Starting a blog is hard especially when you don't have a clue about what you're doing but the beauty in having a new blog is no one is expecting anything or paying much attention. The difficulty comes when you have been blogging for a while , you have a readership and more judgement is made regarding your blog. Blogging requires a lot of creativity and no matter how long you will blog for there will always be something to improve on or maybe do better. Blogging is so enjoyable but there is a huge pressure to be perfect and have your blog figured out with in the first six months. This wasn't the case for me, I feel only now after two years of blogging that I have a brief idea of what I want my blog to be. It is so easy to improve your blog even when it has been up and running for a while.
Forget about your blog name - I think every blogger regrets their blog name, mine was a huge mistake and something I will always find cringy but I have to work with what I have got and if I don't believe in my blog who will. If you dwell on a choice you made two / three years ago you won't move on or make the most of what you have.
Don't be afraid to try something new - I mentioned in a previous post How I improved my blog content. This was something which I was quite afraid of doing but I was getting so fed up with constantly talking about beauty and I felt a change was needed. I was very lucky that changing my content went down well and I feel people don't do it enough especially if you are an established blogger as it can be risky but if you have genuine readers they will always stay around and if they don't say you will gain new ones.
Reflect - Sometimes it feels like you aren't getting anywhere with your blog or no one wants to listen but what I find really helps to motivate you is see how far you have come. Look back at your old blog posts and I bet you will see a huge difference and it will make you feel a lot better about you and your blog.
Try a new look- Changing how your blog looks and re designing your blog can work wonders for your blog. Nearly everyone who updates their blog's appearance feel like they are starting a new leaf and feel very inspired with their content and blog. As a reader I love when my favourite blog gets a new look it makes reading their blog even more exciting and enjoyable.
Don't forget about interaction - Sometimes when a blogger gains a reasonable amount of followers they forget about replying to their comments. I really do understand that some of the larger bloggers receive so many comments that it near impossible to reply to them but when some get twenty or less and don't reply I find that quite rude. I think it is hugely important to reply especially when they have taken the time to do so.
Will you be making any improvements to your blog ?
