So todays post is more of an updated on what’s going on with the new blog! (im soooooo excited). Lately I’ve been spending literally all of my free time looking up self-hosted WordPress tips, what plugins to use etc. trying to get prepared for the launch of HerCharisma. I’ve been learning some amazing tips, and I wanted to share some things so you all know what to look forward too!
Every time I read any tips about becoming a successful blogger it always starts off with a list of questions you need to ask yourself. You need to understand you niche, who your reader is, what you have to offer that makes you different….and the list goes on. It’s really overwhelming. I mean I want the success and all but I didn’t realize it meant I had to so much self-reflecting. I took two weeks off from blogging (to enjoy my vacation in Hawaii)and it gave me some time to think of some answers for these questions. In light of me rebranding my blog I figured I would share it with you and hopefully give you insight on how to answer these questions too.
Sometimes Blogging makes me have a mini heart attack. I have twitter chats to keep up with, blog posts to schedule, I need to respond to comments, look up other blogs, and this list goes on. Most of which is crammed into a 2 day weekend( along with the rest of my life), and sometimes things slip through the cracks. In a perfect world blogging would be my full time job, or I would be rich and wouldn’t have to work so I could blog as a hobbie. But since neither are my reality I constantly have alot to juggle.
Thought It would be fun to do a why I blog tag! Feel free to tag yourself if you like!
What are you working on?
Wow where do I even start with answering this question! I’m currently in the process of rebranding my entire blog. New designs, new and more focused content, new marketing strategies. It’s all quite overwhelming! Some of the biggest changes will be in blog design, plus I have a huge surprise coming soon (which will be announced soon!) I’m also thinking about getting a new camera and lighting equipment, I heard the Canon Rebel is a great DSLR for beginners! Also trying to master social media and expand so if you have any tips feel free to comment!
I’m excited to announce that I have a guest post from one of my favorite bloggers! A glamorous revelation! Munachi and I have been working on this for weeks to try and bring some diversity to both of our blogs. So today she is going to be talking about how to monetize your blog, and my post is about “Finding the perfect pair of jeans“.
