Happy Monday to all you lovely people! ☺
It’s my 3 Year Blogiversary
Even though it’s been three years since I created Kind Culture, I still feel like I’m starting out. I’m yet to achieve so much more!
This blog has opened up opportunities to collaborate with so many wonderful people and be a part of an amazing community of bloggers that advise and support one another. I am honestly so grateful for all the opportunities and connections that I’ve made through Kind Culture.
As it’s my three-year blogiversary, I thought I’d share 3 tips for those of you that want to start a blog.
3 Tips for new bloggers:
1. Find your niche
Before you start blogging, take your time to plan everything – from what it is that you want to blog about, to who you want your readers to be, and what platforms you want to use etc. Finding and establishing your niche helps keep the rest of your content focussed and helps you find your tribe.
Admittedly, I wish that I spent more time keeping my content focussed on my niche. In the past two years, I learnt to work on that skill and as a result my blog reach grew significantly.
2. Be honest with your readers
Having a genuine connection with readers that relate to you and engage with your content is what makes the difference between being just a blogger and being the best blogger possible.
Being honest with how I’m feeling, and my experiences, has given the chance for my readers to connect on a more personal level. And the mutual support is uplifting.
3. Make the blog work for you
– Don’t work for it!
Your blog shouldn’t overshadow your other commitments in life. Part of the fun in having a blog is that you’re in charge. Don’t allow yourself to become overwhelmed with everything. Sometimes as bloggers, it’s easy to get caught up in posting consistently, maintaining social media following, and everything else that comes with blogging. It’s okay to just take a step back from blogging to focus on other things in life.
Most of the best changes that I made to my blog came from the times that I took a break from blogging.
Everyone has their own style of working, and your blog should fit around that.
I’d love to share more advice with any new bloggers that are looking to start out, feel free to email me anytime you like.
I’ve not been feeling too well so I haven’t had the chance to buy some cupcakes (that’s basically my little way of celebrating, hence the stock image), but I will definitely be celebrating this milestone soon!
Thank you for all of your love and support ♥
