Tips For Starting Your Own Blog

Hi guys! Today I'm sharing with you a handful of tips on how to create your own blog. I've gotten a lot of questions of the years and today Gena from GlamMeUp and I decided to collaborate and share with you our best ten tips! My tips cover things like motivation and coming up with good content while Gena is talking about how to use blogger and some of the more technical parts of blogging! Be sure to watch both videos for all ten tips!!

1. Create & Maintain A Schedule. When you are coming up with great posts, be sure to also create a schedule you can stick to. Your readers will rely on your posts. Maybe schedule to post every single day or just MWF.

2. Blog Seasonally. Right now we're in the middle of March and it's the perfect time to talk about St. Patricks day, spring break, and spring cleaning ideas! Try to create content that is seasonally and current!

3. Images Profession ~ Content Short & Sweet. Keep things simple. Great pictures and a few paragraphs are more then enough. We are all way to busy to read 'books' on your blog.

4. Create Weekly Posts. Consider posting "Friday Favorites' every single Friday. Or maybe "Tea Time Tuesday" every single Tuesday. This will help you keep on track and give your readers something to look forward to.

5. Be Genuine. When you're commenting on other peoples' blogs, be sure to actually mean the words you say. Try to create friendships!
