Hello again, guys! This week I have a fun surprise!
For a long time, I’ve been planning a collab with Olivia from Purely Olivia, and we finally finished it! This post will share 5 ways you can enjoy blogging. If you want to read the other five, go check out Olivia’s post!
Read on for 5 ways you can enjoy blogging!
1: Choose a blog design that makes you happy
This one is super important. If you write good posts and have fun, but your design is bland and unappealing to you, you won’t want to blog as much, which I know from experience. So try creating a fun and unique blog design! If, after endless toil and trouble, you can’t put together a good design, try finding someone who can do it for you!
One place I recommend is Design Pique Studios, created by Mukta. All of her designs are free, and you’re included in every step of the designing process! Check out the link for more information!
2: Don’t worry about stats
I know I say this a lot, but worrying about stats can ruin blogging. If you’ve read my posts where I rant about my previous blog, you’ll know I deleted my content repeatedly because nobody was interested, and I eventually deleted my blog. So, my tip is to not worry about stats, because they really don’t matter. Just have fun with your blog, and eventually, more people will begin to read it!
3: Try hosting a contest
Now, I’m not saying to do what I did, and constantly reschedule your contest because people don’t join. Please don’t do that. Be firm when you plan a contest. Set a date, and keep that date. If nobody is joining, try inviting people! It’s not as awkward as it may seem.
4: Interact with your readers
This is one of the most fun parts of blogging! Doesn’t it just feel amazing when someone comments on your post? If it does, then don’t leave that comment all alone! Reply to their comment, and maybe even start a conversation! Make blogging buddies! Have fun!
5: Save time for everyday life, too
As much fun as blogging can be, make sure you enjoy your everyday life as well. Don’t neglect your loved ones. Don’t center your whole day around blogging, either. Be open to life things, like that craft show your mom wanted to take you to. Once you’ve spent time doing things you’ll remember, then you can go ahead and work on next week’s post, or your new blog look.
Well, there’s my half of the collab! Go check out Olivia’s post for the other half!
What are some ways you enjoy blogging?
