Budding Blogger: How Do You Know What To Blog About?

Q: Ever since I've told the world, okay the people I know, about my blog, I get loads of girls coming up to me and saying: 'I really want to start a blog; I just don't know what to write.' To be honest, I don't really ever have a specific answer for them as blogging is different for every individual. The reasons why you blog should be for yourself and what you post should be completely up to you. However, I can give you some help into finding what you should blog about...

A: You shouldn't follow the crowd and post what everyone else is posting unless it really interests you. If it doesn't interest you it will show in your writing and no one will read it... you probably wont even read it.
When I first started blogging I thought I should do what everyone else did and that was monthly favourites. Ohhh, how I hate monthly favourites. I wrote some anyway and found whilst reading them back that I sounded so bored and dull and that was because I was bored and dull and uninterested in what I was writing. 

So, I guess I can say this to them: write what you want to write. Write what you are generally interested in. If you are not interested in it- don't write about it. Simple. The more you write about what you are interested in the more feedback and communication you will receive from others as you will enjoy doing it. 

Just remember, everything takes time. It does. It will take a good few months of blogging and reading other blogs to find what you are most interested in.

  7. So true, it really shows when people write posts that they enjoy or something that they feel passionate about as opposed to something they write for the sake of writing just because they want it to be a regular feature on the blog :) xx

  8. lovely post :) very true :) would u like to follow each other :) xx

  9. great post! completely agreee! would you like to follow eachother?

  10. Great advice! You're absolutely right - I think posts are best when they're organic and you can see the passion behind it because the blogger loved writing it. Posts with no enthusiasm are rarely successful.
