Hi! Thanks for messaging me - so glad you’re enjoying my content!!
From what I’ve learned about blogging thus far, there a few aspects to making a really successful and appealing blog and they are:
Content: First off know your content and by that I mean know what you want your blog to be centered around and what you will be primary writing and sharing with the public. There are a lot of common categories that we like to give blogs whether it be personal style or DIY, etc. But I’m telling you, if you know you’re content it’ll be much easier to establish your point of view and voice!
Quality: Do your best not to reproduce what’s already been done, and if you like what’s been done, twist it into your own perspective and way! Have quality commentary, and images - people will be drawn to your blog visually if you have clean writing and crystal-clear images (avoid pixelated or too small/large photos). You want to have a nice flow visually to first attract a potential reader.
Aesthetic: Kind of bridging off quality, it’s best to have a simple and clean layout that it’s easy to navigate. You don’t want people overwhelmed by too many in-your-face kind of images. As such, it’s important to follow the idea of “Less is more” but still add personal elements that represent you, your expression and the idea of your blog!
Tying all of three of these things together always remember this… Be confident! Have a confident voice and vision, because if you believe in what you’re saying, other people will too! Also, remember to blog and do whatever you do in life because you absolutely love it and can’t picture yourself doing anything else. Don’t just do it for followers, if you love what you’re doing, people will instinctively become attracted to that and follow and support you in your endeavors.
