8 blogging tips for the New Year!


Hiya! Hope you all had a great time last night! I'm feeling a bit hangover but still manage to bring 10 tips together! It wasn't easy as my brain was working slower than normal. You might think OMG what does she know about blogging? Well you are probably right I'm still trying to work it out. Blogging is a learning process I'm still learning but so far in my 10 months of blogging this is what I've learned:
1.-Tip number 1 is one of my favourites quotes from Bob Dylan: All I can do is be me, whoever that is. Whatever you do just be yourself.
2.-Money can't buy style.Don't feel bad if you don't have a lot of money to buy expensive clothes. Use old clothes, vintage, thrift shops, High street, DIY. For me real style is about to be creative with what you have and experiment with it whether is vintage, high street, your grandma's closet. I don't care! Just be creative with it.
3.-Be social media active.
Open a facebook page and twitter account and share your content, you need to let people know that you have a new post. 
4.-Don't compere yourself with other blogers learn from them instead. We all have something different to offer! So find it and show it to the world :) 
5.-Show what you are good at. If you have great writing skills or cooking, photography, make up. Show it in your blog and often. As you can see in my blog I don't write a lot because writing is not my strongest point I do a lot of spelling mistakes and I'm trying to get better but in the meantime I show my blog my other skills :)
6.-Produce more original content. Look around other blogs and see what they are missing maybe there is something missing out there that you can offer.
7.-Try to post as often as you can. If blogging is only a hobby well then ignore this and post whenever you like but if you want to get something out of it whether is working in fashion, having your own business, publish yourself as designer, photographer, writer. Do it often! This not only apply with blogging this apply in everything To be good at something you have to spend time. People that is the best at what they do is not because they spend a few hours a week and then suddenly they were the best! There is actually a lot of hard work behind we might don't see it but is there. If you want to be the best at something spend hours and hours doing it.
8.-Be patient and Enjoy it. This is the most important and the most difficult for me, whatever you want from your blog is not going to happen overnight it takes a bit of time so relax and enjoy it and I'm sure that if you have worked hard you will see results sooner than later.
I think this is the longest post ever.I hope was helpful.I wrote them for you but also for myself because I'm sure I'll be the first one in forget all about the tips above :/ 
BTW don't forget to share on twitter or facebook if you like my tips:)

    6. Happy New Year. Thanks so much for this post, I've found it really inspiring.

      I am also a fairly new blogger, i've had www.mediamarmalade.com since the end of October - so 2 months or so. it's going really well and I am totally addicted to blogging already.

      I wanted to be a fashion journalist, but I am now doing well in the advertising industry, I love my blog as it's an outlet for me to write and discuss fashion. Whilst its a hobby, I love love love it when I get new followers and readers.

      Your tips are really good to hear, I sometimes forget to be patient, and worry my images aren;t as good as others. But overall I am really happy with how it's coming along :)

      I found your blog a couple of days ago and am now following :) Great blog name too ;) great minds think alike xx

    7. Me ha encnatado, Victoria... Muchas gracias por los consejos. Soy bastante nueva en el mundillo blogger y me vienen genial tus propuestas. He de confesar que yo dejo escrito mi dirección del blog en mis comentarios y suelo proponer seguirnos la una a la otra... Pero intento dejar algún comentario bonito sobre el blog o el post. Me da rabia cuando se nota que ni siquiera han mirado un poquito lo que haces... Espero con el tiempo poder dejar de proponer seguirnos y conseguir seguidoras por lo que hago, como tú lo haces.

    9. Hahaha! I love your thoughts about those boring comments. I bet someone will post on here saying 'nice' or something without even reading it O.o I love what you have to say though. For me blogging is multiple creative expressions mixed into one. The neat DIYs, photography, outfits, writing, art, etc. That's what you gotta love about it!

      Muchas gracias por estos consejitos!! Yo llevo casi dos años con mi blog y estoy feliz con él!! Me encantaría escribir mucho más a menudo, pero no se porqué, no lo consigo nunca!!
      Yo también odio el si me sigues, te sigo. No tendría que ser un obligación, si no un placer! No lo he dicho nunca, ni me gusta que me lo digan. Para mi, el mejor consejo es el primero!! Siempre hay que ser uno mismo!
      Un besazo & Feliz Año!!

    29. I can't remember if I have said happy new year to you, but happy new year anyway. I have probably told people a million times haha. These are fab blogging tips, I am quite good on social media and seo, but get stuck on content sometimes. I have spells of having loads to say and them nothing. Your blog is fab, keep up the good work for 2012 xx
