TIPS ON HOW TO START A BLOG IN 2018.

Hello Loves, welcome back to my little corner of the internet, I hope you are well and are blessed by the time this post reaches you.

I know you might be wondering why I have decided to write on this topic today as opposed to the beginning of the year, cause that’s when it’s most relevant – as people are influenced by the New Year New Me Spirit, in all honesty, I am not a believer in new year resolutions but I am most in favour of personal development plans which are healthy and sustainable – the best part is there’s no pressure of time limits and imaginary deadlines , you have enough room to grow.

In the spirit of developing yourself, thoughts of starting a blog might have crossed your mind and as your internet friend, I am here to help.

The world of blogging is forever growing and changing, for this reason, there is a plethora of information and advice out there, don’t get me wrong that’s an amazing thing but not being able to utilize this wonderful information to your advantage can be frustrating, to say the least.

I will share 5 simple tips on how to start a blog in a Creative field :

1.START.

Wait Wait Wait don’t close your browser tab, I am sure you have heard this before but it is the most genuine and beneficial piece of advice I can give you. You need a platform that allows you to share your passion, sites like WordPress, Blogger, and BlogLovin (other sites are available) can help you achieve that, they offer plans that range from FREE to Premium.

2. KNOW YOUR NICHE.

People consume content differently, Remember, you don’t have to market to everyone, but there are definitely people out there who will resonate with and get value out of your content.

So take time to identify your target audience, Ask yourself what you want and what works best for you. Not everyone else, but you, from there you can narrow down and aim your content at people who have the same interests as you. Once you engage your audience, ask questions about the content they would like to see, LISTENING IS KEY. Tools like google analytics help you source where your audience is coming from and this gives you a better understanding of your niche.

3.SOCIAL MEDIA IS YOUR BEST FRIEND.

Quite frankly is use social media for everything in terms of inspiration and networking.With an abundance of social media sites its easy to get lost in the mix , I suggest you find a platform that is convenient for and your content, I personally love to use Youtube and Instagram but Don’t neglect social media elsewhere like Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Linkedin etc. Make sure you hook these up to your blog’s feed and update your followers and fans with your latest post.Test everything first and make sure you’re happy with the result of the chosen platform.

4. IMAGES IMAGES AND MORE IMAGES.

People love images. Crisp Clean and Clear Images, some of the most popular arts and creative blogs in the world include a lot of imagery. This is partly because people love to quickly scan through web pages and they enjoy seeing photographs and pictures that help to break up text and add visual interest. When writing a creative blog, images are essential- these days all you need is decent lighting and a smartphone, so provide as many as possible and give your audience lots of things to enjoy.

If you don’t have the best photography skills or graphic design experience sites like adobe and canva offer a decent selection of stock images and pre made designs for your convenience.

5.CONSISTENCY IS KEY.

Now that you have dotted your I’s and crosses your T’s, KEEP IT REGULAR.A blog is almost like an online journal and suggests a “regular” focus. Try and keep your blog updated with at least two articles a week. Ideally, you need to be blogging every single day, especially if SEO is one of your key priorities – if you are interested in SEO let know and I can write a more detailed post. Otherwise, just try and keep things going, Don’t let your audience forget you- they are the lifeline of your blog, we already have a short attention span as millennials, keep your audience engaged and build a personal relationship with them.

There are many more tips and tricks to learn out there, and that’s why I want to hear from you now, please feel free to share your tips on starting a blog in the comments below

Hello loves,I hope you are all well and blessed as you prepare for the week ahead wherever this post finds you ❤.

I got inspired to start a new segment on my blog called SKINCARE SUNDAY. This is definitely not a new concept a lot of people in the beauty community engage in it,nonetheless ,I thought it would be fun and helpful to share my current skincare favourites with you ,in as much as I am obsessed with makeup I am equally obsessed with skincare .

The first product I am sharing with you is the

YES TO PRIMROSE OIL 2-IN-1 FACIAL WIPES

The Super soothing facial wipes are suitable for cleansing sensitive skin.

Formulated to care for even the most irritable of skin, the Miracle Oil Calm & Soothe PrimRose Oil 2 In 1 Cleansing Moisturising Face Wipes are the perfect purifying addition to your skincare routine. The primrose infused wipes work tirelessly to lift stubborn makeup and oil whilst ridding the surface of dulling impurities meaning you can be confident in your glowing, soothed skin no matter what!

  • Primrose Oil – A soothing and calming oil that helps to relax the skin.
  • 98% Natural.
    I love using these wipes in the first step of removing my makeup.no more than one wipe is used because this product does a great job of taking off the first layer of my makeup.
    The wipe has a pleasant and delicate smell which makes it suitable for freshening up a makeup free face throughout the day.
    For my girls with oily skin I promise you this will not leave you oilier than you were before,this product gives you a natural glow which is great for the summer .If you’re interested in these facial wipes please click the Link here or below.get glowing
