As a professional blogger I need to make sure my content stands out and I produce quality, engaging and relevant posts. Creative writing skills are not everything: there’s so much more to it. I need to create images that grab the attention and complement the article, make sure my posts are visible, meets with SEO requirements, promote them on social media – generally providing a little bit different post on each and every social platform so followers don’t get bored of seeing the same thing three or four times. It’s a complex procedure but now that my blog is nearly 5 years old – I’m used to it. I automatise where I can and I always make sure that I don’t waste time on things that can be done easily even if they cost money. My blog is also my income so if I don’t invest in it – like any other business – it won’t produce any revenue for me.
A good example for this investment is purchasing widgets that are useful and save time for me or investing in designs I cannot make myself.
I use a mix of producing my own images (for reviews and whenever I can), buying images or finding royalty free images as well as investing in design bundles that are useful for both the blog and social media posts.
You probably know, that people respond different ways to different posts so just like most bloggers, I am trying to mix upbeat and more factual posts on all platforms. It is a lifestyle blog after all, so I share about a. variety of things. But apart from my own blog posts, I often share other’s posts, photos, viral videos etc. because I like to watch these too, so I figure others would like them too. When I spot something relevant as I scroll through social media, regarding a current social movement like Black Lives Matter or graphics related to my niche like ideas on cutting down on plastic usage or anything how to live more waste free, I share those with my audience, because I know they will like it. And often something upbeat and funny like clever quotes. People need a break, not just the serious stuff. Positive quotes are always a winner, they are inspiring.
In fact, it’s a very good idea to create your own little graphics and diagrams – they are excellent images to share on the blog and always get good engagement on social media. (Social media sites generally like to keep the audience on the site. Like Facebook prefers an image or graphic content, rather than a link because clicking on that link will take the audience away from Facebook.) Here can help Design Bundles with their extensive library of SVG cuts. These are very cheap, a couple of pounds each (especially when on sale) and you can simply create interesting and sharable graphics with them buy using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop or Animate.
The latest trends in designs – plus one can use these on so many different ways, not just blog props. You can even get a a silicone cookie stamp printed with these.
So here’s this “VEGAN” SVG file for example, that is very useful for me. This can be downloaded and used in: SVG, DXF, EPS, PNG and PDF.
Or here’s another one, BLACK LIVES MATTER
But there’s a lot more to choose from and the price unbeatable!
