Hi everyone! Long time no see ya, huhuhu..
Iya nih, my bad for being MIA for a while.. :)
But no worries folks, because today I'm back with a new post!
For today's post I'm thinking about going back to basics with blogging.
I mean, when you're reading this right now, maybe you could be a reader or maybe a blogger just like me. So, I would like to share about some tips before you dive into this blogging world. (Kayak terjun ke dunia tarik suara, tapi ini terjun ke dunia blogging gitu ya, hehe)
Ok, here we go!
First is Know What You Want.
I mean, what kind of blog you want to write?
A beauty blog? A fashion blog? Or an all-round everything about me blog?
Because if you don't think about it now, you might stop halfway because you don't know what to write anymore.
Second is Do Your Research.
Google is your best friend, so use it to gain information as much as possible.
What blog host suits you best? I personally recommend Blogger.com because it's the one I've been using for years (almost 5 years now, phew) and it's the easiest one to manage, IMO. Of course there are others like Wordpress, Tumblr, Typepad and so on. You can choose which one suits you best.
For newbie writer who wants to know the tips about blog writing, do check out problogger.net
for more insight.
If you want to write you need something to tell, right? So read as many articles/blog posts as possible to widen your knowledge. To make it easier, I use the Imotiv app and I make a list for beauty blogs, writing blogs etc. I have written about the app for several times, so you can check them out here.
For templates, I love browsing in btemplates.com for my resources. To master the CSS language takes time, but it's worth to learn.
Third is Join the Community.
It's no fun blogging alone. So find your friends online! We have awesome Indonesian Beauty Blogger community already up and running for almost 1,5 years now, and we are growing fast. Check out our FB group, page and website to join with us. Don't worry we won't bite, hahaha.
When we first started IBB, we thought we were just a small group of beauty bloggers, but boy we were wrong! There are thousands of us in Indonesia (some also blogging from outer state) and I feel so proud that IBB has managed to go this far. We are a very active community and it just makes beauty blogging so much fun!
Fourth is about Continuity.
After you start, never stop.
Because of blogging, I have friends whom I've known since they were single, still young and studying at school until now they are happily married and have children. And they are still blogging. We have been through so much together, and we are blessed so much because of our friendship online and offline. Isn't it beautiful?
There are more tips about beauty blogging that I wanted to write, but I guess I’ll stop here for today’s post. Whether you want to start a beauty blog or a diary blog, do it with passion, don’t just do it half-heartedly and stop halfway. Who knows where blogging can take you?
Alright then, I’ll see you in the next post! Byee~
