A Blogging To Do List

blogging to do list

Writing any type of list helps me to feel super organised so I thought it was about time to write a blogging to do list. I always want to improve when it comes to my blog so I thought this would be a great place to start!

Create a shop page > I’ve been meaning to add a shop or wishlist page to my blog for so long now. I love how it’s like a beauty or fashion edit of all your favourite things which is so great to look through! I always end up scrolling through other peoples to see what they are currently lusting after too.

Make the most of Pinterest > I’ve never really been one to get into Pinterest but recently I re-joined and decided to give it another go. It’s the best way to procrastinate as I kind of class it as ‘blog research’ to help inspire new photo ideas. (Well this is what I tell myself to make me feel better!) It’s amazing how far your images can actually go on Pinterest as well as gaining blog traffic – although right now I don’t actually know where to start!

Up my scheduling game > I used to be good at scheduling posts as well as social media updates but sort of fell off track with the whole thing. Seeing as I don’t have much spare time it would probably help me out a lot more when it comes to advertising my own posts as I kinda suck at doing that.

Have a layout refresh > One thing I absolutely love doing is updating my blog in some way. Whenever I’m feeling a little down about blogging or lacking motivation I always take an evening to update my layout. It’s really easy to get bored of looking at your own site everyday so nothing kick starts my inspiration more than having a little page refresh. Whether that is adding a new profile picture, updating a colour scheme or a whole new look it always helps.

Make the effort to engage more > For me this is the biggest one on my blogging to do list as I can often go totally quiet on social media for days at a time. I’m still learning how to manage the whole blogging with a full time job kinda thing but I’m slowly getting there. I really want to engage more through commenting on blogs, sharing updates and generally engaging more across all social media platforms. Plus, it’s definitely the best way to grow your following!

What would be on your blogging to do list?
