Frequently asked questions about blogging

Written by Celine

11 December 2016

I think that everyone went through that time, that he of she was behind the computer all day all night, to search for information about blogging. Today I tell you my opinion about blogging and how blogging works.

How can I get free stuff for my blog?

Well, funny story. When I just started blogging, I didn’t even know you could get in contact with company or could write sponsored articles. I wasn’t busy with that and I didn’t ask this as well. Still I see a lot of starting bloggers who want free stuff immediately or just blog because they get free stuff. If this is the case, then immediately stop. With asking free products you don’t get anywhere. When you e-mail companies the whole time for free products or even money, then they don’t agree with this. Asking for free stuff is really a no go.


About what do I need to blog?

When I started blogging, this was seriously one of my biggest questions. I was searching a lot and when I look at it now, I think this was really good. I figured out where I didn’t want to write about and where I wanted to write about. I also figured out that I loved writing beauty articles and I immediately wrote a lot of beauty articles. I really recommend to do what you want and what you like. Don’t think all the time ‘oh I do this because I get a lot of visitors’. When you don’t like something or when you like something, then you go on with it. I see a lot of bloggers who say that they stop with an article, because it is not working out and they don’t get many visitors. I understand that a bit, but also not. When you really like something, why would you stop with it?

How long does an article needs to be?

I think that you need to do where you feel good with. When you can’t write more than 300 words, then just don’t do it. Sometimes I have those moments when I can’t write much (or when I can write much) and then I just leave it like that. I am not going to force myself to write more, because then the quality just goes done. I hear a lot of people saying that you need to write an article with around 1000 words, but when you don’t have anything to say, then why would you do that?

Blogger or WordPress?

I started with blogger, because I had never heard of WordPress. Still I went from Blogger to WordPress, because with WordPress you have way more opportunity’s. I am talking about Believe me, when you immediately buy a hosting, then just immediately start with I think the plugins which you can use with are really amazing and also a lot. You have a plugin for everything and that’s really awesome.

Do you have a guide for blogging?

Yes and no. There are of course a lot of books, which I really want to read. It is always really handy when you have a bit of structure in your blog articles. For example no grammar faults and headlines are handy as well. Also I would say that you just need to write on an original way and don’t try to imitate everyone. Of course you can have a couple of bloggers as an example, but don’t copy any texts. Write where you want to write about.

When you have more questions about blogging, I would love to hear that. How were you as a starting blogger?
