Best blogging tips #BEDM

When you start a blog, you have so many questions. From where do I begin, who do I aim my blog at, to what do I want to blog about? Unfortunately these questions never really end. The more you blog, the more questions you start to have; now that I've started where do I want to go, is this what I want to write about? You'll have times where you hate your blog, times where you love your blog, times when you can't get enough of blogging to times when all you want to do is give up. 

The truth is each and every blogger has been there, whether they're willing to admit it or not. Over the years of blogging I have received so much advice. So today I'm going to share these tips with you and who knows, maybe they'll help that one blogger who is stuck in a rut. 



Get ideas from your audience - don't be afraid to engage with others and ask them what they like to read about. It just might inspire an idea for a great DIY post or open the door to new interests. 
Write for yourself  - don't write what everyone else is writing about. Write about stuff you're interested in. You'd be surprised how many people share the same interests. 
Love your existing readers - blogging is not about the numbers. Appreciate and show appreciation for those who keep coming back to read your blog, post after post. 
Be consistent - Whether you choose to blog everyday, once every two days or once a week, stick to it and be consistent about it. 
Share the knowledge - learn't something new? Share it with your readers, think of all the people who shared their knowledge and how much it helped you. 
Be truthful - go outside of the box and your comfort zone. Be honest, tell people about the good, bad and ugly of your life. People don't want to read about how "perfect" your life is.
Be yourself - just because everyone else is doing a certain theme or look with their blog doesn't mean you have to as well. The world is full of people trying to be like one another. So be that person who chooses to do something different. 
Engage with other bloggers - reach out and talk to your fellow bloggers. It's not only a way to get people to notice your blog, but it's also a way to meet new people who share this blogging passion with you. 
Write with personality - write your posts the way you want to read them and not as if they're from a perfect story book. Blogging is not suppose to be the perfect essays they all taught us about at school. It's a reflection of who you are as a person. 


.......and before you ask, yes that is me in a box. Don't underestimate just how petite I really am (lol).

  2. Especially love your tip that you should write for yourself while you should always keep your audience in mind, writing for yourself not only helps keep your content interesting but helps you to keep the passion for what you are doing. Thanks really enjoyed this post!
