5 Ways To Improve Your Blog

Tips on growing your blog

I've recently been putting in a lot of effort with my blog and I've noticed that my readers are definitely more engaged and I've attracted a lot more of you. I wanted to share with you some things I've been doing to improve my blog over the past few months as I know this is a really useful topic to discuss. 

Content
Over Christmas I really had a good think about which direction I wanted to go with my blog and it made me realise that I needed to start creating content that readers would find useful and not just straight up product reviews. I find that posts about blogging tips and useful tips about beauty always go down really well and as these are posts that I love writing I've started to write a lot more of these. 

Pictures
Along with improving content making an effort to improve you photos is probably the biggest thing that will help improve your blog. You don't need a fancy camera to take great photos as phones these days have such incredible cameras, but what I would say you need is really good natural lighting. The difference between a photo taken in natural and bright light and one with poor lighting is huge. This will also give you a better chance of your images being pinned on Pinterest. 

Layout
Having a clean easy to use blog layout is likely to keep readers on your blog for much longer than if they can't navigate the blog. I like really simple chic layouts as I think they draw more attention to the content and pictures in posts. 

Key Words
I know you probably hear this one a lot but adding a few key words into each post will really help new users find your post through google. My one tip with this one would be to just not over do it because too many forced key words would just look silly. 

Mobile Friendly 
Making my blog mobile friendly is probably the thing that has helped my blog grow more than anything and when I say mobile friendly I mean having a layout specifically designed for mobiles. My template is from Pipdig and with it comes a free mobile template that looks beautiful and sleek on all devices.
