5 Blogging Tips For Beginners
I recently put up one of those question boxes on instagram stories and was shocked that a lot of you had questions for me about blogging! I’ve been blogging for so long now and I’ve definitely learned a thing or two during my journey that I would love to share with you all. Looking back, there are A LOT of things I wish I could change and do differently. However, all those mistakes led me here and the opportunities I’ve gained through my little slice of the internet have made it all worth it! I still have so much more growth to achieve but I definitely want to help you all get started on your journey!I Even though there are so many blogs out there these days, I wholeheartedly believe there is still room for more.
So let’s start from the beginning: here are the top 5 actionable steps you should take in order to launch your blog!
Identify your topics / verticals you want to cover (i.e motherhood, fitness, food, etc). Try to keep your topics more niche, you don’t want to cater to everyone but you want your content to be unique so people follow you!
Identify the audience are trying to reach (example: first time moms) and build your content strategy while always keeping this person in mind.
Create relevant and VALUABLE content that caters to the audience you're trying to reach but stays in your topic lane. Try to resist the urge to post off topic content, especially on your social media accounts.
Brush up on your iPhone photography skills and practice editing in apps like VSCO and Snapseed. Or research photographers (shameless plug) in your area that can help you produce visuals for your blog and social media accounts!
Be consistent!! It's going to take time to build your audience but as long as you're consistent I promise you will get there.
