We're nearly a month in, hurray! Thanks for already giving this brand new blog a chance, but there's always room for improvement, isn't there? I've given myself a bit of an evaluation and here's what I think I should work on. Read along?
This one speaks for itself, I think. Most of the pictures I take for this blog are taken with my cell phone, and although they could look a lot worse than that, I've decided to up my game and turn to a digital camera we still had lying around. I definitely see myself investing in something better in the future, but I'll manage with what I have for now as I simply don't have the budget for it. I'm also putting together a prop box that I can always fall back on, and reading tons of posts about blog photography for inspiration. Pinterest is full of those, bless.
FINDING THE PERFECT SCHEDULE AND WORKFLOW
Updating every day is definitely something that will get your blog more traffic, I'm sure, but it's just not always easy when you're not home often enough and have to work until 6.30. I'm still trying to find the perfect schedule that'll enable me to post as many days as possible, BUT won't have me losing interest and inspiration. The planning ahead has definitely helped since the beginning, but I'm not quite there yet.
WRITE MORE SPONTANEOUSLY
With this I mean that I should work up the habit of writing down ideas and things I'm interested in more quickly, and even write out a first draft while I'm at it. I'm a bit all over the place when it comes to things I love; it can move on to something else in a second. Writing more stuff down will help me remember what I wanted to say, without losing track of my own thoughts. On the other hand, I want to leave a bit more room in the above mentioned tight schedule to post more personal and right-at-that-moment thoughts. Which brings me to the last paragraph, actually.
I have a lot of ideas that I don't even have the courage to write about, simply because I don't think I'm entitled to, or I'm scared it won't be good enough. Blogging is about being yourself, though, and not about comparing yourself to others or thinking your own opinions don't live up to the standards. I'm convinced this blog will last longer if I stay true to myself and enable myself to write about something I don't often write about but do have something to say about. This doesn't mean it'll always be heavy personal stuff, by the way, I am also talking about beauty banter here. You'll see, I'm working on it. ;-)
