Sorry I’ve been a little MIA lately – I’ve had a few personal issues (which I blogged about here) but I feel ready to get back to blogging now. I have so many ideas for content which is great to take my mind off things and get back into the swing of everything! I thought I’d come back with a #TipsTuesday post from my series and today I’m talking about the ‘blogger checklist’ – this isn’t something to live by but just things I wish I knew when I’d started out blogging to make life easier in the long run, ya know?! Hope you find this helpful!…
1.) Business cards – great for networking and self promotion
2.) A clean blog design – make sure it’s easy to navigate and nice to look at
3.) A diary – to keep on top of blog posts, events and meetings!
4.) Good social engagement – make sure you post often on your social channels and engage with your followers.
5.) A weekly desk planner – to help plan your schedule ahead and keep on top of posts
6.) A voice – know when it’s okay to say no, and when to accept opportunities or products
7.) A decent camera – you don’t need tonne of equipment for a blog but just one decent camera that you can shoot everything from outfit pictures to product close ups on.
8.) A schedule – create a schedule that you can stick to and find inspiring (not too grueling!)
9.) Organisation – to stay on top of planning, emails and scheduling content
10.) Passion – the most important factor, it’s such a shame to see people starting blogs for ‘free stuff’ all the time, you need to have a genuine passion for what you’re blogging about and that will shine through to your readers and pave a way for a successful blog.
What are your checklist tips?
