I know I've not been blogging for years but I do feel like I've been blogging for long enough to have picked up a few tips so I thought I would share them with you guys. I'm not telling any of you guys how to blog I just know that I like these types of blog posts because there's always something I can pick up from them. I hope you find thses tips helpful!
Photos Of The Product On
If you're reviewing a product, for example a mascara, take a photo of you without it on and then you with it on so your readers can actually see the difference, even if you don't want to do a before and after, make sure to at least have a photo of you wearing it. I've read so many blog posts and liked the sound of a product but without a picture of it actually on I won't go out and buy it. Especially if it's a lipstick, sometimes the colour looks different on the lips or it might be sheer but you can't really tell without a photo.
I can't stress how important paragraphs are! I think they make it so much easier to read a post as it breaks it down and you don't feel like there's as much to read even if there is. I also think posts look much better aesthetically when there are paragraphs as opposed to just a block of text. If you're unsure of when to start a paragraph then do it as soon as you start talking about something different, so if you're doing your everyday makeup routine, start a new paragraph when you move onto the next product.
Your layout is the first thing a new reader will see so you want to make sure it's clear and well thought out. You don't want things cluttering up the page or too much going on. I suggest keeping to a simple colour theme and if you want to use a bright colour only use on or two otherwise stick to pastels and whites. Make sure you have links as well so everything is easily accesible, it'll also help your readers see what type of posts you do. Another thing is to make sure you have links to your social media sites so that your readers can find you easily.
I'm not trying to tell you guys how to run your blogs I just wanted to give you a few tips, I hope the helped :)
