You know it's happened to you. It's been a few days since your last post, and you have no idea what to blog about. What's a blogger to do?
Well, I'm here now to give you a few ideas :)
1-Look at other peoples blogs and see what they're doing.
I often get blog post ideas from looking at other crocheting blogs. For example, yesterday I was looking at Freshstitches.com (which BTW, is an awesome blog). The blogger (Stacey Trock) posts almost everyday. That's a lot of blogging!
As I was looking through her blog posts, I wondered "How does she get so many ideas for these blog posts?". And then, boom! This idea landed in my head: Do a blog post about what to blog about.
So, tip number one is look around: Don't copy, but see what other people are doing. I find that this helps me think of lots of great ideas.
2-Think of something awesome.
Have you ever been reading a blog post where someone thought of a really clever and neat idea? Were you like "Why didn't I think of that?"? If you can make someone say that, then you must be doing something right.
Here is an idea I thought of that I encourage you to do a blog post on:
1- Find an old, at least 30% wool hat. For me, this was perfect for the job:
But, imagine how cute the hat would be if it was a turquoise blue, and had brand-new cream colored pompoms? In my mind, that would be very cute.
So, I encourage you to use this idea as an opportunity to blog :)
3-Have a weekly post.
If you don't have one of these, I suggest you create one. A few ideas are WIP Wednesday, FO Friday, Tip Tuesday, ETC. That's just to name a few. Another great thing about weekly posts is that people know when you are going to post. So, if you have something you really want to get noticed, post two posts that day. The weekly post, plus the other post. People know that you're going to post that day, and if you post something like a pattern sale on the same day as the weekly post, your sale will get some extra traffic from your weekly post.
Now that you've read this, go! Start blogging! Your readers are waiting!
