Blogging is a fantastic job, every day is different, and you can experience so many incredible things and try out the best products. However, blogging is also a full-time job and requires a lot of fo work and dedication to make it successful. But are there ways to make the experience a little easier to handle? Read on…
Check Out The Competition
If you feel like you’re running out of ideas or you’ve hit a wall, take a look at similar blogs and see what kind of things they are writing about. You might just get some great inspiration to use in your content.
Use Editing Apps
If you don’t have access to image editing software such as Photoshop or Lightroom, you can utilize some great free apps to edit your photos within minutes. Snapseed is an excellent example of an image editing app which is free and allows you to manipulate color and enhance images for posting. Instagram has some great editing options within the app, so before you post a picture, you can edit the bright, contrast and saturation to make your image stand out from the crowd.
Schedule Social Posts
One of the most long-winded parts of blogging can be promoting your post once it has been published. Visiting each social media and sharing the post can take a lot of time and can be pretty annoying. Luckily, scheduling apps such as HootSuite and Buffer can allow you to schedule multiple posts across your social media accounts and let you set a date and time, so you don’t have to try and remember. For example, if you know you have a blog post which is festive from last year, you could schedule it to re-share across your social media close to the holiday season.
Manage Your Post
As a Review Blog, you will get sent a lot of different products to try out and write reviews on. From the latest Mac Lipsticks to Beer Can Chicken; there will be a vast host of the goods sent to you through the post. That’s why it’s important to manage your mail. The last thing you want is a mountain of paper and products landing on your doorstep each day. You can manage your PO Box online through a company to save you having to rifle through tonnes of post each week.
Managing your post this way will make your life much easier as you can view post online through a virtual mailbox.
Track Your Finances
As you earn money from blogging, you will need to start thinking about your income and accounts. You can hire someone to keep track of your income for you, or simply keep track of it all in a spreadsheet along with your hosting costs, so you know where you are up to each month.
The most important part of blogging is having fun. Write about what you love, things you enjoy and take lots of photos. A blog is a passage through which you can share your personality, so let it shine through!
