Lets get blogging

Posted: September 2nd, 2014 by Alison

These days if you have a website you have a blog. But what do you write about and will people read it?

When I redesigned my website I wanted to re-think my strategy for my blog, planning the content and really thinking about what I should write, articles that hopefully people would be interested in reading.

A friend of mine recommended a really good book, “Blogging for Creatives” by Robin Houghton which helped me plan and focus on what I wanted to write about. It is mainly aimed at people in the creative industry, from designers to writers but actually the content is relevant to anyone who is thinking about setting up their own blog. It goes through the process of setting it up online to planning out your content.

I now have a content plan for the next month which I fill out in advance, I don’t have the panic every Monday “What am I going to say this week!”

A blog is an evolving thing and you may find that the type of articles you write about changes as you gain more confidence and experience. I feel that my blog is only just beginning and I am always looking for feedback on what I have written or what people might want me to write about.
