So it’s the end of the month, and if you’re like us, you’re probably counting out 10p’s to pay for lunch (thank heavens for self service checkouts, because it’s much easier to throw all the change in to the machine!)
One of the problems with blogging is that so many bloggers feels like they have to spend loads of money on buying the latest products to review or wear in an outfit post. We thought we’d make a list of all the different types of post that you can do that don’t involve any new purchases – it’s not all about the money!
No matter what your blog genre is, there are certain posts that everyone can do. Wishlists are always popular – it might be your wish list, but you might end up influencing other people to buy stuff! If you know how to do something, then you could share how that DIY is done – maybe a recipe or how to customise a notebook or something? Everyone has certain tips that they can share – whether it’s tips on how to get about or how to save money, your tips are going to be useful to someone!
Blogging is a very personal thing, so sharing some unusual facts about yourself will help your readers get to know you better – and a week in photos can also do the same, showing the reader your real world life!
If you’re a fashion blogger, you could talk about the latest trends, or if it’s around Fashion Week season, you could talk about what’s being seen on the catwalks?
If you’re a beauty blogger, you can also talk about translating the trends into make up or something we always enjoy is when bloggers “shop their stash” – remember that lippie you bought, used a few times and then forgot about when the latest and greatest new product comes out? Rediscover your make up bag!
Finally, our favourite sort of post (which you might have noticed we’re doing on a weekly basis) is to share your favourite blogs (or blog posts you’ve read this week) – you will end up introducing your readers to new to them blogs, and isn’t it always lovely to share some love?
Does money influence what you blog about?
Really useful tips! Given me some ideas to give my bank balance a much deserved rest for a bit! :)
Great post, I always love reading other peoples tips so I don’t know why I don’t do it more myself! xx
Your post about Bristol shopping is pretty awesome though! Exactly the sort of thing this post was about!
Money can definitely influence what you blog about. I have a blog called CheapDude.com and I struggle with it sometimes as it is hard to write about cheap stuff and get compensated. Ideally I would love to blog more about Travel, but it would cost too much and wouldn’t be sustainable. Hopefully one day I can get there!
Thank you for this, I’m a sixteen year old blogger so I can’t always afford everything I want and to write posts on, but these ideas have really helped me.
Thank you x
