Blogging tip – How often should you blog?

A quick Google search with the keywords – How regularly should you blog, would bring up all sorts of articles with different types of advice. Some advocate for blogging once a day, others once a week and some even recommend multiple times a day if you can. How regularly you should blog depends on your blog niche. When I say blog niche, I don’t mean fashion, beauty, travel and rest. I mean You! Yes you are your blog niche believe it or not, so you should set the pace of how often you should post new content.

How often should you blog?

When I started blogging in 2012, I was posting regularly. I wanted to grow my blog quickly and I was full of ideas, so I went with it. All my hard work and dedication worked out in the end as my blog grew and grew. The blog is still growing and evolving. Growth never stops and my technique for growing steady hasn’t really changed all these years. I still blog regularly as many of my regular readers will know. It works for me as I write really quickly and I always have ideas for blog posts.

So back to the question – How regularly should you blog? It depends on YOU! If you have loads of ideas and time to get them all typed and ready to go, then you may be able to post on a daily basis. However, you should be careful not to overwork yourself and burn out. That will defeat the purpose. You should also be careful not to rush it and then run out of ideas. I always advise new bloggers to start slowly if possible and get into the habit of writing regularly. That way they train their brain to think of blog post ideas quickly and type them out even more quickly. My posts are usually around 500 words on average, and that works for most of my posts.

As a blogger, being able to secure a blog collaboration, whether that’s to receive a product or it’s paid, is a great achievement. If you’ve not managed to secure one yet, then there’s probably a few things that you’re missing. So here are some tips to help secure a blog collaboration.

Post Consistently

Posting regularly is important because it shows those individuals or companies that are looking for bloggers that you’re posting consistently. If it looks as though you have no regular posting times or content going up in general, then they’re unlikely to want to work with you because there might not be enough promotion for them to utilize and they might also consider that you won’t post up immediately or on the deadline they have. So try to post consistently, even if it’s once a week at the same time. At least your readers will be familiar with your timings.

 

Create A Media Kit

A media kit is a great way of getting your blog out there in a professional manner, and when you can present a media kit, it can show them you mean business. A media kit is made up of an introduction to your blog, your social statistics, and the rates you’d charge for the business you offer to brands and clients in general. Having all this in one easy to read document is essential. So take a look at some examples that can easily be found online and start thinking about how you’d like to lay out your own so that you can start sending it out.

Improve Your SEO

SEO is hugely important to websites because the more friendly it can be to search engine optimization, the better your chances are at getting your blog seen by those that are important. There are a few things that you can do to improve it yourself, like fixing broken links and writing more long-form content. Working with a professional though might be handy, and there are companies out there like https://ignitedigital.com/mississauga-seo-search-engine-optimization/ who have great experience in providing the best SEO assistance for your website. It might be an investment that’s worth doing for your blog in order to get those collaborations you need.

 

Pitch To Brands Directly

Pitching to brands directly might seem a little nerve-racking, but it shows you’re passionate about working with the brand, and if you pitch it well, they’ll likely to agree on your terms. Always look to see what you can offer as a blogger and make sure you send your media kit with the pitch too. Make it personal to them and don’t be too aggressive or demanding in what you want because that might have the opposite effect to what you want.

Securing a blog collaboration can be such a great feeling when you achieve it. So create a media kit that can show off your work and pitch to brands directly. Improve the SEO of your website and post consistently to show you’re working hard.

 

Getting Serious About Your Blog As A Business

*Collaborative post.

More and more people are thinking about turning their blogging passion into a full-time business, and there are certainly many wonderful reasons to do so. The thrall of money is of course one of the top ones, but it is not the only reason. It is also a chance to exercise a particular joy that you have, and to share your own unique opinion and stance on things with the wider world. Nonetheless, turning your blog into a fully-fledged business has its challenges which you will need to deal with and overcome: what are they?

How Much Of A Venture?

The first thing you will need to decide upon is just how much of a business venture you want your blog to be. This is entirely up to you, and it is important to remember that the sky’s the limit. Of course, most commonly it is simply a matter of monetizing it, but ultimately keeping it as a kind of stay-at-home business. But if you want to set your sights higher, there is nothing technically stopping you looking through www.proplist.com for some commercial property and turning this into a fully-fledged operation. Whatever you feel is appropriate for your blog.

 

Writing Great Content

No matter how big you do desire to take it, there is one thing that is always going to remain the case, and that is that you need to write consistently great content. The better your content, the more of a chance you have of real success with your business, so this really is an important thing to bear in mind. This is true if it is just you writing at home, or if you have started up a whole team of writers to blog on different subjects under one company name. The content is always king.

Selling Products

One of the simpler ways to monetize a blog is to sell products alongside it. This is easy enough to do: the first challenge is to decide on what products are going to be saleable as a part of your blog’s brand, and which your customers are likely to actually click through to and buy. Sometimes, there is a match-up that just lends itself beautifully, such as a freelance writer’s blog selling the writer’s own books. But sometimes you will have to be a little more creative if you are to find the match. However, it is always possible.

 

Advertising

Another way to make money from your blog, and a method which could be enough to legitimize it as a business of its own accord, is to sell advertising space on your website. If you get enough visitors, then you will find that this is an incredibly effective money-maker. Of course, a lot of people prefer the idea of selling their own products through their blog, but if you want to go down this route then there is nothing wrong with that either. If you need help with this, take a look at www.lifewire.com

If you can focus on these things, you should be making money from your blog in no time.
