I write this today, not as a blogger, influencer, or content creator who has worked with select companies in the past to promote their products or services. I write this today as a person who has spent years in public relations, managing influencer campaigns and working my butt off to bring on the best bloggers, Instagram creators, and what-have-you, so that companies and brands were connected with the right people.
Honestly, the biggest challenge I face as a blogger is coming up with blog post ideas. I’m usually pretty diligent about a monthly or weekly calendar – just a general idea of what I want to focus on in the near future.
Sometimes my brain just runs out of ideas and I’m stuck with this giant gap in my blog, even though I always try to have consistent content, either on my blog or on my Instagram account. What does this usually look like? It looks like at least 3 Instagram posts and 1-2 blog posts per week. Is that a lot? No. Does it help me stay on track without sucking all of my energy? Absolutely.
Whether you’re a new blogger or a seasoned pro, the way your blog looks is important. Here are 5 WordPress themes that are always perfect!
Whether you’re a seasoned blogger or a newbie just starting to dip their toes into the water, a WordPress theme that matches with your own personal taste and style is always key. I’ve found, in my time blogging, that the aesthetic of my blog needs to consistently inspire me. When I visit the homepage, does it set off creative sparks or does it have me craving a change? If I can visit an old post and be charmed by the smallest details in the sidebar or the simplicity of my logo, then I know the blog theme is one I’m happy with.
As bloggers, and creatives in general, I think we’re prone to the “do it all, all the time” mentality. We like to think we can juggle 8 million tasks at once like some sort of deranged circus clown. But really, we’re all just human and, as such, sometimes prioritization and a good blogger to-do checklist are exactly what we need.
