IG & blogging tips – Part 2

Hello again beautiful people! Today I bring you part two of my ig and blogging tips! Today’s post will be devoted to blogging, as part one was for ig. If you haven’t read my ig one, just scroll back a few posts on my blog, and you’ll find it!

 

Blogging:

  1. Motivation

The same as for Instagram, you’ll need motivation to start anything. You’ll need to be driven to want to start a blog. It’s not something start on a whim, then abandon after a day because you don’t want to continue it.

 

2. Blogging Platform

You’ll need to find the most appropriate platform to use. Some examples include:

  • WordPress.org
  • WordPress.com
  • Blogger
  • Squarespace
  • Wix
  • Weebly

If you need help choosing one, this article may help you out! I’ve seen many beauty bloggers use Blogger and WordPress.com as their chosen platform.

 

3. Self-hosted (Optional)

Some bloggers choose to self host their site. This means they buy a domain for a small price, which allows them to operate independently.

E.g. Instead of being exampleone.wordpress.com, the URL can be changed to exampleone.com – without giving ‘credit’ to wordpress in the URL.

4. URL

Once you’ve chosen your blogging platform, you’ll need to find a URL – more importantly, one that isn’t already taken. This is very similar to choosing a username for instagram.

 

5. Planning

Plan what schedule and posts you want to write about. Find a day or a few days a week that you’re able to write up some posts, as well as schedule them. I post 2 days a week, one on Wednesday and one on Saturday – which works fine with my current schedule. If you feel the need to edit your schedule better, so it revolves around your hectic life at that moment, then go for it!

 

6. Post

Start posting! Take some photos to accompany your posts and stay consistent! That’s key to anything!

 

Hope you’ve enjoyed this series of tips for blogging and instagram! If you’d like more tips about anything, just let me know in the comments, or send me a suggestion here. Thanks for reading once again, and see you next week!
