Hello everyone, and welcome back to another post. For today’s blog post I wanted to talk about the 10 things I wish I knew before I started blogging plus blog tips. I have been blogging about little over a year now and I am still up to this day learning about new things. And to be honest with you it is so confusing to me but I try and find my way around. I always tend to think about it as a world I am still trying to learn and figure out. Everyday I am always constantly reading articles and blog tips to educate myself and teach myself what I need to know.
Before blogging I honestly thought of it as you make a site and just write posts. I never knew there was so much more that goes on behind it. Like writing, promoting, marketing your brand and constantly trying to engage with other people. Who knew that you always got to constantly make sure your readers are engaged with your content and always trying to make sure your blog is generating traffic. But although I think about all of this I remember even the most top bloggers out there started just like me. Looking back at my very first posts and photography I have came a very long way and I couldn’t be more proud of myself.
My Top 10
- Setting up
- Being unique
- Always having to remember why you started
I wish I knew about the amount of time blogging involves, like I said honestly thought you just write a post and that is it. But I have learned its more then that and it all is just organising time. I have also learned that creating a great blog and having the right tools sometimes involves money. I am still investing and learning everything I need to create great content and site. And who know about the amount of time we need to market and always promote ourselves? because I didn’t lol. If had to chose my hardest struggle at the moment it would be constantly generating traffic to my blog. Also as bloggers we sometimes need breaks, I always take a break when its much needed but I always try to get back to blogging as soon as possible.
This helps your readers reading your content and not wonder where you went. Blogging sometimes can become a huge stress, but I always trying to continue to find devotion in what I do. And motivate myself to work everyday this i believe goes hand and hand with balancing. You always want to make sure you have a balanced life and time when you have self care and distress. One thing I always remember when it comes to my blog is always remembering to be and stay unique. There is hundreds of influencers and bloggers out there and the only thing that gets your readers is your uniqueness. No one wants to follow or read someone that is copying someone else or trying to follow someone else.
My last and most final thing I wish someone told me is that you’d always have to remember why you started. We get stressed out and frustrated and that is normal, and all we have to do is remember why we all started. And these are the 10 things I wish i knew, and the best blog tips I can share!
