Best Tips + Advice I’ve Learned For Blogging

01/20/2019

Over my two years of blogging, I’ve written many posts filled with lots of tips and advice for blogging. It has been a learn as I go process and I always love sharing what I’ve learned. So I decided to put all the best things I’ve learned in one place! Whether you are new to blogging or have been blogging for years, here are the best tips and advice I’ve learned for blogging that will hopefully help you!

Best Tips + Advice For Blogging

There is never a better time to start something than the present. Whether that is starting a blog, a new series on your blog, or anything else. You will never be 100% ready, so you might as well do it anyway.

Write about whatever brings you joy. Having a niche may help in certain areas, but if it doesn’t bring you joy to write and create a post about it then don’t write it. There are over 7 billion people in the world. It may take time, but someone will like the content you create.

Quality over quantity. Having a schedule is great but if you skip one blog post because you can’t come up with something to write about, that’s perfectly okay.

Keeping a list of blog post ideas is the best thing you can do. This way, if you don’t have an idea you have a list to look back on.

It’s important to manage your time wisely when blogging. There are a lot of steps that go into blogging, so having some form of a “schedule” is really helpful. I always find knowing what days I’m going to do certain tasks (take photos, write a post, etc.) helps me stay on top of everything.

You don’t need the fanciest equipment to have a blog. Some people use expensive cameras, and other’s use their phone. It really is up to you and what you can afford. If you do want to invest in a camera, do lots of research and know that the lens makes more of a difference than the camera body does.

Take lots of photos. You can never have too many photos, but you can definitely have too little.

Finding your own photography style takes time. Youtube is a great place to learn about everything from camera equipment to how to edit photos. You only ever get better at it by practicing and taking photos, so practice practice practice! Take lots of photos and try different editing styles to see which one you love the best.

Having a blog design that is easy to navigate and isn’t too overwhelming is important. This way people can easily read your posts. It’s also good to make sure it is mobile responsive since most people read blogs on their phones.

Promoting your own posts is so important. No one can read your post if they don’t know it’s there, so be sure to share them on social media and keep sharing them too. You have to be your own biggest cheerleader!

Reading and interacting with other blogger’s blogs is a really great way to make connections, plus there is nothing better than getting helpful tips and inspiration too!

Be you, not them. It’s so easy to get caught up with what everyone else is blogging about or what their style is. It’s perfectly okay to get inspiration from other’s, but don’t copy someone or feel like you have to do what someone else is doing. Stay true to yourself, because no one else can be you.

And those are some of the best tips and advice I’ve learned for blogging! I hope this helps and just remember to have fun, and that everything takes time and work.

    I completely agree that the best time to start is often right now. Life has a way of piling more and more things on top so starting something right away is the best way to guarantee that it actually gets done.

    I also love the idea of keeping a list with ideas for posts. I actually have a growing one both on my computer and my phone depending on where I was when the ideas came to me 🙂

    Thanks for the wonderful tips. This is such a great post for bloggers of all levels of experience. I hope you have a wonderful week.

    I always love tips to inspire! It’s so true that you need to stay true to who you are and write about what you like. It can be a long journey, but finding your blogging niche is just as important as enjoying what you’re writing about! Totally agree with just getting out there and doing the damn thing – no time like the present for sure, Kara xx

    Great tips dear, and I agree with you 100%, especially on fancy equipments – yes, you don’t need those. Learning a few photography skills with your camera phone would suffice. A good camera however, will take your photos to the next level. And yes, learn to edit your photos (but don’t overdo it though). Anyway, thanks for the wonderful read dear.
