We've loved providing fun blog content for you guys over the years, so we're spilling all our blog secrets for you! Here's a few tips and tricks we've learned that make for a super successful blog!
1. Blog Theme!
Pick an overall blog theme that you want to focus on. Whether you love cooking, fashion, travel, etc. pick something that fits your lifestyle and run with it!
2. Be consistent!
Make sure you're posting regularly! The more content you have for your readers, the more likely they are to find topics and posts they just *have* to read!
3. Keep it short and sweet!
It's actually best to keep your blog posts 500 characters or less! Give them posts that are easy and quick to read all the way through. You don't want them to be overwhelmed with too much text and back out before the end of your post!
4. Design a cute website!
The best website for beginners is Word Press! Pick a layout and website theme you love that looks cute and is easy to navigate so your readers don't get lost!
5. Use quality photos!
Everyone loves a good visual! Not only do photos help capsulate what you're trying to describe in your posts, but it also keeps things creative and interesting!
6. Know your audience!
In order to have a successful blog, it's super important to know what your readers are in to so they keep coming back for more! Do they like tons of personality and entertainment or are they looking for a more polished and sophisticated blog where they can be educated? Always ask for feedback!
7. Use catchy titles!
8. Market yourself!
9. Have fun and be you!
