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.
I’ve noticed lately that a lot of people seem to be struggling with feeling burnt out in their day to day life. In a society that takes a bit of twisted pride in never calling out of work it’s frankly not surprising that people are getting to this point.
While I get that being overworked is partially a financial decision for many (and therefore largely a necessity), social media is definitely a huge contributor as well. The first thing we do when waking, and the last thing we do before sleeping, is scroll through our phones to observe others. This is creating a subconscious tally board against carefully curated highlight reels of all the things we aren’t accomplishing, even though we’re striving for something that isn’t obtainable because it’s not real.
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.
Hey babes! I’ve seen a lot of people really struggling to find their voice and just write lately (myself included) so I decided to put together my favorite tips on how I deal with “writer’s block”. I actually employed almost every method I’ve shared here while writing out this post, so I can say with certainty that they work!
These tips are directed toward writing blog posts, but I think they can really apply in almost any situation that you find yourself needing to write. Obviously, I’m just biased about what I’m working on.
I’ve said it multiple times recently, but I feel like I’m in this weird transitionary phase of my life. At first I thought it was Mercury still in retrograde (does it ever stop tho) but I think it’s actually just that I’m trying to really “grow up” in a sense (what does it mean to be an adult?). That means reevaluating and making the appropriate changes necessary to make sure I’m living my “best” life, and I suppose change in general can bring about weird feelings. I’ve decided to share the tips that I’ve found to be most important while I try to make this metamorphosis into the best me:
