Get your blog ready for the new year

Season Greetings guys! How is everyone getting ready for the holidays? We are excited here. Definitely caught the Christmas bug in our house. It has been very busy here but I am finally slowing down and getting into the jolly mood. I am done with uni work for the year and I won’t be posting on Fashion and Style Police as often as I usually do for the rest of this year. I want to take some proper time off and just do nothing. The holidays is a great time to relax and bond with the family. It is also a great time to get your blog ready for the new year.

Get your blog ready for the new year

How do you get your blog ready for 2020? Here are 3 ways you could do this before this year ends –

 

Take a good look at your blog

Before you can successfully improve something, you have to know what needs improving. This rule applies to everything including blogs. To improve your blog, you need to take a good honest look at it and look for ways you could improve it. It could be the blog name, theme, blog layout/design, or domain. There is always room for improvement, so take a good look at your blog and look for ways to improve it for the new year.

 

Improve your photography game

Blogs are visual, which means your pictures have to look pretty. No one would read a great post if the pictures in the blog post are poor quality. Pictures have the power to attract more eyeballs to your blog posts so work on improving your photography skills this holiday. You could take a photography course, play around with picture editing tools like Lightroom, Photoshop and the likes, so you know how to make the most of the pictures you do take.

Research great blog topics

In other to have great content for 2020, you should start researching blog topics now that would work great for your niche. That way you have interesting blog post ideas lined up ready to go for the new year.

 

The holiday period is usually quiet on the big wide web, as many people are offline having a life. Which makes it the best time to work on your blog and get it ready for the new year. If you want to improve your blog and start making money off it in 2020, get in touch to find out more about my blog coaching service.

I may be back on here before Christmas but just incase I am not, here’s, me wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy new year in advance.

Earn money from your blog & be your own boss

I have been blogging for almost 7 years now and it has been a learning journey for me. My inbox is usually filled up with emails from new bloggers asking blogging related questions. Which is why I have decided to go down the blog coach route. That way I can help more bloggers grow their blogs and they can start to earn a good income from their work. There is nothing like being your own boss. It is an amazing feeling. Especially when you love what you do, and you are good at it.

Blogging is the best career path for me. It is one of the best things I ever did, and I am forever grateful to the internet for giving me the power to work from anywhere and make money doing what I love.

Earn money from your blog & be your own boss

The blog coach service I offer is a side gig alongside my blog (which is my main job). Many wonder how bloggers are able to make enough money to blog full time with no other “out of the house” jobs. Well, I can open your eyes to how this can be done because I do it and I have done so for over 5 years now.

After giving birth to my twins, I didn’t go back to my customer service job. It was a soul-destroying job and I am glad I had a good enough blog to start making some money from. If not, I would have gone back to that job or something similar and I won’t feel as happy and as fulfilled as I feel now. That empty feeling, I used to get when going to work every day is no longer there. I feel in control and ready to take on the world every time I start working and I love it.

I enjoy offering my blog coaching service. There is a lot to take in when it comes to blogging and social media, and I feel this kind of service is what every new blogger needs. I would have jumped at the chance of an experienced blogger coaching me in my early days of blogging. That would have made my journey a lot easier. I won’t have made the many mistakes I made and my climb to the spot where I am at would have been quicker and stress-free.

Social Media Tips – Twitter is meant for chit-chat

Blogging and social media go hand in hand. I would be lost with the 2, which is why you would easily catch me on them. When it comes to blogging, content is king and marketing is queen. There is no content without marketing. What is the point of writing post after post if no one is going to read it. Social media is a massive platform when it comes to marketing your blog. My number blog referral is Google, which is exactly the way I want to. I pay a lot of attention to my SEO, and I am thankful I am starting to see the results of all my hard work over the years. The last for referrals is Twitter.

Google is the number 1 referral for Fashion and Style Police

While Google is my number referral list, Twitter is my last! I found this odd at first because I didn’t understand how it would be my last since I shared every new blog post on there. I also share many tweets with post links with the right hashtags and they get liked/retweeted. So with all the hard work and Twitter being the last on the referral list, it left me wondering why. I have been on Twitter since 2009 and I still maintain my original account, although my name has been tweaked a few times on there.

 

Social Media Tips – Twitter is meant for chit-chat

I have come to realise that Twitter as the name kind of implies, is meant for chitchat. It is not really the platform to get lots of people to visit your blog. It is more for building relationships and expressing yourself. I will be doing more of that going forward. There will still be many tweets with links to blog posts and all, but I will be focusing more on just chatting with others and expressing my views and opinions.

 

Blog Coaching Service

Twitter is still one of my favourite platforms. I get many blog collaborations on there and I also pitch to many potential clients, so I won’t be reducing my time on there regardless. I will just be using it slightly differently now that I fully understand how it works as a social media platform. At the moment, I have a blog coaching service available, where I will be teaching how to make the most of your blog and start to earn an income from it. Do get in touch via email for more details on that.
