How to build your own identity as a content creator

*Affiliate link.

Content creating is fun for me. I enjoy publishing blogposts on Fashion and Style Police and videos on my YouTube Channel. I also enjoy regularly updating my social media pages. It is not a chore for me. It doesn’t feel like a job sometimes. I enjoyed creating content on the web long before I took it up as a career. When it comes to content creating, to stand out from the saturated market, you have to build your own identity. What does that even mean? It means you being unique; bringing something new to the table.

Here are 4 ways you can go about building your own identity as a content creator.

Just start

Many people never really start because they are afraid of failing or people laughing at them. I rather try and fail, than to not try at all because I will keep wondering what would have happened if I had just started. As for people laughing, let them laugh. If you keep at it and keep improving as you go along, they won’t be laughing for long. You may be laughing all the way to the bank instead.

 

Be yourself

To succeed as a content creator, you have to be yourself, everyone else is taken. You need to write about articles that resonate with you and those you have good knowledge about. So don’t blog about beauty and fashion, if you have no clue on how to properly apply makeup or put an outfit together. Don’t vlog about gaming, just because it is trendy on YouTube, if you have no real interest in it. It may take sometime but then the cracks will start to show and then you will have no creative content to publish.

Being yourself will help you thrive and you will find your own people that would love to read or watch whatever you create.

 

Don’t force creativity

Creativity is smashing together two ideas that have never been connected. It is not talent. It is a way of operating. Creativity is intelligence having fun. I got these definitions from a book I am currently reading – FLEX: The Modern Woman’s Handbook by Annie Auerbach and it explains the concept of creativity perfectly. Being creative should come naturally. It is not something you should have to force. If you have to force yourself to come up with blog posts and video content, then you are probably in the wrong job/hobby. 

 

Follow your passions

You should follow your passions all the time. It is easy to tell when someone enjoys what they do. It literally shows on their faces, in the quality of content they produce and in their writing tone. If you want to succeed as a content creator, follow your passions and create content in line with your passions. That way everything you do will flow naturally.

L.O.L Surprise Dolls Collection

*Affiliate link.

Are your kids into L.O.L Surprise Dolls? My daughter is obsessed with them. She fell in love with the brand some time ago and we have been collecting the dolls ever since. We had to get her the L.O.L Surprise Pop Up Store Playset to house them all because I was tired of seeing the dolls and the accessories everywhere in the house.

I can see why herself and many other kids love the dolls. They are very girly and cute, and I think kids like the whole idea of every doll being a surprise. I am not too sure parents like that bit though. It is quite a cool concept, the only issue is, you may end up with multiple of the same dolls if you are very into collecting them. Thankfully that has not happened to us yet.

My daughter also loves the accessories that come with the L.O.L Dolls. She loves dressing up and switching the accessories from one doll to the another.

We have been bitten by the Youtube bug and we have been busy uploading videos on our channel. We have 11 videos on the channel now, and many more waiting to go on. So instead of just blogging about our L.O.L Surprise Dolls Collection, we decided to vlog about them. Seeing is believing, and sometimes it is a lot easier and better to show you, which is why YouTube is so handy. We went for the vlog option on this one because that is exactly what my duchess wanted.

You can watch our video below, and also subscribe to our channel to catch up on every video.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely week ahead.

 

 

 

Why I Deleted My Second Blog

When it comes to blogging, I strongly believe for you to be successful as a blogger, you need to write a blog you would like to read. Which is why I write on Fashion and Style Police the way I do. We have different types of niches we love reading. I love reading a variety of topics and I enjoy reading them on the same blog. From fashion and beauty, to travel and lifestyle topics. For me to be a regular reader of a blog, I need to like the blog layout and design, the writing tone, the blogger behind the blog and the topics covered.

I hardly read purely fashion or beauty blogs these days. I tend to read more lifestyle blogs because they cover a variety of topics, so I am sure I would find posts I am interested in reading while scrolling through. Plus the advancement of social media means I get to see outfit and beauty posts steady on my feed (thank you Instagram), so reading a personal style blog or a makeup blog would be too much of a hassle, except the blog covered other topics I enjoy reading like parenting and blogging tips.

Write a blog you would like to read

The trick to blogging is to make sure your content reflects you. So write whatever you feel like writing and own it!  Don’t let it be all about reviews, PR samples, affiliate links and paid posts. Let your content be more of what you feel like writing about and just do you! Many people would say having a varied blog like I do wouldn’t work. They would say I need to stick to 1 or 2 related niches, and set up another blog for the other niches I am interested in writing about. I did that in the early days. I had another blog set up purely for reviews and it was so boring. It was not a blog I would want to read, which is why I deleted it after 9 months. That experience has taught me to ignore the noise and everyone’s opinion of how I should blog and just focus on publishing the right content that I would like to read.

 

Any regrets?

I have no regrets. Deleting the review blog was the right decision and I would delete it again if I had the chance. I played around with a niche blog and it didn’t work. I realised quickly that this was no right for me, and I decided to implement reviews into Fashion and Style Police, and the rest is history. The review blog was set up and deleted about 4 years ago, so it is not a recent development. It is just a way of me explaining why niche blogging is not my thing. I think it is because we are forever evolving as humans. Life happens and sometimes we just don’t like what we used to like anymore. It may change for me in a few years, who knows. But right now, I enjoy blogging this way and I am content with having just 1 blog. No niche blogging here.
