There is so much blog advice around the web today. It's something which every blog has touched upon at some point in their blogging career. I am a firm believer that we should take blog advice with a pinch of salt and not let it alter what you want to produce for your blog, or tamper with your creativity. Carrying a mindset like this when reading blog advice. Advice can then be a really helpful tool in giving you a head start in creating the best blog for you and your audience.

Today I'm sharing a new series of mine named ' 5 Bloggers'. Each month I will ask five different bloggers their views or advice on a certain topic. To start of the series I have choose quite a simple question which is 'Blog Advice'. Below is five bloggers blog advice.

"When Sinead asked me to write a paragraph on blogging advice I wasn't totally sure where to start. Of course it's always worth noting that attractive photographs, a clean blog design and well written pieces are important, but I tried to think of what makes a blog truly stand out to me. The conclusion that I came to is exceptional content. Well that's hardly a useful bit of advice is it? But I'll explain. Everybody's got something to give. Everyone has some talent or trinket of knowledge that they can share with the world. To be honest, while they're certainly fun every once in a while, everyone can do a haul post. Not everyone, however, can teach you how to paint watercolour poppies or make a DIY headboard or code a beautiful website. I think if you can tap into what unique skills you have to offer and build off of that, you'll be on the path to creating something exceptional. "

"When I think at when I started, I realize blogging is a journey: there's no magic formula to succeed that can be adapted to every blogger, you have to find your own path, get your hands dirty and truly believe in what you're doing. I've changed my mind about my blog so many times, I've changed topics, typology of posts, the way I take photos, and yet it's still an on-going process: you'll never stop learning. If I'd be asked what's my best advice for new bloggers, I'd say to stay true to yourself always, even if you're blog is growing fast and so do the opportunities that're offered to you. Always remember your initial purpose and be open to the possibility to learn and get better at what you do. It can require time to find your own niche, you'll change your mind quite often, but that's the true beauty of the blogging experience."

"I think the most important thing about writing a blog is to have fun. I think it really comes across to your readers when you’re publishing something that your heart isn’t in, and I’ve mentioned on my own blog about quality being better than quantity. If you’re having fun with your blog, I’m sure your blog will be amazing. That’s the best advice I could give!"

L Y D I A  -  L O V E L Y  J U B B L Y

"Blogging is such a personal thing. What I do won't suit others and what others do probably won't suit me but I think there are three pieces of advice which would be universally helpful. The number one most important piece of advice I would give would be to just write about what you love, it's easy to see when a persons heart isn't in a post so I would say only write about things you are passionate about. Another important piece of advice (and one that I really need to try and follow myself) is to not worry about getting posts up if you really don't have the time or motivation. Yes, it's good to post regularly and be consistent but 9 times out of 10 your readers won't mind if you don't post one week - we're all humans after all and sometimes it's difficult to juggle school/work/social lives and a blog. Last, but by no means least, I would say try and make your photos as clear and good as possible (saying that, please don't go out and buy a DSLR unless you're in it for the long haul and also have an interest in photography). Nowadays, iPhones take fantastic quality photos and with a little cropping and editing any photo can look fantastic. Photos are the first thing that draws most people to a blog so keep on snapping away and soon your photos will be looking as good as ever! "

"It is so easy to get sucked in to what people think a blog should be. It is all well if you set out to solely be a beauty or fashion blogger - which is great. But a lot of us feel restricted because we struggle to fit into either, and feel like we cannot express our creativity in a certain way because it does not fall into a certain category. But it is so important to know that it is your space on the internet, express yourself and enjoying publishing content you enjoy creating and want to share. After all, variety is the spice of life. I personally love reading blogs that show both personality and a variety of content. It gives you a better understanding of the blogger, who they are and what they enjoy to do, as well as what they're favourite foundations and concealers are.” 

I hope you found this blog post helpful and hopefully you are looking forward to nest month's topic. I would like to thank the five bloggers who took the time out of their busy schedule to write and share their views. I urge you all to head over to their blog's and give them a cheeky follow. 

Also if you have any suggestions for future topics do let me know.
