100 followers and how I got them!

Today I woke up to my 100 follower award!

And I feel like throwing a party! I knew blogging would be hard work and take lots of commitment and consistency to get me where I wanted to be, but the reward of an increasing following is coming sooner than I expected, so that’s just great!

Some of you may have thousands of followers, and my number may be but a pinch of salt to you. On the flip side some of you might only have a couple of followers to your name so far and want to know more about how you can hit that 💯! So here are my three top tips for successful blogging!

1: Post consistently

As much as blogging is done for fun, if you’re wanting to build up a good following, you need to give something back! Regular posts will keep your followers interested. If you only blog every couple of weeks, your blog isn’t going to gain any momentum!

Set yourself the task of sitting down and working out how regularly you can write a good blog post. You might find you can write one every Monday, Thursday and Sunday. Or like me, you could blog daily! It just depends on your schedule and how you decide to fit blogging in! I wake up a little earlier than I used to now, so that I can make sure I have a good blog posted before I go to work!

2: TALK TO OTHER BLOGGERS!

I can not say this enough! Your blog is ran by you and you alone. But the blogging world is not a lonely place to live… it is rich with information and people that have the same interests as you, and indeed have something to share. Get out into the blogging community and share your thoughts on others posts, if you like the blog, give it a follow. It is that simple. I have picked up so many tips from my fellow bloggers and I have had fun reaching out to others to share a kind word.

If you’re not reaching out to other people, why should people take an interest in what you’re saying? We can all grow together, imagine how good it would feel if you rose to success along with the people who stuck with you from the beginning? HELL YEAH!

3: Make use of the tags!

This is a pretty simple one, when you’ve finally got to the end of your blog post, make sure you tag the topics your blog covers! If you write about fashion, tag fashion. This way people who are interested in he same subjects as you will see your posts! It’s no good blogging into thin air, you will find it a lot harder to gain readers this way! You can add up to 15 tags per post so USE THEM!

_________________________________________________

As a final note I would just like to thank every single one of my followers! You’re awesome, and a special thanks to those of you that take the time out to read my posts and share your likes and thoughts! It means the world to me, and to say thank you I will be doing a 200 follower giveaway so keep your eyes peeled for that because I’m going to be choosing some great beauty related prizes!

  1. Can I love this instead of just like lol!! Congrats on 100 I believe I am on 10 I think lol yay for me in the not even a grain of salt column. I believe it definitely comes down to what people are interested in I really need to get on my computer and retype my about me as more of a writer who lives with ailments and depression who seeks to bring some kind of positive out of his writing etc. But mate you will have thousands before we know it!! Glad to be in your first 100!

    1. Ahh thank you so much! And thank you for your continued support! Yeah you’re right on that one, the beauty and fashion field is packed. Also if you are legit depressed I hope you’re getting the right support to help you recover! 1000’s is the dream! I’ll shout you out if I go big haha!

      1. Yes it seems to be filled in every pocket lol so you are definitely in for a challenge there. Depression for me is a life long journey, I no longer take meds for it but am constantly surrounding myself with a good support network, plus I have always used writing as a tool to express how I feel more honestly and deeply just never in a blog till now lol. I try not to dive into it as much as some I have seen, the way they seem to write about it seems to be as if they are feeding it, which maybe could be making them worse but I am not in their shoes. Dream big!!! Woohoo a shout out from a celebrity that is worth two big things 1. fainting from being noticed and 2. a blog about being noticed from a celeb 😀

      2. It’s good that you’re taking good steps to manage it especially without drugs! Sadly it is true that some people see it as something to be proud of and something they don’t want to overcome because of the attention it receives! You’re good with the written word so definitely stick at it! Haha celebrity 😂 we will see I guess!

  2. Congratulations! I’m about halfway to 100, and even getting one or two extra followers occasionally is the best feeling!
    I love when people engage with and comment on my posts too, so I’m definitely making more of an effort to do the same with theirs!
    Fab post 🙂 x
