HOW TO BLOG LIKE A PRO

Today I am going to share some of my tips and tricks on how to blog like a professional, which I am not, I just like to pretend.


1.
The Desk
You will have to invest and really buy a good desk that you think its perfect for blogging. Before I had this desk, I had a really big one and I just couldn't blog on that big surface, don't ask why - because there is a complex theory of my stupid brain behind it, so I blogged on my bed. It kinda worked for me - blogging on bed, but it surely can't be compared to this desk. If you like a lot of space, buy a big desk and if you are like me, just buy a small one. Mine is from Ikea and I bought two of them for each home, because I am in love with it. The only problem with this particular desk is that if you have a big computer, not laptop, you will probably not be able to put it on, because it has a roof. But it takes little space and it looks cute and vintage. Vintage is so my style. I can only cry when I think about my future house.


2.
Ideas and brainstorming 
Being notebook-obsessed person, it is only right to plan and brainstorm before I actually write something that a lot of people will read. But to be completely honest here, when I am feeling down, I usually don't, I just write. But a lot of times, thats not the case. I have at least 10 notebooks to write things down. This one is just my newest favourite member. If I can tell you something about how to choose a perfect planner or notebook, I must mention that the key in picking one is thick pages. Of course it has to be beautiful and all, but the one thing most bloggers I know do, is highlighting and using colours and they normally write with pen. So, maybe invest in a good one - mine was 22 €, which is a lot of money for a notebook, that is not even a planner. But this year I decided that I will make my own personal planner and just put whatever I want in it. When you get a planner, just carry it around with you and when you will get a cool idea, just write it down and brainstorm on that idea and later on you will be able to make a better blog on it.


3.
Treats and coffee
Recently I made a deal with my friend, to only eat fruit and vegetables and ice cream, so here you see only the good things I eat, don't take it that I only eat healthy, because I really don't. But one thing that helps me blog and just focus more is if I make myself something to eat. And of course coffee. I can't even blog without coffee, which is probably bad, but I like to sip it while I write. It became like a thing for me, before I write I make myself a cup of coffee and something yummy and then blog just writes itself hah. One thing that I would also highly suggest is to drink a lot of water, not because it will make you a better blogger, but it will make you feel better and you will blog better if you will feel alright. Yes, you will go pee at least 5 times, because coffee + water = peeing. But it is really good for you. *Not sponsored by Jana, but Jana bottles are amazing.


4.
Good Camera
All I am telling you to do is to invest a lot of money into blogging, but it is true, if you want a good blog and good content, you will have to invest. And a good camera is probably the biggest investment and you will have to do it eventually. The first thing people see on your blog are pictures and if they are not pretty, they will click away and that is the sad truth, because your content could really be amazing, but it won't interest others because of bad photos. I try to always put pictures in a blog as well. I started with phone camera, then I bought Canon 1100D and now I have Canon 700D and underwater camera and fancy things. As you start you will have to really put your heart and soul into your blogs, so that you will be able to make that money back with blogging. But if it is what you like to do, then it is worth it.


5.
Choose a good theme and template and name
Before I had a blog called Fire Meet Gasoline, it was just Eva Premk Monroe and it looked like this, haha it was white&black, because I thought that was fancy and it had tortoises on it. It sucked, basically. So, I learned to do HTML, even bought a professional to make a blog appearance for me and teach me a few tips&tricks, got my domain and spend weeks looking for a perfect blog name, to really capture my heart and soul. Damn it Sia, making my blog famous. Another very important thing to remember is to have a theme, which I don't, thats why I am not famous, and just be a beauty or lifestyle or baking blogger and have one day or two days per week sorted out just for posting your blogs. Unfortunately, quantity wins over quality. But don't sellout. Find what you like and do that.


6. 
Music
When I blog, I always listen to music. Not many people can do that, but I can't do it without. My biggest tip here is to use headphones if you want to listen to music. Because you will be more focused, you wont listen to so many outdoor sounds and your mom, who will try to make you do the freaking dishes hah, shoutout to my mom! Well, you have to take time only for blogging. 

7. 
Find sponsors, but don't sellout
I will post a link up of my favourite page for finding sponsors and maybe you can check it out (not a sponsor, just a tip). If you want to make money out of blogging, you have to have sponsors and have a good audience. But do not, under any circumstances, sellout. If you do that, you will just go downhill from that. Recommend products that you like, shoutout to products and things and people, who are really good and don't spend your time writing a blog just to get some money. My best tip here is to just have a good idea for a video or for a post and find yourself sponsors. If you want to make a trip&blog or bake&blog or dog-related-stuff&blog just find brands that you like and send them an email and ask them if they would like to sponsor you. It is that easy.

That is it, for today, if you want me to make another blog post like this, maybe a part 2, just let me know and I am going to do it. Right now, I am going to take my buddy Thor out, and we will see eachother soon. Love you, bye!
