This Post I talk about how I want to get my life together and one way to do that is to separate into categories and blogging is one of my categories.
The reason I want to be good at blogging is because I enjoy writing in general. Most blogging tips say that in order to have a good blog, you have to have one topic. If you do it that way, a person who is interested in make-up finds your blog because of your make-up post then keeps clicking and following because you have more make-up posts and now, they become a follower. You lose them because if you only have one make-up post and the rest are about hiking, why would they care?
I figured by making this blog with Liz I would have the freedom to write what I want to write about without the pressure of having to stick to something besides what I know best, my life. This way, I can see trends of what I write about because honestly, I don’t know what type of blog I want to have next year.
What do they have in common though? A lot of content and good writing and in blogs like Lauren Conrad’s, great photos and how-tos.
What can I control? I suppose photos and content. Ironically, I took none of the photos in the post yet I love photography. I already see a way to improve! And I role models now too.
Pretty soon I’ll have my own high end make-up brand like Lauren right?
Blogging is fun though because I do creep on a lot of people’s blogs and my new goal is for every blog I read a whole post from, I leave a comment because blogging is also about networking and being able to talk to people because it is a public space.
With my busy schedule, I think the way to meet my goals is just to produce content so I’m ahead, then when I find time, write more. I need to write even if it’s not my day to post because who knows what my schedule will be like the next day. At the same time, I need to breathe and proof read and add fun photos because this isn’t a journal, it’s a blog. Even when I briefly interned at a blog site, we had to put photos but the word count wasn’t a requirement just photos and quality content, not quantity.
