BLOGGING 101 | Round-Up

blogging 101 round up

For today's blog post I thought it might be fun to round up everything I've written about blogging. This year I started a series called BLOGGING 101 and previously wrote some additional posts that should still be helpful (like my photo equipment!). I get questions daily about how to start a blog and how to grow on social media so I thought it would be nice to put everything in one place!

I'm listing this post first because it talks about the blogging basics. Questions to ask if you're thinking about starting a blog, the first steps to take once you've decided to give it a go, deciding on a blog name, where to buy a domain, equipment you'll need, and some insight into my own journey. 

photo equipment to take your own photos

I highly recommend checking out this post if you're interested in taking your own photos. Trust me, it will make life SO much easier when you need a quick photo for the gram and no one is around. My boyfriend works a 9-5 and it's expensive to pay someone every day... but there are tools to help!

This is by far the most commonly asked question. I wish there was a magic answer, but sadly it just takes a lot of time, consistency, and patience. Things used to move quicker, but nowadays with so many bloggers entering the industry and all of the social algorithms, it's much more of a challenge.

I wrote this post because I know there is a lot of curiosity around blogging and how people make money. I chat about how I earn a living and my journey to making any money at all. It's definitely not an overnight process and it's important to know what's in store if you're thinking of blogging yourself.

Another common question I get is "How do you stay inspired?" It's definitely not easy some days. I feel like I go through periods of time where I'm super inspired and then weeks where I hit a lull. Totally normal when you work as a creative - this post sheds light on my fave place to find inspo!

Lastly, but probably most importantly, how to thrive as a blogger without feeling the need to always compete. It's a competitive industry where it's easy to lose yourself, and if you aren't careful, the whole thing can become not so fun. Read the post & quote that made me feel free to do my own thing.

I really hope these posts are a helpful resource.
I've had a lot of fun putting them together and will definitely do more in the future!
