Um, excuse me, apparently February 16th was my official two year blogging anniversary! A lot of people don’t know, but The Gold Sister originally started over on blogger in 2015. I kept it kind of hush-hush though, because the idea of sharing with the world made me so ridiculously nervous. I eventually realized I loved my blog name (I’m obsessed y’all), and the only person I was holding back was me by not diving in. So I bought my domain and started fresh on wordpress. You can see my very first post here.
I’ve definitely learned a whole lot on my journey thus far, and while I haven’t properly implemented everything I know, I’m totally in love with the process. In honor of even making it this far, I decided to share some of what I’ve learned with y’all. View Post
Lately, I’ve found myself talking to a lot of my peers about starting their own blogs. I’m not sure if it’s because blogging seems like a natural continuation of the creative fields they’re already in, or because I keep talking up how fun creating your own content is, but the convos come up on a weekly basis. So, this one’s for you guys.
I put together my top tips of things you should be focusing on if you’re considering starting a blog, or if you’re a newbie blogger trying to improve. These are things I wish I’d done, and some things I’m still working on! If you’re considering diving into the blogging world or just getting started, this might be helpful to you.
While I’d definitely say it’s easier to have someone else help you take blog photos (blog boyfriends, you know who you are), sometimes that just isn’t an option. I’ve started dabbling in taking my photos myself recently (and people can’t even tell!), because I like being able to drop everything and get to business on my own timeline.
Seriously, sometimes you’ve got an idea you’re just bursting to photograph or a sponsored post you’ve gotta get up ASAP, and no help in sight. Don’t worry, I’ve gotchu! I decided to put together my top tips to help you start shooting solo, so you guys can get out there and start making magic all by your-friggin-self.
