Bloggers evolve. With our recent site re-design and a pair of right equipment, we have treaded along the path of professional blogging.
Among other blogging tips like consistency, hi-res images and conversational content, it is also essential to be a pied-piper and charm your readers. We have learnt these hacks along the way since we first started blogging in 2013 and so we thought we will save you some time.
First impression is last lasting impression. These are made of eye-candies. It begins with the font, the layout, the style, your looks and the colors on the blog. Blog quotient is more important than you think. This is the first hook for your readers.
We use WordPress and have stayed updated with the latest themes and plugins. We are a fan of WordPress over Blogger since it gives us flexibility to add widgets easily.
Treat your blog as a bag full of goodies you open up everyday for your readers. If you do not bring unique visual or mind treats for them, they will eventually lose interest in you.
We suggest you keep your headlines precise. It is so much more effective than chasing SEO friendly headings. Then support these headings with creative images. Imagine packaging your content in colourful toffee wrappers or stylish minimalist b&w. It’s called attracting attention.
We suggest doing short Youtube tutorials for photography. It is really helpful.
Everyone knows this. If you are a star on social media, you are a star on the blogsphere, and the other way round. Knitting a follower base might look overwhelming but with simple hacks, you will get there sooner.
We use apps for pre-made hash tags. Especially on Instagram.
On Twitter, we build relationships. Everyday, we talk to someone new and become virtual friends forever.
It is not necessary to be on all platforms at all times at once; take baby steps into the world of interactions.
Like these posts, we embed our social check-ins and updates into our posts. This helps redirect our readers to social profiles.
Choosing a name for your blog and creating a unique identity with a logo should be done right from the start. Having consistent communication across social media accounts is a gateway to blogging success.
Font based logos are most easy to use. Though, we have chosen a little design to accompany while using an autograph style font.
Always remember you belong to a community and proactively contribute and benefit from the members. These are lifestyle blogs we enjoy reading
