hey frens!! I am so excited for today’s post because it’s a collab with one of my favorite bloggers ever. zainab is so positive and kind and she’s one of the most encouraging people I know!
I can’t wait for you to read her answers, she has some great blogging tips that I know will be helpful!
1) how long have you been blogging/what made you decide to start?
So I’ve been blogging since December of 2019 but I wasn’t really committed until April 2020. I started because I was reading a ton of blogs (like Christina and Camera) and I just wanted to be part of this amazing community!
aw i love this so much! honestly the community is one of the best parts of having a blog and I am so glad you started blogging zainab!
2) what’s your favorite post you’ve ever written on your blog? share a link so everyone can read! 🙂 what about your most successful post?
My favourite post I’ve ever written would have to be my q&a (https://zainabchats.wordpress.com/2020/04/12/its-q-a-time/) just because it’s the first one I’ve ever done and it’s cool how I got to share things with my readers and I just enjoyed writing the answers for the posts!
also check out the answers to her q & a here! I love to do q&a’s (and read them on other blogs) too because it makes me feel so much more connected to my audience!
3) what’s your writing process for posts? explain it from beginning to end?
my writing process usually consists of me first going into my drafts and just coming up with about 2 different post ideas as I post twice a week. Usually my posts are about something I’m passionate about or something I’ve experienced so I start my post with a nice greeting and then I jump straight in! If it’s about something I did I talk about what it is and then how I have done it. If it’s a review I always include the official reviews, my opinion and the synopsis! That’s usually my process for writing posts!
wow that’s great! I always have so much trouble with the introduction lol
4) how do you stay motivated to keep writing content even when you’re busy or it seems like your traffic is down?
I stay motivated through my readers! Just seeing all the lovely comments just makes me think that they like my content and it’s helping them and it’s great to help people! Especially because my blog is about sharing positivity, teenagers usually are stressed from school and etc so I just want to help people!
this is a tough one but I love zainab’s perspective! sometimes I feel down because I see other blogs or influencerws that have way more followers than I do but for me thinking of my audience as people rather than numbers really helps! While 400 followers (thank you so much for that milestone by the way! I love you guys so much!!) might not be huge for other creators, I imagine 400 people in a room and that seems like so much more!
5) any tips for other bloggers or creators? anything else you want to say?
If there’s anyone who is wondering whether they should start a blog just go for it! Just talk about your interests in any way you want! I and everyone else believes in you! And so many other bloggers love to read new blogs or content!
YES 100%! if you are interested in starting a blog just do it! leave your link below if you do and I’ll support you!
