Let’s be super honest here, creating just a blog can be super confusing sometimes, and might have nights where you end up having a huge ass migraine! Well sometimes it’s easy said then done that when you post content you want to make sure you target the right audience. 𝑺𝒐𝒄𝒊𝒂𝒍 𝒎𝒆𝒅𝒊𝒂 𝒊𝒔 𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒚 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒃𝒆𝒔𝒕 𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒄𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝒎𝒂𝒌𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒎𝒐𝒏𝒆𝒚 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒘𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒏 𝒊𝒕 𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒔 𝒕𝒐 𝒃𝒍𝒐𝒈𝒈𝒊𝒏𝒈, 𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒓𝒆𝒑𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒆𝒖𝒓, 𝒑𝒖𝒃𝒍𝒊𝒄 𝒇𝒊𝒈𝒖𝒓𝒆, 𝒔𝒐𝒄𝒊𝒂𝒍 𝒎𝒆𝒅𝒊𝒂 𝒔𝒆𝒏𝒔𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏/𝒎𝒐𝒅𝒆𝒍, 𝒐𝒓 𝒋𝒖𝒔𝒕 𝒘𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒆𝒙𝒑𝒐𝒔𝒖𝒓𝒆. Sometimes it can be hard, but once you actually start figuring out different tricks & tips on how to build, it definitely will work. Social media does play a big part of building your blog but you have to make sure you do it the right way! I will give you 7 tips on how.
Don’t use your personal social media account to promote your blogs #MakeAnewAccount
When you you use your main social media account sometimes it defeats the purpose. “My opinion!” I think it is more valuable when you make an account specifically for your blogs. You can be able to explain better in detail, have debates, and all around target the main point of whatever blog you just published. You want to make sure your audience be able to understand, relate, & focus just on that blog, so you can be able to bring them to visit your website. It’s all about posting good content & giving your readers more of a reason to enjoy your content as well.
Use your creativity
Being creative is something that comes natural regardless. Sometimes a lot of people feel they aren’t creative, but don’t understand that everyone is in there own way. Find different things to post on your social media that will bring attention to your social media. Host a giveaway, have a poll on your Instagram story, or go live and interact with others.
Make videos on (Insta story, Insta post, Igtv)
When you make videos, it just helps brings more audience, and also a good way to show your authentic self. Let people get to know your personality, and be able to visually see you. Sometimes by just posting pictures aren’t just enough. Talk about your upcoming blogs, what do your readers want you to blog about next, or just whatever that comes to mind. You are the host remember that, so think of some of your good skills you have, and put them to use. The more you stay active, the easier it will get to start getting people to notice you.
Be consistent with your followers
Yes, consistency is the key. When using social media, your social skills are important. People adapt to those who are communicative & open. Make sure you reply to comments, & DM’s, because that’s what your audience would like. No need to act sassy and ignore those who are asking a simple question, or just want to shoot you some advice. Not even that, but what if a company is interested in working wit you and like your content. You don’t want to pass up good opportunities.
Stay active by posting everyday. Even if it’s a simple quote, picture, or just something that you want to discuss. Especially until you build your social media following up, eventually you can make a routine on what days you post, but save that when you elevate & actually have a good amount of following.
High Quality Photos
Photos is another way to bring a large audience. Make sure you download good photo editing apps like Photoshop Express, PicsArt, and many more. Even myself can admit that when i see awesome photos it brings my attention right away. Sometimes you have to think as if it was you who will be interested.
Hashtags is another way to build up your following, actually a quick way. There are billions of users who use hashtags, be one of them. Make sure you use the right hashtags and also switch them up. Sometimes using the exact same hashtags for months & months, will make it hard to get your page noticed. So yes use hashtags! You can search up viral hashtags on google of course.
I hope these tips can help, they definitely helped me in so many ways. Screenshot so you can have them in your phone.
As humans we have to cure our minds & focus on self-care first. We tend to focus more on what’s not important then what’s actually important.
Self-care is doing what needs to be done, and balancing all goals you want to achieve in life. Self-care also nourishes your spirit and pushes you to strive hard everyday.
If you don’t take care of yourself or to harsh on your body you will become overwhelmed. That’s why I’ve pulled together 8 SELF-CARE HABITS FOR THE MIND for you!!
1. Take time off. Striving hard everyday is really important because the whole point is to achieve your goals, but sometimes it becomes tiring & a issue.
2. Find some quiet time. Sometimes our lives are so busy we don’t never have time for peace and quiet.
3. Positive self-talk. Often times, you are your own worst critic. That little voice at the back of your head can get real disgusting.
4. Get Bodywork. Our bodies store emotional tension in ways that we don’t even realize or notice, and bodywork allows us to release that built up tension.
5. Spend Time in Nature. Spending time in nature can actually be healthy for you, such as lowering your stress hormone levels. Get outside. Go explore, hit the beach, go hiking. Enjoy hearing the birds and the sound of waterfalls, enjoyourbeautiful nature.
6. Eliminate Toxicity. Eliminate your amount of time you spend in negativesituations or people that drain or leaveyou feeling stressed & over the top.
Alwayssurroundyourselfaround care, love, & positive energy.
7. Feed Your Mind. As a human, of course we are here to grow, learn, and elevate. Learning something new becomes interesting for us humans because it keeps our lives going and more interesting.
Try reading a new book, listening to a podcast, or even go to a museum.
8. Get Creative. Use your creative skills and put them to use. We all have a creative side, sometimes some of us just don’t know exactly what it is. When I say creative I don’t necessarily mean you have to be artistically creative. For an example, I like to take pictures, also I like to dress up, so I will dress up and take multiple photos and edit them, that’s part of my creativity gift. I was always told I take nice photos of myself.
When your life becomes more stressful and overwhelming sometimes sleeping it off isn’t always just quite enough. I feel that taking time out and actually working on the things that are bothersome can be a bit challenging but 100% worth trying. I have learned so much about facts on self-care that don’t always mean it have to be the simple things like getting a massage or drinking chamomile tea.
My #1 thought now is to focus on more of my inner self then my outer self. Learning how to block out unwanted bullsh*t, and focusing on your mind&body should always be your motive. I learned how to dump the past me and let go of things not worth me bringing into my life today. I feel more at ease when i begin to do my own research on fixing my issues dealing with stress. So here are a few facts that might help you.
SET LIMITS FOR YOURSELF
Learning to focus on you more, is helping you build your self-confidence. SAY NO SOMETIMES!
It’s totally fine to be confused, and to allow yourself to not be committed and to be responsible for other people. I know it is some people out there like myself probably made (promises&commitments) to do things they second guessed about agreeing to. If you are unsure, just know you don’t have to and not obligated to. SET LIMITS for yourself.
“Stop giving more to others then you are giving to yourself, focus on you more even if it sounds selfish.”
KEEP YOUR SAME ENERGY
STICK TO YOUR WORDS
NO MEANS NO!
DON’T HAVE NO REGRETS WHEN YOU SAY NO
STAY COMMITTED TO YOURSELF
DON’T FEEL SORRY FOR YOURSELF
BREATHE IN LET IT OUT
Everyone bodies react differently when they are under some kind of stress, but most people still feel the same symptoms. You start to feel weak, heart beating at a much faster pace, break out in the face, muscles tighten up, and so much more. To deal with these random stress symptoms, you have to train your mind to notice every sign of stress so you will know how to respond in stressful situations. Practice breathing techniques to help you relax better. These are some techniques i do that help me out a lot i found online on http://www.sarahrosecoaching.com very helpful! been using these for a little bit!
PROCESS IT THROUGH
Turn off your old thoughts and write down some new ones. You deserve a good mental cleanse. Try journaling, free thoughts writing, or get on your laptop, go to your note pad and type away. You have to process it all through and not just rush into your thoughts. My favorite thing to do is a Mental Cleanse. ←Click that if curious.
RE-EVALUATING YOUR PRIORITIES
Are you taking time out to think things through? Are you focusing on what is important instead of what is not? Are you worrying more than caring less about irrelevant things? Have you ever thought that maybe you need to take time out to figure out what are you really stressing for and what can you do to let it go? Maybe you trying to do more than what you can even handle. Pay attention and look at back then and now and see where exactly is things falling off so you can fix them.
#1 PRIORITY: FOCUS ON SELF-CARE FOREVER!
So yoga has been one of the things that have helped me a lot when i am stressed. You can try so many yoga techniques Try downloading apps or finding online yoga classes so you can stay in the comfort of your own home. Lately i been using Yogaburn, not only it helped me to lose some pounds it helped me relieve a lot of stress. Just click the yoga burn tab for more information. Promise you it’s worth it!
STAY OUT THE MIX
Sometimes we get caught up into situations that has nothing to do with US. Drama, Drama, Drama is something you don’t need added to your stress. Easy said then done that sometimes the company you keep try to drag you in there mess and you have to learn how to just say no, or not just feed into it. No matter how much you love your friends and family members sometimes it’s best to love them from a distance. Now when someone vent it is totally fine, venting is healthy and sometimes we need to express ourselves. But…going back & forth and dealing with toxic people can be overwhelming and put you in a bad place. You have to learn how to take a step and putting your guards up between you and them by protecting your happiness, energy, and ability to focus on your own problems.
“At a time in my life i always felt obligated, but when i realize that i was to in tuned with everyone else problems instead of mines, i realized i had to let go. When i begin to stay out the mix, i started to be more happy, now i wake up with more happiness in my heart, and less worry”
I wonder how many others have any thing they do for themselves when life gets hectic? Please drop down in the comments! I would love to learn some new facts or see if someone has something in common with me ;).

Starting a blog is amazing, and definitely a smart choice. Blogging can turn from an hobby to a career. But, becoming a blogger can also be a little intimidating because you have to remember, in ordinary to even blog you have to somewhat be in the spotlight. Not saying you have to try to be a “celebrity” or some “social media famous person”, but you have to build an audience to even get your blogs notice. For some people it’s hard because they either can be shy, not really communicative but better at just writing everything out, or whatever else that’s holding you back. Starting a blog can also be challenging+hard, especially if it’s your first time. Well today i am going to show you a few ways you need to become a successful blogger and what helped me through out this journey then+now.
HOW TO START A BLOG: For Beginners
Find a blogging platform. I recommend “Word press” but it’s another 1 called “Blue host”
SIGN UP “Don’t stall time” What are you waiting for?
find a nice domain name “Either your name, or pick a real dope promising name”
Pick a theme. Don’t rush, take your time, make sure your theme looks presentable.
Monetize your blog. If you want to test out your blogging skills first, then you can, but monetizing is whats going to make you your money honey!
Find a niche
Publish your first blog post. Find a topic. You can talk about whatever you desire. Here are a few blog post ideas Click this ⇒:48 Blog Post Ideas
Now, lets talk about SEO. SEO is the process of optimizing your online content so that a search engine likes to show it as a top result for searches of a certain keyword. You can earn ORGANIC & PAID TRAFFIC. Which is important, you definitely will need visitors+audience. You can use sites like MOZ & AHREFS to help with traffic. Make sure you create content that’s the best on the web for the topic and keyword you’ve chosen. For an example: 5 ways how to stay healthy. Think about it, there are so many people searching that all day long on google. You have to spend a lot of time promoting your brand and striving to reach the goal you know you need to achieve to become a successful blogger.
Internal linking. Always add links in your blog post, it will help google+others navigate your site. Links from one site to another, will definitely give you more exposure in a (good way).
Use social media to drive your followers+others of converting traffic to your blogs. Instagram has where you can post ads and can pay as low as $1 to reach even more people. You can also pick an location where you want your blogs to be seen. Like you can put “UK” “TEXAS”, or just any location you wish to choose from.
Facebook is also a good option. With Facebook you can create a page for your blogs, and you can actually invite your friends+. You can also use there promotion system like Instagram. You can get shares, likes, etc. For an example:
I spent $20, but look how many people i reached. Look at my engagement. I also post informative niche on other Facebook groups + meet new people. So yes! that’s when it gets good, good.
Also other social medias you can use is:
HIGH QUALITY IMAGES + GOOD WORDING
Creating high quality images are simple, affordable, quick, and fun. Now days in this world it’s definitely a good look when you have high quality images. Images make it more easier for others to understand your content or get the idea you are giving them.
Use good formats, add graphs, charts, make small guides, so you can look like an true expert. A well formatted post makes it easier for your readers to see if they will be even interested to continue reading. It have to be an eye catcher. Think as if it was you.
How to do get formatting?:
Write short paragraphs (no more than 4 to 5 lines at the most
Insert high quality images through out your blog
Use Bullets+Numbers | to basically point out information like tips+ideas etc
You can also use our #1 source Google to research other free platforms.
Start off using this information first, and stay on the look out for the second part to this post. I enjoy sharing anything i have learned and discovered through out my time blogging.
