How are y'all doin? Sometimes I feel like I run out of things to blog about. I really wonder how Style bloggers do it, especially the ones who post frequently. Do they have to continually buy clothes to keep up with blogging? My guess is getting a lot of free or discounted clothes, as well as buying a lot of separates that they can create multiple outfits from (like a Capsule Wardrobe). I have many plans for my Vlisco separates (and will hopefully share them on the blog).
Anyways, for times when I don't know what to blog about, there are a few things that I do to come up with a post.
- Search within - By this I mean I go through a little memory jog to see if anything funny, or interesting has happened to me. Sometimes it can be from a conversation (like the ones I've posted here, here and here between Cakes and I). At other times, it can be from an experience like the post where I talked about being called out on my accent. Or more recently, my funny story about forgetting my clothes in the car while I went to the gym.
- Find the numbers - This point is something that Tuke Morgan and Cassie Daves have down pat!!! For instance, they can create multiple posts out of one outing. I have also tried that route. An example would be my weekend post where I showed off my Toju Foyeh dress, and then my review of Johnny Rockets where I wore the dress to. As a matter of fact, if I was very good with makeup and trying to do tutorials here, I would have also put up a makeup post and a tutorial on how to put braids in a bun. See? It just takes a little imagination and creativity.
- Copy others - When I say copy, I don't mean that you should go and copy someone's blog post and pretend it's yours. I wouldn't even say that you should copy everything and link back to that person. What I mean is that you can be inspired by a blog post, put your own spin on it, and then create a post for yourself. If you are copying, it's best to do a tag, e.g. 100 Questions tag, or a What's In My Bag post.
- Search "Blog Post Ideas" - Go to Google and type in "Blog Post Ideas." Trust me, you might get overwhelmed with the number of posts that you could potentially write!!!
So those are my tips. How do you come up with ideas for your blog posts?
