Gah, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to help people with their blogging. I’m not sure that I have any pearls of wisdom to share at all! I am going to be reading posts with some vigour though in case I can glean any super tips from the rest of the BEDN-ers. I am constantly in awe of bloggers who work a full time job, live interesting lives AND manage to blog about them. I’m even more impressed with craft and food bloggers who work and manage to post recipes and how to’s regularly – I just don’t know where you find the time (especially now it’s winter and light is at a premium) And fashion bloggers. Having your photo’s taken all the time. Props to you. I hate posing for pictures.
But despite not being the greatest, whittiest, prettiest blogger, I love having a corner of the internet to say what ever I want. I know that some 3D friends take the piss out of me for blogging and it used to upset me but i now know they aren’t worth worrying about. Blogging has opened some lovely doors for me. It makes me try new things and I’ve met some wonderful people – in real life and online so in fairness I think the piss takers are the ones missing out.
The one thing that I have done this year, that I’ll be carrying through to next year is having a diary to plan my blog posts in. I made a Personal Planner last January. When I started using it, it was specifically for this blog but quickly became my everyday diary, but with space for my blogging too. Before I was quite adhoc with my posts but having somewhere to organise them and think about them, makes it easier to plan.
How do you plan your blog posts?
