Hello dear friends! Hope you're doing great!
Today i'm going to share some secrets for a successful blogging start up.
Or should i say 6 secrets i wish i knew when i started blogging?
Well blogging is all about learning from the mistakes, so this post is going to help new bloggers, avoid some mistakes and make a powerful start up.
Search deep inside you and find what you really love. My heart is broken in two pieces. The one loves fashion and the other adores crafting. Especially handmade jewellery.
I was pretty lucky cause, what i was dreaming even from my childhood, has came truth and i'm very thankfull living from what i really love: jewellery making and fashion blogging.
So it's really important to know what excites you.
Even better focus on one and only theme. Is it food, fashion, crafts, travels or something really different? Find your emotion out and focus only on this.
This is one of the mistakes i told you above.
You know there are bloggers who spend about 2 hours daily on commenting on other blogs. I always believe that this is a waste of time, but recently i changed my mind.
I hate spammers that comment on every single blog, without even reading the post and say something like "cool" or "lovely post" e.t.c.
I'm pretty sure that you all had an experience like this and it's really dispiriting.
What i mean is to find blogs that you really like. Bloggers that have the same passion with you. Post that you really feel the need to comment.
Now i've find about 15 blogs that i really appreciate and i'm so glad about my small blog family. Cause believe me, the blogging loneliness is too hard...
You all know the power of social media, but sometimes we have to help them grow even more.
Firstly find your audience. Become member on several groups with bloggers like you.
Pin your favorite posts.
Share on the right time. Make a research and find which hour works best for you.
Instagram is your mini blog. Share images from your posts, updates, giveaways e.t.c.
Don't spam. Maybe you need to share a post for more that once a day, you can at least use a different pic, or even better make a question about your post. It's the best way to make engagements and bring more traffic to your blog.
Try to write, just like you speak. There is nothing better than the personal style writing. So don't be afraid of making jokes, or be informal cause this is you and you have to support it.
Be fixed on your beliefs. I use only natural cosmetics and this may be something that not all the brands are going to like, but you have to be risk-taking in order to make a unique profile.
Don't write about stuff that you don't wear/use/eat, just because they are in fashion.
5)Monetize your blog:
There are several ways to monetize your blog. Adsense, affiliate programs, direct ads.
Try to find what best work for you and start monetizing from your first steps.
The reason to do this, is not just about the money (don't have many expectations), but it's a great way to treat your blog like business and to have a more professional image.
6)Make a plan:
Blogging planner will be your best friend. Plan your posts, your pins, your social media activity.
Make a schedule and stuck on it.
When i decided to write on a daily base, i knew that it was going to be a huge step, and till now i'm somehow anxious but also proud to achieve my target.
So maybe you don't have to be that risky, but whatever your plan is, try to stuck on it and be as consistent as possible.
These are all tricks for today!
