into establishing your blog, between the graphic design, photographs, writing, editing, filming and coding, It is hard not to feel so passionate and proud of your little space on the interwebs.
