I recently got a very kind email from a reader named Whitney.
She asked what advice I would give to a someone starting a paper doll blog, because she was thinking about it and she wanted to know what I thought.
The truth is that I’m not an expert on blogging nor am I an expert on website design or SQL or marketing or social media (I don’t even have a facebook page) or really anything else. Problogger has a really solid listing of articles about blogging and blog starting. I’d also recommend reading up about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and the pros and cons of various platforms. Doing homework before you start will make you happier later. I promise.
The thing about paper doll blogs (and really all craft/art blogs out there, I think) is that you’re making all your own content.
Making all your own content is time consuming.
So, here is my one big tip that keeps me sane…
Work as far ahead of yourself as you possibly can.
I know this seems like cheating somehow, but it is the only way I can do this and keep sane. I think it’s is better to have one or two posts a week, consistently, than to post ten and then not post for three weeks.
I like to hope my readers agree.
Next time I’ll write a little about making goals and how I keep naturally disorganized self organized.
