Hey guys! Kind of a different post for you today. I’ve known a lot of people that have asked me questions about blogging. I figured I’d share the advice I gave them with you all.
First and foremost, make sure you really want this. It may look easy, but it’s not. You need to be passionate about what you’re writing about. You also need to be organized and make sure you have time to spare. This isn’t something you just sit down and spend ten or fifteen minutes on.
I usually have three notebooks in rotation. That’s what I’ve discovered works for me. Sometimes I carry them with me, sometimes they sit at home. I do find it weirdly helps if the notebooks are cute, so I’m always on the look out for new ones, especially on sale.
Inside the notebooks all have different things.
One is a schedule of what I’ll post when. Typically, what is posted on the blog is something that happened in my real life weeks before. Sometimes less time, sometimes more. But having ideas ahead of time helps me not to scramble around last minute.
Another one contains lists of products I’ve used on actual looks or mani Mondays or even what’s in my trash.
The last one has looks I’m working on. Just usually lists of eye and lip products I want to try together. I also use this one to jot down when I get ideas and can’t work on them in the moment.
I’m also a huge fan of colored pens and markers. Each type of post gets its in color. So I can flips between notebooks and find the same notes for a single post easily. It also helps break up between long lists.
Basically, the most important thing (by far) is that you really enjoy what your subject is. If it feels like work, you won’t last.
And that’s all y’all! Let me know if you have any questions! See you soon!
