18 Random Blogging Tips

I've been blogging for just over 3 years now and although I'm no expert I have picked up a few tips along the way! These little bits of advice won't make you an overnight blogging sensation but I hope they are useful to you guys either way! Don't forget to leave your own tips in the comments!

1. Only blog about what you are passionate about, not the latest trend
2. Always resize your photographs to 'Original Size' if using blogger, the quality will be much better.
3. Buy a custom URL, it makes it easier for other people to remember and looks more professional.
4. You don't need a fancy camera but images are everything on a blog. Learn how to edit your photographs, even if thats just chucking a filter over them.
5. It's important to have several social media platforms and link them if you are happy for them to be public.
6. Don't try and stick to a blogging schedule unless you're really happy with doing so. Blogging should be fun and not forced, don't ruin it for yourself.

7. Lighting is so important when taking photos but you don't need a professional lighting set up, natural light usually works just as well!
8. Get on Twitter and share share share! Don't forget to be friendly and engage with other bloggers too.
9. Try not to buy things 'just to blog about them'. I know a lot of beauty bloggers are guilty of this one and its not a good habit to keep.
10. Sometimes its good to take a break. Its easy to tell when a someone hasn't enjoyed writing a blog post.
11. If you are offered free products to try out only accept those you are genuinely excited about. Blogging isn't about getting your hands on all the freebies.
12. Don't be afraid to try something new, if blogs were all the same they would be boring.

13. Keep a blogging notebook to write down ideas as and when they come to you.
14. Don't start a blog expecting to make money from it. The big bloggers put a lot of time and effort in to get where they are.
15. Invest in a nice easy to use blog layout if you can afford one.
16. Don't be afraid to comment on other blogs, we are all friends here!
17. Try not to worry if you don't have many followers, I only had 3 followers for for the first 6 months of having a blog and I still loved it just as much as I do now!
18. Most importantly have fun! Use your platform to talk about things that matter to you and enjoy it!

  1. I think these are really important tips and things people overlook! I think everyone at some points feel like they have to talk about the latest trend or post on a schedule but I don't think it's that important as long as you a) post regularly (like, once a week even) and b) have an interesting voice and friendly manner :) I also think Twitter has made a big difference to my blog, although I feel like engagement has been really down in the last few months, I at least have a small circle of people supporting my posts & I get nice feedback on there etc! It's nice to be connecting with other bloggers - especially as I'm so anti-social IRL haha. I also agree about the importance of a break from blogging. Sometimes you need to step back & recharge. 18 is by far the most important :) I would like to buy my own domain once I'm back in work, but I don't know where to buy from that's affordable? Any suggestions?! xx

    1. Thank you :) I think keeping a blogging schedule is super hard and its just not worth the stress to me! twitter is one of the best things I've ever done for my blog to be honest and I couldn't recomend blogging chats enough, even if I am crap at remembering when they are on!

      I bought my URL from godaddy. It cost me around £1.40 for the first year then I bought a few more years for around £5/£6 :) xx
