Real Blogger Tips They Don’t Tell You:
Good morning everyone, now I’ve been blogging for over a year now, and every day I’m learning something new! But I will admit something “It’s been a huge learning curve” Whoever thinks blogging is just a walk in the park, is firstly wrong, secondly doesn’t have a blog. Maintaining and mangling a blog every day is hard work, and if you’re a blogger you know this!
So what I’m here to do this morning is go over some real blogger tips that will actually help you become a better blogger!
The most important tip I can give you is be you. Don’t try and be someone else. Your viewers aren’t there to read that! Someone has come to your blog to read your blog posts, so give them what they want.
Old news, late news:
Yeah, don’t repeat something you have just seen and thought, yeah I will just copy their blog post. Yes of course we take inspiration from other bloggers, that’s not a crime. But what you don’t want is a copy. Because in case they will just go to their blog for the original. Make sure you are being you and creating unique content for your readers.
Speaking your mind:
Honesty is the best policy, you have an opinion, then speak it. Don’t waste time jumping around the question, bloggers need to be honest, that way it’s a real blog post.
Oh yes, this really does help, it also helps with more collaborations. Having good photography makes sure a difference in a blog, and remember at the end of the day. “A picture speaks 1000 words” – Taking some time out of your day to learn product and people photography helps a lot down the line.
Don’t give up:
I know so many bloggers who blog for a few months, don’t see themselves as the next biggest blogger and go “This isn’t for me, forget it” Then you are just another blogger who gave up! Always learn and try something new!
Making blogger friends helps a lot, for example if you are a female blogger the hashtag #GirlGang is a platform for all female bloggers to talk, collaborate and help each other out on. For guys though its a bit more limited. But that doesn’t mean you can’t reach out to other people and collaborate with them!
Reach out to companies:
Don’t wait for companies to contact you, its like asking a girl out on a date. They aren’t always going to make the first move, if you like a company or a brand and you think you can benefit them, reach out to them! What do you have to loose?
Once you start you can’t stop:
Imagine your blog like a machine, if you non stop for a week that machine is going hard, cogs turning and its running efficiently, then if you stop for a couple weeks you are going to start to build rust. It’s not going to be the same when you come back to it. You can’t expect great results if you blog on and off… Keep pushing your blog, every day! Day in, day out!
