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.

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.

 

Hair growth before, during and after pregnancy

Our hair is our crown and we should pay more attention to it. When I say hair, I mean our natural hair. Hair extensions, wigs and all the rest are good but our primary concern should be with our natural hair that grows out of our head. I have neglected my natural hair for so long and I am still paying for all the damage I caused it. The good part of the experience was having the knowledge to care for my hair going forward and share my insight with my daughter and anyone who cares to listen.

Our hair grows at a rate f about 1cm every month. It is less for some of us and more for others. It all depends on the type of hair, genes and how we nurture our hair.

Our hair lasts for between 1 to 6 years. Then it sheds and a new hair replaces it. On a good day, we lose around 100 hairs. The older we get, the less our hair grows, which is the younger you are, the easier it is to grow your hair. It is faster to our hair between the ages of 15 and 25 because this is when out hair is at the thickest. The irony of this fact is this is the stage most young girls are developing and finding themselves. So they end up experimenting with all sorts of hairstyles, which may damage their hair in the end. The hair usually thins out between the ages of 30 and 50 years.

 

Hormones and Hair Growth

Our hormones affect our hair in various ways. During the teenage years, our hormones make the hair greasier and curlier. While in menopause, our hair becomes drier. When we are pregnant, our hair becomes really thick and hair loss decreases massively thanks to the high levels of oestrogen and progesterone. I still remember how thick and long my hair was while pregnant with the twins. My hair was so healthy and shiny, it was unbelievable. However, once I had the kiddies, my hair started shedding at an alarming rate. All the hair that would have been lost over 9 months fell out within weeks after delivery.

I went natural after childbirth and I have been growing my hair since then. My hair has really improved since I went natural. I have been nurturing it and paying more attention in ensuring it stays healthy. My efforts have paid off and my hair is thanking me for it.

How do you nurture your hair? Any hair growth tips?
