What to Blog About?

July 24, 2012



OK, yes, the picture is really dumb, but really-- what blogger doesn't have a hard time choosing what to blog about? The hardest thing is sitting down and actually making something. Then you have to take pictures, download on the pc, upload them to the post and write the post! Pheww, needless to say it is a lot of work to compose a blog post. I was helping a friend set up her blog the other day and we were talking about this. I just wanted to share a few tips with my blogger friends <3

1. Blog EVERYTHING
Yup, that means everything. Every time you cook or bake something- take pictures. Every time you go somewhere- take pictures, every time you dress up- take pictures! If I only did things for the blog-- it would lose personality and would be a whole lot more work. Taking pictures of stuff you are already doing in everyday life will lift the load tremendously!

2. Don't blog everyday
Not that it is bad or anything: if you are a super blogger who posts everyday, good for you! I will be the first to admit, however, that blogging everyday ( I've tried it) is exhausting. And not only tiring, but frustrating. Blogging is a commitment and constantly trying to think of posts can drain your enthusiasm ( and people can tell when that happens, trust me!)

3.Blog what you love
Is is cliche? Yes. But true. If you blog stuff you don't enjoy, who's going to want to read about it? Your followers are supporting you-- make them feel special! Blog about things you are passionate about-- it makes it all more interesting! No one likes a grouchy blogger :-)

I hope these help! Just some blog "golden rules" I try to live by- haha. What tips do you have to share? Please feel free to leave comments and tell us what you think <3
