8 Tips For Bloggers


  1. Decide When You’re Going To Post And Let Your Readers Know

    I saw someone who described this really well (If you’re that person, please let me know so I can link your post!). It’s like watching a TV series. You know that a certain show will be shown every Friday at 8pm. You look forward to it. You can’t wait for the next one. THAT is how you want your readers to feel. They want to know what days you’ll be posting, and what time they can look forward to seeing your next post.

    FYI: I post every single day at 4am BST!

    Please ignore the 1. on this post. It won’t disappear!


Mix Things Up A Little

This can be a little scary for you and your readers, but throw something else in the mix! Keep it similar, but lets say your blog is about cars, throw in a post about a motorbike. If your blog is about healthy eating, post a workout. Keep your readers entertained!

Proof Read, And Proof Read Again

This was something I wish I learned straight away. With first ever post, I was so excited to get it out there, and since it took me forever to write, I honestly didn’t feel like reading back over it. Luckily, WordPress has a button which proof reads it for you! I would be careful though since it isn’t the greatest, but I click the button, and read through my whole post with it enabled.

Don’t Over Tag!

WordPress allows you to post as many tags and categories as you like, but it comes with a downside. You’re only allowed to categorise and tag 15 things in total, or else it will not show up on the reader, which is a crucial part of getting traffic from your followers.

Also, make sure you’re tagging things that are relevant to your post. No point tagging #Xbox if your post is about baking…

Follow Button

I cannot stress this enough. The amount of times I haven’t followed someone, simply because I cannot find their follow button! You NEED to make these easy to find for viewers, other wise they won’t follow, simply because they don’t want to spend ages looking for it.

Set Yourself Goals

I do this every day. I aim to get a certain amount of views daily, and a certain amount of views in a week. I also aim to get 3+ followers a week.

DON’T make your goals stupidly high that you won’t be able to reach. Make them achievable, but only if you put in some hard work.

Ask Your Readers What THEY Want

For example, you’re all likely aware by now that I post beauty related posts. Lets say I’ve posted a haul. Ask your readers if they want a review on a certain product! Or say you’ve shown off your new DIY bird house. Ask if they want to see how you built it!

End Your Posts In A Question

You may have noticed that I always do this. I love this since it allows me to engage with my readers slightly more that without it. It gives off a good starting point for a conversation.


So there we have it! I’m going to try to post more of my blogging tips and tricks that I have learnt regularly, since I LOVE reading others! If you’ve written a post like this, leave your links down below so I can check them out!

    This was very helpful! My favorite blogging tip is definitely keeping a consistent posting and writing schedule. For example, I write several posts over the weekend, but publish them once a day over the week.

    Question – why 4am? I don’t really know a good time so just post them whenever! Xxxx

    • 2nd July 2017 / 7:57 am

      I came across it by mistake 😂 I just found its a good time for my non UK bloggers, and then I keep an eye on traffic, and re-post it if I have😂

    • 2nd July 2017 / 4:28 pm

      Ill do a scroll up and down, and have a look in the usual places, but I’m definitely not spending more than 2 minutes looking for one! xx

    Great tips! Girl I totally feel ya with the proof reading. I get so excited to post I’m just like “ah I’m just gonna do it and hope there aren’t errors.”😅 but seriously proofreading is so important to get respect from readers. Great post!

    • 2nd July 2017 / 4:50 pm

      Thank you so much! I’m the same 😂or I think i’ve gone through it, post it, and then someone tells me theres a mistake! oops! x

    Quick question! Is it better to start off with a self hosted blog or a .wordpress blog? I’ve been trying to see the pros and cons in both.

    • 3rd July 2017 / 6:44 am

      I honestly am trying to weigh this one up myself still. My brains all over the play with things like self hosted and SEO! I’ll try and do some research, and then ill post something about it! xx

      • 3rd July 2017 / 6:45 am

        Sure! I’m thinking about taking the plunge..but a whole bunch of people tell I need certain number of views otherwise it’s not work it is making me doubt myself…

        • 3rd July 2017 / 6:47 am

          Ohh I haven’t heard that one before… Let me know if you do decide to swap over! I’d love to know how you found it!
