Hello everyone, I’m back with another informational post about blogging. If you missed the first one I made, you can click here to read about the things I wish I knew before I started blogging.
Now, sometimes I just wing it, especially if it’s something super personal. There’s not a lot of planning involved, and I just speak from my heart.
Starts with the Topic/Title
If not, I write the title in a notebook, until I feel like I get inspiration to write some of the post.
Actually Starting to Write
Afterwards, I usually write the firsts few sentences of the post (these tend to be the hardest). Then, I open up WordPress and transfer whatever I wrote in the notebook onto the computer. I like this a lot, because I tend to edit whatever wording I wasn’t crazy about. It’s just a simple way to edit, and make sure that nothing sounds weird or is spelled incorrectly.
Finally, I add in any images that relate to the post. If I don’t have any images, I wait to have the lighting that I want to take images of whatever will work for the post I am writing. I use either my phone (IPhone 6), my Canon G7xII, or my Canon Rebel T3I.
Creating a Featured Image
Lastly I add in my featured image. This is the image that is going to be in the spotlight on my blog. It is also the one image that is going to be circulated the most throughout all of my social media pages. I used to use Picmonkey, but I definitely prefer and recommend Canva. They have so many templates that I like to use. I like using featured images, because it allows my blog to look much more cohesive. All of my featured images in the last two months have been a shade of pink.
I hoped this helped a bit. Maybe it will give you guys better ideas on how to plan your future blog posts. If you have any questions, leave a comment down below or message me on one of my social media pages! I promise to get back to you as soon as possible. Hope you guys have a wonderful day/night. Sending you all love and positive vibes!
